Ibm thinkpad t43 windows xp it has ad-block from


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. Might be a defective hdd aswell, in this case to make sure you can run a DFT test, www.google.com -> Look up for " Test DFT " ( Drive fitness tool from hitachi, will make an hardware diag if hdd failure - error code 0x00 = everything fine, other code = Issue - You can look up for accurate code explanation on hitachi website ) thanks and have a nice day J-

When i switch on the my thinkpad it starts to boot up then the screen goes blank the battery light goes orange and and flashes and it makes a cranking noise.


Is the Battery making the cranking noise? If so the battery is telling you the battery is dying. I have a IBM ThinkPad 380Z and when on the charger it makes a beeeeep noise and goes off and on for almost the entire day and then stops and keeps a solid orange battery light on.
Try booting without battery

IBM ThinkPad 380Z AV Hook up To Tv


From what I have been reading, the video card in the computer itself MUST support TV out. You can't just use a TV like a computer monitor...it won't work. Check the ads on eBay for those adapter cables and they will say: Check to make sure your video card supports TV out. Go back to eBay and search in the same general area for a computer video to TV adapter or converter box. DO NOT get it confused with the converter box for HDTV. They are about $25-$35 and you will still need the cable adapter you already have, plus another set of just the AV cables. Good luck. Please rate this if it was helpful.

IBM ThinkPad 380Z LCD Inverter


Glad to see you found your cable. The inverter would be my best guess, then possibly the back light, but more than likely the inverter.

IBM, lenovo ThinkPad 380Z


There are a ton of these machines out there. If you can't find just the ribbon Ebay, try a whole machine not working.I recently picked one up off Ebay for $28 with shipping just for parts. You can also try a local shop that sales or services used machines. If you can't locate one, you can give me a call, I believe that I have a few at my shop and we'll see if we can get you one. My shop number is 417-626-7727, I'm open tues - sat 10:00am till 6:00pm. I may need you to send the old one, if you have it, in order to make sure we get the right one.

IBM,lenovo ThinkPad R31


Maintenance manuals for both systems are on www.lenovo.com/support, under the publications section. But without looking at it, I would say no, the cables will not work.

No video on Ibm Thinkpad T23


hi
i also have a t23, and i have messed around with the display a lot...
there are several things to consider:
1) your operating system. i would assume you are using windows xp, and that you dont get video even before the OS starts up in the first place, but its just something to consider: i have heard of some video bugs with the t23 under linux
2) you should check to see if the laptop display and the video out problems are related in the first place. to be honest, i dont know why they would or would not be related. the display not work because a) its just plain broken (although in this case there are usually some somewhat obvious cracks) b) the ribbon cable from the display to the motherboard could have ripped (they do so very easily). if the ribbon cable is ripped in its usual place, you MIGHT just not have a backlight. make sure that there is nothing on the screen, not just a normal display extremely dark. if theres definitely no picture, then you have to take the laptop most of the way apart, but you can start with just the screen casing. its fairly easy to figure out how to take apart, but you might want to look it up. behind the screen casing you can see the ribbon cable and whether or not its ripped. oh, but before you do that, try turning the led light on thats built into the top of the screen. its also part of the ribbon cable. you can do this by pressing the fn key and page down or something next to the brightness buttons. if that doesnt work then your ribbon cable is either ripped, or of course it could just be a motherboard problem in which case all of what ive said is fairly useless information. if you want you can also take off the keyboard and top casing from the screws in the bottom and look at where the ribbon cable (and maybe the video out too) meets the motherboard, just in case theres an obvious problem or disconnect. it probably wont be very obvious. however, if you do discover fairly surely that it is the ribbon cable, then you can get them for very cheap. search "ibm thinkpad lcd video cable t23"
hope i could be of some help
