Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook ?
Notebook not powering on
\015 There is no response from the notebook. When I press the power on button, there is no response even with the power adaptor connected. The battery light glows but there is no other action after I press the power button. This problems sometimes automatically resolves after several months of not using the laptop! but after powering on and off after a few days the same thing happens. could you please resolve. Thanks,\015
Actually fixed the problem with Mandy's by simply trying a different POWER SOURCE! ( bought her a new computer and tried the new cord on the old computer and it fired right up.....sigh... just my luck, but I found a good home for the IBM.)
