IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

IBM ThinkPad T40: the problem is the following Modem HSP56 MR( Intel) doesnot work, Other devices:Nework Controller and unknown device doesn't work


Windows is missing the "device-drivers" for your network adapter and your modem.

On a different computer, access IBM's ThinkPad web-site, and download those device-drivers for your T40. Copy the device-drivers to either a CD-writable or to a USB memory-stick.

Move the media to your T40, and install from that removable media.

Usb socet loose


This is NOT something that you can fix.
Instead, use another USB port, if available,
or take the computer to a qualified technician.
It's possible that the only solution will be expensive -- replacement of the motherboard.

Use the Restore program.
Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Restore Tools. Then make sure that "Return my computer to an earlier time" is selected, then click NEXT, then click on a date prior to the installation of the keyboard driver, then click NEXT.
Let Restore do it thing and follow the screen instructions.
If you are lucky the T40 will be restored to its previous condition.

IBM ThinkPad T20


Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 PC Problem


usb ports are very simple decices, almost like a wall socket, they rarely fail, and if they do, it's generally a driver problem or the flat plastic pin inside the port has broken. Plus the usb ports are soldered to the board on these models. So, the usb failure you mentioned leads me to believe that that is another indicater that the board was going out. I'm a big fan of IBM, they are very durable machine. They can really take a beating. I cheched out Ebay and there are several T40 series motherboards up for bid. You should be able to get one at a decent price. Keep in mind that any of the T40 series boards will work for you.
