Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook

1 Answer

Upon connecting my ThinkPad A21m to the internet and the launching of the browser, the laptop goes into a sleep like state. The screen is black and no words or images can be seen. Moving the mouse does nothing and does not give the control of my computer back to me. The state is marked by a "powering down" type noise and I have to either remove the battery or remove the charger to restart. Upon restarting, I am greeted with an error message instructing me to update the date and time of my machine. This happened about ten times in a row.

The BIOS battery is flat. This battery keeps the Date and time and other settings for the laptop to function correctly. Replace the BIOS battery and then go to the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time.
If you have further problems, please leave me a comment and give me details of the error messages.

Screen is blank or black


it maybe sounds a little like a problem in explorer.

try to start you computer up, press F8 within the windows loader appears. then select :start up the same way as last time it worked.

now it should work. if not then format the pc.
if you have a lot of important stuff on it you can download the ubuntu livecd and use it the get all of your stuff out of the disk.

hope that works.
