Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

Stopping at the BIOS Splash screen

I just had the no power problem with my T30 and replaced the keyboard. It now powers up , but stops at the screen that says "IBM Thinkpad". I am able to press F1 at anytime and go to setup, but it won't boot any devices and when I press F12 to choose temporary boot sequence it freezes up.

    IBM think pad won't show the display. Screen went dark and started making a beeping sound. Not sure what to do here. Is there a way to reset or run an alternate program.

    I don't know how to fix this problem.

Hi

Reseat all the RAM, CMOS battery and any PCI graphics cards and then try to boot the computer.

Also remove all the memory cards and then turn on the computer. If you dont get any beep sounds, then it is a problem with 1 or more RAM cards.
Then alternatively try with 1 RAM at a time in different slots and check if it is a problem with any of the RAM cards or the RAM slots.

My ibm thinkpad t30 screen is very dark when i start it up and it wont allow me to see it well


Sounds like you are losing your backlight inverter. It sits under the bottom of the screen and is responsible for converting the DC power of the battery and power adapter to high voltage AC for the backlight in the lcd panel.
