    Most computers do beep _ONCE_ to indicate that the POST (Power On Self Test) has _SUCCESSFULLY_ completed, and that the computer is about to start to "boot" from your disk-drive. Remove any CD-disks and USB-devices and 3.5" diskettes.

Hi. I think the problem on your machine is the RAMS if you here the beeping sound. I would suggest that you remove the memory and clean the contact points with an eraser but make sure that you remove all the receduces and also make sure that when you plug them back you should double check if they are properly seated. If you still having the same issue after doing the troubleshooting step then try a known good memory so that you could make sure that the problem is not with the memories you have.

Open the panel on the back and remove the ram. Boot the computer. If the boot code changes then it's probably bad ram. If it's the samew beep code then probably a bad motherboard

IBM Lenovo Thinkpad R61 gets 1 long & 2 short beeps on startup


Try this:
Open two RAMs, clean them properly and connect only one RAM then try. If nothing changes, then remove the RAM and insert the other one. And try again.

If this fails too, then there is a good chance that you have motherboard related problem

Lenovo R61 won't get to login


Hi,
I,d suggest To charge the battery Fully.
Then power up the laptop, with A/C Adaptor connected.
Also check your models user manual, regarding the sleep/hibernate mode. the laptop may have gone into one of these modes. Usually a ( zzz ) Icon Key or Similar.
Also when booting press the LCD/VGA Button.
If all else fails, try to see if your laptop, has a hard-reset button or switch. ** Sometimes this can be a small hole ** On the underside of laptop. *** Only use with laptop Powered Off ***
