Well... at least your machine boots :-) I've a T21 Thinkpad with the
'Blink of Death' (faulty electrical components on the main board) that
is being used as a doorstop. Had to give my son my T30 so that he'd have
a laptop that actually boots up reliably for college. When that one dies
I'll get him a non-IBM/Lenovo machine to replace it.
