Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2657 Notebook

R31 freezes up

My IBM Thinkpad R31 began freezing up after being on for approximately 20 minutes and continues to freeze up after being shut down and restarted. I have noticed that my battery light never turns green and the computer will completely shut down when the power cord is disconnected? Any ideas on what could be the cause?

    I know the battery is likely dead so that is why it won't run when power supply is disconnected, but could this cause my freeze ups?

    Thanks. I was told that my computer should be able to operate without the battery as long as it is plugged in. Given that it is an older computer and I am not technologically capable enough to diagnosis and fix it, I don't want to spend as much money fixing up this one as it would cost to buy a new one, but I have documents, pictures, etc. that I still need to get off this computer before it can be condemed.

Your computer shut down due a bad battery, Need to replaced.
Replace the battery first and see if your computer still freezing.

The reason(s) you may experience computer freezes, could be software related or hardware related; perhaps it's a combination of both.
Below is a broad list of some of common causes of computer freezes.

  • Memory
  • Video
  • Device Drivers
  • Bad Motherboard

  • System Resources
  • Software

Two problems with my IBM thinkpad r31 (DVD player and Battery):


Your power plug inside the laptop on the motherboard is likely corroded around the positive terminal connected to the motherboard. Repair places will charge a few hundred dollars to fix this fairly simple problem not requiring any parts. Good luck. If you live in new zealand I can do it for you fairly cheap...

Maintenance manuals for both systems are on www.lenovo.com/support, under the publications section. But without looking at it, I would say no, the cables will not work.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
