Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

No power to my t41 ibm laptop

Hello, I have no power supply to my T41 IBM think-pad laptop. Both charger and battery have been tested and are OK. I have noticed a loose wire to the rear, which looks as though it should connect to a daughter card. But I haven't one!!! Weird.... Would this be the cause of the lose of power? If yes then what has happen to the daughter card as my laptop has always worked up until this problem a few days ago.

SOURCE: IBM T41 WILL NOT STARTS UP SOMETIMESTHEN WHEN IT DOES IT FREEZES

Hi,

problems will be with:-
1:- installed memory ( not enough or damaged memory module ) RAM
2:- The Processor ( CPU ) Is Overheating.
3:- Hard-Drive. The unit may have bad or defective sectors.
4:- Computer Virus Or Similar.

Solution:- remove 1 memory module from the computer ( located on the underside computer ) boot the computer. see if this helps. try changing memory between the 2 allocated slots.

Check the CPU Fan, is not clocked with dust/debris. ( Can be accessed by removing 2 screws on the underside or the laptop ) Marked with >> or similar. remove the fan, 3 small screws and brush with a soft dry paint brush or similar, remove any dust from fan and check for blockages.

run a scandisk or hard-drive checking program, to test hard-disk unit et,c.

following these steps, should solve your problems.

SOURCE: ibm t41 sound not working

Just to try the obvious...
The volume buttons on the laptop underneath the screen work independently to the volume controls in Windows. Have you tried pressing and holding the volume up button and then playing a sound?

SOURCE: IBM thinkpad T41 -> get

Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

Chris

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

Two examples, of a place to buy an IBM ThinkPad T41 DC Power Jack,

1) http://www.buy.com/prod/dc-power-jack-connector-socket-for-ibm-thinkpad-t40-t41-t42-r50-r51-r52/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/215782035.html

2) http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/IBM_Thinkpad_T41/DC-P001

Past this point it's a bad DC sensor on the motherboard.

Replace motherboard.

I am using IBM t41 think pad, but from last 2year ...


There might be loose parts or connection inside the laptop. Is your laptop still under warranty. If it is still under warranty, i suggest that you have it repaired at our depot repair department. Opening the laptop on your own will void the warranty.

Thinkpad T41 switching from battery and charger


if the laptop is switching between the charger and battery on its own, then that means you have a loose AC Jack on the back of your laptop, it would need to be either resoldered so its not loose anymore or the jack would need to be replaced.

T41 appears to be dead. I see the power light but


Good day sir, there are several resons why a laptop wont power up, or wont display a thing.
  1. Memory is bad so make sure to check for memory module.
  2. The battery is bad, check you battery with other similar laptop.
  3. The power supply/charger is bad.
  4. There seem to be a shorted circuit board on your laptop ground chassis. For you to test it, you should dissassemble the laptop and one by one reassemble it again.
  5. Mainboard, sad to say if everything else fails, the mainboard is the last culprit. better visit your local service center.
hope this helps, please update me if you may have any progress report on your laptop, thanks
