Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook

Laptop ibm t43 does't turn on if it's not plugged in

When it's plugged in everything works fine, but when it's only on battery, nothing happens during turning on - the control lights shine for a sec, it starts to buzz for a sec and that's all. But if I disconnect it after turning on - it works normally. Could somebody help??

This generally indicates that you have a short in the battery, or that one of the fail safes in the battery has kicked in. A new battery will correct the issue.

Ibm thinkpad t43 wont boot


Remove the battery, and unplug it from the wall. Leave it for 30 seconds and then try turning it on with just the power plugged in. So without the battery. Best of luck, Ravi Shanghavi, Ottawa

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-

Ibm thinkpad t43 backlight inverter issue


Did you say the the video output flickers on and off when you connect an external monitor to the video output. If the inverter is faulty this would not affect the video output and the external monitor would not flicker but if the external monitor flickers it would point to a video card problem.

Thinkpad T43 wont get any AC power


I've run into this many times with IBM machines. The power management chip on the motherboard has failed. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.

Backlight problem


if this is a new laptop, then I am guessing you are using it on battery, and you may have some power save setting turned on that is dimming the screen...

Take a look at your power settings under control panel...
