Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook
When powered on I can hear when the welcome screen comes up and can see a bit but is really dark. I have unplugged it and rebooted but still the same. Wondering where I might be able to adjust the brightness or if there may be a more serious outcome to this problem.
Try to install a vga monitor in the (db 15) Blue video conector...see if your laptop works fine...
then shoud be the inverter of your LCD that is not working anymore..the backlight is dead...that´s why the dark screen is driving you crazy!
see the model of your laptop and try to buy it on ebay..there are a lots of inverters there!
