    My T41 boots up normally, then after a few minutes, the screen goes black, but the system is still on. If I close the monitor, and then re-open it, the picture comes back for a minute or so, then goes black again. Is this a motherboard issue?

The monitor does`nt work, but the computer still works,how can I get a Dell monitor to work with the T41 notebook. I have them connected,but the monitor stays black


This may be a defect in the graphics card, since the external monitor (is it properly connected to the VGA-connector and is the power on?) should be recognized automatically and display instead of the internal monitor. The behaviour of the laptop in case an external monitor is connected can sometimes be controlled via the BIOS, which is impossibile to do if the internal monitor or the graphics card doesn't work. I'm afraid that, if you can't reset the BIOS yourself, this may be a case for the repair service.

I am using IBM t41 think pad, but from last 2year ...


There might be loose parts or connection inside the laptop. Is your laptop still under warranty. If it is still under warranty, i suggest that you have it repaired at our depot repair department. Opening the laptop on your own will void the warranty.

Lcd screen stuck in external screen mode


How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p


Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
Notes:
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

IBM T41. black screen


It's a common problem with flex of the unit causing the video chip to coming un-soldered from the motherboard. It's possible to repair but very difficult requiring luck and specialist equipment.

T41 IBM thinkpad monitor goes off


Saw exactly the same think on another t41 i was trying to fix. If it was moved at all screen went off.

Turned out it was corrosion on the motherboard that was causing the problem.

Has it been liquid damaged or got damp in the past?
