A hardware maintenance manual was released March 2004. There is a review from Sept. 30, 2003 so it is 6-7 years old, ancient by computer time lines.

Replace bios battery 161 and 163 error codes


Most computers have a 'keep-alive' coin-cell battery on the motherboard that provides a DC voltage to keep the bios memory contents preserved when the computer is turned off. After a couple of years, the batteries need to be replaced with new ones. Look online for the service manual for your Thinkpad or look up 'Thinkpad 380ED bios battery replacement' on your favorite search engine to see if you want to tackle the process yourself.

Thinkpad R50e restore fabric settings/partition erased


If you need to reset it, you can get a recovery disk from IBM Lenovo which will be much cheaper than getting a new copy of Windows. When you call up IBM, make sure you keep your serial no handy.

My thinkpad does not hold a charge it only work with the power supply hooked up.


Make sure the battery contacts are clean. If it won't hold a charge then you probably need a new battery. Batteries only last a couple of years.

I have a Ibm thinkpad R40 2723 EG7 laptop. I have a problem with the 2 usb ports which works really slow, and always unders usb1 standard and not usb2! Is this an installation problem, bios problem or this...


Hi, providing this Thinkpad you are talking about was built around seven years ago, it'll only have the USB 1.0 which means a slower data transfer rate. Which is normal for this age of laptop

Ibm thinkpad laptop wont start


The BIOS/CMOS backup battery is probably due for replacement; that system has a few years on it and the coin cells are good for maybe 5 years.

If you don't have your original user guide, you can get the maintenance manual here:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4PER6R.html

It will contain battery replacement info.
