    I would be wary of that because it's electronics. Thanks, tho.

Try a rag soaked in very hot water(careful with it) to wash part clean
then scrape contacts with a knife. when all clean
rub a bit of vaseline on contacts then refit battery
I do this with car batteries and have no problem

Ibm r52 is working with battery, but the battery is not getting charged. Ac adapter is working properly.


Either bad battery or failed battery charging circuit on the motherboard.
You cannot tell which is failing without testing laptop with another known good battery.

I accidently removed the cmos battery of ibm thinkpad t30. After that error 0271: time and date setting appear then power on password show up. I failed to get into bios to change the time and date setting...


Removing the BIOS battery will not remove the BIOS password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. The password can be retrieved with difficulty, it requires you to build an EEPROM chip reader. For instructions to remove this password, please click on this link :-

IBM thinkpad t42 boot up problem.


The most common reason is memory.

First, try to reseat (remove and reinsert).

If still a problem, test one module at a time.

Hope this helps.

Hello all, I have a IBM A21m with a system password


The Power on Password is set up from the BIOS configuration and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. Removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS password, there are no backdoor password available.
There is a way to retrieve the password, but it requires a bit of electronic skill and a working computer to achieve this.

IBM Lenovo Thinkpad R61 gets 1 long & 2 short beeps on startup


Try this:
Open two RAMs, clean them properly and connect only one RAM then try. If nothing changes, then remove the RAM and insert the other one. And try again.

If this fails too, then there is a good chance that you have motherboard related problem

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.

IBM Thinkpad T21


This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.
