R40 Thinkpad will not run on battery power after update

I recently ran an update windows reccommended. Prior to running the update the computer worked regardless of being plugged in. After the update it shuts down when unplugged. Because it worked fine prior to the update but does not work now I would tend to think it is not a case of a dead battery. Can anyone help?

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

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!

This could be a problem with the battery, try removing the battery and starting on the adapter only. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid it is going to be a motherboard problem, most likely with the power management system, this is the most common area with this type of problem. You can take it in for diagnostics, but I'm afraid you're going to end up having to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.

Audio output


No Audio is usually due to the fact that you are probably running the wrong audio drivers, see if you can go to windows update and find the custom updates, in there you should find the drivers you need under hardware.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.

R40 2724-BU1 Power Problem


Check the ac adapter. It seems your adapter is not charging it. Either the ac adapter or your dc port may be the problem. Is this the correct adapter, is it giving the correct voltage. These should be considered also.

 

Hope this helps you
