Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
Seems to be a common problem.
My trouble started when I installed too much RAM (2x1G). Most probable needed too much energy and fried the mother board. At least this I was thinking. No boot, nothing, just CPU fan working. But no power for CPU, airflow did not get warmer.
Ordered new mother board. After assembly no change - no boot, just CPU fan. When I lifted my computer holding it from lower left corner it suddenly reacted and booted. Everything seemed to be OK, WinXP was running smoothly (with 1G RAM). But after restart everything repeated and only slight bend of the left corner did the job.
Then I left it to hibernate and it never recovered. Tried everything (cleaned and assembled 3x, tried different power options etc.) Next thing I will try is to clean the main power switch (now it has a bad connection). But it has serious power isuues, most probably some fuses are out.
Once again , bad ram will prevent your computer from booting , make sure you are using a known good ram module.
