Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook
I'm having trouble with the battery on the IBM thinkpad t22. For some reason it's not charging,eventhough the battery light is green and shows that it is fully charged. As a result as soon as the A/C adapter is disconnected it turns off. So it has to stay connected the whole time if not it shuts off.
I bought a second battery, charged it overnight, but I'm still having the same problem. The battery light is green, which means a fully charged battery, but it's not holding the charge. When i check the power source for the battery it reads that it is only 29%total battery power remaining. That's with the new battery and it connected to the A?C adapter.
Basically the batteries aren't charging. Could it be that both batteries are dead, even the new one? Or something else?
Did you try buyinga new battery? They only recharge so many times, you know,

Since this is an older machine, the performance can't be boosted very much. The maximum performance you can get from this machine is 1ghz processor, with 512mb RAM. The 1ghz processor is the biggest processor that is compatible, and unfortunately, the system is base on a 100mhz frequency rating, so PC100 memory is the only compatible memory available. The maximum chip size in PC100 is 256mb, they just don't make them any bigger, so 2x256mb=512mb RAM. As far as the hard drive, it is an IDE drive, and you can get an IDE drive up to 120gb. These are very good and durable machines, just slow, so if you can deal with the lower level of performance, this machine will last years. Also, these are upgradeable to XP pro, but not Vista.

Sounds expensive, I'm afraid!
Here is IBM's explanation of the error codes.
What your machine is telling you is that a chip on your Motherboard is faulty and the only way to repair it is a new system board.
It is probably worth finding out how much IBM would charge you to repair it but I very much doubt you'd get much change from £500.

Basically you need a new battery. Recharageable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and they lose their full charge capacity as the get older. The batteries will have less capacity over time ie less available battery time, and when it is worn out, it won't charge at all.

IBM Thinkpad T22 doesn't have Wi-Fi adapter installed. you need a USB Wi-Fi adpater in other to have Wireless connection.
You can go for D-Link, 3COM,belkin USB Wi-Fi adapter. Make sure the USB Wi-Fi adapter support the Operating System you installed.
