Hi Larry - Hi Gang,
I have an IBM Thinkpad 770x. I try using it the other night, it had been two weeks since I used it and it would not boot up. When I boot up I can hear the fan but no display. The Floopy clicks once and that is about it. I can not view the display so I can't see the set up. I plugged in a monitor to see if that was it but no luck. I also went out and replaced the battery on the system board thinking that would have some affect on the CMOS but nothing. When I try to boot up to a startup disk it does not seem to be reading it. I have a friend that has the same laptop. I switched out my hard drive to recover what was on there (running Win 98). I also switched out the RAM thinking that would have some affect but no luck. I think it is the system board. Can someone please help me with this. I really need to have this baby up and running.
Thank you for taking the time out to read this.
