With a multimeter verify if you have power in inverter, if not, try to connect the inverter to another power supply for testing.

I replaced the CCFL bulb, switched the unit on and it turned off after 5 seconds

If you have not changed the inverter that was actually best to try first as it is easier. So change the inverter or try a spare.

good luck

My ibm thinkpad 2373 type have audio problem

restart your PC. then try it again. If there are still problems, install the audio drivers provided in the links:
chipset driver-install first:
sound driver itself:
now you should be done

you might also want to try these downloads:

first install this:

then try these in the same order(no.3 or 4 must work) (5 is the best!!!):
5.-the best one:

afterwards you can check for newer(updated) drivers this way:
Start menu=> control panel=> performance and maintenance=> system=> hardware=> device manager=> sound video and game controllers=> [the name of your soundcard driver] => driver=> update driver +enable to check online(at win support site)
Or start windows update, choose CUSTOM and look into the Optional updates/ hardware(or devices or drivers?)

RATE THIS fixya, thank you
