    I cleaned out the fan and surrounding area, but still gives me the error.  The time and date are okay, no resetting needed.

    I changed the cmos battery and still shuts down.



    Still need help?

Hi,

Well, the fan is either unplugged from it's socket, froze up, or completely clogged with dust, etc and is giving the bios reason to shut down.

Also tho, tell me, does the time and date keep needing to be reset?

Could be a cmos battery. Some of the older thinkpads were like that, although my T30 has never shown this problem.

Good luck

I plugged mu T30 KU-2367 in power outlet, cam on


Hi,

I'm sorry but by what you have explained you will need to take this machine to a pc repair store and have the AC/DC adaper on the laptop itself checked out just in case it has burned out. Also you have to have the power supply itself checked just in case feed back has damaged that too.

If you feel like doing this yourself you will need a mulimeter to test the voltage coming from the power supply and the adapter on the laptop motherboard.

Also, if this has just happened then leave the unit to cool down and try again as if the cooling fan has seized then the laptop will automatically shut down when it reaches critical temperature.


Plesae post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck.

It is relatively easy involving a single screw at the bottom and pulling it out. Initially, pls reference this page. Additionally, Lenovo has an instructional movie should you be interested.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

T 30 sound problem


You should check in my computer and see if your audio or sound is showing.
If it is and there are is an ! OR ? then update driver.
If it shows and there are no markings beside it then I would uninstall and restart my computer if it does'nt automatically start the download then go into control panel add and remove try to install from there.
If that does'nt work I HAVE ANOTHER SOLUTION TO TRY.

IBM T30 - power issues


You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.

Key board stops responding when windows loads


your mouse freezes; you should only use system restore as a last resort
any virus/spyware you had in the past will come back
turn the computer off(you may have to shut power off pressing on power button)
when you see ibm logo, tap F8 key repeatedly until your hear beeps or a high pitched noise
use option safe mode; use 'most recent config where my settings worked' option in safe mode(use up and down arrow keys to highlght, then press enter)
If that does not work, try another(earlier) restore pt w system restore or install mouse drivers on a cd on another laptop, then
place in cd rom and try to install it on the problem laptop
if this is no good, you should really reinstall windows, back up impt docs, etc.(delete old partition)
that model has a built in restore function by pressing F11 on startup, it will restore your piece to factory condition(along w spyware that comes along w the builtin ibm utility)
I had the same exact laptop, the fan got noisy, so I replaced it w another that was from a good t30, guess what:
"fan error"
Ibm laptops are too problematic to work on
thats why I use dell
if you need more help, msg me or post on here
