Question about Fujitsu Siemens AMILO D-7830 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop screen is barely readable, cannot not determine location of cursor.

I have a IBM think pad R51, I recently borrowed it out and it was returned with a dead battery. I plugged the battery chargeing adapter into the outlet and let charge for a day. When I turn on the laptop the screen is very dull, almost completely unreadable. The laptop appears to be functioning, but I cannot navigate because I cannot see the cursor. Is there a way for me to find out if the problem is the battery or the screen backlight? My Repair shop tells me Fujitsu Siemens does not supply a backlight separately for my Amilo Notebook. Is this true? If not, where can I source a supplier? Regards JAn

The first thing to check is brightness of your IBM. May be the brightness is set very low. It may sound silly and simple, but we human can overlook simple issue.

Secondly, try using another charger. Not the battery. Recently, I had problems with one of laptop same model. I formatted and reinstalled windows etc...nothing helps. Just curios, changed the charger and surprise me...It worked alright.

IBM Thinkpad R51, screen went dark. At the right screen angle, I can see some light from the windows and cursor, but very faint. At that light angle I can maneuver the mouse and click on windows, so all...


The problem
1 The LCD screen is out or
2 The invertor board behind the LCD screen is out or
3 The backlite is out

You have 2 options
1 To use an external monitor for the time or
2 get the laptop fixed by a tech shop

IBM R51 - "Registry Cannot Load"


I had the exact same problem. I basically gave up and decided to reinstall the O.S. But when I did it gave me an option to upgrade rather than install, and I found that all my programs and files were still there after. So you coulkd do that. I found out that some of the O.S. was corrupt via a virus so this was solved also.

This indicates a possible memory problem. Reseat the RAM modules and boot up, if OK then the laptop is OK.
If not then :-
If you have two RAM modules, remove both and insert one and boot up, if it is OK then repeat with the other one - this will determine which memory module is faulty.

I don't work for IBM.

ibm systemboards cost from 200 to 800USD

Contact IBM service for repairs, I recommend you let someone else do the repairs.

Might not be worth it. You be the judge.
