Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I was listning to music on my laptop when the computer froze... I turned it off and tried to restart it but now it just freezes on the black screen with the IBM logo in the background. I tried to start in safemode it jsut stays frozen. I was able to push F12 and get into the Temp. boot device but it froze on that screen too. I did get it to start up all the way back to the desk top and it was starting up programs but then it froze again and I am back to square one. I did take the CMOS battery out and that didnt help either. The fan starts up and the computer seems to be on though. Any suggestions?
We can start with the easy stuff first. Move the memory chip to the other slot. Remove the small square plate on bottom of the laptop. You'll need a really small screw driver for this. If you have two chips, remove one and see if the laptop will boot-up.

Well, the fan is either unplugged from it's socket, froze up, or completely clogged with dust, etc and is giving the bios reason to shut down.
Also tho, tell me, does the time and date keep needing to be reset?
Could be a cmos battery. Some of the older thinkpads were like that, although my T30 has never shown this problem.
