Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook
IBM thinkpad does not power up. Nephew watching movie on the unit and it just went out. Battery shows charge and plugged into wall unit.
Could be the power button shorted, Does it operate when not plugged in?
The plug jack on the back where the pc would be plugged in, sometimes loosens and needs to be resoldered too. If the pc works when not plugged in, but does work on just the battery.
If no power on during either, it is probably the power on switch gone. Any lights whatsoever showing?
