Yes, just get one the same size (typically 2.5") and interface (IDE or SATA).

FYI: It is important to note that SSD is typically faster than an HD but they use more power so will reduce the battery life in a notebook. I upgraded my notebook to a 7200 RPM HD which is much faster than the original 5400 RPM HD without sacraficing battery life to SDD.

I hope this helps.

IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

Hello my laptop t41 power is not even flash but the adapter is working,am technician and i have troubleshoot allot.


I concur with what Diegotech stated.

To iterate further;

1) The DC Power Jack (DC IN), may have cracked solder joint/s on the motherboard connector, (Female), where the DC Power Jack plugs in.

Resolder

2) The DC Power Jack may be broken.
Center Pin mount, and/or body of DC Power Jack, and/or Outer Shell mount.

Replace DC Power Jack.

3) Wires from the DC Power jack plug to the female connector on the motherboard, may be bad.

Replace DC Power Jack.

Two examples, of a place to buy an IBM ThinkPad T41 DC Power Jack,

1) http://www.buy.com/prod/dc-power-jack-connector-socket-for-ibm-thinkpad-t40-t41-t42-r50-r51-r52/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/215782035.html

2) http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/IBM_Thinkpad_T41/DC-P001

Past this point it's a bad DC sensor on the motherboard.

Replace motherboard.
