Hi, I installed the windows service pack 2 on my ibm t30 and when it asked me to restart I did, but nothing comes on. The screen is blank and there is no sound. The fan just whirls away but the hard disk...

The hard disk may needs reseating so it makes proper electrical connection or the hard disk decided to fail at this time.
If the laptop does not boot up after reseating the hard drive, try going into the BIOS and check if the BIOS detects the hard disk, if the BIOS connot detect the hard disk then most likely the hard disk has failed.

Blank screen upon startup

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.

IBM T30 screen ramdomly goes blank and computer freezes.

Reset your bios settings to "Bios defaults", then disable power management.
In Windows, go to device manager and try to detect new hardware. Follows screen instructions.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2367 beeps 8 times

It's your memory, or more to the point, the memory slots. take all memory out, install 1 piece in the slot closest to the back of the laptop, push down on the memory as if pushing it into the motherboard, and hold pressure while booting.
Bet that works. if not, let me know.
I've got the same machine.
Good luck

Beeping noise and blank screen

The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self-Test). Here's a link to the Lenovo site that might help you interpret the beeps you're hearing:

Good luck.
