Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
IBM t42 comes on, beeps twice and goes off, both while connected to power or on battery
Yes it is the fan, get a can of compressed air and clean the air vents and the CPU fan with that, also i would check into the CMOS battery as it could be dead and needs replacing.
As the laptop starts up hit F1 when you see the IBM logo and check the date and time, that will be a clear indicator IF the CMOS battery is dead because it will not be the right date and time, it should however let you into windows if you put the date and time right (it may take a couple of attempts)
