is there a dark display when you expose your laptop's monitor to light ? ... if yes check out contrast and brightness buttons ,,, if didn't work the main problem could with the monitor's inverter or the monitor leds ... must be replaced ... if there is no dark display could one of many : 1- check the rams (try another ram to test ) 2- check the monitor's cable which connected to the main board 3- check the cpu 4- if nothing of above worked replace the main board ... give feed back if you can ,,,
If the laptop is turning on then try plugging in the laptop to an external monitor and see if you get anything on the screen. If the laptop works normally with the external monitor then you will need the screen replaced . If the laptop still shows nothing on the external monitor then you will need to repair your laptop.
If the invertor was faulty you would get a picture on the external monitor, assuming that the external monitor and the laptop was configured to work. Check the Fn key and F5 at the same time. That should switch between internal/ external or both displays.
Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.
First, confirm that it is the screen itself. Connect the video output to a known working monitor and then power on your Thinkpad. if the known working monitor behaves the same way you can rule out the laptop's monitor as the source of the problem. This may be the BGA, Ball Grid Assembly, leadless soldering problem related to video chips on the motherboard, but first test the monitors.
