A few days ago I had a problem on my laptop (ThinkPad T500). When I press the power button, the machine tries to start without a single line of text on LCD and then stops. The only light that shows is the "Z" marked LED. The hard disk seems to be spinning. If I press the power button again, the hard disk stops but light is still on. On the next day when I tried to open it the battery was empty(was full). I recharged it to full capacity. Still the probelm is there. Again the next day the same thnig happend and the battery is empty. At this time I asssumed the the computer is dead(finished). However, after a few days, I tried to use the laptop using the docking station and worked fine. It was a mistery for me! I tried to shutdown and start it again several times and was fine. On the next day I could not start it.
Can anybody suggest me what the probelm is?

it could be a possibility that the battery might be faulty.
try starting the unit without docking station and without the battery; just have the power adapter connected to it. can the unit start ?
then place back the battery (no docking station) + power adapter = does the unit start ?
Thank you for getting back to me.
I tried all options but it did not work.
