    no boot

    I have same problem with old computer. T30 have heat problem for memory. the solder get hot, causing cracks to form and not electric flow. The fix is resolder conections 200 per slot. Can be done in less than 1/2 hour I am told. If under warenty, have them give you a new mobo with fix as they did a recall for this problem. most happen over time and when upgrade is done done. Poor design.
