I have come into possession of a thinkpad t40 that was stuck away in a storage area of my nephews apartment. it seems to have been there longer than any of the roommates so no one knows anythin about it. Since I have the proper power supply for one of my thinkpads i hooked it up. no response at all. the power light does not even come on when ac is connected. I plan on fooling around with this (since it was free) and wonder if anyone has suggestions as to the forst things to look for. I am going to use an adapter and hook the HD up as a slave on one of my desktops to see if it works.
