The Unofficial Page Logo Hint Page
- Europe -



I re-constructed this page from the originals by Russ Norris to help out fellow Aptiva owners, particularly 1xx and 3xx series in europe, and provide some of the little tidbits of knowledge that Russ and I have acquired in the two years that we have an IBM Aptiva (Russ a M40, me a 172). This page was not constructed to blast IBM. I believe that for its faults, IBM is still one of the best computer companies around and it takes better care of it's customers than do most other companies. Please feel free to browse around and see if anything interests you. If you don't find what you are looking for, or if you know of a trick I have not mentioned, please feel free to E-mail me. Also keep in mind that these hints were developed on an Aptiva 2168-M40 or 2168-172 with Windows95/98. They may or may not work on your system.
