    Hi Sir Thanks for the solutions to my problem. I have tried
    without


    Devices connected but still. Again when i switch it on the
    HDD indicator comes on first


    N goes off, then the other 4 comes on n 3 went off n left
    the only power light on.


    But the processor fan is spinning. In this case can it still
    be the bad processor? Any way I


    Will change the processor n see what will happen, Thanks
    again.

Remove any devices connected and power it on by itslef, either on battery or power source, if it doesnt work, it may have bad processor, When they go bad most laptops wont boot period.

    The Fan runs seperate, its conected to the board, If the processor goes out then the fan may still work.



    Im guessing processor or mainboard as with the dells i work on, this is a common problem.

IBM Thinkpad T21 will not boot, worked fine 30 minutes ago...


| | Installing this wireless adapter couldn't have fried the motherboard, right? ||I would not have thought so .. the software may have caused an issue --- as the PC boots tap F8 you should get a menu - choose "last known good configuration" ---- if that does not work, reboot and again tap F8 as it boots and this time choose safemode - then see if you can restore start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore> choose a date to before the data you installed the wireless adapter software

My thinkpad t21 just died! It started 2 weeks ago when I would turn it on, sometimes the screen would not light up or come on. I could see in the shadow, if there was a light on the screen that it was...


Remove the battery and power cord. Hold the power button in while connecting the power cord hen the battery. This will reset the power distribution settings. If this does nor resolve the issue then you need a new power supply. With this machine a new computer would be less expensive.

How to remove the display on IBM T21 laptop


The laptop screen is secured to the laptop with screws at the hinges.
There are usually two screws per hinge. The LCD screen has one ribbon cable and possibly a power connector for the back lighting attached to the motherboard near the hinges. Disconnect these before you lift the LCD off the base, they are under the plastic panel above the function keys next to the hinges.

Hi,

To my knowledge an IBM ThinkPad T21 originally was shipped out from the manufacturer without a WiFi networking interface, sorry.

Kind regards.

IBM T21


i have the same problem. actually its a common problem for many T21 and other old IBM laptops.
i searched that you have to take all power (batery, adaptor)
press the power 10 times and press it for 30 secs then reinsert the battery or adaptor and try to power it on.
they say its done to discharge a certain capacitor that got overcharged after overcharging the battery.
that worked for me before but now my T21 wont start any more with this process.
