Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 Notebook

1 Answer

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 beep. Can this be a mainboard issue?

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.

Laptop Not booting - No Screen


Clean your memory card, or reseat it. Clean the edge connector with soft eraser if reseating doesn't solve it. Do this when battery is disconnected, completely turn off and no other power supply is connected to it. If not maybe ram failed already. This is the first step before going to anything. For additional instructions try to find it in youtube. Post us some update.tnx

T20 black screen crash


This could be a problem with the memory. Try removing the memory and starting & running one chip at a time in both slots one at a time. If it turns out that the memory and slots are good, then this will be a motherboard component. Componenet problems can be tricky to track down, even for veteran professionals, so I suggest taking it in for a professional diagnosis.
