You can increase the brightness by holding down the Fn key and then press the Home key, if you press the End key it will dim the back light.

After I pwr up my Thinkpad T42 laptop, windows start up and ctrl/alt/del screen comes up. When pressed there is no response. It also appears the keypad is not working when keys are pressed.


Maybe your Keyboard is defective.

To check, plug an external keyboard on your laptop.

If it's working then you should see a laptop technician for the part replacement.

Ibm t 41 screen is blank when graphic card load is in play


This is a common problem with IBM Thinkpad T40, T41, and T42s. They develop video issue due to over heating.
If you want a temporary solution put some pressure the mouse buttons just below the keyboard and right above the touch pad. Press firmly with your palm when you start the laptop and the display should come back on. Or hold the laptop with your four fingers underneath and thumb on the mouse pad and lift it up so that there is pressure at the point where your index & middle finger are. This will improve the contacts of the chip that is causing the graphic card to malfunction.

We fix these issues all the time. However, it is not something fixable by the end user as it needs professional repair equipment and expertise to get the job done right as it is motherboard level repair.

The cost of this repair is relatively cheap now for IBM T40/T41/T42. It should cost you roughly $80 to $120 to get it fixed (in metropolitan area, in smaller towns repair shops will rip you off). If you are quoted more, then shop around.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T42 and until a few minutes ago my touch pad was working with no problems. I installed a wireless mouse and that works fine. But I cannot control the cursor with the touch pad or red...


Try going to Start>Control Panel>Printer and other Hardware and look for mouse pad or something like that. I think the problem is that you can only use either the mouse pad or the mouse, can't use them both at the same time.

I keep losing my connection - IBM Thinkpad t42


Are you using IBM SW or Windows to manage the wireless? Occassionally, the IBM SW has issues with certain model routers and encyrption types.

You can also try unchecking the "Allow Computer to turn this device off to save power" in the adapter properties and

Adjusting the power on the wireless device to the max. By default IBM sets it in the middle to conserve power.

Ibm t42 thinkpad turned off touchpad in system tray


Any idea why the USB mouse isn't detected? Is it a Special series of mouse needing software?
Does the laptop have a PS/2 connector, so you can try using an old PS/2 mouse and try with that?

Maybe with some short-keys (like Alt-Esc for the windows Start button), you can reach the software or config application that you used to disable the mousepad...

Try that one, and see if it helps you...
