Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook ?

Blank screen upon startup

\015 When I turn on my lenovo t61, the computer screen remains blank. the computer is on and running, but i dont think it is running normally, and will remain on with a blank screen until the battery and power plug is removed or the power button is held for a few seconds. i have tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 30 seconds, and restarting, but end up with the same result. i have also tried to connect to an external monitor, but the new monitor says it has no signal coming through. thanks for any help you have.\015

Answers :

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.
