    Does the hard disk spin up? Does the hard disk LED light flash? Does the laptop appear to boot up but you can't see an image on the LCD screen?

Unplug the power cord and pop the battery out for about twenty minutes and reinsert the battery and plug in the power cord and push the power button.

My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.


Try these steps:

1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
3. Attach battery and plug into wall
4. Power "ON" as normal

If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

A blank screen on ibm thinkpad R51


your wires connecting from your laptop hardware to your display is messed up and is only "re-connected" and "hot-wired" by your action of closing/opening the lid.... use your warranty... your problem is when your warranty is expired so be glad this happened when you still have warranty

Hi...there,

It's seems your Thinkpad need a new inverter, due to a backlight inverter burnt out. Get a new one or repaired it. Good lucks!
