Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2897 Notebook
My R40's 15" TFT display has gone dark and no amount of rebooting and jiggling the hinges will help. I'm not clear whether the LCD panel or the converter (inverter?) has died. Or both. Searching eBay, it seems there are lots of people willing to sell me a new LCD for $100 or more. Is that a good deal? I usually have the laptop in its doc at home and my office, but on occasion I do need the built-in screen. Thanks!
Since a used R40 will be in the neighborhood of $300, a $100 or less for the screen might not be too bad of a price. Without the screen, you have a $330 paper weight. With the replacement screen, you have a working computer. And that would cost you $200 less than buying a replacement R40.
Hopefully this line of thought will help you make the decision.
