Question about IBM ThinkPad X41 Notebook

1 Answer

My brother gave me an IBM (Lenovo) Thinkpad x41. It's completely dead. He's a programmer and believes it is not receiving power (has battery, but power cord does not light up when plugged in). Is this worth fixing, or just scrap it? I don't want to spend a ton of money fixing this. Thanks.

I have a ibm thinkpad x41 i can not access it due to a password on it i need help to get rid of it and put it back to defult


If it's a "Power up" password this can be removed by briefly dosconnecting the cmos battery from the system board. If it is the "Supervisor" password either send to Lenovo for replacement system board and hard drive (not covered under warranty) or send to me and I will return unlocked :-) [email protected] Regards Paul

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


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.
