    I think I have a similar problem but I never dropped my Thinkpad. When I tried to start, only fan works and nothing hapend. I believe it´s something about the lifetime of battery. I tried to start without battery but connected to adapter power, and same simtom.



    Because I have two Thinkpad, I did interchange the batteries and the other one showed some error message related to memory or something, so I´m a litle bit lost in this.

You may have knocked your hard drive lose
are you getting any error messages
you can take the hard drive out put it back in and start up pc to see if that helped.
If the hard drive was'nt the problem you may have caused something else to be lose.
Shut pc down and try hard drive first

IBM Thinkpad does not fire up; batt light blinks twice green, then turnsamber and powers down


I have a similar problem. I get the boot logo and then the system just shuts down. I found the problem to be the fan. Dust and debris clog the fan and keeps it from spinning up. I simply blew air into the fan opening on the left side and spun the fan up. This seems to work for a while, but it appears that I need to clean it more often as time goes by.

After boot-up the system works for 10-15mins afterwhich it freezes ALT-CTRL-DEL doesn't work. Have to shut by cutting power.


it could be that the fan is not working
when its overheated the unit freezes or there is ahrdware failure on the mainboard

IBM thinkpad will not turn on ...had been used for 2 hous earlier..could heat have been the problem


Could have been a power surge that affected it by try a few things to be sure:

unhook the battery and only have the ac adapter hooked up. If you have a green light on the ac adapter then you know your getting power from that.

Try turning on the laptop and if you still get nothing then the motherboard is definitely bad.

IBM,lenovo ThinkPad R31


Maintenance manuals for both systems are on www.lenovo.com/support, under the publications section. But without looking at it, I would say no, the cables will not work.
