Laptop won't power up

I am having trouble. My IBM Thinkpad won't power up.

One day i was using it, and when i got home, it would no longer power up.

I know the battery still had a charge before i closed it down, and now I can't get it to power up at all.

Please help

If you are just using the battery, the power plug that supplies power to the laptop may be the culprit, if you are using the plug in power supply and there is still no power at all , you might have a power converter problem. check female part of plug on laptop for any looseness either way a tech. is needed to prove conductivity and connections inside laptop

This is something that unfortunately will require a technician to figure out. It could be the motherboard is gone, it could be the power supply is gone, or it could be any number of other things.
You did not specify, but if it is doing absolutely nothing I would be inclined to think it is indeed something major.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hello my question? can i operate my IBM r52 thinkpad with out a battery? because the battery will not charge and the thinkpad will not operate with the power cable?


Hi,
Remove the battery and connect the laptop with the charger and it should operate normally. However, in the absence of battery you won't be able to get backup.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My ibm thinkpad won't turn on


Try powering on laptop what happens do you hear any beeps or see any lights normally if u see lights this is a sign that it is working if not your motherboard could be bad if you see lights and hear constant short beeps this means your memory can be bad, Try powering on laptop without battery and only power supply plugged in.

Is the battery OK and holding a charge? If not then the AC adaptor or it's connector may be faulty and disconnecting power when the laptop is moved.
