    the noetbook works fine with ac in. when out it boots and when goes into windows shuts of and restarts.

    same thing with 2 diffrent batts, same after clean install, same if you boot into windows with ac in and then take it out. after few sec it will boot again.

Ibm thinkpad r50 wont start

Remove main battery and power on, next! remove one stick of ram and try again, remove the second piece and return the first one, if still no result! check the power supply that it is putting out the correct voltage, if okay! the DC jack in the laptop is a common issue with bad connections, this is where a professional is needed to assess.

Restore default settings for ibm thinkpad r50

Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. thanks and have a nice day J-
