IBM Thinkpad 2652 has horizontal and vertical gridlines on screen

Dear theHumble1,

Thank you for your response to my request for assistance troubleshooting
my IBM Thinkpad monitor problem. Saturday the monitor completely ceased to function. The monitor displayed various shifting patterns with no recognizable icons or letters. But today, Sunday, it is operating again but the lines are still present. In response to your comment I checked safe mode and the monitor does not display the gridlines. It is somewhat difficult
to tell when in safe mode because the resolution is reduced. But it is certainly not as prominent as it is in normal operation.

Again thanks for your input.

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 verticalgridlines. I started in safe mode and removed some of the music filesfrom my computer since it appeared I only had about a 1G of free memoryleft on the laptop. I now have 2G free. I restarted the computer andstill had gridlines. This morning I started the laptop and thegridlines appeared but this time the windows logon appeared and thestandard screen eventually displayed. But the problem is that thegridlines are now present with the normal screen. It is on the edges ofthe display screen and on various icons. How can I troubleshoot thisproblem?

Thanks,
Dhu

This is very possibly a hardware problem, namely a crack in the motherboard. Sorry, no easy or cheap fix for it if that's the case.

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.
