    T-30 will not start up on power cable or battery. The fan comes on but no hard drive activity. Just dark screen! I have removed the back of the thinkpad and unpluged and pluged the cpu. No help. Thats an old aircraft fix. I have cycled power button several times, no help. It was running perfectly then just failed to start up.

IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

Lenovo thinkpad plugged in not charging is there a problem


laptop plugged in not charging:

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

2. Make sure the IBM ThinkPad X40 power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.

3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.

4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.

5. The power button could be bad

6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

IBM thinkpad will not turn on ...had been used for 2 hous earlier..could heat have been the problem


Could have been a power surge that affected it by try a few things to be sure:

unhook the battery and only have the ac adapter hooked up. If you have a green light on the ac adapter then you know your getting power from that.

Try turning on the laptop and if you still get nothing then the motherboard is definitely bad.

I keep losing my connection - IBM Thinkpad t42


Are you using IBM SW or Windows to manage the wireless? Occassionally, the IBM SW has issues with certain model routers and encyrption types.

You can also try unchecking the "Allow Computer to turn this device off to save power" in the adapter properties and

Adjusting the power on the wireless device to the max. By default IBM sets it in the middle to conserve power.

Ibm thinkpad no power with ac power adapter but works with battery


If prior to this it works intermittently with the AC adapter, it means the connection from the adapter power unit to the motherboard was lost and this is a typical problem with the Thinkpad. It needs a re-soldering job and not something that one can do without a proper repair manual on how to open the laptop. Try googling your problem and find out if someone has the same experience and managed to resolder by him/herself.

IBM Thinkpad laptop wont start up


hi dear

Hi RD, Ouch! Have you tried taking the battery out to see if it will run on AC power when the battery is not installed? Sometimes a bad battery can kill the system.

Do you have a meter that you can measure the output of the AC adapter with to see if it is correct? If not, any chance you could swap adapters with someone for a while to see if theirs works on your computer and vice versa? A local shop may also be able to test your adapter to see if it's working.

oke

regards, cropp
