Question about Belkin (F5U237) 7-Port USB Hub

1 Answer

My Laptop does not recognize Belkin 7-Port USB Hub(F5U237v1)

This hub does not work at all when connected to my laptop. My laptop is IBM T42 and should be able to support it. The power part seems to work because I plugged my notebook cooler to it and the cooler worked fine. But everything except the cooler didn't work at all. Please advise. Thanks.

Try connecting it to another port or the one on the dock since some devices can be a bit picky about what port they get plugged into.

Loose AC Power connector on T42, have to jiggle the power cord to get it to connect and power the T42.


This problem is not a "end-user" type of repair.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for proper repair.

Where is the wireless switch located on the IBM thinkpad T42


Unlike the newer laptops, the T42 doesn't have it's own wireless switch. So in order to get the wireless working, you need to also make sure that the Power Management driver and the Hotkey driver are installed as well.

Load the drivers in this order:

1) Power Management driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4GXPEG
2) Hotkey driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-68000
3) Wireless Driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70504
After downloading it, you must go into C>Drivers>Win>Wlanint and run the setup file from there.
4) Access Connections (Optional) - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4ZLNJB

Power cord does not stay connected in T42. Beeps and will connect, then unconnect 1/2 a second later.


Is your power cord loose. if it is not loose then there is some dry solder in the laptop power supply.Check it out.

How difficult is it to replace the power connector in t42


$300 seems a little outrageous - try a local Mom & Pop PC repair shop. Stay away from those big electronics stores. It shouldn't cost you more than $60. Good luck!

Ibm t42 display turns off as if I had shutdown


You can test the computer this way. Connect the video output at the back of the laptop's base to a known working monitor. If the problem disappears completely then you know it is a screen problem, mostly likely. But if the same thing happens with the known working monitor connected to the Thinkpad, then you very likely have the BGA problem, a part that was soldered less than well (due to the restriction of lead not being allowed in the solder due to government regulations). And it may also be caused by flexing the base due to moving the laptop with poor support for its weight and resulting motherboard flex on rather delicate microsoldering. There are several services that "reball" the Ball Grid Assembly, and there are motherboards available as well that can replace the non-working ones. This is not a cheap fix to undertake but it can be done.

I keep losing my connection - IBM Thinkpad t42


Are you using IBM SW or Windows to manage the wireless? Occassionally, the IBM SW has issues with certain model routers and encyrption types.

You can also try unchecking the "Allow Computer to turn this device off to save power" in the adapter properties and

Adjusting the power on the wireless device to the max. By default IBM sets it in the middle to conserve power.

VGA port problem


That could be a video card driver issue. It seems that when the projector is connected, windows detects it a create another screen using up more memory. Try download a latest video card driver for your laptop http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1rd635ww.exe this is for Windows 200/XP for the IBM Thinkpad T42. If that doesn't work then you should also try updating your operating system. Hope that helps!
