Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a used IBM Thinkpad model R51 laptop. It's worked great for 2 years. Today, I was using it and suddenly, without warning (or symptoms) the screen went black. The computer didn't shut off, the screen went black. I tried turning it off and rebooting several times with no luck. The machine comes on (cuz the led lights come on, and you can hear the motor running), but the screen stays black. Does this mean the backlighting suddenly burned out? It never dimmed or even blinked prior to the "blackout".
Try to plug in a extrernal monitor and see if that works if it does your backlight went out
