If you are missing your XP disk, you could borrow one from someone else, or look on eBay. If you happen to have a Dell machine, I know that the XP install disks for Dell are commonly sold fairly cheaply on eBay.

    You don't need an XP disc to do a system restore.

When sleep computer doesn't turn off computer


There is a difference between puting a computer to sleep and switch it off. When asleep, (mostely used on laptop) everything stays in RAM and the computer is feeding the RAM, so everything stays correct to be used immediately. When you switch off the computer, in Windows, goto the logo in the left corner, click (left button of the mouse) and chose shut down. On the MAC there are more options, but I give one:
Go to the little apple on the left corner of the screen, left mouse click and in the mene chose Shut Down...
I hope this will be of any help.

I have a IBM thinkcenter 8123 model. I can't install lan due to lac of suitable driver! pls help me!


Go into the bios on your computer and shut down the onboard LAN, find a 3com or realtek LAN card and install it, windows has the drivers build in for most 3com cards, then you go to IBM site, download the drivers you need for the onboard LAN connection, remove the 3com card let the computer boot up, and when it asks for the driver point it to where you downloaded the drivers for the onboard LAN.

Windows 2k Pro crash with HP J5780 printer and M50 Thinkcenter


Assuming you have SP 3 on 2000, it's possible the USB ports are bad.  Try a different USB device ie mouse, flash drive etc to verify whether the USB port is bad.  If this is the case, you can either purchase a USB 2.0 card and install it on your PC or run without USB ports.

How do i shut down my think pad? it will not cut off


In your case,

the most simplest way to shut down your laptop is to override your processing by simply holding down the shutdown button until your computer turns off (do this when all your work is saved and the "Windows is shutting down" mode is on your screen).

This idea is not recommended but will always work.




Hope I helped

How to enter into BIOS when trackpoint was broken.


Hi there.
Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system on creates a 8611 error.
* Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.

Solution
Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error.
See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.

Good luck

Ibm sound card drive


The motherboard (IBM FRU 13R8926) has on-board ADI SoundMax audio. It's used in a variety of IBM/Lenovo desktop computers- including ThinkCentre A50p and M50. This should be the download page for the A50p and M50 models:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-50534

You should be able to use the ADI driver-only download on newer (x86) versions of Windows; although it indicates 98SE/2000/XP, version 5.12.01.5410 worked fine on my Windows 7 Professional install.

IBM/Lenovo lists drivers under the system model number, rather than by component, but you can search the IBM and/or Lenovo site for the FRU number (13R8926, in this case) to find the systems that it goes with, and then pick one of those systems to find the relevant downloads.
