Use second hard drive


The Windows operaring system is on your 1st drive (ie C drive) and if you change it to a slave drive the computer won't work.
You need to set the jumper on the 2nd hard drive as a slave drive and leave the original drive as the master drive expecially if the 2nd drive is on the same IDE controller and cable as the 1st. hard drive.
It doesn't matter if the 2nd drive is set to master or slave if it is on the 2nd controller.
When you boot up you should see both hard drives and can copy files from one drive to another.

No Sound On My IBM R40


What I ask myself is, If sound and wireless are not working - what else might not be ok until you find out later, when you have documents and applications installed?

I would reset the R40 to factory settings right away. Hopefully that person hasn't removed the hidden partition...
You can check that by going into your Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer->Manage->Disk Management) and see if you see a Fat32 partition usually called "ServiceV001".

Restart your notebook and hit the blue button at the ThinkPad splash screen. A wizzard will lead you through the process.

Rescue and recovery will restore your laptop to factory state. It has an image of their default installation with all the software, settings, and drivers.

After you're done, you have to update the drivers to the newest versions. Look in you start menu and you will see an entry called either "IBM" or "ThinkPad" with a sub-menu that contains the software to update your computer.

If you want to manually update your drivers, go here, fill out the form and follow the prompts. (You will find the necessary information on the sticker on the bottom of your laptop).
It will get you to the right page.

If you have any questions, come back here and leave a comment. I am happy to help!

Good luck!

My usb port is not 2 - I keep getting a message that states that I need to get a hi speed usb device host controller. Where can I get this? I have an ibm thinkpad r40.


On some laptops that are older (an IBM R40 is a bit older) there are no high speed usb ports but if you plug in a usb device that is USB 2.0 into a usb port that is not high speed, the operating system (Sounds like Windows XP) will display that message even though you don't have a high speed usb controller. The USB device will still work but at a slower speed. You can ignore this message without a problem
