I have a IBM Thinkpad 770ed and my brother borrowed it to watch a DVD, and when he put the DVD in and started it (Lion King) he said after a while the DVD got stuck than it shut down. Now it will not start up. It starts to run than nothing happens, everything stops. I am wits end, is there anything I can do? Thank you for your time.

I removed the cd rom and battery. I can hear the computer start up like it usually does than after about 3 seconds than it shuts down or I should say it does not shut down it stops loading. There are no beeps or nothing else happens. Thevolume icon is blinkingon the little display on the keyboard. I hope this helps out a little more.

I just found out my neice had the computer on and than covered it with pillows as my brother was driving. It sounds like it might have overheated. But now it does not even start up. Is there any hope of it working again?

Sounds like some type of hardware problem. <_< Probably not something you're going to be able to fix yourself.

Likely a power supply problem. Your computer has pretty good protection against overheating, but it's possible the CPU or mobo could have been damaged. I'd suggest you bring it to an authorized IBM repair facility.
