My new laptop battery isnt working properly

I have a old ibm thinkpad i series which is now my main computer untill i repair my desktop, i ordered a new battery and got it today, i put the battery in my laptop and it immediatly found it, but then i noticed it got to 99% awful fast, so i dissconnected my charger and the laptop just shut off just like there wasnt even a battery in it, so i went searching for another battery for it and found one at a local school's supplies closet, bought it off of them for $15 and popped it into the computer, again it jumped to 99% really fast, so now i think it is a bios problem, but i cant seem to find a bios update, it is a ibm thinkpad i-series 1120 type: 1161
please help me on determining if it is the bios and findind a bios update for me, highly appreicated

I do not think this is a bios issue here you said when you unpluged the AC you laptop shuts off then the problem is within the computer itself and not the computers bios.

    Well if you have been repairing laptops for a while you wouldknow there is no fuse, Also the problem you seem to be having is not with the bios at all this does not control AC or DC current all it does is check to see if its charged, The chargin unit in this laptop I am afraid is part of the main board and this would need to be replaced/repaired.

Sounds like the battery isnt charging correctly , the beeping is warning you it is running out of power.

Take the battery out , and boot normally with the ac adapter.

Does it work?

If yes, Get new battery. about 70-90 dollars.

Dear soldiers mom,

In order to check that the laptop has a working ac adapter (and that the DC power plug is working) remove the battery and connect the ac mains adapter to the laptop. If it powers on and and does anything ..such as loading windows then the machine is getting power ok.

To check that the battery is working fine do exactly the opposite. Remove the AC adapter, put the battery-ies in the laptop and switch it on.

The manual of the laptop is to be found on the following link. This explains a lot about it including the keys on the keyboard and all its functions. (Simply left click and the download will start)

The ThinkPad Setup Guide provides the following features:
- an unpacking checklist
- How to set up your computer
- How to turn on the system
- How to use the trackpoint pointing device
- How to use the volume control buttons
- How to use IBM Access ThinkPad

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/27p2155.pdf

Please also find available a Hardware Guide. This file contains the Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM), October 2001 edition, part number 23P0896.

This HMM contains information regarding hardware installation and removal; diagnostics and troubleshooting; hardware interfaces; and replacement (FRU) part numbers.

Ibm screen error


161 - Dead CMOS battery.
163 - Date and time are not set clock not updated.

Replace CMOS Batt: On the bottom of the laptop you will see a screw that holds the memory cover on. (Next to the main Batt) Remove the screw and cover. The CMOS is plugged into the motherboard it is yellow and round tucked in the side of the case. (note how the black cable is towards the center of the laptop and the positive red cable is towards the side of the laptop). Remove the cable connector from the motherboard and pull out the old battery. This can be done by either gently pulling on the cables or using an object like a toothpick and gently tugging at the old battery to free it. With the old battery removed plug in the new battery with the black ground cable towards the center of the laptop and the red towards the side of the laptop. Insert the new battery into the space the previous one set at. Reconnect the memory cover and turn on your laptop. You will have to set the time and date and may have to cycle the computer (reboot) a few times. You can get this battery (CMOS) on eBay or at a computer store they are only a few dollars. (5-8) Good luck in your repair!
you need a cr2025 to replace it you have to pull the tabs of the old one off and tape them to a new cr2025 battery.
then
Start with the machine OFF. HOLD DOWN and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE "F1" key. WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1", turn the power on, and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"
This will get you into the bios "setup." You should check the date, bootup order, etc, and reset.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
