Question about IBM ThinkPad G40 2388 Notebook
Well it started about 12 am 11/20/08
i was puting in a new hard drive.. i plugged in everything then turned it back on and the screen wouldnt come on you know when your computer is inactive for a while and the light turns yellow well it does that and when i turn off the monitor and then turn it back on it just shows the oppions like resize ect. so i took my tower (compaq presario) (( old yes i know)) in to a nother room and i plugged in the tower in to the monitor and it worked so i then turned it off again to put the new hard drive in and yet again the monitor would not work.. Im stumped i dont know what to do
So if anyone does know what to do then ill be glad to have the help im just hopeing that its not the pice that you plugg in to the computer.
Initially, pls check the Master/Slave jumpers. Additionally, pls check that the IDE flat cable is connected right.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
