Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an T43 notebook, and I left it (unplugged) for about a week and a half, when I came back to it it was dead. So I plugged it back in, still nothing. I let it charge for awhile until the charge light was green, and it still won't power on. The power switch might as well not be there because it does nothing when you push it

Try taking the battery out, and putting it back in, hold the start button till it comes on. If not, it's possible it's just un-chargeable. And you'll have to goto ibm.com to look for a replacement battery. Let me know if this helps

Is your date and time correct? You may need a new CMOS/RTC battery? Does the Laptop loose time/date/year, when you plug back in, after being unplugged without battery installed?

Samsung notebook N150 Plus has gone completely dead


Try another AC outlet, try another cord/charger of the EXACT same power spec. Has the AC jack in the computer been damaged by pulling on the cord? Power surge? With a multimeter, verify DC volts at ac cord plug. Is the Laptop usually left plugged it when not in use? Do you shut it down and unplug when not in use?

Ibm thinkpad t43 wont boot


Remove the battery, and unplug it from the wall. Leave it for 30 seconds and then try turning it on with just the power plugged in. So without the battery. Best of luck, Ravi Shanghavi, Ottawa

IBM t43 fn f5 does not toggle wireless on. Reinstalled windows last week and wireless adapter is not recognized. I loaded proper drivers, but the adapter is not even seen by the operating system.


There are 2 wireless cards for this model. Be sure you have the correct one. Here is a link to download both of them: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58597.html#wireless

Ibm thinkpad t43 backlight inverter issue


Did you say the the video output flickers on and off when you connect an external monitor to the video output. If the inverter is faulty this would not affect the video output and the external monitor would not flicker but if the external monitor flickers it would point to a video card problem.

Just went Dead!!


I'm just a guest, but my Zen has done that before. I actually had to leave it plugged to my computer for awhile (I'd like to say well over a week or two), and when I unplugged it and tried turning it on again, it turned on, but the battery was nearly dead. This has happened more than once to me, and it simply began working again after I left it sitting there for a long time. It seems that, when it blanks out like this, something is going wrong with the battery. Mine always seems dead when it finally works again.
I know that's not much help, but just leaving it there worked for me. Good luck.
