Blank screen upon startup

When I turn on my lenovo t61, the computer screen remains blank. the computer is on and running, but i dont think it is running normally, and will remain on with a blank screen until the battery and power plug is removed or the power button is held for a few seconds. i have tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 30 seconds, and restarting, but end up with the same result. i have also tried to connect to an external monitor, but the new monitor says it has no signal coming through. thanks for any help you have.

    Sounds like it is having problems getting all the hardware up and running.



    Remove and reseat the hard-drive and also any expandable memory and try again. Report any result.

    Did you power up the external monitor first before you booted up the laptop?

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.
