Is the battery OK and holding a charge? If not then the AC adaptor or it's connector may be faulty and disconnecting power when the laptop is moved.

IBM thinkpad t42 boot up problem.


The sympton is rather vague, but I suggest the following options, to be followed one by one, until one of them works for you.

1) Boot your system in Safe Mode (if Windows is your OS) by pressing F8 after the usual "beep" provided by the BIOS after it detects all is fine. If it boots up, which takes a little longer than usual, then your system is probably Ok, although it may have a configuration problem.
Reboot the machine from the shut down menu and hopefully it will work Ok. If not, then, depending on whether you have Windows Vista (or better), try:

2) Boot again pressing the F8 key, but this time locate the option that reads something like "Last known good configuration". Highlight it with the arrow keys and press Enter.
If you have System Restore set on your drive(s) your laptop should boot up normally.

3) The last option would be for you to go into your system BIOS and run at least a HD detection test, followed by a memory test, etc., but I would only recommend doing this if you know what you're doing. If not, ask a friend for help.

Memory squish problem - my laptop shuts down whenever I put any sort of pressure on it. I plan on taking it apart and re-seating everything, but are there any helpful hints out there? The 'sensitive'...


have you dropped it or anything EVER? if so there is probibly internal damage and when you push on the sensitive spots, its causing some sort of short. when you say "shuts down" is it really shutting down or just straight turning off? if it just turns of as i said, internal damage. if it shuts down then i might be wrong

Boot sequence


161 and 163 error means you have to change your CMOS battery. open the laptop, change the cmos battery and you should be able to set the date and time.

after which you can access the bios by pressing F1 upon boot up and change the boot sequence after that

When starting laptop on first screen hit "Delete" or "F2" (not sure which one on thinkpads) go into the setup and check the power settings restore to default and save.

If you can make the problem come and go by slightly twisting or flexing the bottom (keyboard) section of the case, you may have a loose internal connector. If the laptop has been dropped recently, more probably you have a cracked land pattern on the motherboard.

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
