Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?
Failed on restart, had all lights, now no lights and won't do anything!
\015 I uninstalled a program, hit restart and it never started back up. I had the battery in but no AC power at that time. I plugged in the AC and still nothing. I removed the battery, attempted to clean the contacts a bit and put battery back in and plugged in AC. It started to boot, got all the way to my background screen and started to display icons, went dead. I repeated the same process, the battery light flickered for a couple seconds, turned orange/red and then all the lights went out. AC doesn't do anything with or without the battery in. I can remove the battery, replace it, plug in the AC adapter and push the power button and the battery light will flicker once and then nothing, no lights at all! HELP!!!\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your input!\015\012\015\012Tim\015
Sounds like your ac plug to the laptop might be loose you can try ans see if you can resolder it back. the other problem is your ac cord might be broken wiggle it around see if the light flickers.
