Question about IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook
I have downloaded the ibm bios updates through the t60 Thinkvantage button. They downloaded, and looked like they installed. The machine said that it would need to restart and to make sure that the power and battery were not disconnected.
The machine shut down, but will now not start up again.
Can anyone help.
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.
I'll update when the laptop is working.

Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.
Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.
Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.
