Re: wILL NOT CHARGE BATTERY
Do you get steady or blinking CHARGE indicator light on the laptop somewhere? If not, the WALL-Wart/External power supply or its connection is bad. This can be due to stressed wiring, bent DC socket or cold-solder joint where it mounts to the motherboard (inside case)... or bad outlet (house socket) or a blown PS

it could be a couple things:
Are you using the standard 90 Watt ac adapter, or the Travel auto/Air adapter. The travel adapter is only 65 watts can will charge the battery
If using the standard ac adapter, see if you can try another Dell D series adapter and see if you get the same error.
If same with another adapter, the issue is the charging circuit. If another adapter works, then replace the adapter.
If the charging circuit is bad, it will be the chargerboard or if intergrated, the motherboard
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
do you have a hard drive install??
laptop need a hard drive to start up. the one time start up you see before is just a accident. as far as battery not charge, that is the porblem you run into, when you get laptop from ebay (taking chance). you also need to download all of the drivers from IBM for the laptop.
If you have some electronic skills and are not afraid to open up your laptop then I might have a solution for this. It could be a known problem in T23 where one component is loosen from the mainboard and in that case it can be fixed with a soldering iron. Other possible cause is blown fuses. But to confirm this you have to remove the keyboard and do the check.
