Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

Hi there. I have a problem with my Thinkpad T30 type 2366, for which I would appreciate any suggestions to rectify.

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.

Answers :

The IBM beep code 1 long beep + 3 short beeps indicates a video card problem.
\015\012The video card uses part of the main memory for video RAM. Try reseating the RAM module. If this doesn't work test the RAM module in another computer or get your friendly computer shop to test it for you.
\015\012If the RAM is OK then the fault is the video card and it is part of the motherboard.
\015\012The T30 is an old model laptop and the cost of replacing the motherboard would not be cost effective assuming you can even find one.
Cheack for the RAM. remove it and place it back again.
\015\012if not this refer to procesor over heating.
