The hard drive is either dead or is loose. You can take it out and put it back in. If you hear clicking when you turn it on it is most likely the hard drive.

Ibm t30 laptop has no video at start up


Try doing a hard reboot.

Unplug AC and remove battery.
Press and hold POWER for 30 seconds.
Plug in AC.
Turn on.
Upon bootup insert battery.

If this does not work I regret to say the graphics card is busted.

I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.

Key board stops responding when windows loads


your mouse freezes; you should only use system restore as a last resort
any virus/spyware you had in the past will come back
turn the computer off(you may have to shut power off pressing on power button)
when you see ibm logo, tap F8 key repeatedly until your hear beeps or a high pitched noise
use option safe mode; use 'most recent config where my settings worked' option in safe mode(use up and down arrow keys to highlght, then press enter)
If that does not work, try another(earlier) restore pt w system restore or install mouse drivers on a cd on another laptop, then
place in cd rom and try to install it on the problem laptop
if this is no good, you should really reinstall windows, back up impt docs, etc.(delete old partition)
that model has a built in restore function by pressing F11 on startup, it will restore your piece to factory condition(along w spyware that comes along w the builtin ibm utility)
I had the same exact laptop, the fan got noisy, so I replaced it w another that was from a good t30, guess what:
"fan error"
Ibm laptops are too problematic to work on
thats why I use dell
if you need more help, msg me or post on here

T30 boot problem


Sorry, but probably your T30 (my favorite Thinkpad) has developed a problem with one of it's memory slots. It is an inherent problem with the Thinkpads. The way to tell is topress on the memory cover in a way that pushes the memory (or more to the point, the memory slots) into the motherboard. While keeping pressure on the memory, try to boot up. I use a T30, and have worked on several others, all have at least one slot with this problem. Also try taking out the memory which is closest to the front of the system, and pushing in on the remaining one. Hope this helps. If this is the problem, there are a couple of things you can do to keep it running, but probably with only one ram stick. Goood luck
