My ibm laptop's mother board cannot power on, please help me solve it


The most likely problem is that the onboard power supply has failed, usually a capacitor has burned out. Or it could be a loose DC supply socket (they only need to have one loose pin on the motherboard.)

The computer boots then it goes off sudenly


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

When i start my laptop nothing happens except i hear i beep.I press the power button again and i hear one beep.After about six times an xp page comes on that says windows did not load sucessfully.I go to...


Try starting windows in safe mode by tapping F8 repeatedly right after you press the power button - a black and white screen will appear asking if you want to start in safe mode - the arrow keys select the mode, press enter, let it load fully then use the start menu to shut down and restart normally. Windows is simply telling you it cannot load properly this restores a good configuration again for it to use. Regarding wiggling the power cord - possibly the plugin is either loose or broken inside and the joints that connect it may have to be resoldered, the case has to be taken apart for that. One beep usually means all is well on IBM, three beeps indicate a problem, not necessarily only memory. The bios (F1 or F2 usually) may contain an error log indicating exactly what the problem is and will be indicated by a number code - IBM has a list on their site of what the number codes mean. Occasionally the error code may display on the screen upper corner on start up if you wait for it to show after the beeps.

My tashiba satellite a135-s2356 dosent work anymore


try removing the battery, and unplugging from the wall. now press and hold in the power button for at least 30 sec., reinstall battery and ac adaptor and try to power on. if that doesn't resolve, you may need to have the RAM (memory) checked out, as system memory is usually shared for video

CRC Problem


Chances are since the system CRC1'd it has a very old BIOS revision. From version 1.10 on, the CRC issue has been fixed. So, get the latest BIOS from IBM, T21 BIOS: ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/spsdkz34.exe and flash the BIOS. Reboot the system and verify the updated BIOS. Now power down the system, desolder the known good EEPROM and resolder the CRC1 EEPROM. Boot the machine and hit ESC when the splash screen comes up and watch the post screen. The new BIOS should have recalculated the EEPROM checksum and written the changes to it. You'll know if it worked because the CRC1 error will be gone.
