Ibm thinkpad laptop


first, remove any external device as well as the ac adapter and the battery. while the ac adapter and battery is out, press and hold the power button for about 15seconds. then reconnect any power source and turn on the system. if it still doesnt turn on, remove memory, expansion cards, hard drive and optical drive then turn on the system. if it's still not turning on, the motherboard is faulty. but if it do turned on, reconnect the removed components one by one so you will determine which component is causing the issue. hope it'll help. good day. =)

This is a shot in the dark, but I had a similar problem with an IBM. Turn out the Laptop Cover Sensor was stuck in its pushed down position ( The system though the lid was closed, when it was not... ), which sent the system to sleep mode before it could Initialise or get to the CMOS screen.

MY IBM T43 fails to boot


Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop still shuts down. If it doesn't then your hard drive might be the issue. You can also try reseating your memory.
