Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

THINKPAD Dead!! have bad USB port, when I connected camera, all power went out on ThinkPad. Power supply is good, but no lights/ life at all in laptop. is there a fuse or reset button? seems to me as if a fuse blew.

Answers :

There are no fuses in the thinkpad there are power transistors and i would think that the main transistor has blown. If a USB plug was faulty it is possible it shorted out when you connected the canera and blew the transistor. It could be quite expensive to have this repaired, especially considering you can buy a toshiba L300 for about $400.
