Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook
Computer sat for 6 months. battery is dead, I charged it all night. light went from yellow to green
but it won't start up. push and hold start button and nothing, no beep no hd starting, absolutely nothing. Thought maybe a reset button butI'm told no reset button on a thinkpad. would A DEAD bios battery stop it from trying to start up?
Start your laptop:
Remove the power battery
Plug IN power adapter
Turn ON laptop
It should startup
Allow Windows to load & "settle"
Insert battery (while laptop is ON & Windows running
Allow to charge (again) for a few hours.

The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.
