How to: Connection Tray

Filed in thinkpad Leave a comment

Had being having this weird issue of connection tray not responding on shutdown and prior to this usually come with lose of internet connection. where the network adapter seems to have weird issues, is like the interface software hanged.

did some googling and found this.. changed the stuff but ain’t sure if this will works. will update.

Go to Start -> Run -> type in “msconfig”
The “System Configuration Utility” window will pop up.
Go to the “Services” tab then scroll down looking for “Telephony” which is very much useless! just uncheck it, click “OK” then you should be good to go!

microsoft is really crap 100% of the time.

update: the method didn’t really help, as i later realise “Telephony” is needed for modem connection, i am using Vodafone GSM Modem. argh. so this don’t solve the problem at all. and i still cannot find the irritating problem.

How To: Fix ThinkPad Keyboard Beep

Filed in hardware | thinkpad 10 Comments

okie, first post, i jus formatted my thinkpad t60. and the first thing that was totally irritating is the beeping sound whenever 3 or more keys are pressed.

so here’s how you can disable it.

1. Open the Device Manager. You can do this from My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager.

2. Show Hidden Devices. You can do this from View -> Show hidden devices.
Okie, this part is quite important, cos if u miss this step, u cannot really proceed further.


3. Under Non-Plug and Play Drivers, open the properties for Beep. Go to Driver -> Stop, and the beeping will cease.
You can also Disable the device from starting up by Selecting Disabled in the startup type dropdown list.
