    I have a IBM T22 laptop with Windows XP Pro installed. When I push the power switch all I get is a white screen. Could this indicate a problem with the motherboard or could the hard drive be dead or the processor shot? Any suggestions?

    from my experience but not always that usually has indicated that moisture has gotten to the motherboard which can be a bac thing. couple things you might want to try and that is try switching out the hard drive if you have another one around, if its starting up that usually indicates the memory is fine if you hear the hard drive start up thats also a good sign. so you might want to check with ibm about a replacement board. if thats possible.

    I'm afraid I don't have another hard drive but I can't hear the hard drive start up when I start the computer. I don't think replacing the mother board is worth it.

    from what you have explained so far its sounding like you have one dead laptop, yes usually trying to find a replacement board for a laptop is pretty pricey, along with alot of the laptop parts. found that out when working on a dell laptop not to long ago. but maybe someone with a little bit knowledge about this will look at this thread soon. i do know some but im not going to say its hopeless yet untill someone higher than myself can tell you a little bit more about it.
