  1. Hi all
    I took my IBM t42 laptop on a trip away from home and the first time I tried to use I was outside it booted normally and then came up with what I think was a BSOD but as the sun was bright I could not read the message so I turned it off with the power button and took it indoors to restart it but with no luck I don't even get anything on the screen bios or hard drive activity but the fan runs and the power light is on, If i insert a cd I can hear it spinning. I re seated the memory and hard disk, removed all power for a few minutes with no luck. The following day it worked as normal and the day after but now will not come on again. Any ideas please.
