Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
First, the simple things need to be checked. Is the power supply line, from the wall socket to the computer input socket, in good condition. Best test is to try it on a known working Thinkpad or with a multimeter if one is handy.
Second, connect to an outside monitor to rule out faulty laptop monitor. If the known working monitor paired with the R51 works perfectly then you know it is your screen.
Third, does moving or flexing the computer by its base when running exacerbate the problem?
That will get some preliminary data.
