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.

Activate wireless bottom

maybe your wireless card is bad. Try this, remove the power cord and battery, turn the laptop over and remove the cover that is over the wireless. Hopefully the wirless is under the bottom, sometimes it might be under the keyboard or plamrest.

Anyway, remove the two antenna cables from the wireless card, and also remove the wireless card out of the slot that it fits it. Then after a few seconds put the wifi card back into the slot, attach the antennas, put the cover back on and reboot. Sometimes reseating helps.

Just a question, I have a slot inside my laptop next to my wireless network card. This slot has a similar connection and mount. Is this for an additional wireless card or can I add something else in there?...

Wont take another wireless card, some people actually will have the extra card slot for a specialized card that you can use a phone from your computer. Two wirelesscards on the same computer would cancel each other out. From my rememberance about the two slots, is that buisness needs requested two slots, one for the wireless card and the second for the specialized card so the computer can be used as a overly large cell phone, or used by techs in the field to hook up ghost programs and dianostic tools.

My computer freezes when I add ram to the second memory slot. I have tested three different ram components 512MB and 256MB and none of them work. Is there a way to fix or replace the so that I can use both...

Have you tried reversing the two ram modules? Or better than that, install two new 1GB modules. And if you do not want to do that make sure the Slot 1 has the larger of the modules. Do you know that the memory modules both work?
