Question about IBM ThinkPad A31 Notebook

IBM Thinkpad 2652 has horizontal and vertical gridlines on screen

Dear Fixya,

I was running multiple CPU intensive applications. Computer threw exception and blue screen emerged with memory dump message.
Next time I tried to start laptop, screen would only display series of fine horizontal and vertical gridlines. I started in safe mode and removed some of the music files from my computer since it appeared I only had about a 1G of free memory left on the laptop. I now have 2G free. I restarted the computer and still had gridlines. This morning I started the laptop and the gridlines appeared but this time the windows logon appeared and the standard screen eventually displayed. But the problem is that the gridlines are now present with the normal screen. It is on the edges of the display screen and on various icons. How can I troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks,
Dhu

Try to remove your Memory modules and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. Makes sure to clean both sides of the memory contacts.

Driver video controler type 2652


The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

How do i change the screen from vertical display to horizontal


The IBM ThinkPad Z61t computer runs the Windows operating system. Normally, Windows is displayed on a monitor in a manner that makes it easy to read. If you want to change the screen display configuration (from vertical to horizontal), modify the screen display properties in Windows itself. This process causes the computer to rotate the image displayed on the screen by 90, 180 or 270 degrees, depending on the setting you choose.

1.Right-click on an empty portion of the Windows desktop on the Z61t.

2.Click "Properties."

3.Click "Display."

4.Click "Change display settings."

5.Click the "Orientation" drop-down window. Select the "Landscape" option to make the screen display items in a horizontal manner.

Ibm thinkpad A30 2652


Some of the older thinkpad had a program you from the OS or a boot floppy to had to run to get change the bios settings. But the BIOS key on most is F1. So if you press that key as soon as you turn the machine on and anything appears on the screen, and once you've provided the password you can then change the password to blank within the bios.

If you don't know the password at all, there may still be a way to reset it, but it may require a call to IBM/Lenov, or some other tedious process.
