Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
I have an IBM T41 notebook computer, and it just recently quite powering on. I remove the battery pack and try to run it off the ac adapter alone and when I press the power button all the system lights flash quickly once, and then go off. Now when I try to power it on a second time the lights do not even flash, I have to unplug the adpater (from the laptop) and repeat the process and they blink again. The CPU fan does not come on so I know its not running. When the battery pack is inserted it will do the same thing only it will do it the first time and is non-responsive until I pull it out and repeat with the ac adapter. Could this be a mainboard failure? Any thoughts or potential solutions would be helpful.
Could a MoBo failure or nothing more that a connector- solder problem. I depends on your abilities- take it apart and have a look or Send it to a repair shop or Take it apart- shudder put it back together then send it to the repair shop ;-)
