Dont buy this laptop. It obviously has a defect. Dissapointing since these laptops are supposed to be high end. I Have the same exact issue after a month. Plug in power source and three to four flashes on the power indicator, no lcd and wont power on.. The user manual says this is a systems board issue. I want a refund.

Are you saying you are now 4 weeks waiting on a replacement part (systemboard) or that the system died after 4 weeks of use? These failures tend to be early in life. If you are waiting on the part, please send me a PM with your sevice case number - will see what we can do to move this along.
Sorry for the trouble!
That seems really odd - could you send me a PM with the MT and serial number of your system? I'd like to look into the history of these repairs. Thanks!

Ok first time poster. I have had about 20 thinkpads over the years and this is my first one to die. I am nearing the end of my dissertation and put my 13 month old x220 to sleep and then off to a meeting. When I go there nothing but this light sequence. I was told immediately it was the motherboard by tech support and now I wait and wait and wait to find out what my options are. I am afraid based on the runaround I am getting that my thinkpad buying days are over. Maybe I will pull out my 500, 510 701C, 380ED of one of my X31s . They all still work just fine!

Are you waiting because technical support couldn't help you? or you are waiting for your laptop to come back from warranty repair? What runaround are you getting?
