Topic: t43 fingerprint reader upgrade?
Replies: 17

I think the fingerprint reader is the most overrated and underused thing that ever came with consumer end laptops & PDAs in the history of computers. I thought, when I orderd my T43, that the fingerprint reader would be unused. I surprised myself by actually loving it -so to speak. It does make log...

Just checked my T43 and the screw is a standard M3 (i.e. 3mm) and length is about 3mm i.e and M3 x 3. Head is Torx, but that is, to my mind, unimportant; slotted or crosshead would be fine. As you say that you were walking between classes, do you not have any laboratory staff where you are? Anyone t...

As I recall, the first (Rescue & Recovery) has to be to CD, while the rest (Product Recovery -5 discs) can be to one DVD.

1 off Rescue and Recovery

5 off Product Recovery

(I think that it is a pity that you are not informed at the start when creating the discs; after all, what do you do if you only have 4 spare CD's?)

Follow up to above message... Did not read it properly myself. WhatLaptop is a magasine, hence don't think that they actually sell them. They have a link to the Belkin uk website, which has a link to the Netherlands website if that is of use to you ( http://www.belkin.com/nl/ )

Try http://www.whatlaptop.co.uk/YUERZ7FoWel2Yg.html for a Belkin slip case, which looks similar to the IBM one (unless you want THE IBM one...) While a UK on-line store, they may ship to Netherlands (I admit that I did not check) alternatively, I assume that Belkin products are available from your o...

Not a great lot of help toward resolving your problem but, out of curiosity, I tried mine and it seems OK. I set it to trip at less than 85% and it started charging at 84%.

Using NHC to monitor status.

Re: bios 1.25 and EC 1.04

...It also updated the bios to the 1.25 version. But it hasn't updated the embedded controller program. Today I realized that it is still 1.04. When I looked to the ibm's site, I saw that they removed both of them and also a note that the 1.25 bios needs EC 1.05 or higher.... I got both updates, bu...

re:Fingerprint Error Msg

I think that I have solved problem using a process of elimination -i.e. disabling seemingly relevant start-up items one by one, in MSconfig, until I stopped getting the FingerPrint error message. Problem seems to be to do with trying to start up ctlcntr.exe. I looked for ctlcntr.exe" /startup in the...
