    What the Access IBM button doesn't work? I think the configuration software needs to be reinstalled and I don't know the name of it to download it from Lenovo.

I just opened my tablet iconiatab a500snid12914106415 and the home button does not seem to work


there is no physical home button for the iconia. it has power to left. you have to hold to activate. hdmi to lower left. volume is on top. next to volume is rotation lock.. to the right is power and bottom right is usb ports. on screen will be back button, home button. and options button. since these are onscreen you could turn off rotational lock and press onscreen button on a different side.

Very weak sound from ibm t42 thinkpad - internal and exteranl speakers


There are two ways to set the sound on an IBM thinkpad, hardware and software.
Hardware sound can be set via the speaker buttons below the screen. There should be three buttons: Mute, Volume Down, and Volume Up.
Software sound can be set in windows through the speaker icon on the bottom right of the screen. Click on the icon, and drag the slider up or down to change the volume.
If you don't have the correct drivers installed, these two settings are separate (e.g. It is possible to have the hardware volume down low, and the software volume set really high, and still have music playing relatively quietly). I would suggest turning both of them up and see if the sound gets louder.

Ibm t41 sound not working


Just to try the obvious...
The volume buttons on the laptop underneath the screen work independently to the volume controls in Windows. Have you tried pressing and holding the volume up button and then playing a sound?

Onscreen volume display not showing up naymore


Try this out:

Click the Start button on Windows Taskbar located at the bottom
side of the screen and then select Programs, Hot Key Manager,
Configuration from the menus that appear.

To enable onscreen volume control message,
check the Show volume controls onscreen checkbox.

This is the recipe for the 2000-model, but I believe it should be the same for the 5000.

The manual for the 5000 can be found here: http://support.benq.com/files/Joybook/Manual/5000_English.pdf

At the left of your power button, past the word PRECISION, there is a slot for a screwdriver. With the screen fully open, use that slot to remove the power and volume buttons. At the other end of the stip you removed will be the connector that connects the buttons to the motherboard. Reconnect it better.

Volume&thinkpad button


Most IBM / Lenovo Thinkpads have hardware volume control with apropriate buttons above the keyboard (volume up, down and mute). Gnome in Ubuntu is configured in such a way, that the keypresses are trapped (this is correct), apropriate volume window is displayed (correct) and Gnome volume control is modified. Last step is actually wrong - the keys in Thinkpads control the volume hardware directly, so every keypress turns the volume up/down regardless of sound card settings (in Ubuntu case - this would be Alsa mixer). Current behaviour results in volume being changed twice - for example if I press the volume up button, I get volume reduction via Gnome sound mixer plus volume reduction via hardware control. Effectively this creates an exponential (and not linear as it should be) volume change. In short - it is very difficult to control volume, especially relatively quiet sounds, with volume keys only.
The "patch" solution is to decouple Gnome mixer from hardware buttons. Of course it could be done manually, by deleting apropriate key actions in System->Preferences->Keyboard shortcuts, but this also disables windows showing volume. A better thing (but more complex) would involve reading /proc/acpi/ibm/volume and displaying the volume window according to this value at each volume button keypress.
I tested this on T21, T42 and Thinkpad 600. I guess only some R series notebooks (R31 etc.) would not be affected, as these do not have hardware mixer.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Press hardware volume key (eg. volume up) on a Thinkpad
2. Observe the volume change - it is changed in hardware mixer (correct) and in Gnome volume control (incorrect)

I hope this helps...
