[ltp] R500 suddenly won't post
Tue, 3 Nov 2015 01:49:55 +0000 (UTC)
I have a Thinkpad R500 that I'm preparing for sale. Prior to this
trouble, it worked fine. I installed Debian 8 on it, forgetting that it
wasn't plugged in, so the build aborted halfway into it. So I let it
fully recharge. When I press the power button, the numlock, capslock, and
AC lights turn on. Then the capslock and numlock turn off. The computer
then sits there with a blank screen doing nothing indefinitely. Pressing
the power switch again will turn the AC light off, leaving the plug and
battery lights lit.
Where do I go from here?
A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?
