I am afraid you are correct, your laptop screen is not usable and unless you’re a trained professional I do not recommend trying to repair the monitor itself. In fact, to do so would be rather dangerous to your own well being, but you do not have to throw your ThinkPad away. You could continue to use it with the external monitor or you could send it into Dell and pay them for a replacement. Look around though, there are probably other people who could provide this service for less, beause large corporations usually charge you more than necessary.

Need OS for Thinkpad iseries laptop

welcome to fixya

to be honest you can not make a OS disk you will have to ask around and see if anyone you know has a windows 2000 disk and try to install theres in your laptop or go to a store and buy a OS it is not cheap to buy so i would suggest to see if anyone you know has a windows 2000 or any windows disk for you to install it

and if you go somewhere and have them do it wil cost you a few bucks

hope this helps you out

Iseries thinkpad

try hooking it to an external monitor and see if it works.If it does then you need to check which part is bad.Possible defective parts in order of the cheapest is :inverter card,then LCD Cable,then LCD Display,then system board.If it does not work with external monitor then try drivers or system board because the video is built into the board.If all else fails I will buy it from you if the price is right.
