IRDa on Think Pad R32

My thinkpad r32's IR port covered is opaque (unlike others which are amber and transparent) but when i check the entries in my system an IBM IRDa is installed and is working just fine. It comes to me that my R32 comes with an onboard IRDa but the manufacturer disables it by placing an opaque cover that renders the port unusable. Am I correct? Can I take out the cover to enable it?

Change os on a think pad r32


Seems you are attempting an upgrade install. Try to do an erase install / Format Install, most probably it will pick up the drivers on its own if not you can search for the drivers on

Hi i have a R32 think pad.... it cant support my external hard drive.. can i upgrade the hardware.. 1.1 to 2? cant i buy a 4 port usb.. 2.0 and plug that in will it work??


Your laptop has USB 1.1. It won't support anything running 2.0 because of power constrictions. 2,0 has a power line and 1.1 does not. as far as upgrading the hardware, the chipset is not designed for 2.0 so it will run a 4 port 2.0 as 1.1 because there is no provision for power (voltage). Hope this helps.

What are the risks of Restoring R32 Thinkpad using F11 key? Drivers of CDROM & Modem are being prevented from being loaded by certain programs added later on as a result of which these have stopped...


Dear sir,

If you want to restore the thinkpad you must backup your files from windows drive(usually it is C: Drive) By pressing F11 you can restore the system. i.e windows goes back to default settings or manufacturer settings.(Settings when you purchased laptop) other software you installed after buying is also erased.so before doing restore backup your personal files. i think it solws your confusion.

good luck

Hello my ibm think pad r32 is when we give the restart comment tham windows going to shatting down but power not going off


The restart command does not power off your R32 but does a soft reboot of the r32, if you want to have a power down and physicaly power off and startup then you need to select shutdown and then turn the R32 back on manually. Cheers.

I have a Western Digital Passport that works fine


Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA. If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
