Not sure what model you have from the description.

In any case reinstalling the video drivers should do the trick.

Select your model at the following link.

3-Tap the blue Access IBM button at the top of the keyboard. Click the "Access BIOS" button when the "Rescue and Recovery" menu appears.
4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one. Press Enter.7-Press "Escape" and then highlight "Restart" and press F5. Navigate to "Save changes and Restart" and press Enter.

    Once I have logged on and I am working on one of the various programs the start menu disappears. The only way that I can get the start menu back is to restart the computer and then it disappears again....

    This is not a problem with your T40.

    This is a configurable options in Windows.

    You can program the start menu to disappear and reappear when you bring the mouse in close proximity to the area where your start menu has been configured to appear, either on the bottom, left, right, or top of the desktop and which feature can be reconfigured by left clicking on the initial appearance or a subsequent appearance of the start menu and indicating your preference.

    It's seems your Thinkpad need a new inverter, due to a backlight inverter burnt out. Get a new one or repaired it. Good lucks!
