IBM T43 Power Management Chip

I saw your reply from August regarding a problem someone had with an IBM T43. In your reply, you said it was the power management chip that was causing the problem. Do you know where that chip is located on the motherboard?

Please email me at trip at ecrunch.com

Thank you,

    Hi

    I have a similar problem
    Battery power works but no dc input or charging (psu ok)
    I have opened up and found the following faulty components:
    F2 sm fuse, L63A sm ic, 4890 sm ic (both 8 pin)
    They are all located close to dc input socket - I contacted IBM and was told they didn't sell individual components.
    If anyone has any idea where to get these from I would be very greatfull
    Thanks

    Sean

    I have a T43p and am having the same problem, it will work off battery power only. I've read somewhere that only exchanging the motherboard will solve it. Does anyone know how difficult this is to do? And also, if I get a normal T43 motherboard to replace the one in my T43p, won't it have a different graphics chip that can't be removed/replaced?

Ibm thinkpad t22 2647


Four things that could cause this. 1- power supply, check it for the proper output with an ohm meter, 2- bad battery, try starting with the supply only, 3- bad memory chip or slot, remove the memory, and try each chip one at a time in each slot, 4- failed power management system on the motherboard. Unfortunately, a failed power management system or chip is common with these, and the motherboard will have to be replaced in order to fix it.

Are you referring to the Atmel EEPROM 24RF08 chip?
If so, in the T40 Thinkpad it is under the touchpad, I suspect on the T43 in may also in the same location.
