The half moon usually means the computer is in SLEEP MODE. Normally, pressing the spacebar will wake the computer up but I have noticed that sometimes, the computer can get "stuck" in sleep mode. If that is the case, you can hold the power button down (until the power turns off and the moon disappears). Wait a few seconds then hit the power button again to turn the laptop back on.

Why is moon not full all the time in the night sky


The sun lights up half of the moon. Depending on where the moon is in its orbit around the earth, we see anywhere from all of the lit half (full moon) to none of it (new moon).

What is the meaning of thinkpad?


The meaning? There is no implicit meaning behind the term thinkpad, it was a made up term by IBM for their laptops. The ThinkPad name itself was inspired by leather-bound pocket notepads issued to all IBM employees with the corporate motto 'Think' embossed on the cover. The combination of Think and NotePad lead to the name ThinkPad. IBM's corporate naming team was initially against using the ThinkPad name since all previous IBM computers were referred to by model numbers rather than names. However, the popularity of the ThinkPad brand with the press convinced IBM to retain the name.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

try accessing BIOS window, if still half screen means its a hardware issue, you need to call IBM thinkline 1-800-426-7378, but if your getting the whole screen, means its a driver issue.

You need to check the type number on the service pad at the bottom of the laptop, if you cannot find the type, download both vidoe drivers, the wrong one will just not work.
