    Is it charging? Is the battery the same type specs? Is it a replacement for your laptop? A exact match?

When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

When i start Lenovo thinkpad T400, i get to see a lock symbol with blank screen


Hi sundar1968,


I see that your Thinkpad T400 machine is locked and you are unable to make use of the machine.

to be able to unlock the machine power the system on once turned ON you will see a Lock icon on the center of the screen just press and hold down the FN key for at least 5-7 seconds or if possible untill the lock icons shows that it is unlocked.

This should help you with your concern.

Have a nice day,
