X41 Tablet PC the battery shows good but computer will not work

I have a IBM X41 Tablet PC. When on the power suppy the computer works good. When I unplug the power supply the computer shuts down. The battery monitor says the battery is good, the battery monitor says the "battery is in good condition" the remaining capacity: 35.42Wh, full charge 36.07Wh, Voltage 16.59, tem 29C, cycle count 212, sanyo, manufactured 2006-05-18, serial number 27, Bar-coding number 1ZA6P65J00R, FRU part number IBM-92P-1085. I removed the battery and cleaned the terminals. What could be wrong?

Some times a battery can pickup a dead short, and even though it shows a charge it will not work. The other possibilty is the power management chip on the mother board. This chip allows the computer to charge the battery and switch from battery to AC. (Right now I have a Thinkpad that will only run on battery, bad PM chip) Try replacing the battery first, if that doesn't work, then unfortunately the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Olibook Tn121: The Return of Olivetti

Olivetti try to reassert itself in the market for computing devices. And intends to do so by developing a series of tablet PCs and notebooks(Toshiba Satellite A200 battery) suitable for both leisure use that office.
After the heavy economic crash happened in the '90s the company, defined as "pioneering" in relation to the market of computers and typewriters in the 70 over the last twenty years has concentrated its efforts on IT technology, the development of printers increasingly advanced and retail business solution, putting aside the hardware development by which in the past had been the pride of Italian industry in the world.
olibook.jpg Now he decided to return to the market, developing several devices with multiple features, grouping them under the eloquent name Olibook. To let you test the intention with which the Italian company intends to recover its place in the market information we present the Olibook Tn121: Italian single hybrid between a notebook(IBM Thinkpad X41 Battery) and a tablet PC. Still do not know the price of the last device Olivetti born at home, but rumors suggest that they come on the market with a very competitive price.
A very interesting device, when viewed from the standpoint of entertainment venues and use. Suffice to say that this tablet PC has supplied on a 12.1-inch TFT touch screen connected among other things, a 1.3 megapixel webcam and a CD / DVD DL. For an Intel Core Duo processor based on Intel Centrino are a 4 GB RAM and a 160 GB hard drive, a fingerprint reader and a Wi-Fi Intel Pro / Wireless 802.11b / g.
A 4-cell battery as HP 530 battery powers the device giving the same 2.3 hours of battery life, perhaps the only flaw of a tablet PC with interesting performances.

My computer will not boot windows xp os

Do you mean it won't pick the disc? If so, try F10 it should also give you a boot menu if you don't see press any key to boot from cd... The other option is boot into BIOS and change your boot order. CD-ROM/DVD should be the 1st option.8_28_2012_7_14_07_am.jpg
