Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

Thinkpad t23 won't turn on, power button doesn't work, battery charges, tried everything. I stuck a mini pci wifi card in it and installed it then turn it off to restart, it wouldn't boot. I stuck it on my dock and it still didn't turn on, I plugged in the battery which charges but it still doesn't turn on, I opened it up and took all the stuff out, reseated the processor plugged it in, still doesn't work. I'm thinking that my motherboard is fried, any ideas? thanks

Try making sure your keyboard in plug in nice and tight.
If it is, then consider replacing that first. I bought a used one on Ebay and that fixed my powering up problem. The power button wore out.
Good luck!

Cannot get wifi using Anatel 802.11 a/b/g mini pci card to see any access points. Reloaded Xp; all drivers installed (no unknown device drivers); FN+F5 key does nothing; replaced wifi card - same symptoms;...


2 things, did your Wi-Fi pci-card come with laptop or did you bought it later, if its the later it could be a authorizing issue, or else it could be the router misconfigured for the computer like the new routers with WPA2 protocols doesnt "seeing" the old b or g cards in laptops

How to turn on wifi


hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

The ThinkPad uses the following adapters: v 360, 365X, 380, 600: 16-Bit PCMCIA v T20, T22, T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI v T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI Daughter Card v T30: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB) v T4x: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB). 16- and 32-Bit PC Card adapters are configured during ThinkPad initialization. Network Interface Controller data rates are: v For Token Ring: 4/16 MBps v For Ethernet: 10 Mbps...........16 bit PCMCIA 10/100 Mbps.......32 bit CardBus 10/100 Mbps.......MiniPCI and Daughter Card 10/100 Mbps.......T3x and T40 LOB 10/100/1000 Mbps..T42 LOB The MiniPCI Ethernet adapter is accessed behind a removable plate located on the bottom of the ThinkPad directly above the Model/Type S/N sticker. For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.
please go to this link to read the manual -- it will explain the features for this ThinkPad of various series T42 model-type .

2002 IBM ThinkPad T23 battery problems/won't run without power


It doesn't look to me that you're doing anything wrong there.
Was there a specific installation requirement for the battery?

I recently changed my battery on my IBM/Lenovo and all that was necessary, was to let it charge fully before usage.

If you say your battery was charged for "a few days", then I assume there is something wrong with the battery. Next to your taskbar you should see a battery symbol. Double-click on it and you should see the Thinkpad Power Manager. If there is a tab called "Battery Information", see if that gives you more details. Look at the Manufacturing date!

If you really can't run the laptop without being connected to a power source, I would definitely return the battery or at least call the vendor. If your computer is running fine otherwise, there should be nothing wrong with the machine itself.

If you can take a screenshot of that battery information window adn post it here, I am happy to look at it.

PS:
You're doing the right things when you try to use the laptop without an external power source - that's the whole idea, isn't it?

IBM T23 Thinkpad battery does not charge


If you have some electronic skills and are not afraid to open up your laptop then I might have a solution for this. It could be a known problem in T23 where one component is loosen from the mainboard and in that case it can be fixed with a soldering iron. Other possible cause is blown fuses. But to confirm this you have to remove the keyboard and do the check.
