Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad R51 ?

IBM Thinkpad T30 wont boot up

\015 Hi there. I have a Thinkpad T30 which has been very good and reliable. Its probably around 5 years old now. Over the past week it wont boot up. I get either nothing on screen, and just the light next to he power button going. All he lights start when I press the power button. The only noise I get is the fan apart from the hard drive trying to start. I pulled the hard drive out and put it in a portable USB hard drive unit, and the drive seems to work when viewed on a diff laptop. I occassionally get the IBM logo come up, and also the press F1 or F8 (I think), but most times the screen stays blank. Is anyone able to suggest what I can do please? Thanks\015
