Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook

1 Answer

No visual display

Hi

Have a IBM ThinkPad T23. When powering on last night for some reason there was nothing showing on the screen. I have plugged my desktop monitor in to see if any errors showed but it booted up ok and everything proceeded to work without any issue.

When putting it into hibernate briefly on the Laptop screen you can see the image but its almost as if looking at a shadow, its very very dark, I have tried increasing the brightness using the fn keys but this made no difference.

Is there any key press that could have been done inadvertantly to cause this? Or does anyone hae any idea what to try next.

Thanks
I have the same problem, I turn on the computer it beeps and the screen stays black. Last night the screen went white with black lines, but at least it went to the login screen now nothing but black

It sounds like your graphics card is shot. If your graphics card is a dedicated graphics card, you might be able to get it fixed/replaced; if it is embedded, then you are probably going to have to buy a whole new display screen.

Ibm t23 thinkpad no display already check ram still no display


Does it throw a beep code after you turn it on? Try plugging a monitor into the VGA port on the back and see if it displays there on boot. In my experience no video usually indicated a memory problem but it could possible be a video card or lcd inverter.

Display is very dark.


Hello !

The most common reason for a dark screen, is a backlight problem. Your backlight or inverter board is faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

In most laptops with S-video connector, the Screen Resolution must initially be lowered down to match the capacity of the TV. This page might give you additional insights.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Function F7 will enable the external video monitor connection and will toggle between the screen, the screen plus external monitor, and the external monitor only. Try hitting function F7 and see if that helps. Also there is a small switch that is activated when you close hte lid to turn off the display when the lid is closed. make sure that this little switch is not stuck.

T23 wont boot


I would unplug it and remove the battery. Plug it back in and try without battery, if it still doesn't work, unplug the power again and remove the memory (RAM). Plug it back in and try again without RAM, if it beeps then the motherboard is probably good. If you had more than one piece of RAM, try one at a time and see if you get it to boot with one of them.

Can't power up an IBM T-23


are you getting any life at all? i.e are the power indicators coming on, are you getting any booting messages on the screen?

are you getting the windows logo screens?

I'm trying to ascertain whether this is a hardware or a software issue.
