T43 won't power on without battery

T43 will not power on without the battery installed and it will not charge the battery when it is. I can charge the battery with an external charger or another T43 and the laptop works fine until the battery runs down. Even though it is plugged in - I have tried several identical power adapters, including a brand new one with the same result. Computer works fine with fully charged battery, but will not charge it

SOURCE: Thinkpad T43 wont get any AC power

I've run into this many times with IBM machines. The power management chip on the motherboard has failed. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.

SOURCE: AC adapter not recognized--battery will not charge.

there's only 2 possible issue with this problem and 2 solution.

Solution 1 update the BIOS.

(for DELL system's it will require that the battery still has at least 10% charge meaning that this solution is not going to be possible unless you have another battery that is currently charged. if so go here ) the BIOS version there is A16, if you have a different version you can update it.

Solution 2 replace the motherboard

if the problem still persist after going thru solution 1 there's only one step you need to take, you'll have to replace the motherboard for this type of problem. I hope you still have warranty for this computer, you can either have it shipped at the DEPOT or have an onsite come out to replace it.

hope that helps.

hit me back on the results.

SOURCE: NEW Battery not properly charging

Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

Thinkpad t43 will not start up after storage of 4 weeks


Take the Li-ion battery out, leave the machine hooked up to the AC power and try to start it. Li-ion batteries have a built in safety mode. When the battery falls to a predetermine level sensed by a chip in the battery pack, it sends a signal to the computer, "Do Not Start". Idoubt that the battery will now charge up as it has locked itself out to prevent overcharging and causing a fire.

Remove the battery, and unplug it from the wall. Leave it for 30 seconds and then try turning it on with just the power plugged in. So without the battery. Best of luck, Ravi Shanghavi, Ottawa

I have an T43 notebook, and I left it (unplugged) for about a week and a half, when I came back to it it was dead. So I plugged it back in, still nothing. I let it charge for awhile until the charge...


Try taking the battery out, and putting it back in, hold the start button till it comes on. If not, it's possible it's just un-chargeable. And you'll have to goto ibm.com to look for a replacement battery. Let me know if this helps

T43 upgrading bios


The bios needs an operating system to work. That's why it's called an operating system. DOS will even work but, you must have something.
