Re: laptop won't turn on

First question is, did you open the case?  if your answer is yes, than you probably messed with some screws.  if you tighten the screws too much sometimes the motherboard wont respond.  
try this, slowly loosen/ tighten some screws one by one. 
if you hear the beeps going faster, you tighten it too much.  if its gets slower thank loosen it.  
if you loosen it and it still beeps, try removing it and see if it still does.  
if it still beeps after removing the screw put it back and just make the screw slightly loose. 
continue with the rest of the screws.
i figure this with a laptop and a pc.  and it was because of too tight screws

Re: laptop won't turn on

Same thing with mine...won't turn on properly. Before this happened, I was recieving the so-called "blue screen of death" error message. I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Anyone else recieved error messages. - Rich

IBM Thinkpad T30 2366 won't boot after the IBM Thinkpad screen

you can go to the BIOS setting? if you can,look for "Boot Device Priority" or something like that,it's usually placed on Advanced settings. Set the first boot device as your harddisk,save the settings and restart your computer
Please let me know if it's working or not

Try powering on laptop what happens do you hear any beeps or see any lights normally if u see lights this is a sign that it is working if not your motherboard could be bad if you see lights and hear constant short beeps this means your memory can be bad, Try powering on laptop without battery and only power supply plugged in.

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.

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
