Question about IBM ThinkPad R52 Notebook

1 Answer

IBM R52 Model 1860, CPU: Intel Pentium M 1.86 GHz, OS: Windows XP SP3, Memory size: 1.5 GBytes Problem description. 1. With battery in: a. At times the laptop turns itself off (does not seem to be an overheating problem, it has been tested with heat imaging instrument); root of problem is unknown b. Once it is turned off, it can not be again turned on unless the battery is removed AND the AC adapter is disconnected; then re-insert the battery OR reconnect the AC adapter (either or both) c. The laptop now can be turned on 2. With battery out: a. At times the laptop turns itself off (does not seem to be an overheating problem, it has been tested with heat imaging instrument); root of problem is unknown b. Once it is turned off the laptop can not be turned on again c. The AC adapter now has to be disconnected d. The AC adapted has to be reconnected e. The laptop can be turned on 3. Conclusion: it seems that when the laptop turns itself off (reason unknown) all power (both battery and AC adapter) has to be removed; then one or both types of power need to be reconnected; then the laptop can be turned on. The removal and reapplication of power seems to reset something and as a result the laptop again can be turned on.

    The suggestion (remove all power sources and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds)seemed to be helpful but only solved half of the problem. Now I do not have to remove all power sources when the PC turns itself off. I can restart the PC normally. However, the PC still turns itself off and I feel that this is and was originally a separate problem from the following scenario:

    remove power-->reconnect power-->start PC

    As I said, the PC still turns itself off as before but I do not think this is caused by overheating (see my earlier post).

Install windows xp drive cd


Probably, if you cannot instal your OS and your disc is not damaged, you have hard drive errors stopping installation of the OS. I would replace the hard drive. It may have memory issues so I would also google the error code for more information.

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc
