Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

T30 won't turn on

\015 I have an IBM ThinkPad T30. I push the power button and all five icons light up. After about a second, four turn off leaving only the "Z" icon lit green. On the monitor the battery icon is green and the moon icon is not lit.\015\012No water has gotten anywhere near this computer. I was using it this after noon, turned it off, and now (~3hrs later) it will not turn on.\015

Answers :

It might have some statical lockup

Here is the steps that you may try
Disconnect the AC adaptor, take the battery out, press the power button and hold about 7 second. Connect the AC adaptor and turn the unit on. If issue persists please post for further diagnostic.

Good Luck
This is a difficult problem to diagnose, there are many reasons it could happen. I can give you some suggestions about what you can try:
\015\012
\015\0121) Check your power supply, try to run on batteries instead, or if you are running on batteries, take the battery out and try running only on AC
\015\012
\015\0122) Reseat the memory, i.e. take it out, put it back in, make sure it's snugly in
\015\012
\015\0123) Reseat the hard drive, just like you did with the memory
\015\012
\015\0124) Check if the power button is making intermittent contact. Remove the top panel and inspect the power button's contacts for dirt/debris.
\015\012
\015\012You will need to refer to your thinkpad's manual for instructions on how to do the above operations. There are specific disassembly instructions. You can find a copy here:
