Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

IBM ThinkPad R40

\015 I bought a used R40. The battery seemed pretty good and it worked ok for several months. I did not notice the color of the indicator light at the time. It may have been green. \015\012\015\012Now, it is always yellow or orange. I left it plugged in over night, expecting it to fully charge. Howerver when I tried to use it under battery power, it would not start up at all. I had to plug it into the wall to use it. \015\012\015\012What could be the problem?\015\012\015\012Also, where can I find information about all of the indicator lights (for example the battery indicator changing from yellow to green, if this is true) and features of my computer?\015

Answers :

The battery indicator showing a yellow or orange indicates that the battery life is over. You may have to purchase a new battery.

\015\012Regarding the place where you can find information about these is that it is universal that the orange indicator means the battery is faulty.
