Re: Help me install windows!

I'm guessing your problem is the UEFI bios.

Maybe the following helps.

Not sure which ThinkPad you want to see a photo of, but you can find most assembly information (including sketches) in the Hardware Maintenance Manuals.

Re: Bluetooth speaker and windows 7

Re: T42p shuts down under load

If your fan is turning ok, make sure the exhaust port is not plugged up. As brchan suggested above, you may need to...

Possibly an adapter issue. The first DisplayPort to HDMI adapter I got would not pass audio, although it was claimed to. I use the following successfully (both video and audio) on my X220 with Windows 7.

I first started using a TrackPoint on my first laptop, a used ThinkPad 600E. Still have that 600E. Very sweet laptop, but a bit slow by todays standards. Since the 600E I bought a brand new T42, then bought a higher end top-of-the-line T42 from a fellow moderator. Several years later I bought a bran...

Re: Logging in from IPad

No problem logging in with my iPad mini. Tried 2 different browsers.

If you can, try a different browser. You might need to delete the cache of your current browser, or even re-install it.

Probably not your issue, but you might try using a different ISP if possible to rule out issues with your ISP.
