SOURCE: my touchpad buttons don't work IBM T42 laptop

In this case you probably disabled it by mistake ..and you need to enable it again ..Go to control panel ..and locate the touch pad..and see if it needs enabling . If this will not work ..you have to download the driver for the touch pad..and reinstall it ..or ..if the driver is still in the system it is enough to get to control panel ..add hardware ..and run the add new hardware wizard..This will search for hardware and show the ones which are not installed or ..if no one is present ..select already added and look for the pad..
Or ..I would option for getting into device manager..(right click on computer ..select properties../hardware /device manager..or direct device manager for win7 ..)
in the device manager select the touch pad..and click right on it ..and select update driver..This will start the wizard and install the missing driver if it is still in the system ..If it isn't you will have to install it manually after you download it from the support site ..or from the disk .

My wireless was working on my T42 IBM last week. It is not working now. The only thing that happened in between is that I installed Microsoft Office. How can I get my wireless back? I get a message that I...


For most IBM ThinkPads, the shortcut key to activate wireless is Fn+F5. I am not so sure about this model, but you can try. If this doesn't help, check the Device Manager and make sure it's shown on the devices lists. By default wireless is activated once the driver is installed on almost all IBM ThinkPads. You problem could be driver corrupted or missing. The best resolution is reinstalling the driver so that it'll not fail. If the problem persists, then it could also be your wireless card failure. You better check it twice.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the wireless button on t42 thinkpad


There's no hardware switch to activate and deactivate the wireless networking, but pressing Fn and F5 brings up a menu that allows you to turn Bluetooth on/off, WiFi on/off or both. It seems like IBM isn't satisfied with standard toggle buttons like other notebook manufacturers - even pressing the Fn and F7 buttons to switch between internal and external screens, brings up a menu with multiple display settings and resolutions.
Hope this helps,
