Question about IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 Notebook

1 Answer

Nothing happens when I open the think pad

I know this is an old 600 think pad with Win 98. I got it for $35 and charged it up only to have nothing happen when I opened it. Is there a button or something I must press to turn it on?

I believed there is a switch for power on and off on the side of the laptop with symbol (I/0)..make sure your laptop is plug in to your power source with the power brick(maybe there's no more juice in the battery)

I have bought new computer window vista when I try to load Photosuite 3 nothing happens is it conpatable

What do you mean by "nothing happens"?
Do you have a DVD with the software on it? Did you put the DVD in the drive and nothing happened? Is your DVD drive set to AutoPlay when a disk is put in it? If not, you can open the drive (open My Computer, then select the DVD drive, and find the setup.exe file, and double-click it).
If this is not the issue, perhaps you have an older version of the software. Usually you can still install older versions, and use the Update functionality to upgrade to a newer version online. If it's too old (like a Win 98 version or something), then you will just have to buy a new version.

My sd 600 wont turn on i even charged it nothing happens

Hi, With how old that model is it's likely that the battery isn't able to hold a charge anymore, I'd suggest buying a new battery to correct the problem.

I know this is an old post, and you likely don't need the answer anymore, but It appears that the programming in the induction pad can get screwed up and it won't actually detect that the batteries are there. By unplugging the station and leaving it unplugged for a bit, then plugging it back in you can normally reset the pad and get it to detect (and charge) the batteries again.

I have an IBM think pad T40 that does absolutely nothing when I try to turn it on. It's actually my daughters, she sid it was working just fine then she shut it down and when she came back an hour later it...

Try taking the batter out and booting using just the power cord and Vice Versus'. Also when the power is plugged in does the charging light (Battery Indicator) blink or light up? If you know the Power Supply is good, then the Mother Board may have fried. If it's under warranty, take the Hard Drive out and send it in.

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
