Re: Lenovo T430 Screen Won't Turn On and not booting up

I had the same problem.  Lenovo sent out a person to replace LCD screen--not the problem. Then said it was the motherboard.  Not the problem.  A person at tech support told me to push the power button quickly 10 times and then hold it down for 10 secs.  It worked.  I never heard of such a thing.

Hi pebsey, welcome to the forums,

 

I would suggest you visit the Lenovo, 3000 & Essential notebooks board; that's the family the G505 belongs to and you may find a relevant thread about your symptoms there, if not by all means start a new one.

I have a T440 and it frequency does this. Push power button fast for 10
times and then hold down for 10 secs. Repeat if screen doesn't start

Re: Lenovo T430 Screen Won't Turn On and not booting up

I also just get the green light on power button only. won't boot into safe mode by hitting F8.  Have tried external monitor, removing battery and trying to boot with power supply only, no luck. Even removed ram, get 2 sets of 4 beeps. Any ideas?

 I was about to throw in the white flag until I read your solution.  I almost fell off my chair when I saw it boot up and work.

Thank you, Thank you, and Thankyou!

Re: Lenovo T430 Screen Won't Turn On and not booting up

Sorry to bump a necro thread, but I just solved this issue with my old T430. OP should remove the ram under the keyboard (which isn't very obvious, its really easy to miss) plus the ram in the bottom DIMM slot that is easy to get at and see if they gets the laptop beeping about the lack of RAM.

 

If so, put a stick of ram back in the slot behind the keyboard & take a bright light at an off angle to the screen and boot it up, you may faintly see the Thinkpad BIOS screen. If so, your backlight has died and its time to order a new screen off eBay for $30. VGA/DisplayPort out doesn't seem to work for some reason at boot, so its really easy to think that the whole laptop is dead when its just the screen!
