Question about IBM ThinkPad 380ED
I,d assume its an actual Monitor panel Fault. if the laptop is as the above specification. it,s quite old. therefore i,d suspect the tft ( screens ) Inverter Board is overheating, or The cfl ( laptop screen tube ) is on it,s way out. A new or replacement screen may solve this. But before you spend any money as screens can go from £80+ Or $160. You may have a motherboard component overheating, and shutting the display panels voltage down. unfortunately when these get to a certain age, you have to ask yourself, if it,s worth spending money on. When you can pick up a good second hand laptop cheap enough.
Hope this points you in the right direction.
