Re your IBM T30 no sound problem

Hi again,

Any development(s) so far with replacing the internal speakers of the T30?

I took the liberty of doing an "Ask Me" in the event that you could no longer see my subsequent posts/comments in your original post.

    Since the sound is present, then the drivers and speakers are working. However,as you posted the level is rather low which could point to a couple of additional ideas:

    • the new speakers are not an exact match as to the old one, the impedance are high. Pls may I ask, were you able to check the impedance of the new speakers with an ohmmeter/continuity tester? Additionally, does the ratings/specs match the old defective ones?

    • the built-in amp of the laptop is not producing sufficient power to drive the new speakers. Pls try again the headphones and check if the level is uncomfortably loud if all the settings are at max; If yes, then amp is good, if not then amp is weak;

    • it is possible that the headphone jack needs cleaning or replacement also. It has a built-in switch that disengages the built-in speakers when a headphone is inserted. When the headphones are removed, they may not be switching back properly.

No speaker sound

Odds are it's a damaged wire and there won't be anything you can do to fix it. My suggestion would be to get a small set of portable speakers that use the headphone jack.

ibm sound card is not faulty, because you are getting sound with your head phone. The head phone jack have two functions 1. to give output to head phone 2. to disconnect internal speakers when you plug in head phone.
The jack for headphone in normal position not give connectivity to internal speakers.
I think it will help you.

Sorry to hear of your problem. I'm not too familiar with the T30, I jumped over that series and went from the E600/X600 directly to the T4X. I'm going to guess that the T30 is similar to the X600 as it was IBM in the same era. When I've replaced the CMOS in the 600, you have to sett all of the time and date clocks all over again. You should get a couple of error codes on the screen followed by an entry into the bios.

My ibm thinkpad t30 boots up but my monitor is blank

Do you hear any startup sound when you turn it on? If there is, try hooking an external monitor. If it has good display, replace LCD, if not then it may be a videocard problem. possible motherboard replacement will resolve this issue.

Internal fast clicking sound and VERY SLOW computer

Your hard disk might have physical bad sectors so replace it with the new one. RAM has nothing to do with this type of sound.

IBM thinkpad T30 wont load up

Pressing F1 is usually so accept the bios settings. This will happen if it loses all power and the BIOS internal Clock gets reset.

If you hit F1 it should get past that and let you set the clock in windows or you can hit DELETE key right as you tune it on and try and get into the bios. Some systems its F10, which ever gets you in the bios.

Then reset the bios to defaults, set the clock and reboot and see what happens.

Let me know whatever you can as far as details so i can try and help you the best i can.

good luck
