T1600 boot fail

Hi,

Working in a student computer lab and have had several, 5 fail out of the blue. 

These are T1600s, running Windows 7, single monitor.  They will never boot at all, so no monitor and no reading a diagnostic.  The power supply test button at the plug does stay green when pressed and held. The fans will run during that process, however nothing else.  The error code numbers on the front cycle through different patterns and on all but 1, stops at 3.

Any advice

Mike

RE: T1600 boot fail

If LED 3 is on, the manual says to try reseating the CPU -- see:

Hi,

thanks for the reply... I just finished trying the recommended reseating of the CPU, but no change.  Any next recommendations?
