Hi, Based on your post/description that it was not the laptop that was dropped and that all the connections are snugly fitted to where they should be, the dropping of the moused caused the laptop to be dead, then it is likely that the +5VDC of the mouse cable has shorted to the ground wire. The short is reflected towards inside the motherboard of your laptop. This +5VDC is common to all the USB ports, PS2 ports, and many other parts of the laptop. The short would open up a fuse somewhere inside. I can only surmise that the power supply is involved. You may need to check that the powersupply/AC adaptor (if present) is giving juice to your laptop with the use of a VOM, since as I understand it, simply plugging in your laptop to the mains would lit an indicator that ACpower is available. Normally a surface mounted fuse is on the motherboard right after the jack where the AC adaptor plug comes in and right before a reverse protection diode. If you are uncomfortable opening your unit and would not be in a position to do component level repair, you are probably better off seeking the services of a qualified service professional. Hope this give you and idea. Good luck and kind regards.

ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC: reinstalled the x41 using xp.. cant get the video...

Here's the link where you can download the driver for XP. Make sure you select the correct family. X41 has two types of unit. Tablet and regular laptop. Make sure also to choose the correct type and model. If you are not aware of this, it is actually at the white sticker at bottom of your laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet security chip. lost bios boot password

I have had to retrieve the BIOS password from one of these before. It is not an easy thing to get to. You have to first
  • Build a special 9-pin Serial cable using parts you can find at Radio Shack
  • Dismantle the laptop
  • find the correct BIOS chip,
  • Solder a couple wires to the correct pins of the BIOS chip (without getting solder on the other pins, or damaging something)
  • Hook it up to another computer via serial port
  • Do a dump of the information stored on the BIOS chip
  • Use a hex-reader to decipher the information and display the password within.
Here is a link to a site that shows you in detail how to accomplish this. It does work, and I've successfully used the linked method to unlock a X41 of my own.
