Question about IBM ThinkPad A22e 2655 Notebook

1 Answer

Changara I have an IBM A22e Celeron.When I plug in the power cord, the light bulb shows green but the machine doesnt turn on when I push the on button, the bulb goes off for a few second then comes back green again. Someone tells me it is not a battery problem, it could be the switching-on-system that is bad...please help on how to solve this. Regards

Try turning on the system without the AC adaptor. If it doesn't work on battery, then try pressing and holding the power key (after removing the battery) for 30 seconds.
Now attach the AC adaptor and try to power on.
If it doesn't work, it sounds like either a motherboard issue or an AC adaptor issue (possibly there isn't enough voltage being supplied) but it's an odd problem. I hope I helped.
Stay spicy, and happy lappying! :)

Aspire 1 laptop won't turn on but the light bulb


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

My hp pavillion dv1000 wont turn on it is plugged in but the charging light doesnt show up and when i push the power button nothing happens


Problem with your charger, try this :

1. Check whether the charger plug is properly inserted in the Power port/jack of your Laptop!

2. Check the power cord (any cuts OR torn-out)!

3. If above steps don't work, replace your charger.

IBM Laptop A22e Display an error 0175


The CRC error (POST = power on startup test) on boot up refers to the BIOS settings. This could be cause by a near flat BIOS battery and it needs to be replaces. If it is not the battery you need go to the BIOS to correct any faulty settings.

IBM Thinkpad A22e Shutdown early on full battery


First, you should clean the battery terminals. You can scratch the terminals with a metal and then charge. Secondly, you should change your battery, that is, buy a new battery.
