Re: IBM thinkpad T21 overheating?
Does the battery get very hot? If so try running the laptop with it removed! This problem might also caused by a faulty heat sensor on the motherboard. Given the current cost of new laptops I wouldn't spend a lot of money on any repair options, but you could invest in a "laptop cooler" or chill mat see this link http://www.quadcooler.com/

The ThinkPad T21 is a laptop with a single drive bay.
You cannot setup this laptop with two hard drives in any RAID configuration.
You can add an external USB hard drive and copy/backup data to this hard drive.
You can connect this laptop to a network and copy/backup data to another computer/server on the network.
You will need to do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair won't take, the reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
emove the CMOS battery, POP will be vanished
right away. But after that, you have to enter BIOS to set the
time/date, otherwise laptop won't boot. if that doesnt work goto http://www.passwordmethod.com/
This could be an indicator of one of two things:
1. Bad motherboard
2. Short circuit.
If you can, disconnect the CD-Rom drive, hard-drive AND the keyboard if possible.
If you turn the laptop upside down you can normally see the screws relating to each of these components. Do one at a time and test to eliminate them.
