If you have a network of computers, from time to time you will need to perform software upgrades and install new software onto the computers. Depending upon the size of your network, this can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Before installing software on a network, be sure to read the software licensing agreement. Most software programs only permit you to install the software on one computer per license.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions
  1. Step 1 Power on each computer within the network on which you would like to install the software.
  2. Step 2 Log on to each computer with the administrator username and password. If the network administrator has not established a username and password for the network, you will not be prompted for a username and password.
  3. Step 3 Check each computer to ensure that it meets the minimum system requirements for the software download (for example, the correct operating system, sufficient disk spacemag-glass_10x10.gif and correct processor).
  4. Step 4 Insert the software CD into the CD ROM drive of each computer on which you want to install the software. Enter the software license number or product key code. This will be located in your software package.
  5. Step 5 Run the software installation wizard. Some software programs may require configuration after it has been installed.
  6. Step 6 Remove the software CD from the computer after the installation is complete. Restart the computer.

What is the model of the Thinkpad? There should be a reset hole on the bottom of the computer. Unplug the computer, remove the battery if possible, turn the computer over and gently insert a paperclip into that tiny hole. You will feel a click, hold it there for about 15 seconds. Remove the paperclip, turn over and hold down power for 15 seconds, then release. Put in the battery, plug in and press power.
