Bad memory stick, possibly. Or maybe bad motherboard. try different memory, and try swapping to different slots.

One it could be a bad ribbon. the other is a bad print hammer, or is failing, there is platic cap on the selenoid that cracks after years.
Needs replaced most likely, Or the selenoid plunger is gummed up.

Most likely the power supply has failed. Could be a fuse, both are internal. Fuse not likely.

If all the lights flash then you type and it goes away, means batteries need to be changed.

T30's do have a well reported problem with their memory slots. It is possible to fix it if you are brave and moderatly competent with a low-power (15-20W) soldering iron with a good bit (I recommend a flat oblique tip of about 2-3mm, not a pointed one).

Firstly, heat the soldering iron and clean all traces of solder from the bit. You can use a wet solder sponge, or even damp kitchen paper. It is VITAL to remove all solder.

Remove power and battery from the T30. Open the memory cover, and remove all memory.

Taking great care, press the bit of the hot iron with moderate pressure (about twice what you would use to press a key with one finger) on each pin in turn for about 1 second, on the contacts of the memory slot that is not working. Because you have no solder on the tip, it does not matter that you touch more than one contact at a time, but there are very small surface mount capacitors between the sockets. Be careful not to touch and unsolder these.

There is a warning here. Do no wipe the iron across the contacts. Always lift the iron before pressing it on the next pin(s). If you do wipe iron across the contacts, you WILL bend and short them. These are surface mount components, and the wire contacts are easily disturbed and shorted. If you do short the contacts, it will be difficult or impossible to fix.

Remember there are pins on both sides of the memory socket. Do not worry if some of the plastic of the socket melts, it is not a problem.

Continue until you have worked on all of the pins. Patience is a virtue here. Allow to cool, re-assemble and test.

I cannot promise that this will fix your T30, but I have extended the life of 2 out of 3 T30s I worked on in this way. Note extended, because the design flaw will cause the problem again sometime in the future. The board appears to flex, which puts strain on the solder joints.

Win10 should auto-detect it; so it should need a driver from it manufacture.
Assuming the monitor is properly functioning, and if you are still having problems:
1) Use the most up-to-date connection such as HDMI, DVI, or Display Port
2) Then with the monitor connected, force a Windows update.
3) Make sure the display adapter's resolution matches one of the monitor's supported resolutions.

Hi...
The process you go through to try and fix a corrupted NSF file is to run the sequence of fixup, compact and then updall.
To do this go to the console and run the following commands:
LOAD FIXUP database (Remembering to add -J switch if transactional Logging is on)
When this has finished then:
LOAD COMPACT database (you may need to add a switch here depending on your system config i.e. -B), and finally:
LOAD UPDALL Database (Usually with -r switch).
If you find that this does not solve the problem, then try running these commands from a DOS Command line without the Domino Server running - it can sometimes be more thorough.
The switches can all be found in the help file. If this does not help, then try to restore the file using the Lotus Notes Repair Kit tool. http://www.lotusnotes.repair/
Good Luck.

Only some third party vendors provide some good conversion applications but Microsoft never support using any these third party tools.

Try:- NSF to PST Converter
