Dead thinkpad by ibm

\015 Computer sat for 6 months. battery is dead, I charged it all night. light went from yellow to greenbut it won't start up. push and hold start button and nothing, no beep no hd starting, absolutely nothing. Thought maybe a reset button butI'm told no reset button on a thinkpad. would A DEAD bios battery stop it from trying to start up?\015

Answers :

Start your laptop:
\015\012Remove the power battery
\015\012Plug IN power adapter
\015\012Turn ON laptop
\015\012It should startup
\015\012Allow Windows to load & "settle"
\015\012Insert battery (while laptop is ON & Windows running
\015\012Allow to charge (again) for a few hours.
The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.
