Error 0190 means you need to charge your battery. Either your battery is not charging properlty or your charger is not working anymore. If the computer works while plugged in and gives no error then it would be the battery that needs replacing. If the battery is a few years old then you may want to order a replacement. The Thinkpad A31 uses the ThinkPad Ultrabay 2000 Li-Ion Battery. You can purchase a replacement battery from this website:
If the laptop doesn't work while plugged in and you dont get any lights on the battery or power indicator on the front of the laptop then you may need a replacement. Depending on which region you are in you will need a different A/C adapter. You can find a list of different A/C adapters here.The A31 uses the 72 watt power adapters on this page:
I hope this helps.

This could be a problem, not sure if its a software related or if the hard drive is bad. If you can find a windows xp cd. Try and wipe out the hard drive and install windows xp on it. If it goes thru then you'll just need the drivers. If it errors out on you then you know its a problem with the hard drive and you'll need to replace it. If you get windows xp installed on it, let me know and I'll help you with the drivers.

Possible that the cooling fans to the Processor is clogged and so there is heating on the processor going beyond the set limit thereby triggering the thermister to warn and shut down.
This normally happens when the laptop is make work on dusty surroundings/ tops or matresses which can pull up fibres to clog the vent.
remove the fan assembly and clean the section using a air jet and brush , then reset.
