Yeah it's a pretty common problem with certain ThinkPads.

Here's a good place to start if you wanna know how to fix yours.

I'd recommend signing up for the forums and posting your question there since you'll get a lot of specific support from fellow ThinkPad users ;)

Hope this info helps!

What should i do for 0190 critical low battery erroe in ibm r52 laptop


Normal 0 If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

IBM Thinkpad A31 2652 wont switch on


This is bad news, the smell you have noticed from the ThinkPad is most likely caused by an electrical short in the power circuit and the cost of repair would not be a cost effective solution, a replacement motherboard may not be available because of the age of this model ThinkPad.

You maybe able to retrieve your data from the hard drive by removing the hard drive and connect to an USB hard drive adapter then connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this drive as an external USB hard drive and you can copy the data off this hard drive.

Ibm a31 0190 erroe


Error 0190 means you need to charge your battery. Either your battery is not charging properlty or your charger is not working anymore. If the computer works while plugged in and gives no error then it would be the battery that needs replacing. If the battery is a few years old then you may want to order a replacement. The Thinkpad A31 uses the ThinkPad Ultrabay 2000 Li-Ion Battery. You can purchase a replacement battery from this website:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=38&Code=02K6646&current-category-id=4364BD0F20B94413B5AD6E684D2848E9

If the laptop doesn't work while plugged in and you dont get any lights on the battery or power indicator on the front of the laptop then you may need a replacement. Depending on which region you are in you will need a different A/C adapter. You can find a list of different A/C adapters here.The A31 uses the 72 watt power adapters on this page:

I hope this helps.

This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.
