If you're talking about a boot up password for the laptop, you have to open the laptop up and take out then put back in the circular battery. This should reset such settings. You'll want to also make sure the actual battery is taken out and laptop is unplugged when doing this.

If you're talking about the Admin account on your windows installation, you can reinstall Windows making sure not to pick options that do not destroy any data. Alternatively you can use a 3rd party app that you boot to.

If you download the Live CD for your platform it will use a legal method for 'guessing' the admin password.

The display on my ibm thinkpad r40 is black after initial dim ibm screen. External monitor works fine though. This happened immediately after I used my ibm with a projector this morning? Fn F7 does not...


The problem youve discribed does seem to point to your back light has failed on the laptops lcd display, i dont know exactly how this would accure just using a projector though, go into bios again and try loading factory settings.

This problem could also be the inverter if you cant make out even a slight image on the screen.

let me know what happens. thanks

I cant get a wireless connection on my IBM R40 using a Linksys G


I had the same problem with my R40 (2681) and a Linksys G router. The specs on IBM's/Lenovo's site indicate that the wireless card in the R40 only handles certain types of wireless encryption. The newer types (e.g. WPA) won't work on it and they are usually the standard on routers nowadays. My Linksys G router works fine with the R40 with WEP or with no encryption. Not ideal, but that's life with an old laptop.

WHAT ARE THE DRIVERS NEEDED IF I WANT TO FORMAT MY IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 PC Notebook?


is the windows cd for ibm specifically?
if not then you will need:
a sound card driver (optional)
a graphics card driver (optional)
a cd rom driver (maybe)
drivers for usb ports (optional)
and any other drives/ input devices on your laptop will need drivers.
when formatting bear this in mind. All data will be lost! proceed knowingly and with caution. one mess up will land you in problems up to your shoulders!
i recommend finding out how to do it safely
