IBM NOT POWERING UP

I HAVE AN IBM T30 SERIES AND IT IS GIVING TROUBLE TO POWER UP. WHEN U PRESS THE POWER BUTTON ONLY THE LED COMES ON AND NOTHING APPEARS ON THE SCREEN. IF I LEAVE IT ON AND UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND LEAVE IT FOR A WHILE, THEN KEEP PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON, IT WILL COME ON. ANY SOLUTIONS?

This is going to be a motherboard component, and there's not going to be a simple fix. The specific problem area will need to be located and replaced, if it's a replaceable component. The problem will most likely be with the power management system or chip, but there is several other chips, resistors, and capacitors that work in conjunction with the power management system that can cause this problem. I'm going to suggest either taking it in for a professional diagnostics, or replacing the motherboard if you can find one for a reasonable/affordable price. Speaking from experience, most places are going to tell you "new motherboard", so, if you are comfortable changing it yourself and you can get a good deal on one (check Ebay), go this route and save the money on the diagnosis.

Ibm t30 laptop has no video at start up


Try doing a hard reboot.

Unplug AC and remove battery.
Press and hold POWER for 30 seconds.
Plug in AC.
Turn on.
Upon bootup insert battery.

If this does not work I regret to say the graphics card is busted.

T30 Power up problem


The c-mos won't cause this. The power button is integrated into the keyboard, and uses the same connector as the keyboard to get power to the system. In most cases, the board with the power button (which is part of the keyboard) is worn out. Occassionally the keyboard connector will work loose or get a little corrosion or dirt and not make a good contact, check and clean the connection. If the connection is good, then I'm afraid you will need to replace the keyboard in order to cure the problem.
