Re: How to connect IBM T61 to my Samsung LCD TV 40''...
If you have an s-video port you will need to buy s-video cables and a separate audio cable for sound. With HDMI you will only need 1 cable for both video and sound. Just connect your s-video cable to your s-video output ( your laptops quick reference manual should show you where your s-video jack is at ) and the other end to the back of your LCD tv video input ( consult your lcd tv manual )

If the LCD screen on your IBM laptop is going dim, chances are the backlight is breaking down. The good news is that if you don't want to spend the money to have a technician replace it, you can do it yourself. There's no need to open up the main body of the computer, but you will have to get into the screen to do the work. Here's how.
Power off your IBM and remove the battery. Remove the nine screws (three on each side) on the side of the screen. Once the screws are removed, the plastic bezel (screen guard) can be removed. Pop the bezel out, exposing all of the LCD screen. Pull the LCD screen gently away from the computer by the corner. Be mindful that the screen is still connected to the computer by a ribbon cable. Remove the tape over the ribbon cable where it connects to the screen and gently pull the cable to disconnect it. Turn the LCD facedown, and remove the piece of tape that holds the top metallic foil against the back of the LCD. Lift the metallic foil to expose the backlight. Remove the single screw at the end of it that holds it in place. Unclip the wire at the end of the backlight from the inverter (power source to the backlight), and remove it from the LCD. Replace it with the new backlight (available at any electronics store or online). Be sure the new backlight is compatible with your particular IBM model. Reassemble the computer reversing the order in which you took it apart.
i assume you've tried the fn keys and the laptop f* key that looks like an lcd/crt. if not, it may be the video settings on the new laptop, it may not support the proper resolution for the television. is this an hdmi cable?
Yes, it's highly-likely that all your "data" files on the disk-drive are intact. Any qualified computer-technician can remove the disk-drive, temporarily connect it as a "slave" drive in a computer, and copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s).
Power supply may have been hosed. Another thing to try is to plug the A/C adapter in but do NOT have a battery connected. If it powers on then there might have been a problem with the both batteries. Also be sure nothing else is connected to the computer's ports. Especially any external video devices.
