    it's me again, thank you for the solution but I only recently started
    programming courses so I am not at all familiar with what you are
    instructing me to do. Could you, by chance, post a step by step
    approach to your solution??

IBM created your nightmare when sold out to CHINESE copy cats. Your 2- slot MEMORY BAYS are probably at fault. Wing Nang did not properly solder in the memory bays at manufacture. Try cleaning each MEMORY BAY with CLEAN TOOTHBRUSH, also the MEMORY CHIPS themselves, install in ONE memory BAY, test laptop, then in the OTHER BAY. I suspect T30 will work with ONE of those bays loaded. The OTHER BAY is probably "cold soldered".. BETCHA !!

Hello, I have an IBM ThinkPad t40 and my battery will not charge. It runs on AC power but shuts off as soon as AC is removed.


You should replace the battery. I wish I had a better answer, but that's pretty straight forward.

Two problems with my IBM thinkpad r31 (DVD player and Battery):


Your power plug inside the laptop on the motherboard is likely corroded around the positive terminal connected to the motherboard. Repair places will charge a few hundred dollars to fix this fairly simple problem not requiring any parts. Good luck. If you live in new zealand I can do it for you fairly cheap...

Battery Repair


Repairing a battery for a laptop is not done. They have a useful lifetime, like a car tire, and then they are replaced. The reason for this is the chemicals the battery contains, some dangerous, and the possibility for chemical or electrical harm to the owner and/or the laptop itself. The solution is to buy a new one. You are looking at around $30 to $70 for a battery. Shop around.

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter


If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.
