I saw nothing helpful in the BIOS. I gave my thinkpad t42p I’m betting that IBM didn’t do anything about the problem prior to the sale and the new owners are still trying to find their feet when it ibn to what they have bought.


I often pick up my T41 on the corner with one hand. So we can see from the numbers above that the processor is able to outpace much larger laptops from just last year.
