Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61p Notebook Intel Core 2 DUO T93 PC Notebook
Plain and simple, i believe this is a motherboard error. The gist of the story...
I had left my laptop, a Lenovo ThinkPad T61p in my bag accidentally, i assume that when I turned it off some program was still running and it did not turn off. When i next opened my bag, which was an hour and a half later, the laptop was off and very hot, I let it cool down for about an hour or so, plugged it in and it worked fine, except for one thing. My battery will not hold a charge, or so i thought.
The battery report on battery information window assured me that my battery was in good condition, which leads me to believe that this is a motherboard issue. Since I am a college student, i cannot really afford the time to send in the laptop, thus i wanted to look for a quick-fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Excessive heat could ruin a battery. You might just want to get another battery for it (check ebay or Lenovo.com).
One other thing to try is to run it on battery until it is forced to shut down and then let it set that way without turning it off for half an hour to completely discharge the battery, then recharge it fully again. See if that might help refresh the battery.
