Hi I read this forum daily so... I'm asking if anyone knows a site that can lead me to resolving a boot problem on a thinkpad 600e, I have this Laptop that doesn't post It will try then just freeze with the power light and HDD light on. Wont boot off a FDD or CD. I also cant get in the easy set up, the lady who gave it to me to look at said that it would run ok then the screen would shut off, becomeing more frequent as she used it. Then all of a sudden.... "nothing" no boot no post just freezes like I said Oh yea Fan works lol It's also been running on AC without a battery for a long time. The HDD works because I put it in another thinkpad 600e but it had alot of errors in the device mngr. but the good thinkpad fixed those. So any help before I use it for parts thx. :confused:

If you do search for IBM 600E you will find a site that has all kinds of information on the computer. One thing I don't like about mine is that if the battery is dead you can not check or change the BIOS.
