Re: need urgent help : staring problem with my IBM T21

Are you saying that it takes pressing the power button a number of times before it will start up? If there are no LEDs on (other than the power LED on the external A/C power adaptor) until pressing the power on button finally works then I suspect your power switch is defective. The only way to fix that is disassembly and replacement. Replacing the switch isn?t too hard however unless you have the tools, time and some experience you might want to consider taking it down to the local repair shop. If you have any more questions let us know and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

How do I replace the ram cards in my IBM Thinkpad T21 Type 2648

Underneath the laptop there are removable panels via small screws, usually the largest, is where the RAM lives, anyway find the RAM, and it simply "Clips Out" via clips at the side of each SIMM. Once removed you can simply reverse the Action.

To my knowledge an IBM ThinkPad T21 originally was shipped out from the manufacturer without a WiFi networking interface, sorry.

Kind regards.

It sounds like your system board is gone. It will need to be replaced. A used board goes between 150 -300 dollars. For someone to check it will still need to be disassembled.
