Thinkpad T510 won't turn on.

2014-04-07, 0:40 AM

Hello.  I purchased a used T510 a month ago, and I was using it with no problems.  All of a sudden, the laptop turned off and won't turn back on.  I tried a number of solutions such as a taking the power adapter and battery out and then hitting the power button 11 times with the 11th time being held down for 30 seconds.  However, I know there is power running through the laptop because the CD/DVD drive is able to eject.  Also, the battery light indicator at the back of the laptop constantly blinks after I hit power.

 

Please help me if possible.  I know this is a used laptop, and it is buyer beware.  However, I'm just hoping to get a solution from the people here.  Thank you in advance.

Solved! See the solution

Remove all the RAM and try booting it. If it doesn't make a 1-3-3-1 beep, it's probably the motherboard.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U
