Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook ?

Does not boot, fan spins up/down/up/down solid green light

\015 The laptop fan spins up and down constantly, no video, no beeps at all, pulled the battery and tested w/o battery, tested with just the ac plug, pulled the memory, pulled the hdd, and also pulled the cd drive out to verify, and still nothing. The green light that looks like a lightning bolt comes on solid and that is it. Any other suggestions before i tell my friend he needs a new laptop?\015

Answers :

Thinkpads are notorious for this problem. Everything suggested I tried to no avail. There are hundreds of complaints about the same problem. The computer goes to sleep, makes fan noises, but won't wake up. I've owned two Thinkpads and won't buy another one. Tis a shame to buy a laptop only to have it last just beyond the warrenty period and the give out. I once heard this computer called a Stinkpad, now I know why. I wouldn't recommend anybody buying one.
