    The IBM T40(P) come with a hidden re-install-partition. Try to press the Access IBM-button while booting up

    after the dark screen, look the hard drive led (the cylinder), does it blink at all? is there any activity or sound that you can hear from the hard drive loading windows? If yes, then the problem relate to your display, if no, you are out of luck....need to replace mainboard.

    when it goes black is there anything on the screen at all? was it supposed to come with an operating system installed?

IBM T-40 issues


When you download the T40 device drivers, they need to be the XP versions.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.
