Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

1 Answer

My office gave me a Lenovo T61 and comes with a battery with RFU P/N42T5262. When the battery got worn, I requested a replacement battery. The dealer gave me a battery with RFU 42T4644. Is this compatible with my notebook computer T61? Your reply would be most appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: Schematic for Lenovo T61

Idon't know of any source for any of the mother boards. Part of this is due to the extreme complexity. I would be happy to even find parts layout and/or block diagrams for these critters but have yet to find any. The best that I can do for you (or me!) is to point you towards a copy of the maintenance manual. Let me know if that will help you.
Thanks!
Ron

SOURCE: MISSING DRIVER LENOVO T61

Hi there.
Go here for the "chipset" or "intel AMT" drivers, what you could do is download all of them so you have a back up of drivers needed (working on the assumption you are using XP)

Yes, it's highly-likely that all your "data" files on the disk-drive are intact. Any qualified computer-technician can remove the disk-drive, temporarily connect it as a "slave" drive in a computer, and copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s).

T61 thinkpad does not detect battery


Normal 0 If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Lenovo Think Pad T61P dead.


Did you try removing the battery pack and then putting it back in? I had disconnected my AC, closed the lid, put it in my backpack and went to the office. The battery light was on when I left but by the time I got to the office it was DOA. After checking the AC at the office I took out the battery pack and put it back in. Voila.

Lenovo T61 Battery life 10 min? Any advise?


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Reset factory password on t61 lenovo


password for what? bios or windows?
if it's the windows password, press the f8 key before windows starts and choose safe mode, choose administrator for the username and then go to user accounts and remove the password for your account.
if it's the bios password, you have to strip the laptop and pull the bios battery on the system...it looks like a large watch battery but becarefull not to break anything.
