Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

1 Answer

Reply: lenovo Q.

My lenovo laptop does not turn on I have the same problem. My laptop does not respond at all, even if I plug it in without the battery.

I had asked this question and you replied:
first thing is when you hit the power button right after that press the blue thinkvantage button. when prompted go to system restore. good luck

actually, the laptop is a thinkpad G40, but I couldn't get fixya to recognize it. the above solution doesn't work because the computer doesn't charge, turn on, or respond to anything.

    Thankyou for the hint re: getting rid of the ThinkPad screensaver by pressing the Blue ThinkVantage button immediately after turning on the power button. Question though...why will it go like that in the first place...does this means the laptop has a virus?

Push and H O L D the power button for 10-30sec. That works on Gateways might for you too.. then you can always find and press (gently) the teeny, tiny reset button located somewhere on the bottom of the LT

Another possibility... Change the CMOS Coincell under the keyb. It might 'kick' the MB into action and cannot b/c it is dead

Unplug the battery and the power cord. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug back in the battery and power cord. Try powering on the laptop. If it powers on you are good to go. If not try contacting Lenovo support.

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

If the issue with your machine is just caused by a glitch, try to do power drain.
1. First shut down the machine and unplug the adapter and take out the battery.
2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
3. Then put back the battery and plug back the adapter. Try to turn on the machine normally.

If this does not solve the issue, it could be caused by a problem with the motherboard. If your machine is in warranty (or even if its not), contact Lenovo warranty support on this number - 1 877 453 6686.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

Is there power when you turn the system On?

In your case it is very difficult to find out which is causing the system not to power, this can be multiple devices on your ssytem.

trying to eliminate one device after another try following the steps below:

>remove the Battery from the system, unhook the adaptor as well then Press and Hold down the power button for 7-10 seconds to drain any power on your motherboard.

>after power draining the system connect the adaptor to your laptop, do not insert the battery yet, Power the system without the battery, if the system turns on leave it turned on for about a minute then shut it down normally.

>insert the battery to the laptop turn the system on if this turns on without any error then your concern is probably ok and fixed.

>but if the system still does not power up having the battery connected to the machine a device on your system can or maybe damaged either the Battery or the Motherboard having an issue with the battery conencted to the machine...

if your system is in warranty call Lenovo and have it sent to teh service center for proper checking and repairs.

Have you installed the Lenovo EnergyCut drivers? Without it, laptop may not work properly and turns extra hot. Try letting it cool down before you try again.

The problem with your laptop is the battery itself. You said that when you plug the adapter it turns on. Here is a good troubleshooting step you can do. remove the battery and plug the adapter to your laptop, power on the laptop and check if it has the same problem and if not, that means that your battery is the one that is faulty. If the problem occurs even if the adapter is plugged. that means you need to replace the adapter. thanks.
