Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

T-30 won't boot

The computer won't boot.  It makes a series of beeps when turned on.  The sleep/hibernation icon is green but turning the computer off does not solve the problem.  Any ideas?

Ten bucks says it's the memory. Do this: make sure there's only one piece of memory in the machine, and make sure it's in the slot closest to the back of the machine. At the same time you push the button to turn it on, be pressing the memory slot/memory as if you wanted it to be closer to the motherboard.

In other words, these are notorious for having bad slots (I use a T30) but if you only use the rear slot (most times it's the rear one, sometimes the front slot works, rarely both) and if you apply pressure to it so it makes good contact with the motherboard, it'll work for you.

The factory "quick fix" is to put foam tape on the cover in such a way ass to apply said pressure to the memory slots, thus keeping them connected without having to use your hand, or other appendage

Of course, knowing the beep codes is exactly the proper protocol for diagnosing the problem, and my colleague is correct in requesting it.

Good luck

How to get out of sleep mode?


You turned the laptop on and off and it still is asleep?

When you turned it off did the power go completely off? If not remove the power cord to make it go off.

Try booting up into safe mode and see if it goes to sleep.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity so you can view the manual later) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Check your Power Options in the Control Panel to set your Sleep Mode and Hibernation up higher or set it to NEVER. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Power Option (it might be under System and Performance).


Below is a link to your user manual. You want to go to Pages 77 and 78 where it talks about changing the Power Plan. You want to select Change Advanced Settings as it talks about on pages 78 and you will be allowed to change the hibernate and sleep settings.

My computer is booting then after short time it return to standby mode then the fan of processor rotate at very high speed and signal is remove from monitor


Seems like the PC has Hibernation mode turned on. After 1 hour windows will put the PC and hardrives to sleep to conserve power. If you want to disable it, here how:
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Power Options icon.
  3. Within the Power Options Properties window, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. Uncheck the "Enable hibernation" checkbox to disable the feature, or check the box to enable it. This window also displays the total space required for hibernation.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

You can turn Sleep and Hibernate off in Windows but this sounds like it might be your Bios putting the system to sleep. In windows go to power options and turn sleep and Hibernation off but double check your Bios as well for a possible setting there that will put the computer in sleep or Hibernate mode.

Video not waking from sleep mode, can I slap a card in this machine?


Sleep mode is problematic in Windows XP and always has been. It works well on some computers and not on others. Before looking at the Video card as the culprit I would suggest you simply turn it off which will more than likely solve your problem. You do not need to use the Sleep Mode. Turn your monitor off to save energy. To turn Sleep Mode off;
  1. Begin by first clicking on the Start Button.
  2. Then click on the Control Panel icon located in the right column of the Start Menu.
  3. Now click on the Power Options icon to display the Power Options Properties Window.
  4. If your Start Menu is set to the Classic View, then begin by clicking on the Start Button.
  5. Then click on Settings, then click on the Control Panel icon to open up the Control Panel.
  6. Now, click on the Hibernate tab located at the top of the power options screen.
  7. Then uncheck the Enable hibernation option with your mouse if it happens to be enabled.
  8. Now click on the OK button to save your changes and exit the Power Options windows.
  9. And then close the Control Panel to return back to your Window session.
  10. Your computer will no longer enter into a hibernation sleep state when you are away from it.

go to control panel > power options. Turn off hibernate and sleep mode, change all settings to never sleep and change the setting for "when closing the lid" to "do nothing" sleep mode, hibernation can destroy the registry on these laptops, you are better off turning that garbage off and just letting it run.

Computer sleep mode


Turn it off at night or if you leave it for an extended period. It still uses power even in sleep mode, plus the longer Windows runs, the more chance of corruption.
