Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T400 - Intel Centrino 2 Core 2 Duo T9400 2.53GHz Notebook Laptops (276712U)

1 Answer

My Thinkpad does not seem to be powering on even after charging it all night. I have removed the battery unplugged it but still the screen is blank. The 2 houses that usually stay lit up after I turn on the power are on for only a couple of seconds and then the lights go out and the screen is still black.

My laptop is not working. When I press power button, only blank screen appears. But the processors' fan is functioning


Hi. I would suggest to power drain or power cycling your laptop, by removing the battery and unpluging the ac adapter and press and hold the power button for 20 sec while the battery and ac is out then plug it all back then turn on your computer. If this dosnt work try reseating the RAMS or memory of your laptop. If does Troubleshooting step doesnt fix your issue then maybe this one is already a LCD hardware issue. Also try calling there tech support hotline at 800-426-7378 if your laptop still under warranty and they would replace the LCD without any charge. Hope this Helps.

Ibm t61 turns on but all I get is a blank black screen.


Hi,
This sounds rather bad. You're not even getting a "thinkpad" screen?
Try unplugging the power and removing the battery for a minute and attempt to power up again.
If it's still not starting, try removing the memory modules (if there are two, remove one and try powering up, then try to remove the other one). Although I seem to remember that newer thinkpads will still show thinkpad logo and attempt to POST even with bad memory (then throw an error), it's always worth a try.
If the above don't make any difference then I'm afraid most probably your motherboard has failed. In theory you could also try swapping the cpu-I've seen a cpu go bad ONCE in my several years of tinkering with laptops.
T61 is a current model-wouldn't it still be under warranty from lenovo? Might be worth checking the serial on their website. Otherwise it's time to search for T61 donor laptops on ebay - ordering a new motherboard from lenovo parts suppliers will most probably be far too expensive.
Good luck, hope you get it working again!

Computer dies FAST when unplugged even though power may register 100% befor unplugging also laptop does not seem to recognize battery properly . battery power goes from 100% to 35% overnight if unplug


You have a dead battery or the charging circuit is faulty. If you have had the battery since you purchased the laptop, then it is worn out and needs to be replaced.

To turn it off, you will need to unplug it and take the battery out. This could be a battery problem, try starting the machine without the battery, AC only. If this doesn't work. Then I'm afraid the problem is most likely with the motherboard. Take it in for a professional diagnostic. They will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and whether it's a replaceable component.
