Thinkpad T61 Display Problem

I have a Thinkpad T61. I bumped the computer and lost the bottom right hand corner of the display although the functionality of the computer was not affected. Is the LCD repairable or do I need a new display?

LCDs are not repairable, it is something you need to replace when defective. They also happen to be very very expensive to replace.

Is the screen cracked at all? cause sometimes when laptops get bumped, it is actually just the lcd cable inside the laptop that came a little loose and isn't making a full connection. If the screen isn't cracked or anything I would at least look into a possible loose cable first If you are not comfortable taking the laptop apart, I would bring it to a computer shop and have them take a look at it as some laptops can be complicated to open up. They shouldn't charge you more than about $40 to take a look at the lcd cable, they are normally pretty quick to get at. It is worth a shot as lcds typically range from $400 - $1000 and to have someone install it would be probably another $50-$100

hope this helps a little

I'm having a Lenovo T61 Thinkpad. All of a sudden my laptop keeps turning black. I keep getting the error message that display driver stopped working but recovered successfully but this may not always be...


Hi. I think you have uninstall your display driver and download the updated drivers on the Lenovo driver support website.

Go to this website and download the video driver for your laptop: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=/productselection/landingpages/downloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo
just make sure that you choose the correct or corresponding operating system that you have on your laptop (e.g XP, VISTA or Windows 7)

After downloading the video driver install it on your laptop then restart you computer. Goodluck!

Monitor's display is shifted up and right so that there is just black space to the left and all along the bottom whereby cutting off the display. cannot see bottom menu bar.


One of the buttons on the front of you monitor (bottom right hand corner of the bezel) is a menu button. Press that then using the the arrows up and down buttons go the the horizontal and vertical positioning option. Once chosen move the display as desired.

You could also press the Auto (config) button, that may do the same for you.

Reinstall the drivers from driver CD & install all the drivers properly and let the system itself install them. It will reboot several times.

My t61 just wouldn't turn on, so we replaced the hard drive, didn't have the operating system so ran linux on it. Now I cannot turn it on again. whats up you think? Its 2 years old.


T61 usually has a 3 year global warranty, if you had the hard disk replace from the Lenovo service center itself they are supposed to be giving the operating system along with the Hard disk.

1. do you get any display on the screen thinkpad logo?
if yes your Hard disk and other hardware devices are functioning properly.all you need to do is reload the linux again.
if you are not getting any display, you have a memory (RAM) or a hard disk problem. which needs a replacement

Green flickering squares when i turn on my laptop


Something's wrong with the display driver or the display card. You can try opening up the T61. The contact on the display chip or the display connector is probably corroded. Try pressing them a bit (not to hard). if it's the display connector, try removing it and placing it back. I've had this problem before with some other notebook. It's ok when in safe mode because safe mode doesn't use the higher display functions.

Lenovo T61 - When I go to Control Panel and select Display, all I get is Themes tab. How do I restore the other display tabs?


In Windows Vista you right-click the desktop background, and select Personalize...

Select Display Settings to open the Display Settings window...

To change the appearance of the control panel...

When you first open the control panel, on the left side off the pane click Classic View to revert to the older style of the panel.
