There is nothing to change , should start charging automaticlly.....I would recommend installing the new battery , plugging in the laptop and keeping it off....see if that gets it charged up. It could be that it is just fully drained.

Also , did you have problems with charging with your last battery? It could be possible that your charger is shot , thats why none of the batterie's charged.

My thinkpad does not hold a charge it only work with the power supply hooked up.


Make sure the battery contacts are clean. If it won't hold a charge then you probably need a new battery. Batteries only last a couple of years.

T20 wont turn on


make sure the battery is unplugged from the laptop and only hook up the ac adapter. If you can't get it to turn on then try anotherr knowng good working adapter and if it still can't turn on then the motherboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

T20 batteries wont stay charged


It might be that you are using older batteries. However, you should try dimming your backlight to the lowest possible setting and performing any other power-saving actions such as limiting the processor's power (if available on your laptop.) Hope this helps.

IBM LAPTOP T40- NO POWER


I had a T20 with the same problem.  Com to find out it was a bad power supply cord.  Replace the whole thing.  Get one off ebay really cheap.  That should solve your problem.

BATTERIE


There is no setting to change, Thinkpad batteries work and charge automatically.

If the battery does not work, either the battery is faulty, or there is a fault in the battery charger contacts , inside the battery slot.

the most likely is a defective battery.

Go back to the shop and ask to test the battery on a different thinkpad, if battery works, then there is a bad contact in laptop battery slot. If it doesn't, then the seller must replace the battery.
