    My IBM Think Pad, it seems, turns on on its own will. At times it would work just as a normal laptop does but on other occassions I'd have to sit there and plead with it to start working by pressing the power button time and again. Yes, and very many a times it shuts down on its own and starts again only after its battery gets a good beating. I am totally lost.

Sounds like the RAM or the CPU has come loose. Was it dropped or banged around (like at an airport)?

Ibm think pad bios locked


Short pins on the bios chip. I have done this on T42's. I assume it will work on T30's as well. You'll have to search the internet for which pins to short (usually pins 5 & 6 or pins 7 & 8), but you short the pins together and turn the machine on. Be careful! Do it at your own risk. Once you are into the BIOS, you cancel the password settings and save.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2366 won't boot after the IBM Thinkpad screen


you can go to the BIOS setting? if you can,look for "Boot Device Priority" or something like that,it's usually placed on Advanced settings. Set the first boot device as your harddisk,save the settings and restart your computer
Please let me know if it's working or not

Try to power drain the motherboard.

please follow this steps:
take out the battery
unplug the power adapter
press and hold power button for 30 secs
put everything back in
power on the computer

if issue is not resolved. There could be a possibility that this is LCD problem.

I can not detach my IBM Think pad 2662 lap top from the driver


I had the same issue. Here's what I did. Not sure if it will work for you. But give it a try.
1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.
2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.
3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.
4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.

Even if you didn't get try this too.


1. Make bootable CD which contains Norton Ghost or other disk image software
2. Boot your system using bootable CD with Norton Ghost software, u can use Hiren's CD ISO image. If u don't know about hiren just google it.

2. Once you boot up , open Norton Ghost click LOCAL-> PARTITION->FROM IMAGE

3. Now "look in" for "[DellRestore]FAT drive" and select this drive (this is recovery partition)

4. Now go to "IMG" folder and select FI.GHO file

5. Click Open and there you go... Process started

I have a T30 IBM Think Pad and cannot find the wireless switch. Can someone help me?


I don't think the T30 has an actual physical switch for the wireless. The ThinkPad button will show you how to do the wireless setup/repair. If you have Bluetooth on it, the Bluetooth indicator should be near the hinge.

Laptop will not turn on


It seems that you are out of luck. If the power cord does not fix it, the next possible cause would be the main board. Unfortunately, those are usually expensive. If i was in your shoes, I would try to return the power cord and invest the money in a new computer.

Good luck.

Charger pin is plugged in but it doesnt charge neither does the charging lite turn on any idea? can be it a problem with BIOS ?


This is a common problem with the T20 & T30 series Thinkpads. The problem is with the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip regulates & controls the power input & usage, allows the machine to switch from AC to battery, and controls the charging. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2367 beeps 8 times


Hi,
It's your memory, or more to the point, the memory slots. take all memory out, install 1 piece in the slot closest to the back of the laptop, push down on the memory as if pushing it into the motherboard, and hold pressure while booting.
Bet that works. if not, let me know.
I've got the same machine.
Good luck
