I had a similar problem with my Thinkpad A31...I did a defrag...then scan disk or some are called Error checking. Both can be found by opening MY COMPUTER then RIGHT click IBM PRELOAD (C:) THEN click PROPERTIES...then TOOLS then DEFRAGMENT NOW button then DEFRAGMENT. After it finishes repeat all above 'till you get to TOOLS...then CHECK NOW. Check BOTH boxes in there then click the start button...then Restart your computer...it will check the C: drive for errors.

Hi have an IBM A21 it will not power up, when pressing the start button the green battery lamp goes off and there is a small flash in the hardisk lamp, and I can here a small "click" the green battery lamp...


If it's not your battery, then it's possible that your motherboard has died (if it was the HD you would at least get the BIOS screen before it stopped). I suggest you take it in to a qualified repair center & ask them to give you an estimate of the repair cost. The A21 is an older model & you may likely be better off investing in a new laptop than fixing the old. Make sure you keep the hard-drive though as you will likely want to get your data from it!

My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?


The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.

Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.

Let me start by saying that there are alot supossed or claim to fix fixes for this on the internet. I've tried them all, and the only two fixes for this are replacing the motherboard or replacing the malfunctioning chip on the motherboard that has caused this. The simplest, easiest, and most of the time cheapest sure way to fix this is to replace the motherboard. The other way is to track down the failed chip and have a new on soldiered to the board. Most people can't do this on their own, and if you can find a shop that will do it, they will charge in the hundreds of dollars. There are several A21 motherboards on Ebay for lees than $50, most have the base that is intact, so all you will have to do is swap out the drives, screen, memory, covers, keyboard, and screen. Then tou're up and running again. Here's a couple of links to help. The first is Ebay's A21 motherboard listings, and the second is various manuals for the A21 to help you swap everything out. Doing it yourself isn't that hard and will save you quite a bit of money.
