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?

I want clear bios password of IBM Thinkpad R52.


the password is stored in your CMOs which is powered by a very small battery on the motherboard. Theres only 3 ways to remove that password...

Send it to the manufacture to have them remove it as the following two step call for you voiding your warranty.

Open up the laptop by removing the 15-20 screws off the bottom of the unit, then find this small watch like battery and remove it, keep it removed for about 10 seconds then place it back in the unit.

If the battery cannot be found then it would be best to contact someone who is familiar with motherboard jumper settings or if neither of the previous answers I gave work for you then re-post asking for the specifics of your make and models motherboard jumper settings...

IBM Thinkpad won't work with adapter and won't recharge battery


Well he shorted out the regulator inside that tells the unit the battery needs to be recharged in witch transfers it to AC current, on this unit the rugulator is implemented in the motherboard and that wold not be practical ether to replace unless you find one for parts on www.ebay.com for cheap and do it yourself that would be the only way that would cost you less money- thanks

This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.
