See if it will boot from a bootable CD. I doubt it. If not, there is probably a motherboard problem.  You can try the following: Remove the battery, and the AC external. Press the power button for 10 seconds and release. Repeat 10 times. Replace the battery and AC and see if it starts. If not, pooched motherboard. ... Thinkpads_User
