I have the following problem:
My Lenovo Thinkpad L530 won't turn on. I plug it in, press the power button and it comes to life for a splitsecond before turning off again and repeating the process.
If I remove the RAM module it still won't boot but doensn't shut down either; it stays on and beeps 1-3-3-1 times (bad memory, who would have guessed).
After throwing the RAM back at it (I have tried multiple modules) it starts doing it's turn-on-turn-off thing again.
What could be the problem? I have tried swapping the RAM, disconnecting the internal display, connecting an external monitor and booting it with and without battery.
The screen stays off the entire time, no backlight, no post.

What kind of RAM are you using?

That should be find as long as you avoid types that are described as "Value RAM", which sometimes have compatibility issues.
