Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I bought a used R40. The battery seemed pretty good and it worked ok for several months. I did not notice the color of the indicator light at the time. It may have been green.
Now, it is always yellow or orange. I left it plugged in over night, expecting it to fully charge. Howerver when I tried to use it under battery power, it would not start up at all. I had to plug it into the wall to use it.
What could be the problem?
Also, where can I find information about all of the indicator lights (for example the battery indicator changing from yellow to green, if this is true) and features of my computer?
The battery indicator showing a yellow or orange indicates that the battery life is over. You may have to purchase a new battery.
Regarding the place where you can find information about these is that it is universal that the orange indicator means the battery is faulty.

Check the ac adapter. It seems your adapter is not charging it. Either the ac adapter or your dc port may be the problem. Is this the correct adapter, is it giving the correct voltage. These should be considered also.
Hope this helps you
