More likely than a cracked screen was a bad connector. Having a band (vertical or horizontal) of random lines and colrs is typical of a bad connector. Odd as it may sound, you can try to diagnose whether this is really the case by squeezing carefully (not too hard) around the edges of the screen. On many different models you will find that when you get to a certain spot and squeeze lightly the problem will change or even disappear temporarily. For the more adventruous you can also try lightly twisting the casing. I've had this work on dozens of machines with similar symptoms.

My ibm T30 thinkpad screen is not working


Hi there,
It's hard to say, but if I understood correctly, your screen still functions as long as it does not stay on for a long time.
There are three possibilities
1- Video card (If you have an external monitor, plug it in and see if the same issue occurs. If so, the video card is the issue)
2- The flat cable which carries the signal from the video card to the LCD screen. (Does moving lid only (screen) causes it to behave differently? (If so, it may be the flat cable)
3- The LCD itself (In case none of the above apply)

Press power button...no logo no post.just some out of focus color lines..then some horizontal flashing white lines..the battery light on the bottom of the screen is flashing and no computer boot or...


Dear user,
Good day! It seems that your laptop has hardware problem... Maybe the inverter, your LCD screen, VGA, BIOS, or even motherboard. I suggest for you to go to your nearest computer technician to diagnose it manually.

Colored lines appearing from bottom to top of the screen.


the LCD is a very complicating device for all CP. you may check it by disassemble it to it's LCD and connect the ribbon wire/flex of the LCD firmly... but this problem is best to replace it with a new LCD... very complicated device indeed

My T30 turns on but the screen doesnt work?


Try to attach EXTERNAL MONITOR to check if you have display from External Display and to confirm that your Laptop System is still working. If you got display from external monitor, therefore you have a faulty LCD / Inverter (gives your LCD a back-light)

Turned on and just get vertical lines


if you have tried an external monitor to the laptop and it is still giving the same display then I think that there is something faulty with your vga or display card..Check the manufacturers website and it could be a driver issue but if not then it's time to get a new pc..unless you have the knowledge of going further..Please leave a voting for my help.Many thanks...

Visual problem with laptop screen


Can you connect your laptop into another computer screen? See if that works. If so, then your screen is going bad. I would not recommend replacing the screen unless you are a harware expert. If the lines are still there try booting into VGA mode by pressing F8 at first startup. You might have a failing video card or corrupt drivers.
