Ok, I recently purchased an old IBM Thinkpad 760el from a garage sale and they claimed it worked. When I brought it home, it booted up just fine and then died promptly. I plugged it in for several hours but nothing seems to help. The battery is dead and it won't charge. Is there anything I can do to fix or verify that this is the problem other than buy a 100 dollar battery for a laptop I bought for 20.
the IBM TP 760 EL was sold until early 1998. Equipped with an LiIon battery (28H8924) as main power supply, a NiCd battery soldered to the mainboard and a Li-cell to save the bios options and the clock.
If the Li-cell is week you have to enter the bios options every time you boot up your TP. If the NiCd battery is flat you'll get problems when using the power save mode. Your TP should work without the main battery. You can pull it out. But be careful this battery often seems sticking on.
Good luck from Germany!
