Reloading Thinkpad T40 Access IBM configuration software

Thank you for helping me first of all, but the end result is that the Access IBM button doesn't work. I need to reload that software and I don't know where to find it or what it is called. If you could point me in that direction, and/or give me the name of it, I'll find it and reload it.

    this is a T40, well it use to be a T41 but when I went to replace the mother board it turned out to be a T40 (which is ok). This whole thing use to work but something caused the access IBM button to stop working. I have downloaded and made operation the ThinkPad Configureation software but I can't get it to attach to the button, and as it relates to the 'Display' - 'On Screen Display' doens't seem to work. I'm sure this a simple problem to fix but I have my moments. Thanks again

I need to know the Model Number of your T41 thinkpad laptop.
You go to Lenovo site go to Support and download section or click to the link....

and browse for you laptop and check the software and drivers and there you will be able to find the ThinkVantage System Update ... check that out...

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.
