Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook
My T43 has a dark screen. If I shine a flashlight close to it I can see the screen but not enough to do anything. I think it may be the video card. Where is it located? My husband will change it out for me if we can find out where to go to pull it out.
Thanks for any help you can give.
The back lite button sticks down get a needle and try to lift it if this brings the display back on,then the fault is that the spring that returns the switch has broken away from the fixing
the solution is to remove the button or replace the hole top plastic fascia as that is ware the spring has been bonded to
i removed mine and set the settings to shut the monitor down after 15mins
hope this helps

It is a LCD backlight problem. The usual cause is either a bad high-voltage driver or a bad controller signal from the mainboard of your computer. You need to consult a service technicain for your machine.
