Help! I took my IBM T21 Thinkpad apart to replace the display ribbon cable and afterwards noticed the I was on battery power even though I was plugged into AC power. It also seems the battery wasn't being charged. The adapter checks at 18V, and everything was working fine before I took the unit apart.
I took the battery out and restarted while only on the adapter, and got a Error 0190: Critical low battery error. I'm thinking I jostled some connection, or reassembled some spring clip wrong and created a short someplace.
Can anyone out ther help me???

:tazz:

Well?


What else can you do but take it back apart and find what you messed up ;)


Welcome to the world of "[bleep] I screwed something up when I took it apart"


"Why do I have all these extra screws?" :tazz:

Well...
Of course I tried to go back in and see if I screwed something up. Needless to say, I couldn't find anything obvious so I thought I'd try fishing for some expert advise. Is there something that would most likely cause this? Is there a most probable cause? Where would be the first place to look?

Still :tazz:

Try and follow the power connections to the battery see if you can spot a break, use a multimeter to test connections.
