Recovering dead T61

#1 Post by karotlopj » Fri Jun 22, 2018 7:25 am

A few months ago my T61 stopped booting up. Now I just get a single long followed by two short beep codes.

Any ideas about trying to get the system working again?

It's a Type 7665-D71 - which I don't see listed under HMM icon.

1. Reseat the memory. Try to boot with 1 DIMM only. If this does not help, try another one.
2. Check it with external LCD connected.
3. Replace the motherboard.

This order.
