Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook ?
New to Laptops.
\015 I have just bought a IBM T42 Thinkpad, I am having trouble finding the equivalent to the mouse which I am used to. Would it be possible to obtain a keyboard diagram with all the explanations for this laptop.\015\012\015\012Thank you.\015\012MT.\015
It would be in your manual but I know a lot of manufacturers don't even send them out anymore to save a buck. Go to the pc's website and type in your model and it should bring up a manual for you with all the information on it.
