The most common reason of problems with backlights are the inverters, not the bulks. Check the inverter first.
The backlight are attached inside the LCD panel. In order to change the backlight you have to disasemble the LCD screen, and this is not always possible. You can find the replacement LCD panel here:

If there is one backlight bulb it should be in the bottom fo the screen, if 2 than 2 on the top one on the bottom. I want to point one thing though, if you break the seal around LCD screen that will defect picture quality, I if you are having issue with backlight there is the greater chance that the cable is broken in place where it folds when you close you laptop, rather than the bulb going out. So check the cable first if the cable is not the problem than change entire screen than just that bulb.

Ibm thinkpad audio drives G40 2384


You can get the driver from the computer manufacturer's website. If you want all drivers covered and updated, then you can install an automatic driver updater like RadarSync. You don't have to go to different websites to find the different drivers because the software will do all the work for you.

I hope this helps!

IBM G40 won't reboot


Unfortunately only few people know your problems solution but I'm happy that i can help you.

Its simply a problem of setting HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) type which can be changed using BIOS setup. I hope your laptop must have SATA but if its not working on current settings then please change it to another options available.

Surely, your system will get booted after that and furthermore you can re-install your windows again...

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.

Graphics


Graphics cards on laptops cannot be changed or upgraded. In order to do this, I believe you have to change out the screen, because graphics cards in laptops are within the screens.

No power, dead machine


I don't know if this will help in your situation, but here is how I would approach the problem.
1. Check the output of the external power supply.
2. Remove the battery, remove and reseat all of the memory cards; Try to power up again.
4. Remove the hard drive, cd drive, floppy drive and any externally connected devices; Try to power up again.
Hope this is of some help in the resolution of your problem, and have a super day!

Dark screen


Your backlight is probably burned out. It is repairable, but I recommend having a computer repair shop take care of it.
