Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
I am not able to start the laptop. When I switch it on, the lights come on and in a second two lights - battery indicator and the one next to it - stay on...others go off. The laptop does not get booted. Nothing comes on screen. Have checked the Power Cable, battery. both are fine. What should I do? To me it appears it fails after doing keyboard test...
If the laptop is not even getting to boot the hard drive, then their may be a problem some where on the motherboard and it may need to be replaced. Before replacing the motherboard, there are a few things you can try. 1) If you have extra memory, try swapping in new memory and see if the laptop boots then. 2) Try disconnecting all peripherals and add-ons and see if the laptop boots then.
