Sounds like the laptop has a fault with the hardware regarding the keyboard. hand it in to your local pc repair shop and they will be able to give you a repair price

as a quick work around you can plug in a normal ps2 (pc desktop) keyboard this will temp fix your problem.

hope this helps !

My T23 has been wiped clean, all I get is a flashing bar. What do I do? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!


Go into the BIOS.

Instructions : Keep tapping on the F10 As soon as you push the power button. You might get a screen saying BIOS and also a dialog message saying that save configuration changes . Choose no and press enter. THe mouse does not work on the screen. use the direction keys on the keyboard. Choose diagnostics which would be on the top right corner. See the primary hard drive self test. Do the test. See if it passes or fails. If failed please replace hard drive. If it passes . Then we can try reinstallin the OS.

Hope you have the recovery cds.

How can i clean the keys of an ibm thinkpad T23


1. Purchase a can of compressed air (Walmart) 2. Hold laptop upside down. 3. Spray the compressed air at the keys starting at one end. 4. Keep moving the flow of air from one end of the keyboard to the other in sweeping motion. 5. This should clear out any trapped debris. 6. Repeat if necessary.

How to repair ibm thinkpad t23 laptop screen no light


Yes you have no backlight. The screen is all dark but in the back you can barly see it. You inverter is bad on you thinkpad. You need to replace it. I have a IBM thinkpad 600e and i got one for $9.95 so they can be cheap. They are located under the lcd. When you open it up it is there or can see that it is attached to the light dimmer swicth so you will know that is it. Thats your problem

No video on Ibm Thinkpad T23


hi
i also have a t23, and i have messed around with the display a lot...
there are several things to consider:
1) your operating system. i would assume you are using windows xp, and that you dont get video even before the OS starts up in the first place, but its just something to consider: i have heard of some video bugs with the t23 under linux
2) you should check to see if the laptop display and the video out problems are related in the first place. to be honest, i dont know why they would or would not be related. the display not work because a) its just plain broken (although in this case there are usually some somewhat obvious cracks) b) the ribbon cable from the display to the motherboard could have ripped (they do so very easily). if the ribbon cable is ripped in its usual place, you MIGHT just not have a backlight. make sure that there is nothing on the screen, not just a normal display extremely dark. if theres definitely no picture, then you have to take the laptop most of the way apart, but you can start with just the screen casing. its fairly easy to figure out how to take apart, but you might want to look it up. behind the screen casing you can see the ribbon cable and whether or not its ripped. oh, but before you do that, try turning the led light on thats built into the top of the screen. its also part of the ribbon cable. you can do this by pressing the fn key and page down or something next to the brightness buttons. if that doesnt work then your ribbon cable is either ripped, or of course it could just be a motherboard problem in which case all of what ive said is fairly useless information. if you want you can also take off the keyboard and top casing from the screws in the bottom and look at where the ribbon cable (and maybe the video out too) meets the motherboard, just in case theres an obvious problem or disconnect. it probably wont be very obvious. however, if you do discover fairly surely that it is the ribbon cable, then you can get them for very cheap. search "ibm thinkpad lcd video cable t23"
hope i could be of some help

IBM t20/t23


Hey, Laptops are very fragile and sensitive components! If you feel that you are capable of task like this then godspeed! Something like that could be three things! 1.) Your screen inverter has gone bad! The inverter is the device that provide high voltage power to the lamps in your screen! 2.) The lamps in your screen are bad! These things are usually rated for like 50000 hours. 3.) It could be as simple as servicing the laptop(cleaning up the contacts and ensuring good connection) Laptops come in all shape and sizes, and worse some come with a thousand screws of different sizes! It should be relatively easy to take down but the hard part is putting it back together. I have this friend who, after he re-assembled a laptop, always has extra screws!! He says the laptop don't need em! LOL What i would suggest is moving the entire screen, that way you don't have to take it apart to get to the inverter( should be the only other device located in your screen aside from the actual LCD(the lamps are in the LCD) The models sound very similiar but not sure about them either, it the screen looks the same then you can change it! Practice taking down the t20 first then if it breaks you'll know how NOT to break the t23! lol I would always recommend getting a pro to handle something like this though, cause is very tedious you have to be real careful! Best of Luck! regards, babb
