My IBM G40

Last week there were a couple of times when the screen started to have little squares on it. Now when I try to boot up my pc it will either bring up my sign allowing me to sign on and then show the little squares, or simply beep at me in mutiple forms about three second apart.

Screen won't turn on...think I need new motherboard...is it worth it?


Try booting into "safe mode" before you do any repairs on it.

Start your computer and hit F8 every second until the boot menu comes up. When it does select "Start in safe mode". If it starts up and you can see your desktop (it might look a little bloated), then you just need to update your video card driver because it somehow got corrupted.

Twenty plus vertical lines in my IBM G40 monitor is there any solutions to clear those lines?


Hi there.
If the line appear from the moment you switch on your Laptop then your screen has gone faulty and will need to be replaced. Other option would be to use external screen.

There are a couple of quick fixes you can do.

First, boot into Safe Mode (Repeatedly tap the F8 key while the system is booting, before the windows logo appears) A Menu will pop up, press Boot Into Safe Mode. From there you can try a System Restore to a known good date.

System Restore - Click Start -> Control Panel -> On the top right, type "System Restore" without the quotes. Click on "Restore system files and settings from a restore point". You can choose the recommended restore or a specific date.

The other option is to boot into "Last Known Good Configuration". To do this, use the F8 trick again while booting, but instead of Safe Mode choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

Please note that either of these run a risk of some data being lost from the time the restore point was made. You "shouldn't" lose anything but just want to make you aware.

If this helps, please give a positive rating.

My pc keeps on restarting after loading the xp screen


Disconnect any new devices you may have recently added and boot the PC.

As its booting press the F8 key several times, this should bring up several boot options. Choose "Safe Mode" .

This will bring up windows in a stripped down form, once complete click on start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore (This is for XP, vista and win7 are a little different)

Restore to a date prior to when all the problems started.

This is the IBM symbol for "it's not working."
You are not booting correctly and the computer is telling you so.

I'm thinking you could go into setup and restore the default (I can't remember right now how to get into the CMOS setup, but it might be pressing F2 or F12 or Del.
If you can get there and you have the choice of setting the default configuration, do that.

Otherwise you're looking at a hardware problem.

First try to do monitor self test.Disconnected the blue cable VGA or white colour connector from monitor to the computer. Turn on the monitor and check if you are able to see colours or line on the monitor.Indicating self test monitor is working fine. If you are using Video card on computer connect monitor directly to onboard video and check. Good Luck.

IBM G40 won't reboot


Unfortunately only few people know your problems solution but I'm happy that i can help you.

Its simply a problem of setting HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) type which can be changed using BIOS setup. I hope your laptop must have SATA but if its not working on current settings then please change it to another options available.

Surely, your system will get booted after that and furthermore you can re-install your windows again...

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.
