IBM – ibm thinkpads sort 2373 and 1830 – one boots, one does not
I simply bought 2 batteries for my previous 2 IBM LT’s. per the title, these are the categories. the 2373 does not boot, although the batt is in and it’s plugged into the wall. 1830 does. nevertheless, I get the display on the 1830 you see within the picture. anybody ever seen this? these 2 LTs have been useless for actually 10 years or extra. I am simply getting them again to life with the aim of giving them away. I will put large quantities of free software program on each if I can determine what’s flawed. any perception from you guys? they’ve by no means been hacked, and should have no malware on them wherever. maybe the display I see within the picture is a results of them not being turned on in additional than a decade? the picture reveals what I see after typing on the keyboard and pushing enter. initially what reveals up is simply the padlock.
