It is seated now - thanks for all of your help. It appears I have a dead mobo - drat.
Please describe the symptoms fully. No signs of life at all? Charging LED illuminating? No response whatsoever when you press the power button, no matter how brief? Have you installed a new CMOS battery?

Sad, **bleep** fine machines when they ran. RIP.
You near me? I might buy that T30 for parts.

I have two dead T30 mobo's now <sigh>
I was thinking about listing them on ebay - I'll change my profile so that you can email me.
Not necessary, you can just email me, my addy is in my sig.

From the photo provided, I see the metal internal piece is missing from the caddy. Your supplier did not provide a complete part. This is the part that will fit over the two outboard HD screws to hold the caddy in place and is necessary for function.
The caddy screws to the HD, the cover has the metal piece that attaches to the HD and closes the drive in the laptop. It's integral with the cover and that photo is far too small to tell if the part is there or not.
