Thinkpad X41 starting two short beeps, fan error and shuts of

The IBM POST code states that after the 2 beeps the screen displays the error.
In the case you have a faulty fan and it needs to be replaced.

My ibm thinkpad G40 wont turn on

Check the power source, plug it into the wall don't try to just run off the battery. If it still does not turn on plugged into a working outlet the power supply needs to be replaced.

I have 2 ibm thinkpad R50p. one is constantly shutting down and the other one turns the radio off all the time and I can not get on the internet remotely

the one constantly shutting down may have heat issues. check that the fan and heatsink are not clogged.
the one messing with your radio all the time must be having a wireless RF interference problem or something. Try turning the wifi off and plugging it in with a CAT5 cord.

When i start my laptop nothing happens except i hear i beep.I press the power button again and i hear one beep.After about six times an xp page comes on that says windows did not load sucessfully.I go to...

Try starting windows in safe mode by tapping F8 repeatedly right after you press the power button - a black and white screen will appear asking if you want to start in safe mode - the arrow keys select the mode, press enter, let it load fully then use the start menu to shut down and restart normally. Windows is simply telling you it cannot load properly this restores a good configuration again for it to use. Regarding wiggling the power cord - possibly the plugin is either loose or broken inside and the joints that connect it may have to be resoldered, the case has to be taken apart for that. One beep usually means all is well on IBM, three beeps indicate a problem, not necessarily only memory. The bios (F1 or F2 usually) may contain an error log indicating exactly what the problem is and will be indicated by a number code - IBM has a list on their site of what the number codes mean. Occasionally the error code may display on the screen upper corner on start up if you wait for it to show after the beeps.

IBM ThinkPad G40 2388 No power

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's working, or has the proper output. If the supply is good, then the problem is most likely going to be with the power management system on the motherboard, and the motherboard will have to be replaced. This could be a serious problem, so If it's not the power supply, I would recommend that you take it to a service shop in your area to have the exact problem area tracked down. A power management system failure is common in these machines, but there are a few other replaceable board components that can cause this as well.

ERROR 0271

Are you a computer whizz? (do you know a lot about computers like me?)

Could be the Cpu fan (Central Processing Unit)
That could be lethal to the laptop.
Just as well it's a IBM other wise . . .
As for the error it means the time and date are not set.
soloution: run the bios setup utillity to reset time and date.
