I changed the memory module from PC2-5300S to PC2-6400S and for two or three times that I turned the machine on, I got a beep code that I can't find anywhere: 1-4-3-4. All short beeps. After that, I've never gotten it again. I detached the LCD and tried it on another T61, where it works fine. I took off the keyboard & trackpad in addition, and tried again on the dock, with the external VGA. Nothing but that 10-15 seconds of spinning fan. The fan is completely blown out, so it's pretty clean.
So, what was the beep code, if anyone knows, and am I to conclude this MoBo is RIP? Thanks in advance!

What happens if you power the system with no RAM installed ? Does it beep 1-3-3-1 ?

I couldn't figure out was caused it, and ended up picking up a replacement board for ~20 USD on eBay (it was a 14 widescreen system). My best bet as to what caused it is either the RAM sockets have gone bad, or there is some connectivity issue between parts of the board somewhere else. It couldn't have been the nVidia GPU failure as it was a GMA board.
