Sometimes (rarely) laptops need a bit of a kick to get them going! When confronted with this particular issue, I power off the laptop, disconnect the power supply, remove the battery and discharge any residual charge by pressing the power on switch for a couple of seconds.
Replace the battery, re-attach the power and reattempt the normal power on cycle. See it that kicks it into action!

Ibm's are very difficult, when it comes to problems with the security chip. This chip's purpose is mainly for bios passwords. If you've never set a bios password then it should not take you to the security chip window. Since it is, I'm going to say the chip is malfunctioning. For this, you will need to contact IBM support.

This machine ran out of toner today, but didn't give a local notification that it was low. I have tried to find the setting to enable this notification via the printer's web page, but am unable to find it....


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
HP toner cartridges for this printer have an embedded chip built into the cartridge that prompts "Low Toner" message locally and will broadcast through its WEB server. Non HP Toner Cartridges or Refilled HP Toner Cartridges will no longer have the chip enabled to generate this message. You can continue to print but the toner level status will not be generated.
Solutions; Purchase new HP Toner cartridge's from reliable source.
Try a third party replacement chip"
