Your laptop is in sleep mode. Hence the z. Push your power button for 5 seconds, and the unit should turn off, and be able to boot properly.

Forgot my password to power on my ibm t23 what can i do ?


If a BIOS or HD lock password you are out of luck.

BIOS password means replacement of the system board. HD password requires replacement of the HD and reinstallation of all software on new drive.

This is a security feature so no one can steal laptops and try to use or sell it.

1. Purchase a can of compressed air (Walmart) 2. Hold laptop upside down. 3. Spray the compressed air at the keys starting at one end. 4. Keep moving the flow of air from one end of the keyboard to the other in sweeping motion. 5. This should clear out any trapped debris. 6. Repeat if necessary.

When computer is turned on screen stays black and fan races fast


If you put it in another T23, Windows will recognize the hardware change and ask you to re-activate Windows. Microsoft may or may not require you to pay for Windows again.

T23 IBM will not operate on battery power & won't charge battery.


The battery has likely been charged one too many times and will no longer hold a charge. Buy a new battery.

My ibm thinkpad t23 needs a new cpu fan which i have but cant work out how to get at it


Go to this link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-4UYM3F. On that page is a PDF file which should cover your model. Look at the section called "Removing and replacing a FRU" (Field Replaceable Unit). Look at the one for fan assembly removal. It references other sections that are necessary to get the fan out. When done, just reverse the steps. If you're not comfortable working with small parts, have someone else do it. It's just like working on a desktop, only smaller, more delicate, and there's no consistency between manufacturers.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.


Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

T23 fan error


This is a commin IBM issue fans going Bad ... to try and free it if it's just dust you can actually blow into the vent with compressed air and free up the Fan ... The IBM T series all check fan before powering up.
The replacement is not too difficult to do.
The safest air is the can type to blow in there.

Good Luck

Fan turns on and off rapidly


The fan cycling problem on the T23 series usually indicates a loose solder or missing inductor which is usually on the underside beneath the PCMCIA slot. If you replaced the mobo yourself you may have flexed what is a weak solder joint loose - you will need to pull the board and resolder this or have someone else do this for you. You can sometimes get the laptop to start by flexing the assembled laptop gently around the PCMCIA slot and if so then that almost always means an inductor problem. You can find some photos by googling (images) "T23 mobo" or "T23 motherboard".
