The problem is that my computer wont run on battery only it has to be connected to my ac adapter. To put it simply battery only = wont turn on, battery + power cord = wont turn on, power cord only = will turn on. So naturally i thought i had a battery problem so I bought two, i repeat 2, genuine looking bateries from amazon and both of them did not work and i ended up returning them because I thought they were not genuine. Now my third battery i bought directly from lenovo's website and it still wont run my thinkpad on battery only. I also replaced my cmos battery but still the same situation. Now my question, is my motherboard bad? Or is there anything else I can do?
thank you for your time reading this
Have you tried installing the battery while it is running on the mains alone? If so, what happens?
Who is the seller on e-bay so I can investigate and avoid if neccessary?

this issue SOUNDS LIKE the same issue i have/had with one of two T61p WUXGA thinkpads..
i don't recall the exact issue but you might need a new system board..
don't go buying one on just my word, wait for a few more opinions..
