    thanks for your help,



    I have tried removing the RAM, swapping them around. so no problem there.



    I have taken the battery out. and turned it on all the lights come on and go off, it gets further i get the ibm think pad screen come up then it turns off!! at the same point every time (about 20 sec). I then have to turn the power off and unplugg for a few seconds plug back in to get it to do it again?



    if I put the battery in again it goes back to only coming on for 2 sec and going off?? strange



    think I should start by replacing the power supply??

This could be a battery problem. Remove the battery and start on the power supply only. If this doesn't work, then check the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's getting the proper output to the machine. If the supply checks good, then I'm afraid that you have a problem component on the motherboard, and will need to have it professionally diagnosed in order to track down the exact problem component.

Where is the wireless switch on my IBM think pad laptop?


the r40 has no hardware switch. it has a software switch. you must first determine what type of wifi card if any is installed. most of the stock cards are intel or cisco and the ibm support site has the software used to control them. sometimes, thru the network connections, windows can take control if the drivers are installed.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.

Here is a link to all the drivers and software you need to put back on your R40 laptop. The one you were asking about is a bit more than halfway down the page, listed under ACPI Power Management. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-46024
