Your keyboard may be malfunctioning. In this case you will need to locate a replacement keyboard for your system and replace the old one. will take you to a location with multiple options for replacement.

To remove your old keyboard the reverse side of your laptop will have screws that are marked K or with a keyboard icon. Remove these screws then you should be able to remove the keyboard from the framing. There is a cable connected that you will have to disconnect. Pay attention to where this is and don't just yank the cable as it will have a locking mechanism on it that you do not want to break.
The new cable will have to slide into that same spot and be locked in place. You will then put the new keyboard in place and screw it in. This should resolve your keyboard issue.

    According to Lenovo support, error 0211 is a keyboard error - keyboard not working. Ebay sell replacement keyboards for £20 - £30 for your x41 which should hopefully fix this error after fitting.

    ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC: reinstalled the x41 using xp.. cant get the video...

    Here's the link where you can download the driver for XP. Make sure you select the correct family. X41 has two types of unit. Tablet and regular laptop. Make sure also to choose the correct type and model. If you are not aware of this, it is actually at the white sticker at bottom of your laptop.

    Tablet PC 2005 Input Panel won't work.

    Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.
