Thanks a lot guys. I will mostly use it more emails, MS office, and web browsing. I do most of the heavy duty stuff on my imac.

The best test to see if your USB 2.0 is "good" is to do a 30-40gb transfer. I copy my 40gb itunes library to a USB 2.0 bus powered HD. My old T40 fails at ~8gb point. I am glad people have finally solved their USB 2.0 issues.

If this was refurbished by IBM/Lenovo and you got an used battery then you got ripped off. They should've given you a new battery...unless of course someone else other than IBM/Lenovo refurbished it.

Hi guys,

I need an extra power adapter for my T42. As long as it is IBM brand and outputs 16V @ 4.5 Amp, it's fine for my use. I checked on ebay and they go for ~$20. Looking to get it for less here.

THanks

Also, Anybody has a new to barely used fan for the T42? Mine is getting loud. Thanks

Try connecting via ethernet. Make both C:\IBMTOOLS and C:\DRIVERS folders and run the installer again.
