Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
I noticed you responded to a battery question on Fixya. I have an IBM T23 Thinkpad where my battery went down in power percentage when running on battery, but when I plugged it in to charge back up, the battery indicator goes to green (like the battery is charged up) but when I turn power on to check battery status, it never increases in any battery power percentage. I know the external charger itself is working because it supports running the machine just fine..... it is just the battery charging that just stopped functioning.... almost like there is a blown fuse going to the battery from the charger. You mentioned to change the bios battery in your response to another person's question. Do you feel this is the case here? If so, could you give a brief description as to why? Would the bios battery actually halt the main battery charging for some reason?
If you have some electronic skills and are not afraid to open up your laptop then I might have a solution for this. It could be a known problem in T23 where one component is loosen from the mainboard and in that case it can be fixed with a soldering iron. Other possible cause is blown fuses. But to confirm this you have to remove the keyboard and do the check.

I think you have a battery problem and that is why it is not charging properly. Its need to be recllibrated. Try this
Run your laptop of the battery until the whole battery power comes to zero. When it does the laptop will shut down automatically. Now connect the charger and try to recharge the battery. Don't turn on the laptop, just switch on the charger.
Wait for about two hours, and start your laptop. If you see the same thing as before, then you might need to change the battery.
