I am in France now with horrible service support (unfortunately, my still good warranty is for US depot only, so not international), so I'm hoping I can sort my problem out myself before chasing down a repairman 200 miles away.
here's what happened. yesterday I rebooted after a windows upgrade and the black thinkpad startup screen came on, then on windos start up it spun its wheel at light green/blue screen phase for 15 minutes (thinking maybe it was upgrading again). It wouldn't fully boot into windows, just spun its wheel. So I rebooted several times. Same issue.
It was late, so I rebooted and left it to work itself through, maybe finally healing itself through its loop phase. Woke up this morning and laptop seems dead. No response when I hit turn on button. No red light above thinkpad coming on. And even when I plug in power cord, the red light doesn't come on.
Of course I am hoping the power cable somehow died, but I can't test that locally. Would leaving it on cause the powerboard to fail?
Is there a reset sequence I'm missing. If I could get it to fire up I would do system reset.
Any ideas on what's going on, help?
