T30 wil not boot. ligts up then nothing. remove power to reboot
I have the same problem wiht no fix. i went to replace the monitor cable as the screen back light stopped working. Once i did this I press the power button and it goes through the noral light sequence and when the Z light comes on and the computers stops booting. then when i press the power button to try to boot again nothing happens ( no lights or nothing). I switched the cables back and I have the same problem. It seems somthing else is out of place, but i'm not sure what it could be. To reboot i have to remove the AC power and the battery for 10 seconds and then it will attempt to boot again.

White Screen usually means the screen is bad. Get ready to replace it. If you system seems like it booted up all the way but the screen is white, more than likely the screen is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.
few things to try.
remove battery and just boot off power cable.
remove hdd and see if you can get bios screen
if you have 2 memory chips try removing 1 first, same proble the replace and then do the other
try an external monitor or tv
most laptops require this to be enabled by pressing a function key and an F key.
this should either fix or narrow down the faulty part
Have you tried to substitute a different cable? Many times a cable can go bad, and you cannot tell, because of how they are made. Get a different cable to try as a replacement, and see if that doesn't resolve this issue.
Either something has wiped out your operating system and you need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall it, or your hard drive went Since it worked fine the day before and just did this right away, my guess it that your hard drive went bad. But you can try both options though. Hope this helps.
I dropped my laptop and screen was verry hard to see unless u shined a bright light at it. the inverter just under the lcd screen happened to come unpluged. I dont know if i was just lucky or if this has happened to more people. I hope this helps some one else.
i own a t-30 myself with all the same problems i am reading about not reading ram beeping on startup no screen display but you could here hard drive running before these symptoms started the first symptom i ever noticed was if i picked the unit up with my left hand on the left front corner to move it it would boot down and then would not re boot properly (no screen, beeping) until i would smack the case then it would boot fine note: ram slots are located in the left front corner. I always assumed i had a cold or broken solder joint on the main board the last week the thing started running flakey i noticed i was only reading one of my 256mb ram chips so i powered down switched the two chips to the other ram slots and rebooted i noticed one chip was really warm the other cold the comp. booted up perfect and ran perfect for 2 hrs. same prob. so i bought two new 512mb chips installed the and have had none of the above listed problems ever since
see there is power in monitor and check also that your monitor is getting signal from cpu just remove the data vga data cable from cpu and see is it showing any massage on screen like check signal or any other massage. and check your keybord also by pressing num lock key see the light is on and aoff when you pressing the num lock button . if nothing is happen that mean your monitor is not getting signal from cpu and it is not monitor problem .
