Rebuilt a Lenovo Thinkpad, now its not taking a charge ? Answered
I've had to put a new power connector on a Thinkpad R51 laptop. The usual major job to remove all the bits to GET to the connector,(30 minutes) then 30 seconds of work to FIT the connector, and re-assemble....but it won't charge :-(
Ah, you say, he forgot to plug the new connector to the motherboard, but no, the PC sees the cable being plugged in (it beeps) and unplugged (it beeps again).....but it won't charge.
It won't work at all, if the battery is unplugged, so what ELSE should I look for ? Any ideas gratefully received !
