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.
Do a power drain, this may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im Not really sure how it affects the display of the computer but this method usually fix such problem like that, First, removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter the press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds then connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on, if nothing happens,there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
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
I'm assuming your screen shows nothing at all, even the bios or boot screen as it turns on.
If you can hook it up to an external monitor then your video adapter is working. Try using the vga output on the laptop. If it doesn't show anything use you display select feature. I'm not sure what button it is on your laptop but on mine it is Fn+F8 (look for a button that shows a laptop and/or a rectangle).
If you can see it with an external monitor, you should try to uninstall and reinstall the video adapter. After you reboot the computer hopefully it will work.
However, if it still does not work, you will probably need to reseat the monitor cable. Do this by opening the screen panel. on the back is a flat cable tat plugs in to the LCD. This is usually covered by tape. Carefully remove the tape, unplug the cable and plug the cable back in. Don't forget to replace the tape! I have fixed two computers in the last two weeks by reseating this cable.
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
