    Hi! When I press the start button, the battery light (green One) goes off for a mili second but nothing runs at all. there is no sound. But i did realise that i have to press the start button multiple times. Last time i got lucky, after pressing the start button continously for 8 minutes... I''ve also tried running withought the batt(Ac Power) but it has the same problem... Is it something very serious?



    Sincerly appreciate your help,

    Ko Lin

I have this same problem with this model. It woill not boot properly with the external power connected. I can boot normally on battery power. When Windows 2000 prof. is fully loaded, I can connect the external power. A dialog box comes up asking if you waqnt to go to the higher power setting. Check "no" and you should be good to go..

I need a little more info. Does it beep or make any sounds, and does it light up at all or is it completely dead, no lights, sound, nothing?

What is the problem when uyou switch on the IBM


You probably need to replace the BIOS battery. This battery is small and on the inside of the laptop connected to the motherboard. It stores the BIOS settings, date and time. If this battery becomes worn out then it will cause your issue. First try and press F1. Navigate to the last tab and select to restore defaults, then save and exit. If the computer boots up fine but the next time you use it the same message appears then you need a new BIOS battery. Alternatively your HDD may be damaged if it cannot find a boot device. Check your HDD is recognised on the boot menu by pressing F12, select it and press enter and your OS should boot. Hope this helps,

My IBM think pad T20 has lock when turning on and i dont have password


How did you set the password?
Did you buy this laptop from someone?
If you did you need to get the password from that person.
There is no backdoor password available and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the passowrd because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
You need the password to boot up the laptop and then into the BIOS configuration to remove the power on password.

Install hard drive for t20


So, what is it you want to do?
The hard drive on a T20 is in a slot on the left side of the unit, and it's cover can be taken off by removing 1 screw on the bottom just under the sound ports.
Hope that helps.
