Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

T30 boot problem

\015 Seems to be a common problem.\015\012My trouble started when I installed too much RAM (2x1G). Most probable needed too much energy and fried the mother board. At least this I was thinking. No boot, nothing, just CPU fan working. But no power for CPU, airflow did not get warmer.\015\012Ordered new mother board. After assembly no change - no boot, just CPU fan. When I lifted my computer holding it from lower left corner it suddenly reacted and booted. Everything seemed to be OK, WinXP was running smoothly (with 1G RAM). But after restart everything repeated and only slight bend of the left corner did the job.\015\012Then I left it to hibernate and it never recovered. Tried everything (cleaned and assembled 3x, tried different power options etc.) Next thing I will try is to clean the main power switch (now it has a bad connection). But it has serious power isuues, most probably some fuses are out.\015

Hi there. I have a problem with my Thinkpad T30 type 2366, for which I would appreciate any suggestions to rectify. A few days ago, I booted it up but, instead of it doing so, it emitted a series of beeps and then 'hung' there with a blank screen. The beep pattern was as follows: BEEEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEEEP. I.e., 1 long beep, 3 short ones, 3 further short ones and then 1 long one. Looking on the net, I saw a post that suggested removing the battery, then pressing the on/off b
