IBM Thinkpad T30 2367 beeps 8 times

\015 I have an IBM Thinkpan T30 2367 when boots up it beeps 1 time, then 3 beeps, 3 more beeps, then finally 1 beep & the screen is black. I think there is a problem with the monitor or video card. What do you think?\015

Answers :

Hi,
\015\012It's your memory, or more to the point, the memory slots. take all memory out, install 1 piece in the slot closest to the back of the laptop, push down on the memory as if pushing it into the motherboard, and hold pressure while booting.
\015\012Bet that works. if not, let me know.
\015\012I've got the same machine.
\015\012Good luck
Very cool, thanks as well.

\015\012There was an actual piece of lint on the memory tab.

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
