Does your machine have a built in wireless card or a slot for a card? If not, you can purchese a universal wireless card for you machine at Walmart, Bestbuy, or on line at pricewatch.com. The cards come in either a bus port or usb port style, either will work, and they range in price from $30 to $125. The $30 to $50 range will work just fine for you.

My thinkpad g40 has the following on my screen "resource conflict pci net controller in slot 01 bus :02,device:02,function:00 " how do i correct this?


Dear Friend,

This type of message is commonly associated with wireless or PCI card failures. I strongly suggest you to either update your BIOS (if you can) or disable this devises.

Another way to isolate the problem is to get an external wireless card or PCI network card.

IBM G40 won't reboot


Unfortunately only few people know your problems solution but I'm happy that i can help you.

Its simply a problem of setting HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) type which can be changed using BIOS setup. I hope your laptop must have SATA but if its not working on current settings then please change it to another options available.

Surely, your system will get booted after that and furthermore you can re-install your windows again...

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.

With Regards,
Shyny

Wireless


Since you have the slot for the wireless card, you can purchase an internal card for the machine, try Price Watch or Ebay. On the processor, the G40 came out with Pentium 4 2.0ghz, 2.4ghz, 2.6ghz, and 3.0ghz. any of these will work as long as they were designed for IBM Thinkpad. I buy most of the processors for my shop off Ebay. I would check there. If you do buy from Ebay, be sure that the processor came from an IBM machine.

Graphics


Graphics cards on laptops cannot be changed or upgraded. In order to do this, I believe you have to change out the screen, because graphics cards in laptops are within the screens.

No power, dead machine


I don't know if this will help in your situation, but here is how I would approach the problem.
1. Check the output of the external power supply.
2. Remove the battery, remove and reseat all of the memory cards; Try to power up again.
4. Remove the hard drive, cd drive, floppy drive and any externally connected devices; Try to power up again.
Hope this is of some help in the resolution of your problem, and have a super day!
