a few days ago, I had to dis- and then reconnect the CMOS battery. After putting my T400s back together, the AC power supply did not work any more (the computer is plugged in and the power cable works fine with other computers, but it won't supply to power to this T400s). Can't charge the battery either!
Did I disconnect/break something in my CMOS reset quest? Are there any straightforward things I could try to get it to work again?

I am afraid I did not. But I was careful to only touch the plastic connector and nothing else. Afterwards the computer booted just fine (battery was still partially charged) and everything seemed to work, except for the AC power.

OK, will do!! Do you mind explaining briefly how that could be connected with the power problem? Thanks

you can try to get a cheap series 3 port replicator and see whether the laptop would work on ac power supply connected to the dock. It should cost around 70 dollars on ebay.
