Question about IBM ThinkCentre A51 PC Desktop
The computer switches on, but won't boot. The processor fan can be heard running fast and it will stay in this state for hours.
Simple dear, I think that you can see the power led and hdd led but it wont boot. Right. So switch the system and than open the cabinet and than remove the RAM , CLEAR THE DUST ON THE SLOT AND RAM. THAN REPLUG IT IN THE SAME WAY. PLEASE DO NOT INSERT IT FORCEFULLY BECAUSE IT WILL GO EASILY IF YOU ARE INSERTING IT IN RIGHT WAY. SO CHECK THE POSITON OF THE NOTCH ON BOTH THE RAM AND SLOT OK
AND THAN START THE SYSTEM. THIS MIGHT DEFINATELY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Check to make sure the Heatsync is fast to the motherboard.
I found one of the 2 sides was grossley loose. No problems after that was done ... also put new heat sync compound on . ( you can find that at your local Radio Shack )
