    Does the laptop appear to boot up and the hard disk LED flash? Can you see a dim Windows on the screen when you view it at a sharp angle?

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 goes to blank screen at random intervals.


Hello you just have to upgrade the driver for the graphic card.

You can also use windows update

Visit lenovo here:

Or use the autodetect function

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-62928

If it not helps with the driver your display has a defect
its not a easy task to change the display.
The local computer repair shop should be able to help you with that.

Good luck

Forgot cmos password after cearing cmos not able to boot from harddisk. Pls assist me how to remove cmos password of ibm T60 laptop


I just helped a friend out with this exact issue on the same notebook. Here is the instructions (step by step...well 4 steps) that worked perfectly. What you are doing is using a backdoor password set up by IBM/Lenovo.

Turn on your Thinkpad T60 computer.

  • Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.


  • Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.


  • Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.

  • Hope this helps...

    How do i reboot my thinkpad t60 ?


    If this is a serious question, then the answer depends upon the version of Windows you are using.
    Usually, you simply click on the Start Button in the lower left corner of your monitor/screen, then look for options to Shut Down, or Shut Down and Restart.
    Failing to find those items you can always use CTRL+ALT+DEL and when the result of that comes up, look for Restart as an option.
    Best thing you can do is to find the Help options and read what Microsoft has written about controlling Windows. Find their Tutorial and spend some time reading and following it.

    Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.

    In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.

    If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.

    Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


    Hello Karthik,
    This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

    Thank you!
