Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook

1 Answer

Freezing. I have a Thinkpad A21m, and it will periodically freeze. I had another one which had the same problem, and the only program that I've had on both now is Juno. I this a common problem with the A21m, or is there a compatibility issue with Juno? Thanks.

The freezing generally indicates that a memory chip is going out, or the hard drive is beginning to fail. This could also be a software conflict or glitch, so start by doing a system repair with your operating system or recovery disc. You will not lose any data by doing the repair. Also, go to filehippo.com and download CCleaner, run it on both the regular clean and the registry clean. This will remove any unused dlls or file extensions that may be hanging it up. If it's still freezing after doing this, then remove the memory and try one or the other chip for a while to see if it freezes. If it's the hard drive beginning to fail, eventually it will fail completely, then you'll know it was a hard drive issue. I'm leaning towards a software conflict/glitch or memory chip. Let me know how it turns out.

ThinkPad A21m type 2628


This is usually caused by one of three items.

1. The cdrom drive is failing

2. The hard drive is failing (it may say hdd 0)

3. The interface to those two items is failing

Consult your seller ASAP and check that he would accept a return. If it was bought "as is" then your are out of luck. So sorry for the bad news

My ibm laptop contionusly beeps and says power scource is battery,when i press esc, it boots normally and shuts down in about 15 mins to half an hour


Either:
A. Bad battery
Or
B Bad power supply.

Sounds like the battery isnt charging correctly , the beeping is warning you it is running out of power.

Take the battery out , and boot normally with the ac adapter.

Does it work?

If yes, Get new battery. about 70-90 dollars.

If no. Get new ac adapter. 20-40 dollars.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook


It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
