if you hear the windows log in sound it means the display is t blame and most likely the back-light inverter is out and need to be changed or some contact wire.. In this case you need to open it and change the inverter or change the display . If it does show a few devices and the logo screen when you open it ..and after that when it boots up in windows it shows the black screen ..it is a video card settings error and you need to either reinstall windows or try to boot in safe mode and reinstall the graphic card .. In this case it is nothing wrong physically .. but just a setting made is unsupported and this causes the lack of image .. Also if it is just the back light inverter you should have an idea of image if you look real carefully .. its kinda like a shadow .. and if this scenario is happens and you have a shadow image it means there is nothing wrong with the display itself but just the back light inverter is dead.. and will be cheaper to replace .. let me know what you've managed to do ..
Hi blue_sky_day, While googling on the net, I found something related to your problem at this web site: http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=12813 There are explained many things about your IBM 600E Thinkpad, you will have to read it and see if you can solve your trouble.
This sounds to me like either your flourescent lighting tube is beginning to go bad ,,, or the inverter is going bad ... or even both. :-)
The cheapest and easiest solution for you is to simply replace the LCD screen (replacing the inverter or the tube are actually a bit cheaper, but not quite as easy to do - most computer repair centers will try to talk you into a new screen anyway). This is actually very simple for either you or someone you know who is an avid "do-it-yourselfer". IBM makes ity very easy. You will find easy, detailed instructions in the ThinkPad 600/600E (2645)Hardware Maintenance Manual, IBM S10L-9619-03 June 1999 available for FREE downloading in .pdf format on IBMs website. Follow this link to some really sweet deals on LCD screens for your 600e on eBay for under $35.00. http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=ibm+thinkpad+600e+lcd+screen&_sacat=0&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_sop=12&_dmpt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&_odkw=IBM+tube&_osacat=0 Remember you can always connect an external monitor to your ThinkPad until your new screen arrives if you have one. The manual should also give you instructions to change out the tube if you wish to save a few more bucks and try that route. Hope this will FIX-YA! Please leave your feedback and let me know!
Boot up the laptop then click on My Computer then right click on the C Drive then click on Disk Cleanup. This will get rid of
unnecessary files, deleted files in the Recycle bin etc and free up diskspace. (tick all the boxes to remove the old files).
This process will take a long time (don't stop it) especially if you have not done this before.
When the AC adapter is plugged in, does it wiggle excessively if you try to wiggle it at the jack where it plugs into the notebook? If so, the power jack had become unsoldered from the main board. You would have to take the main board completely out to get to the solder pins, then resolder them with a LOW-WATTAGE soldering iron. If you think you were successful, lay a bead of epoxy between the jack and the main board on the three sides away from the connection hole. Let it dry for 24 hours, then put everything back together. A service maual would be useful, if you can get one.
