  1. Hello I have a IBM thinkpad,that is several years old 2002 i think, and it will not turn on all it does is the screen will light up all the lights but the harddrive light will come on and not fans will come on ether. i belive it has windows 2000 but i am not sure because i have never seen it on. my aunt gave it to me because she needs some school files off it(word docs and stuff) I have opened it and cuold find nothing wrong exept for the fact that the cpu did not heat up at all.the graphics chip on the other hand got so hot that it burned my finger. please help i dont know what to do. any suggestions would be appreciated.
    thanks
