    ya, me too, I used it for 2 months and then one day I had no heat in my apartment for a week, but I was using it. then one day it just will not turn on anymore.
    I was only able to turn it on again a couple of days later after I got heat in my apartment, then it went dead on me again.
    no, it's not the battery because I don't have one. I only use electricity plugging in to my wall switch at home.

    it's windows 98SE by the way.
    the problem is the same as the writer here. I press the switch to turn on the computer, the little light comes on one second,
    but the computer does not turn on.

    hope there is a simple solution. i read elsewhere that i only need to reset it.
    reset what? lol
    i am not good at this thing. i look all over the laptop for a reset switch, i don't even know what it looks like, lol.

    A few questions first:


    1. If you plug the AC adapter into the laptop, does a light come signifying that the battery is charging or that the adaptor is plugged in?

    2. Can the laptop turn on with the AC adapter plugged in but the battery removed?

    3. Was there anything odd or different about the laptop immediately before this issue began?

By the way, i borrowed another friend's battery and his ac adaptor and we tried to turn it on . still nothing happens.
only a little light blink as you press the switch and nada...no response.

I forgot the password to log


Hello,
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

How do I replace the ram cards in my IBM Thinkpad T21 Type 2648


Underneath the laptop there are removable panels via small screws, usually the largest, is where the RAM lives, anyway find the RAM, and it simply "Clips Out" via clips at the side of each SIMM. Once removed you can simply reverse the Action.

Forgot password


Hello,

On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

IBM THINKPAD 2648 BIOS PASSWORD LOST


I know in desktops theres a switch inside to reset the BIOS password on the motherboard...you simply remove the pin and boot....then reboot. I'm not sure if it works the same, however since you'd have to replace the motherboard otherwise...might as well give it a try. If nothing else try taking out the CMOS battery for maybe 10 to 20 min.
