Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook ?

T21 will not run off battery

\015 The original battery was not holding a charge, but the laptop would work off the power adapter. I purchased a replacement battery and it worked for a a day and then I noticed that it would not hold a charge. The battery appears in the control pannel, but it just reads as 0%. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Hi,
\015\012Either you got another bad battery, or the power bar in the laptop isn't distributing power correctly.
\015\012That's about the only options.
\015\012If you can, check the pins for current where the battery plugs in, to see if it's getting juice.
\015\012Good luck
