Thanks again.

So "Universal Restore" can put old programs on a new computer?

I have Acronis 2018 and I see Universal Restore. I guess I'll have to investigate that.

Is there a good tutorial online that anyone knows of?

New computer is coming tomorrow. When this computer is not as important as it is now, I'm going to investigate ways to fix it and use it for other projects.

Thanks,
Notes

I do not know but a search on YouTube would probably be a great start so you could see the process.

Bob -

Check this out: https://kb.acronis.com/ati2020/aur

And this: https://www.acronis.com/en-us/technology/universal-restore/

And here's the user's guide: https://dl.acronis.com/u/pdf/AcronisUniversalRestore_userguide_en-US.pdf

Hope this helps. I'm probably going to do the same with my laptop once it arrives (first take an image of the new one, then an image of the old one (if it lets me, since it locks up on me, but I do have a fairly recent image available to get me 90% there in short order). Then try Universal Restore; the main thing, of course it ensuring the the Windows License stays intact, but I'm sure that's covered somewhere.

Yeah, quite likely. IIRC all the Thinkpads I've owned had the power jack separate from the motherboard, so it could be replaced fairly easily if that's the case with this one. Norton never mentioned which model of Thinkpad he has, so I don't know if that's the case with his, but I think every Thinkpad has a Hardware Maintenance Manual which is full instructions on how to replace just about anything. Could be worth looking up.

L580 model.

I'm timid about taking it apart myself, and I would hope the computer tech I took it to would have eliminated the jack.

It does charge the battery, but the computer doesn't know it's plugged in. Would that be a symptom of a bad jack?

Yes, that could be a symptom of a bad jack. There are multiple connections in the jack, generally at least one for "sense" which senses what type of charger is plugged in, and if this connection is broken then it'll not detect the charger.

Of course, it could still be the motherboard. You wouldn't know until you tried swapping the jack, and the tech wouldn't know unless he did that or was familiar with Thinkpads.

The Hardware Maintenance Manual is linked below. It basically tells you how to take apart the machine. Thinkpads are generally easy to work on, but if you're not comfortable with it then you don't have to try.
