T61 Dead, wont start

Hi there,

I ve a problem with my Lenovo T61, after it worked well for about 4 years, suddenly it wont start.


Modell type: 6460-8NG, no more warranty.


Problem description:


When pushing the power button:

Short blink of caps lock, num lock, hard disk and steady system lamp and battery.

The fan and hard disk work for about one secont then shut down, the screen remains dark all the time.

At the end only the System lamp stays on, no fan, no hard disk...


- Same problem when only on battery or power source.


- When removing the memory the beep sequence is coming.


- Same issue when removing harddisk, (obviously the hd lamp stays of)


- Reset with power button and battery removal doesent work. (10 times and one 30 second push)


Do you have an idea what it could be?

Thanks a lot for your help!!

Re: T61 Dead, wont start

Your T61 probably has a failed Nvidia GPU problem.
