Check the battery is this new? if this is new then this is under warranty. if this is old you may check the connectivity. most batteries have an age life of 2 years. you need to replace this if you think this is already attained the 2 years long service

My IBM thinkpad R51 will not turn at all. There is nothing when you hit the power button. I have over 800$ work of extra's I bought for this laptop. It has a 500gb Processor and the works. It just stopped...

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.

IBM Thinkpad won't work with adapter and won't recharge battery

Well he shorted out the regulator inside that tells the unit the battery needs to be recharged in witch transfers it to AC current, on this unit the rugulator is implemented in the motherboard and that wold not be practical ether to replace unless you find one for parts on for cheap and do it yourself that would be the only way that would cost you less money- thanks
