Dear Forum Members,
Hope you can help me with the following situation.
My T500 machine went into hibernation after the battery drain and after that I could not get it to start. I tried the "long press power botton", reseting cmos options but no luck. When I press the power botton, the machine tries to start (without a single line of text on LCD) and then immediately stops. The only light that shows is the "Z" marked LED. The hard disk seems to be spinning but the fan does not. If I press the power button again, the hard disk stops.
I removed the memory and hard disk and try to boot it, but it shows the same behavior and does not produce any beeps.
Could the issue be with the motherboard? My warrenty has expired, so I need to find a way to recover this machine. Could some one please shed some lights.

Shahrul: Yes, I tried removing battery- >long press power button -> use AC adapter and try to boot approaches as well.
I still doubt if it has anything to do with the motherboard. Because, this happened with the power drainage.
