Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook ?

IBM 760L Thinkpad Notebook Computer

\015 Well, I'm almost there! With the help of "HellaNice," I bought a new adapter and drivers that work on my computer (1995 vintage IBM Thinkpad with Windows 95) which is now connected to the internet. Unfortunately, it is operating VERY slowly. I am told that the cause may be the memory, that I may need to install a new memory panel. I am also told that IBM may no longer manufacturer parts for his computer. I am also told that I may need to upload Microsoft Internet Explorer again as there are script defects in the version (5.5) on my computer. Any suggestions about the cause and what I should do, where to find a mew memory panel if that is needed? Final question, the keys on the keyboard are hard to push down. Any way to fix this without a new keyboard? This is a backup computer at home to my newer office computer and I just need to get a year or so out of it - unless I get it purring along!\015\012\015\012THANKS to all of you!!\015\012\015\012Chris\015

Answers :

Most of the problems with Internet Explorer are probably because it uses very VERY old security technology, and most sites won't talk to it. It's probably worth downloading firefox rather than messing around with versions of Internet Explorer; Microsoft are trying to push version 7.0 of IE which really requires Vista but will reluctantly work on XP so they aren't going to be interested in providing earlier OS's with browsers.

Once you get that running, try checking out the crucial memory checker which will identify what memory is running and attempt to find a match. Even if crucial don't have a match, it will be able to print out the details of what you need so that you can look elsewhere.

As for the keyboard, a retailer may be able to clean it, but that's not something I'd recommend doing yourself since it's fiddly bits of very thin plastic, and if you snap one you'll ruin the keyboard altogether. Another solution if you have an external keyboard port or USB port might be a roll up keyboard that can be kept in the laptop bag without taking up much space.

Good hunting :)
