Same thing with mine...won't turn on properly. Before this happened, I was recieving the so-called "blue screen of death" error message. I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Anyone else recieved error messages. - Rich

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"

How can i turn on wifi?

Step 1:
which operating system ?
For the most part, IBM has switched its focus away from personal computers and more towards large business items such as servers and networks. However, it is still possible to use and purchase an IBM Thinkpad. These are IBM's version of the laptop. A majority of IBM Thinkpads still use Windows XP and offer the function of connecting to WiFi, as long as the connection has been properly configured.

Power on the IBM Thinkpad and wait for it to completely boot up. Right-click the small wireless desktop icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Select "View Available Wireless Signals" from the pull-up menu. This is going to load a small window that displays all of the available WiFi signals in the area. There are going to be padlock icons next to the signals if a password has been placed on them. Click on one of the WiFi signals to which you want to connect. If a password is required, you are going to be asked here to type it in. Wait a few moments for the IBM Thinkpad to connect to the WiFi signal. The computer is going to display a small message window once the connection has completed. You have now finished the configuration, and you can begin to surf the Internet.

My ibm thinkpad from the year 2000 wont turn on. i have connected the adapter and put the battery. i press the button to turn it on but the laptop wont turn on

1st thing you need to do is to make sure the adapter is working.

check to see if any LED indicator lights up when you connect the charger.

if none of the indicators light up with the charger plugged in, you may need to consider replacing your charger/adapter.

however if the indicator come on, then it is most probably a problem with your power/on switch (at the least) or a problem with your motherboard (at the most)
