Question about IBM Computers & Internet
When i power on the mother board nothing comes on, when i plug the charger no charge light indication comes on and when i use the charging system and the charger on another ibm laptop the charge light comes on and the board powers on too
The most likely problem is that the onboard power supply has failed, usually a capacitor has burned out. Or it could be a loose DC supply socket (they only need to have one loose pin on the motherboard.)

SOURCE: Sony Viao, won't power up
Laptop motherboard power pin, broken solder connections. Quite common on all laptops. Can be bought from ebay for cheap, if you are mechanically inclined and can solder you should be able to repair it yourself, if not need to find someone who is good at electonics and have them repair it for you.

I have seen this with faulty batteries.
Try changing the battery.
Also, check in the BIOS that the adapter you are using is recognised and shows a state of charging with the battery in.

It's probably a motherboard issue, since you can get power to the board, but it doesn't fully power up. I would replace the motherboard and see if the problem persists. I hope this helps!

If they had you plug in a USB cable to the modem (not even sure how that fit) then you need to work through the ISP to repair your laptop.
The battery probably is charging but sounds like the mobo is fried (like you suspect).
