Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I have a R40 laptop the battery lasts a long time when charged my issue is if i discharge the battery and then connect the power supply the power indicator changes to AC and the battery indicator light stays orange. The on screen display shows 0% charged and will not show a charge even after 24 hours but the battery is charged because i can use laptop on battery for 3-4 hours again. But if i only party use the battery for say an hour then plug it in display shows like 60% charged and then if i leave it plugged in it will charge to 100% and i am good for about 5 hours. Any thoughts? i down loaded the latest battery driver from ibm no difference.

Check the ac adapter. It seems your adapter is not charging it. Either the ac adapter or your dc port may be the problem. Is this the correct adapter, is it giving the correct voltage. These should be considered also.
Hope this helps you
