Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkPad T60
Hey I recently tried to connect my Mother's Lenovo T60 thinkpad to my mac book 13 using a usb 2.0 to fire wire 400 to transfer files. My Mothers Lenovo shut off almost instantly, However It did smell like it was burning before it shut off. I thought maybe the battery died, but As I tried to turn it back on There was no response. So I Removed the batter then the AC, Held down the power button for 10 secs, And plugged in the AC . Pressed power and it came back on And Now it stays at the thinkpad logo. I Also Notice that it shuts off in 6 mins and gets hot.
A burning smell is a good indication that some component burnt up. Could be a fan and that would cause it to shut down. If it's hung on the logo I would start by removing the memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if it boots past the logo. If it does then power down and add one item back in and test again until you find the bad part. Can you hear the fan spinning when you power it on?

SOURCE: IBM Thinkpad 600 not powering on
It sounds like your power supply may be burned...Do you know if the battery works? if not, you can try buying a new battery to see if it will charge. if it does not, probably your power supply might need to be replaced. Which is tranlates to, get a new laptop.
I hope this helps

2 short beeps actually refer to RAM. If you are comfortable re-seating the RAM to it's place, then do it. If you still have the same issue, then it's the motherboard.
A click on YES will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for choosing FixYa!

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.
