Sir your problem is very common and only have two possibilites :

  1. Your RAM is faulty and you need to replace it. Its cheap n simple solution.
  2. Also it may be a problem in any component of *********** board and you need to repair that specific module.
Rate me properly if i was helpful to you.

Power problem


Most units will operate with battery removed and charger attached--try that first to see if battery is the issue or not.

Would like to reset my ibm laptop it says my mircosoft online service is temporarily unavailable and my laptop is slower than ever


Hi and welcome to Fixya1

To reset the machine back to the factory settings, just follow these steps:
    • 1 Shutdown your machine and make sure that the charger is plugged in before doing the reset. Turn on the machine.
    • 2 Press the blue Access IBM button on your ThinkPad keyboard at the screen prompt. The screen prompt reads "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button." This interrupts the Windows reboot process.
    • 3 Double click "Recover to Factory Contents" at the Access IBM predesktop menu.
    • 4 Follow the recovery wizard prompts to initiate the factory restoration process. Your ThinkPad will automatically reboot upon completion.
Hope this helps!

My ibm thinkpad from the year 2000 wont turn on. i have connected the adapter and put the battery. i press the button to turn it on but the laptop wont turn on


1st thing you need to do is to make sure the adapter is working.

check to see if any LED indicator lights up when you connect the charger.

if none of the indicators light up with the charger plugged in, you may need to consider replacing your charger/adapter.

however if the indicator come on, then it is most probably a problem with your power/on switch (at the least) or a problem with your motherboard (at the most)

I forgot the password

How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password Using Hardware

If you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.

If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.

  1. Power off the computer
  2. Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
  3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
  4. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
  5. Reinstall the DIMM cover.

If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:

  1. Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
  2. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
  3. Click on the Password messagebox_info.png icon.
  4. Click on the Power on icon.
  5. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
  6. Press Enter twice.
  7. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.
