Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

2 Answers

When using my Lenovo T43 and I type the J, K, L, U, I, O, or P keys, I keep getting the numbers being typed that are also on these keys. How do I get rid of the numbers when I only want to type the letters on these keys?

Hi! You're numlock is on. Press the FN+Numlock key. That will remove the numlock and you will be able to type in letters.

Jusy bought a Lenovo Y50. I cant seem to type numbers using the numpad keys (home, page up, etc works when Numlock is toggled). Any advice would be appreciated.

You have to have NUMBERLOCK ON to use the number pad .if you don't want to use the number lock key all the time you can go into the bios and change the setting for numberlock , then your pc will boot with number lock on all the time.

Driver for Laptops IBM type 3273

You didn't supply enough information. You need a model number followed by a type number. Something like T43 type 2685-4YU

This information will be on the label on the bottom of the laptop, or you can also find it in the bios. Once you have it go to the Lenovo support site to download the drivers.

Error code 2010 is definitely hard drive problem.

Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference:
Here's the fix straight from the maintenance manual:
If in the primary bay the customer is using a non-IBM or non-Lenovo hard disk drive (HDD), or an old generation IBM HDD which is not supported by this system, with the risk in mind, the customer can still use it by pressing ESC.
