My R61 won't boot. It turns on, the power and battery leds are on, HDD led turns on for a short bit (removing HDD didn't do anything). I can open the DVD drive successfully.
It seems that the CPU fan is not spinning and the screen stays blank, even on external monitor.
I blew the fan with some canned air a couple of times - some dust went out but it's still not spinning. I tried removing RAM and got the 1-3-3-1 beep when both RAM boards were out.

It seems that the CPU fan is in fact spinning. However, the display is still blank (both the built in one and/or the external one). Also, there's no HDD activity after turning the system on, the led blinks once after which only the power led and battery/plug led are on

your Nvidia GPU has failed. You would need to get a new motherboard. Do you still have warranty? If not then you should consider Post Warranty Warranty (ThinkPlus).

you should call Lenovo customer care and speak to them about it.
