Was using T60 last night and it was working just fine. I shut the laptop down and then when I came back this morning to use the laptop it would not start up. There were no lights showing either. I plugged the computer in to it's power supply cord and still no luck. Do you know how to get this laptop up and running again? Or what the damage might be?

Re: IBM T60 will not start up.
Could be the ac adapter, battery dead, first check them. if you find nothing there then it could be internal problems. if you know someone who has a charged battery try using it in yours. also try removing the battery and only using the ac adapter only.

Try holding down the power button until the computer force shuts down. If that doesn't work, you may need to pull the battery. Don't worry about damaging files, everything should be fine. When Windows boots up again, you just need to select "Start Windows normally".
First check your num lock key on key bord if it is on off when you press num lick key then your dispaly is working fine means you need to change screen resolution. For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.then go to display property and change screen resolution to 1024*768 or 800 *600. Also when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or 'del" key to enter in bios then load optimal defaults also check your harddisk is detected .Disable your satat option in bios .then save settings then check. I f you not able to enter in bios then Refix your ram.If still face problem you need to reset bios . For that you have to open laptop cover in back then pull cmos cell from mother bord for 5 minutes then refix it then check.
The problem is sort of solved. I phoned the IBM Support centre; they said that the mother board was either broken or faulty. Fortunately the laptop is still under waranty and so an engineer will come and fix it. I must say the IBM suport centre was very efficient and quick.
There was no mention from them though that it was the bios update that may have caused the problem.
it seems that u have installed a faulty driver that was not for your notebook
what u can do is when u enter the post in your notebook than keep pressinf the f8 key and hope u come in the safemode when u there than make a system restore like a day or 2 back and than it will be fine , if that is not possible than try to press the f11 key for complete system restore if u have maked a system backup on dvd
if thats not possible than the only thing u can do is bring it back for a rma at ibm
