Re: ibm laptop

I would suggest changing the inverter first as it it the simplest and cheapest solution. inverters for the thinkpad can be picked up on eBay for a couple of ponds.

DVI-B output became green. How can I fix this?

Green output from the dvi-b would mean the motherboard is bad cause the connector is directly connected to the motherboard. Motherboard would need to be replaced.

You already tried the cable on another computer and it worked and that would have been the other step to verify the cable. was working.

The display screen has turned black

When you connected the external monitor thto the laptop did it display?

If so then you have to reset the monitor port. Hold down the function key and find the FKEY that shows a picture of a monitor. Press that until you get the laptop screen back.

Typical use is:
  • 1 press = external monitor
  • 2 presses = laptop and dual monitor
  • 3 presses = just the laptop screen
