Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
Suddenly my T42 stopped charging battery and wont work solely off mains adapter which is still ok and battery is fairly new...
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.
