IBM Thinkpad 600E Type 2645-8A0
Pentium II, Running Windows 98 (I think)
ThinkPad R40, Type 2723
Running Windows XP Professional
Both laptops were running fine about two months ago. I turned them off and used my other laptop. When I returned to the laptops after those 2 months of inactivity, both were dead as doornails. Neither will boot up or even turn on for that matter.
I let the AC line plugged in hoping that the internal battery was just drained but that does no good.
What the heck happened? What can I do.
