Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

Hello my compaq v6000 doesnt work. when i hit the power button all lites are on but the screen blank plus the hard drive indicator doesnt flash at all..


Answers :

Remove battery and leave off for about five minutes. remove power cord as well. replace and try to start. if it does the same thing there must be a problem with your motherboard.. I had the same issue, but with sony vaio. i had to remove the motherboard and resolder the main chasis grounds hoping i had a cold solder condition. It worked. situation may be a bit different, but if removing the battery doesn't work for you, you may need to try that. complicated if you've never done it before.
Try removing the memory Dimms and see if it shows post screen. If that does not work then try removing the hard drive and cd-rom drive. The computer BIOS should still show video on the computer with these components removed. If still nothing then try resetting the cmos for the Bios by using the jumper pins or removing the watch battery for about 20 seconds then re-install. After that if the computer still does not start then the laptop motherboard is probably bad.
