T60 screen stays black and won't come on - IBM PC Laptops


Answers :

Any activity on the hard drive LED? If there is, hook up an external monitor and see if you can get a picture that way.

If you don't have any activity from the hard drive light LED and the screen stays dark then try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and turn on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If after that you stilll don't have video the motherboard is bad. Also you may want to try a good known stick of memory in each of the slots to make sure your existing memory sticks are good.
