Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook

2 Answers

Hmmm....any ideas.. Have a thinkpad 21m and installed windows 2000. The system is working ok, apart from the connection to the internet. I've used a NETGEAR USB adaptor and it shows on my toolbar as what appears to be sending. I have also used cable to connnect LAN and have the same problem. I know that somewhere i'm over looking something. Even used the 2000 tutor on connecting and thats not helping either. Oh...and the little light on the computer shows as only 1 green constant..no flicker....any ideas.?

Even I had the same problem with my IBM Thinkpad 21m Series. This issue got resolved by installing a network adaptor (IBM Intel PRO/100+mini PCI adapter). You may refer to the following URL to download and install the network adaptor for your computer:

Check in control panel - system - device manager - hardware to see that there is no conflict on the built in network adaptor - click on the network adaptor properties to make sure it is enabled and working.

Why Thinkpad T23 2647 4MP can't conect net after installed windows XP?


I do not use an automatic driver detection program, because they have a tendency to install the wrong drivers.

I look in Device Manager, and use the driver that matches THAT device, the O/S used, and is the newest version, (Date), with all the bugs worked out from an older version.

For your laptop that would be;

Ethernet Driver for Intel PRO/100 VE LAN that is the 49675 version, and has the date of November 8, 2002,

I don't have my model number with me. It is a ThinkPad,that I know for sure. My daughter had music downloaded on it, it is a used unit that I purchased 5 years ago. It is giving her the message: Windows...


It sounds like the registry hive may have outgrown its size limits. There are other possibilities, of course, but that seems most likely, considering the age of the OS.
First, try tapping F8 as it boots up to enter the advanced startup options menu. Choose Last Known Good Configuration and see if it will start. If that doesn't work, you may be able to rename the appropriate files. (See links below.)
If she has a Windows 2000 server based computer, see this article. If that doesn't mean anything to you, ignore that and read on.
See this article. And this tip.& this instruction.
Also Dave Patrick's advice here.
Hopefully you have the installation cds or floppies for the computer, or a recovery cd. Using them, you can boot the computer from the cd into the recovery console, which will allow you to repair the system files.
It would also be a good idea to run chkdsk.
If you don't have the media, we'll need the ThinkPad model number to see if they're available, or you'll have to find another windows 2000 set to borrow to repair the system.
Finally, please see this article to guide you in some needed maintenance that may prevent this from happening in the future.
If you need more explicit instructions, write back and we'll help you to sort it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Icons and desktop not displaying


This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.
