Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Laptop
Everytime i turn on my laptop the screen stays black it happended when i was just openning pinnacle studio 12 and then the screen went black it turns on but with black screen any help?
Take out your battery and hold down the power button for 60secs... This will release any excess charge built up in the machine.Put the power back on but without the battery,just plug the adapter and if it turns on then you know what's wrong.You need a new battery.Make your laptop light.Make sure you don't have anything attached to the Laptop and then restart. It could also be your hardware [motherboard,graphics card,screen] problem,if you can,try tightening the screen connection from inside. If that also doesn't solve the problem then you need to go to the company service center.

Had the same problem with mine: Actually the screen did work, however backlight did not, so it was very dim. It turned out to be a hardware problem. I took off the display and looked inside (you can find a video showing how to do this on youtube: just google for "S10-2 open case"). It turned out that the connector on the rear side of the LCD needed reseating. That was all :-).

Reboot with cd or get in to the bios and check startup settings.. sounds like the program has changed the settings.. do you know how to get in to BIOS,, or seek help from nearby pc store...
