I have a T40 IBM that just got the 1802 error. downloaded a bootable fix that I made to a CD. Set both startup and network to look for the CD drive first. Cannot get past the double beep on the POST test...


Hello,

To correct this issue, you will need to remove the PCI wireless card from your laptop or disable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

On IBM's, the Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer.

After removing card or disabling the
mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu, boot your computer. Make sure to update your BIOS. The new BIOS version can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.
(http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-51708.html).

This issue has been corrected in the latests BIOS updates released.

After updating the BIOS, you can reseat the PCI Wireless card or enable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

Note that once you have removed the wireless card, you will not have wireless connection until you update the bios and replace it.

Hope this helps.

My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.


Try these steps:

1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
3. Attach battery and plug into wall
4. Power "ON" as normal

If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message


This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:

Stopping at the BIOS Splash screen


Hi

Reseat all the RAM, CMOS battery and any PCI graphics cards and then try to boot the computer.

Also remove all the memory cards and then turn on the computer. If you dont get any beep sounds, then it is a problem with 1 or more RAM cards.
Then alternatively try with 1 RAM at a time in different slots and check if it is a problem with any of the RAM cards or the RAM slots.

Error message, need help


1. Turn off laptop, unplug all devices and cables.
2. Flip laptop upside down on towel (avoids scratches)
3. Open the PCI panel (you need screwdriver to fit screws)
4. remove the PCI card inside (probably 3rd party WIFI card)
5. reattach AC/PSU cable and start laptop
6 If it starts properly now, you either had a bad PCI card, or it was improperly installed. You can try installing it again (turn everything off first). Sometimes this error is just from the card getting loose, or oxidation on contacts. Insert and remove it 2-3 times to see if it works then. Let me know.
