OS is not loading in IBM Think T43 laptop

\015 I have IBM Think T43 laptop. When i switch on the machine I am able to hear machine sound loading the system but the screen dosent dispay anything its blank not even the OS....I also tried with an external moniter and I had the same issue. But some times machine gets started but hangs in between. When I remove the battery press the power button for a minute and connect to the power cord it starts but hangs in between before even loading the desktop. I am not sure Whts the issue whether its virus or harddrive problem or video card issue. Also I tried using my harddrive in other similar machine and it worked perfectly. Please let me know what would be the issue. So that i can try to fix it.\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012Akila\015

Answers :

From your description I would say you have a motherboard problem. It can also be cpu or ram. When you last had it running if it quit suddenly on you or if it was running hot you may have overheated the cpu. If it shut down normally it is possible the ram modules are faulty or loose in the sockets. I would look at those two and re seat them in their sockets. If you can try another cpu that would let you know if that's the problem, and try the same with the ram.

\015\012Unfortunately past that point you are looking at a part failure on the motherboard which usually means replacement.

\015\012From your description it does sound like cpu problems or motherboard.
