Thinkpad Tablet X41 dies randomly

2008-06-11, 17:34 PM
I've had  a X41 Tablet for about 2.5 years now.  Just recently in the past month it will randomly die on me, meaning it will lose all power (No shutdown screen, nothing).  If I try to turn it back on, nothing will happen.  If I plug in the AC adapter, still no power.  The only way I can get it to start back up is if I remove the battery, then place it back in forcefully or wiggle the battery around while it is back in the slot.  If it does restart, the battery is still charged like nothing had happened.  So  it isn't the battery losing it's charge.  I even tried putting another battery in from one of the X41 tablets in our office after the computer had died and it wouldn't start.  My thoughts are it has something to with the connection on the board.  Any other thoughts or ways to fix this?
 
Thanks,
John

Actually, I finally took it to a warranty authorized dealer and they had to replace the system board (at least that is what he told me).  It works now.

I would suggested having it inspected by lenovo themselves. Do you have a 3-year warranty?

Actually I just checked and I am still under warranty, so I'll try and find a local dealer to look at it.
Thanks

Its the battery, there is a microchip in the battery that may lock AC the power off when the battery dies. Buy a new battery.
