I want to suggest you,
first let remove your battery for a while and connect directly to power supply.
and we see. it works well.
if it is ok, you use it.
when you finish to use your computer, let your computer standby or shut off and attach battery back to it. and recharge your computer's battery for using when you go outside.

I have IBM 2628-DRU Think Pad A21m And this PC sets password for BIOS, and I can't use it, because I don't know the password


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

My battery on my laptop a21m, is full but won't work what can i do?


Hello :

I think that the battery is dead . Even dead batteries can show that they are fully charged but they won't work . I recommend you to try another battery before purchasing a new one . If that didn't help , then I would recommend you to check if there's any switch near the battery that can prevent the battery from supplying power to the laptop . Such a switch is not necessary existed . But if it does , then you need to switch it in the opposite side .

By the way : Dose the laptop work by the wall socket without the battery ? If the answer is yes , then the problem is absolutely with the battery .

I hope that will help .

Please rate !

I put a password in for the power on and the administrator things and it turns out to be to long but it let me put it in. now when i put it in i cant put the hole thing in and i cant power up my lap top....


the only solutions i know are both non easy fixes. one is to strip down the laptop and find the bios battery if it has one. then pull it, leave it 30 seconds and put it back in, rebuild and all will be well. the other is to get hold of IBM and fax them proof of ID and ownership (the usualy request although i havent done it with IBM yet) and they have an unlocking set of passwords which is written into the BIOS.

My ibm laptop contionusly beeps and says power scource is battery,when i press esc, it boots normally and shuts down in about 15 mins to half an hour


Either:
A. Bad battery
Or
B Bad power supply.

Sounds like the battery isnt charging correctly , the beeping is warning you it is running out of power.

Take the battery out , and boot normally with the ac adapter.

Does it work?

If yes, Get new battery. about 70-90 dollars.

If no. Get new ac adapter. 20-40 dollars.
