Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an older IBM Thinkpad. For a couple days the screen flickered like a light bulb dying and then went out completely. Is this done? You can see screen a few seconds during boot up but the it goes black.Just wondering if there was a easy fix or to just not bother at all. Thanks.
Try pressing F8 at boot up see if the safe mode menu comes in. If it does boot into safe mode and once in windows change the screen properties i.e uninstall as when you reboot in normal mode the windows will recognize the monitor and install drivers for it. If you cannot see the sub menu after pressing F8 then there is possibly a power supply to the monitor problem or the monitor is faulty. You can get reconditioned units for this laptop will try eBay first. Check out the prices then decide to proceed or replace.
