Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a 4 yrs old IBM Thinkpad (Model R51) and its USB port is not working. There are some lines on the screen as well. What is the cheaper way to get it sorted out. Somebody told me motherboard has to be changed which costs around Rs12,000. Is there anyway I can get an external USB or get some chip replaced? If yes, then where should I go. Pls help. It's urgent.

There are several PCMCIA USB ports available, I have an IBM T20 and I bought a Belkin USB 2.0 card from ebay for under $20, it has 2 USB ports, (and I've seen them with up to 4) and most electronics store should have them. They also come with Firewire ports if you choose to go that route

IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

As an alternative to replacing the motherboard. Purchase a PCMCIA USB card and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your ThinkPad. Use this USB card for your USB devices, cheaper than replacing the motherboard if you can get one. This model ThinkPad is old.

You can get the stuff off your old drive in your broken laptop... Well thats if it isn't faulty, but if OK, you can take the drive out and connect it up via an inexpensive SATA to USB adapter, then you can just use the drive as normal drive. You connect up the drive & plug it into a USB port & it will show up in MY Computer as a drive.
