Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop starts to boot up on A/, then beeps four times and dies.

Well, it doesn't exactly die, it just doesn't boot up, but the fan stays on. This is an intermittent problem. Could this be related to an old battery?

Your clutch plates have become stuck together.The clutch needs to be pulled apart,clutch plates cleaned,and put it all back together in EXACTLY(EXACTLY) the same order as it came apart.There is plenty of people that know how to do clutches.Hope this helps

"Fan error" error message


Have you had ur laptop for a while? If so it could be dust build-up, but when ever I came across a fan error it was usually due to the fan dieing out. Can you hear the fan at any point or is there no sound at all. If the fan is making no sound then you wont be getting much out of your laptop. Ive done more repairs for desktop fans and such, but laptop one might be a little more tricky to remove. Best thing to do if your not handy with this area is bring it to a computer repair shop. If the computer is new enough and still under warranty you should notify the warranty company of your problem.

Unresponsive, lamp dies upon start


if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel is shot and needs replacing. if you do, one of the fans might not be working and the heat shuts it off so as not to cause damage.

Fan Died on my Gateway MT-6707


fans can die without any reason that's possible and because of that your laptop is shutting down due to overheating because the processor isn't being cooled so you may need a new fan (but test the pin if there is any voltage there). it could be the motherboard not giving any power to it.

you may also have a problem with the DC socket not charging your laptop thats easy to test, plug the charger into the laptop with the battery and without switching it see if there is an amber light that shows the ac is fine.

P4vmm2 doesnt boot,Y?


Hi yansky, When you turn the computer on do you see or hear any of the following: -Does the power LED turn on and if so for how long? -When you turn you power on listen closely for any sounds like hard drives or fans starting up. -Does anything show on your monitor, if yes what exactly? -When turned on do you hear any beeping sounds from the computer? If you do listen for the pattern of long and short beeps and let us know what they are. If you see absolutely nothing you should try testing the socket the computer is plugged into. Fuses blow, power strips die cords develop shorts so unplug the computer and plug in a lamp to verify you?re getting power. If that doesn?t turn up anything let us know the answers to the questions above plus any other observations and we?ll try to help.
