Sound like the videocard is bad or possibly a bad ram stick.Check it with an external monitor.If it shows video on it ,the card is ok.If not the videocard is bad.If it shows video, the ram may be bad or the connection to the motherboard is incomplete or the plug is bad.Also unplug the HDD then try to start it up.If the bios is readable the HDD is causing a conflict.

Rca L42phd37yx8 42' led tv blackscreen with sound wont show anything


Show a torch light on the screen (not too close) when the TV and program is running. If you can see the picture, the backlights have gone off. Anyhow, the TV needs attention by a qualified service technician.

Thinkpad T41 with XP-sp3: No sound / working fine until yesterday


Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.

I've got a second hard drive caddy for a T41 IBM thinkpad, all slotted in, but nothing is being shown on the computer


Check your pins and make sure they didn't get bent. Otherwise, you might have a bad hard drive.

T41 appears to be dead. I see the power light but


Good day sir, there are several resons why a laptop wont power up, or wont display a thing.
  1. Memory is bad so make sure to check for memory module.
  2. The battery is bad, check you battery with other similar laptop.
  3. The power supply/charger is bad.
  4. There seem to be a shorted circuit board on your laptop ground chassis. For you to test it, you should dissassemble the laptop and one by one reassemble it again.
  5. Mainboard, sad to say if everything else fails, the mainboard is the last culprit. better visit your local service center.
hope this helps, please update me if you may have any progress report on your laptop, thanks

Make sure the downloaded driver is for XP and not Vista and they are specific to your model laptop.
After downloading the driver file, when you run the file it unzips the file and copies it to your hard disk (take a note of the file folder it creates on your hard disk). Then you need to go to that folder and run the setup file and it will install the audio driver.
This also applies to all the drivers you download and wish to install.

Ibm t41 sound not working


Just to try the obvious...
The volume buttons on the laptop underneath the screen work independently to the volume controls in Windows. Have you tried pressing and holding the volume up button and then playing a sound?
