Mine is Thinkpad T40. 5 months ago, it's gone wrong. I removed battery for long time (couple of hours). When I plugged the battery back, and turned on, the fan run well, the power LED and the battery LED lighted, but nothing more. I had to bring it to IBM, they said it was motherboard problem, need 2 weeks and 100$ to fix. While, my friend's laptop (T40p) went wrong too, but he did nothing but left it on his desk for 2 weeks. When I had may T40 back, it worked, but, at the same time, my friend's T40p worked, too, without fixing a thing.
And 2 days ago, I left my T40 without battery or power adapter, once again, it stopped. Exactly the same as the first time. I don't know why. Battery is good, back-up battery is good, too (2.8V). Also, my motherboard is my old one (as before I brought to IBM distributor).
Can anyone explain this? Should I change the motherboard, or fix it, or do nothing as my friend did?
I took my laptop to a technician. After a day examining it, he said there was no solution for that problem. Meanwhile I bought a new power cable (not the power adaptor, just the cable from the power outlet to the adaptor). I left my laptop at my shelf for about 3 weeks deciding what to do. When I finally decided, I turned it on (with the new cable) and it is working again without any problem.
