Quick thoughts. I’ve got a dead ThinkPad on my hands. I’ll plug it in, and the battery charging/charged light turns on, so it’s definately recieving power. But whenever I try actually turning it on, nothing happens. I’ve tried holding down the “on” button for 30 seconds, everything.
Any guess what might cause this kind of malfunction? If it’s a bad memory or a dead CPU, it would at least POST first, wouldn’t it? But this just won’t even power up at all.
