Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook ?

I have an IBM ThinkPad T21 Laptop that won't turn on. I've read the listed questions and answers, but they are of no help. I've purchased 2 new batteries and fully charged them, along with using the charger. No matter what I try, all I get is a green battery light near the hinge area, which goes out when I press the on button. There is also a display next to the power button which has a + sign over a battery display that is on for a split second, and then off. I've tried every variation of sendi

Hi there,\012

The problem does not lie with the charger or the battery as you have said... Its needs to be checked as its a BIOS problem or there is some short happening on the main board of your laptop that is not allowing it to switch on and the lights that you are getting.

Good Luck!!

Thanks 
Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Your laptop is probably having some mainboard problems. Are you used to using your laptop on top of your bed? This will make your laptop overheat thus causing this kinds of problem. If you really want your laptop to work, you will need to open it up and check the parts. The easiest thing that you can try is to change the memory modules. You can get them out by opening the bottom memory covers. Try to take the memory out and put it back in. See if that helps. If the problem is not with the memory then its probably with the mainboard. You'll need professional help if thats the case. You don't want to be spending more if you try to fix the problem yourself then ending up messing something up.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

The notebook will not boot up. When the button is pressed, it lights up for about 10 seconds and then goes off. There is a faint hum which sounds like the fan starting up but that also stops when the light goes off. The screen stays blank. The notebook is plugged in to the mains and the green battery light is on showing that the battery is fully charged. At a guess it seems like the BIOS is not kicking in.
