Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

Does'nt come on at all

My IBM T23 when switched on behaves as if it has come on, all the caps lock and all show but after that nada. All that is left is a blank screen no booting nothing. I have changed the RAM up to 5 times as previously adviced. My question is, I think the problem is not the RAM, that means should I buy another processor or is there a way to reset the IBM thinkpad BIOS?

Re: Does'nt come on at all

Can you access the bios? If you are able to get a bios screen, the problem is not the processor unless it's overheating really fast. See if the vent for the fan is clogged with dust/hair/etc. Also, the memory is a possibility. Instead of swapping it out tho, just put pressure on it in such a way that it's pushed down on the motherboard. These ram slots are known problems. Try it, you may be surprised. Good luck

You may manually have to short circuit a connection on the inside of your laptop, this would require opening up your laptop. Give me a moment while I find some schematics to help you out.

Blank Screen

First, confirm that it is the screen itself. Connect the video output to a known working monitor and then power on your Thinkpad. if the known working monitor behaves the same way you can rule out the laptop's monitor as the source of the problem. This may be the BGA, Ball Grid Assembly, leadless soldering problem related to video chips on the motherboard, but first test the monitors.
