T21 will not boot up

My T21 will not start when I press the on button, all that happens is the green light shaped like a barrel with a double arrow in it flashes once. Anyone please help before I bin it. Thankyou

Re: T21 will not boot up

This is not an unknown problem, try starting it without the battery. More instances of same/similar experiences can be found at TPF. search the T2 & T3 forum for "bod"

Change the unit's CMOS battery.

Full disclosure, I don't work for Lenovo.
