Question about IBM Aptiva E 240 (2158240) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Owners manual, Technical support, PC'd think IBM would have it all but Nooooooo...

I just need the system board layout to my IBM Apriva E Series, Machine type 2158.

I went on a rampage trying to get to the memory cards and unplugged a few things..... Hee Hee

Now I can't remember where they should all go. :-) ****!

That's what I get for fooling around where I don't belong.... A simple diagram would help but IBM has the worst user friendly site I have seen. Ayone know where I can download the copy?

Some of the keys are inverted. For example, when I press "shift" and p to get a capital "P", I get an * instead. Also, when I press "o" it comes up as a "6".

I think the layout maybe changed. Check the layout. Or else it should be the problem with the keyboard. you'll get assistance you can call 18004252666 IBM remote support centre number

I need a fuse layout to deturmine which fuse protects which circuit. It is not in the owners manual. I specifically need to know the location of the instrament cluster.

It should be in the owners manual....look in the index in the back under fuses.

If you still cant find it, goto any GM dealer and they can get that info for you.

I have the same problem with the ibm thinkpad t30

IBM/Lenovo should replace the motherboard without charge, since the memory slot issue is known, even if you are out of warranty.

But, you can fix that front slot by resoldering the pins on the board, using a fine-tipped soldering iron and some flux. Quite often it is sufficient to do only the 10 outer pins in each side, but it's better to do all of them. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

Hope that helps.
