Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
I have a t41 that was given to me that i'm trying to fix. The charger and battery seem to work fine but when you press the power button it acts like it is about to boot up for about 3-4 seconds with the symbols flickering and then it just goes to sleep and nothing can wake it up. No screen activity at all. Any suggestions?
Check that the hard disk is in working order.
If the hard disk will not spin up... sometimes the system will just shut off.
It may be a bad motherboard.. usually a damaged or failing capacitor will cause the system to not stay powered up long enough.. capacitors usually create a steady flow of electricity... if it can't hold a steady charge it will behave as you've mentioned.
