T60 not powering up

\015 I have an IBM Thinkpad T60- it has to be connected to mains because the battery no longer works, but i have it connected to the mains, i turned it on went to go make lunch and when i came back it was dead. I pressed the power button again, and the side slanted Z in a circle is on, so is the Capslock and Numlock, but there is no life. except the dvd drive that just spins. Please help, what could the problem be???\015

Answers :

I bought 13 of these T-60's for my company and within 4-9 months, ALL of them will not hold a charge. I have bought new batteries, but the laptops stil will nbot hold a charge. They are no paperweights. I will ne ver buy Lenovo **** again. Ever since IBM sold out, they have gone downhill.
The battery might be so dead that it's faulting the charging system, remove the battery, remove the power then plug it back in (with out the battery) and try turning it on,.. if that doesn't work try looking up how to reset the bios (or remove the bios battery) for a BIOS reset.
