Preparing your ThinkPad computer for Windows XP
Before removing any software or operating system from your ThinkPad system, you will need to:

After you install Windows XP, you will need to install the application software, which is provided in the C:\IBMTOOLS\APPS directory on your hard disk drive.
Installing Windows XP Supplement File

  9. Click Next.

  14. Select the checkbox for Show compatible hardware.
  15. Select a panel in the list you are using now.
  16. Click Next.
  17. Click Finish and then Close.
  18. Click the Color Management tab.
  19. Click Add, and select IBMTPIPS.ICM or IBMTOLCD.ICM under the directory of c:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color.
  20. Click Add and close the Display Properties window.
Installing Windows XP Update Module Package
The Windows XP Update Modules are in the following directory
C:\IBMTOOLS\OSFIXES\WXPUP
The name of each subfolder is the number of a fix module. For the information about each fix module, Click here to visit the Microsoft Knowledge Base homepage, type the number of the fix module you need in the search field, and click the search button.

I got IBM think pad T49 but it is very slow now. Experts said that i need to reboot this computer to get back normal speed but i lost my reboot CD. could u help me to reboot my thinkpad please


Your only option if you don't have the reboot cd's would be to find a windows xp, vista or windows 7 cd. Install windows and then go to this page to download and install the hardware drivers for your laptop. They have drivers for all the operating systems.
At this point install any software you want to use on your laptop. Be sure to go into your BIOS and set the 1st boot device to the cd drive so that way it boots up automatically from the windows cd.

I have an IBM think pad T40 that does absolutely nothing when I try to turn it on. It's actually my daughters, she sid it was working just fine then she shut it down and when she came back an hour later it...


Try taking the batter out and booting using just the power cord and Vice Versus'. Also when the power is plugged in does the charging light (Battery Indicator) blink or light up? If you know the Power Supply is good, then the Mother Board may have fried. If it's under warranty, take the Hard Drive out and send it in.

Ihinkpad T40 HDD failure or something else?


When downloading, run two, maybe, three downloads at a time. You're just trying to download more than the machine can handle. Unfortunately, when this happens you usually have to reload the system. You want to be careful, if you do this to many times, it can damage the hard drive.

You don't say what OS you run, but have you tried reinstalling your audio files? This will probably fix your problem.
If you run Windows XP, 2000 or 98SE, this link will download the correct drivers :
