Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

Help! I own the IBM Thinkpad R40 notebook and recently re-installed Windows XP from FAT32 to NTFS I cannot connect to the internet as I do not have a compatible Ethernet driver. Under Device Manager I have 6 Yellow Exclamation Points in 'Other Devices': Ethernen, Network, Mulitmedia Audio, Video (VGA Compatible) Controllers, PCI Modem and Unknown Device. Does anyone have the compatible ethernet driver that allows the IBM 2681W19 Motherboard (R40) laptop to connect to DSL via LAN? I tried the IBM site for drivers and contacted IBM Support 4 times to no avail.

I know that you cannot get the thinkpad on the internet, but you can download the drivers from this link from the computer you are using for FixYa. Download them to a flash drive, and load them from there to the thinkpad.

Had to reformat my windows xp professional on my thinkpad 40 2722. Works beautifully- a clean restart but lost my drivers and cannot get to internet. How do I get the needed drivers back?


Hi there,


If your laptop comes with a driver CD, you can use that to install the needed drivers. If not, you might need to use another computer and go to IBM Thinkpad support website and download the drivers from there. Save it on a USB thumb drive and use that to install the drivers to your Thinkpad.


Go here for the IBM Support Website


Hope this helps.

How can i turn on wireless adapter on the IBM thinkpad R40 laptop.I can't see the wireless adapter switch.......the drivers are already installed successfully.Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!


the r40 has no hardware switch. it has a software switch. you must first determine what type of wifi card if any is installed. most of the stock cards are intel or cisco and the ibm support site has the software used to control them. sometimes, thru the network connections, windows can take control if the drivers are installed

I cant get a wireless connection on my IBM R40 using a Linksys G


I had the same problem with my R40 (2681) and a Linksys G router. The specs on IBM's/Lenovo's site indicate that the wireless card in the R40 only handles certain types of wireless encryption. The newer types (e.g. WPA) won't work on it and they are usually the standard on routers nowadays. My Linksys G router works fine with the R40 with WEP or with no encryption. Not ideal, but that's life with an old laptop.

Lost wireless - Ibm thinkpad r40


haha worrying isnt it...
after reinstallation of windows no drivers for blutooth , wireless quite often modem and same vga,
windows by default does not install because need specific software ...(drivers)
what you need to do is first of all find out what wifi it is ; like wlan400 e.g.
you then need to download and install the driver for it .as soon as the driver is present windows will detect and install device,
look in device manager for devices with no drivers intalled.
same precedure for each device.

Ibm thinkpad r40 windows xp-pro after formatting and re-installing the system, all updates and SPs downloaded and installed, the wireless "disappeared"! the radio led wouldn't lit, in the connection list...


if drivers installed device is looking for wifi manager which is the software package for wifi.
you can goto control panel open administrative tools select sevices and scroll to wireless zero config and press start.
this will then use windows settings.done

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!

Hard Drive


When you boot from your OS CD it will run through Set Up and give you the option to format the harddrive.
Just select NTFS for windows 2000 or XP, or FAT32 for Windows 98/ME.
