Just to try the obvious...
The volume buttons on the laptop underneath the screen work independently to the volume controls in Windows. Have you tried pressing and holding the volume up button and then playing a sound?

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

Two examples, of a place to buy an IBM ThinkPad T41 DC Power Jack,

2) http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/IBM_Thinkpad_T41/DC-P001

Past this point it's a bad DC sensor on the motherboard.

Replace motherboard.

Thinkpad T41 with XP-sp3: No sound / working fine until yesterday


Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.

sounds like a faulty keyboard to me, I recommend removing the keyboard, and blowing out the connector with a can of air and reinstalling the keyboard. if that does not work I would connect a USB keyboard to make sure it is not a setting. If a USB keyboard is working fine, replace the keyboard.
