Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook
1. It originally came with a CD-ROM that worked perfectly fine. However, I decided that I wanted a CD-RW and a DVD player. So, I purchased one that is indeed compatible with r31 series, and it plays cds fine. However, when I play a dvd it plays for about 20 seconds, freezes, says ''English'' and the volume pops up. It will then either resume playing, or it will start over from the beginning; either way, it stops every 20 seconds or so and repeats the process.
2. The laptop no longer recognizes my battery. I purchased a new battery, and the same problem occurred. So, I have to have it plugged in at all times, because it will neither recognize, nor charge my battery.
Any suggestions/solutions would be very appreciated!
Your power plug inside the laptop on the motherboard is likely corroded around the positive terminal connected to the motherboard. Repair places will charge a few hundred dollars to fix this fairly simple problem not requiring any parts. Good luck. If you live in new zealand I can do it for you fairly cheap...
