Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook

1 Answer

T40 starts bootup, beeps five times and stops.

The screen remains black, but the fan stays on. The is on A/C power. Could this be related to an old battery (which it is)? Should I try replacing the battery?

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away

What is it doing exactly, any lights, beep, does it show the initial IBM screen, what? What did it do just before this started, freeze, crash, noise?
