I have an a31 i recently replaced the battery it works fine but when ever i put it for charging and disconnect it when it is done the battery meter says it is still connected so i cant get my real power...


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

IBM thinkpad, will not switch on, no charge light when plugged in?? no lights at all?


1. Make sure your wall outlook is good. Try a different outlet.
2. Test the AC adapter if you can with a multimeter.
3. Remove battery and AC adapter then hold the power for 40-50secs. Reconnect AC and try power on.
Hope this help.

I have a new battery in my ibm a31 but it does not seem to be charging the battery bar is on 11 percent even though battey status says its charging


Check charging with a different charger. Or check the voltage output of the charger. It seems that the charger is out.

My IBM thinkpad a31 on works when i plug it in but i just bought a battery and it charges all the way but when it is unpluged and is on battery power it just turns off


How fast does it turn off? If it is within minutes, then the problem is the battery or the actual charging mechanism that switches from adapter to battery.

If the battery is fully charged and turns off immediately, get that particular part of the laptop checked out. It probably will need replacing.

Ibm a31 0190 erroe


Error 0190 means you need to charge your battery. Either your battery is not charging properlty or your charger is not working anymore. If the computer works while plugged in and gives no error then it would be the battery that needs replacing. If the battery is a few years old then you may want to order a replacement. The Thinkpad A31 uses the ThinkPad Ultrabay 2000 Li-Ion Battery. You can purchase a replacement battery from this website:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=38&Code=02K6646&current-category-id=4364BD0F20B94413B5AD6E684D2848E9

If the laptop doesn't work while plugged in and you dont get any lights on the battery or power indicator on the front of the laptop then you may need a replacement. Depending on which region you are in you will need a different A/C adapter. You can find a list of different A/C adapters here.The A31 uses the 72 watt power adapters on this page:

I hope this helps.

A31 won't boot


if your OS is Win XP then UR MBR has gone currupt . You will have to reload the windows or at least repair it.
1. in repair you wont lose the data but in fresh loading of OS in C drive will delete your data in My documents and at desk top.
2. if there is some important data there then first retrive it by making ur drive as slave in other PC and then do the format.
