In addition to the Inverter (which is the power supply for the backlight) the backlight itself often fails (I've only seen one Inverter failure out of about 30 systems I've repaired with this problem, the lamp itself is first suspect). This is a job for someone that has a backgound is doing this type of repair. Backlight is cheap, 10 - 20 bucks, but if the display gets broke in the process the cost can easly be as much as a new laptop. To pay someone else to do it is 100 to 150 if you look around.

Sounds like its either going to be a bad display or the inverter underneath the display is not providing enough power to the display to light up properly. Only way to troubleshoot it is to swap out the inverter and/or the inverter to designate the exact problem.

Connect external monitor to laptop - how do you do this - ie which keys to press to convert it over to the external screen once connected?


Almost all laptops, especially those made within the last few years, have the ability to connect an external display, such as a CRT monitor, flat panel display, or Projector, and have the display sent to that device instead of to the laptop display.
Connect the monitor, flat panel, or projector to the laptop's 15-pin video connection on the back of the computer as shown to the right. Once connected, your laptop may automatically switch to the new external display or you may be required to press a sequence of keys in order to switch from the laptop to the external display.
The key sequence can vary depending on laptop, however is often either: Fn + F3, F4, F5, F8, or F9. This means if you were fore example to press and hold Fn + F3 at the same time it'd switch between your laptop display to your external display. The function key will often be labeled as CRT/LCD or have a picture of a monitor on the key or close to the key. Unfortunately, the keys pressed to switch displays is dependent on the model and manufacturer of the laptop. If none of the above key sequences work, consult your laptop documentation or consult your laptop manufacturer.
Some laptops also have the ability to have the display on both the laptop and external display or a single display at a time. Laptops with this ability can switch between these modes by continuing to press the same function keys until in the mode the user wants

No display on the monitor.


1) Ensure your computer is actually starting up.
2) There is a Fn -Special function combo that will switch the display from your LCD monitor to an external monitor. Try hitting that key combo several times to see if the display has been mistakenly sent to the external monitor.
3) Hook up an external monitor and hit the key combo to send the display to it. If this doesn't work, then you probably have a video/motherboard problem.

Doors lock themselves when manually locked with key in ignition but if key is removed it doesn't do it. No lock function on power locks only unlock function works


Sounds like the switch is bad. Try passenger side lock button or keyfob lock. If they work and not driver side, then it's the switch in the doorpanel. If none work to lock, but all will unlock, then it's probably the little lock motor inside driver door.

Connect laptop to external lcd monitor


This laptop has a blue VGA port. Plug your monitor into it. You might have to adjust the BIOS to recognize the external device.
Once connected, your laptop may automatically switch to the new external display or you may be required to press a sequence of keys in order to switch from the laptop to the external display. The key sequence can vary depending on laptop, however is often either: Fn + F3, F4, F5,F8, or F9.

Some laptops also have the ability to have the display on both the laptop and external display and/or one or the other at a single time. Laptops with this ability can switch between these modes by continuing to press the same function keys until in the mode the user wants.

How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p


Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
Notes:
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

Screen is black..will not display anything. Any


You provided very little information, so I'll try to answer:
I assume you turned on the comptuer and it seems to be working-you didn't say.
I assume it used to display something-you didn't say.
Hook it up to an external monitor. Can you see something? If so, one of two things are wrong: Your LCD screen has gone bad OR you need to hit the Fn/Special function key combo that moves the display from your LCD to an external monitor.
If none of these solves the problem, then your video card has gone south on you.

External montior is blank


Are you sure the laptop is powering up?
Do you hear the laptop boot up and the hard drive spinning and the power LED is on when you connected the external monitor?
The monitor must be powered up before the laptop for the video info to switch video port automatically.
If the external monitor is blank then you can't make it work, your video card is faulty and it is not possible to replace as it is built-in on the motherboard. You could replace the motherboard but this may not be a cost effective solution,
