stumbled across this forum a few minutes ago and since im having some issues with my laptop i thought someone could point me in the right direction. I purchased a T40 off eBay the computer came without a HDD so i purchased a Fujitsu 160gb separately. The problem im going through is that the computer is stuck, its just not doing anything when i turn it on it stays on the booting screen that shows the Thinkpad,Intel & Lenovo logos it says "To Interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button."
However when i try to press any button at all, whether it is F1, DEL, ENTER, the blue button it does nothing. I triedalso sticking a linux live CD and seeing if it would boot it, it reads it and im able to hear it spinning and reading it but the screen is just stuck there on the same boot screen. Any help would be appreciate it. Thanks!!
