Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

I have the same problem with the ibm thinkpad t30

When i contacted ibm they told me that a new system board would definetly fix this "known issue" since the document that corrects this problem is an internla document. THERE IS FLIM FALM GOING ON WITH THE NEW OWNERS OF IBM.

THE WHOLE IDEA IS TO GET YOU TO PURCHASE MERCHANDISE YOU DO NOT NEED WHICH IS WHY YOU HAVE THE MEMORY ERROR. I THINK THIS IS LAME. SHOULD ENGOUGH PEOPLE POST MESSAGES ON THIS FORUM IT COULD DEFINETLY MEAN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST THE MANUFACTURER.

IBM/Lenovo should replace the motherboard without charge, since the memory slot issue is known, even if you are out of warranty.

But, you can fix that front slot by resoldering the pins on the board, using a fine-tipped soldering iron and some flux. Quite often it is sufficient to do only the 10 outer pins in each side, but it's better to do all of them. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

Hope that helps.

My IBM thinkpad t30 beeps 8 times at me when i go to turn it on and will not start up what is that


Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card. Since the frame buffer memory is on the video board's memory chips then you will have to replace the entire board.

Memory slot not working


Unfortunately, it would be difficult to detect 'why' your memory slot stopped responding. It could have been a short somewhere on the motherboard, which could be found by searching for a small discolored area (darkened) somewhere between the power inputs and the memory slot itself. If this is the case, fixing it yourself would be excrutiatingly difficult, because while you bypass the short, you could very well create another. The memory slot may just be filled with dust, thereby cancelling out one of the dozens of contact points. It could also be one of those contact points within the connection. In my opinion it would be far less time consuming for you to simply replace the motherboard, as the cause is likely unrepairable.

Motherboard question


You must get the same exact board for your laptop, there are no other replacement boards.
You have to get one that says it is for the IBM Thinkpad T30-2366-81U.

The common problem to this is trying to do an upgrade from windows itself, make sure you are doing a fresh install by booting from CD. If this does still not work and you have a legitimate windows disk, contact the microsoft helpline and they will be able to issue you with a new serial

IBM THINKPAD a31 do not boot up


I just read a thread on this. Try pulling the mini pci network card. Or maybe one of your memory slots is bad so you could pull a memory card out and try swapping things there. Help for these issues can be found on the Lenovo site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_states_and_blue_states

there are also user manuals and hardware replacement manuals there.

Be careful wth the mother board. It could also be your problem but hopefully it's something easier. mother boards have been known to fail when the computers are handled in such a way as to flex them.
