Hello,

It sounds like a new program is preventing normal shutdown. Typically, programs that do that are spyware. I would start by downloading Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Install and run the program and remove the problems it finds. If that doesn't fix your shutdown problem, you can try System Restore. Let me know which operating system you have (XP or Vista) and I can give you instructions about that.

As for losing your hard drive on power off, that is a VERY rare occurrence. I have fixed many thousands of computers and I have only seen that a couple of times. I do it maybe four or five times a day to various systems with no problems. Obviously it's not an ideal way to turn things off, but temporarily its not a big deal.

PLEASE I NEED A POWER ON PASSWORD FOR MY IBM T23


Hi there, sorry to hear you are having problems. Please follow this How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password Using Hardware

If you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.

If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.

  1. Power off the computer
  2. Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
  3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
  4. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
  5. Reinstall the DIMM cover.

If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:

  1. Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
  2. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
  3. Click on the Password icon.
  4. Click on the Power on icon.
  5. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
  6. Press Enter twice.
  7. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.

laptop need a hard drive to start up. the one time start up you see before is just a accident.
as far as battery not charge, that is the porblem you run into, when you get laptop from ebay (taking chance).
