Question about IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook

My IBM screen goes dark after being on for several hours. It will return to normal, and then go dark again. Could this be the HDD is getting too hot? Is there a way to increase the fan speed?

Check the energy save settings and see if the monitor is set to shut off after a certain amount of time. Also if the laptop battery gets low it may start to turn off the monitor to save energy. Are you using the computer on a/c power or battery power when this happens? As far as fan controls the settings are usually in the bios but you can sometimes install software that will control the system fan. The BIOS system menu is usually available by pressing delete when the computer boots up(some computers are different button).

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Sounds like your screen has developed a problem. You wouldn't necessarily see any damage when you opened the bezel up. I would suggest you take it to a repair shop and have them test it and replace the screen if necessary

Backlighting issues on tv set (I think). Screen goes extremely dark after about 30 min. of viewing. Does not return to orginial brightness unless unit is left off for a long period of time


Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics

capacitors are most likely to blame here, there are several that most likely are on the power board and are blown if you get them replaced the tv will function normally, the heat can come from the transformer since it is not getting smooth power from the capacitors. it is working very hard to dump the spikes in the electricity. I ups backup power supply rated for the tv's wattage will help smooth power and protect your investment.

Video display driver


It's not your driver. It's the video cable from the computer to the monitor.

Move it around at both ends and your colour will return to normal.

Either replace the cable or find where it is happy and then hold it in that position with something.

It's a common fault to all monitor cables..and nearly always the red wire.
