    Mine did the same up until the point where it quit working unless you press the spot where the hard drive plugs into the motherboard in between your fingers like vice grips and it has become useless.Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

If the hard-drive is losing connection even after removal you should test to make sure that the drive is still functioning.
Try to see if your system has an on-board diagnostic, (f12 on startup, before the windows loading screen) this will tell you if the hard-drive itself is actually broken, or if it is just a connection.

T40 2373 no wireless connection


Hi it sounds like your driver is missing or corrupt , this may be the case if u have recently installed windows, go to control panel click on sytem icon then click on device manager button under the hardware tab, have a look then under network adapters to see if there is a yellow warning icon if so make a note of the name and you should be able to download the driver from this location. its near the bottom under networking wireless.

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.

Think pad T40


It's possible that this is a hardware problem, but it sounds more like a loose connection to me. Start by removing the keyboard and checking all visible connections. You should be able to see the touch pad, keyboard, and screen connections with the keyboard off, and, yes, I realize that you cannot check the keyboard connection with the keyboard off, but you can when putting it back on. For some reason I keep getting people that love to point out the obvious lately, so I'll throw that in there right off the bat. Also check the hard drive to see if it's seated properly. If the problem persists, you may need to take the cases apart and check all connections on the board.
