Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
My T30 2366-91U power switch needs a multiple press to turn on. I thought that it might be dirt underneath the switch but it works with just a single press to turn off the power so dirt is not the case here. Everytime I turn on the power, I need at least 7 to 10 consecutive presses. Once 'ON' it remains till I need to turn it off, without any trouble. I did not change the CMOS battery though.
The c-mos won't cause this. The power button is integrated into the keyboard, and uses the same connector as the keyboard to get power to the system. In most cases, the board with the power button (which is part of the keyboard) is worn out. Occassionally the keyboard connector will work loose or get a little corrosion or dirt and not make a good contact, check and clean the connection. If the connection is good, then I'm afraid you will need to replace the keyboard in order to cure the problem.
