I have an IBM T20 and when I start it up, the screen does not come on, don't hear hard disk working, but the fan is working. There is beeping when started - 3 beeps, then follow by 3 beeps, and then 1...


That is likely. The beeps represent an error code. You might try borrowing an external monitor plugged into your laptop to see if anything shows on that screen when it boots up.

My Thinkpad G41 does not boot up, nothing comes up


Hello

Have you tried swapping out ram modules? This would probably be the cheapest. And, a faulty ram module gives a beep code. Try it, and let me know.

Kind regards

MY laptop beep twice and flag error code Bad CRC1, stop POST task


Hi,

sounds as if one of your memory modules is defect.
CRC stands for Cyclic Redundancy Check and is a form of checking the memory.
If you have two modules inside, take on out and see what happens.

Best regards

Screen


According to the support website, it could either a memory (DIMM) or motherboard (System board) problem. See beep codes and what them mean here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46018.html

First thing to do would be to remove the memory and put it back in (called 'reseating') to make sure there is a firm connection to the motherboard. Find out how to do this for your particular model here: Click here. If you have two memory modules installed and the remove/reseating action did not stop the beeping, try removing just one and attempt to boot the system.
  • If you get the same beeps again, remove the one you have installed and replace with the one you took out - try booting.
  • If you don't get the same beeping and you can then boot in to windows, then you've identified the bad memory module. Replace it.
If you still get the same beep code, then it sound like it's your motherboard that needs to be replaced.

IBM Thinkpad T30 2367 beeps 8 times


Hi,
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
