According to the support website, it could either a memory (DIMM) or motherboard (System board) problem. See beep codes and what them mean here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46018.html

First thing to do would be to remove the memory and put it back in (called 'reseating') to make sure there is a firm connection to the motherboard. Find out how to do this for your particular model here: Click here. If you have two memory modules installed and the remove/reseating action did not stop the beeping, try removing just one and attempt to boot the system.

  • If you get the same beeps again, remove the one you have installed and replace with the one you took out - try booting.
  • If you don't get the same beeping and you can then boot in to windows, then you've identified the bad memory module. Replace it.
If you still get the same beep code, then it sound like it's your motherboard that needs to be replaced.

T22 disk read error


Sounds like the Operating System is corrupt. I would re-format the hard drive and re-install the OS that should solve the problem. If not then the Hard drive needs to be replaced.

How can i fix my IBM ThinkPad T22 2647. it produce 3 simultaniuos beep sounds lcd is black out.


This is a list of ThinkPad Beep codes.
It appears you have a memory or motherboard problem, most likely a RAM problem. Try reseating the RAM modules, if this doesn't work, then remove the RAM and take them to your friendly computer repair shop to get them to test the RAM modules for you. If the RAM is faulty them replace.

My IBM Thinkpad T22's battery doesnt last. can i fix that?


Basically you need a new battery. Recharageable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and they lose their full charge capacity as the get older. The batteries will have less capacity over time ie less available battery time, and when it is worn out, it won't charge at all.

IBM T22 Thinkpad won't boot up - not even in safe mode


either you have a virus or a corrupted dll file.
eitherway, beside create a bootable CD or Floppy disk, and try to fix from there, thats' time a money.
the next best thing, is to reinsall the operating system.
the other option is get a new hard drive and install the operating system on that so you can preserve the data you have on the old one.
