I checked the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?brandind=10&familyind=374625&machineind=0&operatingsystemind=49979&template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FdownloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&validate=true

but did not find any device-driver for the wireless-adapter for your Operating System.

This might imply that the wireless-adapter is fully supported by the Operating System, i.e., no additional device-driver is needed.

Open the "Network Connections" window, and display all the currently-defined network-adapters -- the wireless adapter should be present. Select it, and right-mouse click on its icon, and choose "enable".

How to enable wireless switch on T61 laptop


Welcome to Fixya

The wireless switch is located either on the side of the laptop or infront. You will see an embossed image of a wireless network which means that the switch is at the ON position. You can alse enable and disable the adapter by pressing the F key (F1, F2 etc) that has a picture of a tower that has a wireless signal together with Fn key. On my laptop its Fn + F8.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows


The Hiberfil.sys hidden system file is located in the root folder of the drive where the operating system is installed. The Windows Kernel Power Manager reserves this file when you install Microsoft Windows. The size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the computer.
The computer uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the system memory on the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer cannot hibernate.
Hibernation is made unavailable when you set the value of the Hibernate after setting to Never by using the Power Options item in Control Panel. To make hibernation unavailable, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

Hi, I m really sorry to say that but you have a Server Product and its built to run Windows Server Series on it (or Linux / Novell Netware).
This is the list of compatible Server list
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Essential Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Foundation Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Small Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 W32 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 Novell NetWare 6.5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (AMD64/EM64T) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86-64) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
Here is the link for Drivers
Try to use the Driver for Windows 2003.
It has a Matrox VGA as I know. If you know which Matrox series you have, then Browse here for the Drives: Matrox Graphics Support. Make sure that you choose the Exact Driver software which suites the System.
Note: Not every product has the Driver Software for Windows XP.
Please rate the answer! Thanks for contacting Fixya!

Wireless connnection with my levovo T61 is no longer working.


On many laptops there is a very small dwitch (usually a small slide switch along the front edge) for turning on and off the wireless so that you can keep it private in public areas. Look for it - the light will come on if you find the right one.
