It\'s a bit old to play with but still a workable computer. Find a local source or the internet and upgrade the memory to 2gb or go for 8gb if you can find them cheap. Turn it over and you\'ll see a cover with "MEM" on it. That\'s where you would replace the memory. The memory in it will give you an idea of type that will work in it. Replace hard drive with as large as you can get (refurbished is fine). Again, you don\'t want to put a lot of money in an older laptop. T40 has 1 screw on under side you remove and the whole drive and carrier will come out. 2 screws on each side of carrier and drive can be switched out and re-inserted into laptop. I would load windows 7 on it. By replacing the hard drive it will be easier to reload new operating system. Just go with Straight Windows 7. Download all drivers from windows. This might take 3-4 hours but the unit will run better with less IBM software running on it. If the network driver doesn\'t work to download updates. Buy a cheap USB wireless adapter to get up and running. After all of the Win 7 updates are installed you should have wireless and Ethernet working. If not you\'ll need to go to IBM/Lenovo site and download Drivers that might be missing. You can download all drivers from IBM but then you get all the stuff that you don\'t need.
this is an old model. if your actual specification actually meets Win 7, it may work, however, the challenge would be with the drivers. You can go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support and select your correct T40 edition to confirm the availability of the system drivers that you need after making sure your actual specification like process speed, amount of memory available, video controller and disk space are all met.
Depends on what kinda format u doing..if it's thru the XP Disk ..if it is stuck at certain stage for too long and can hear rattle sound near the HDD ...it's mostly HDD error..Try dos format using dos bootable...or i would try installing Windows NT old version and upgrade..it helps huge some times..hope this is help full..good luck..cheers
you must have a disc of some sort as well as a valid key, otherwise get ready for more running around to buy a new disc..short and sweet buy a disc which has a code from your local retailer, the t40 should have no problem running xp
When you download the T40 device drivers from the IBM/Lenevo WEB site make sure you select your model laptop and, they need to be the XP or Vista versions of the drivers you need. When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers. NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one

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.
