Question about IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook
I was working on my laptop when it suddenly went blank - am unable to reset it using the power button. It is totally unresponsive.
Perhaps the motherboard is damaged? If the motherboard is damaged does that mean that all the data cannot be recovered?
Check your AC adaptor and make sure the're securely connected to each end - to the power outlet, strip or to the laptop jack. If its on a power strip try power cycling the strip by turning off and on. Try using another known good power outlet or if not try pluging in another known good device to see if it powers up. Take out battery and just plug in the ac power
If you plug it in to another good outlet and still you dont see any power lights ( green light, blue lights, etc. ), fan or hd boot

1) Try holding down the power button for 5 secs. Let go and try to turn it on again. This is a signal that bypasses the OS and tells the motheboard to power down. This helps if the computer is actually still running but with no display.
2) If that does not work, unplug the computer, remove the battery and leave it at for 1 min. Replace the battery, plug it in and try to turn it on again. Corrupt data in RAM can cause problems like yours, this clears out the RAM so you start fresh.
If the above did not help it might be your motherboard. A bad motherboard does not usually damage your data. You can remove the hard drive and put it in a portable hard drive enclosure (about $30), the enclose plugs into a USB slot in a working computer and shows up as another hard drive.
Check to make sure your power is ok, I ran into a situation where the power bar was accidentally turned off and then the battery ran down.
