Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Motherboard - 42W7697
Not sure, but the inverter might be bad. Here's a site that explains how to check one:
It sure sounds like the power supply is getting loaded down when the inverter is plugged in, and I would concentrate on that item.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I think you may find it is the Inverter that is faulty, try replacing that unit and most likely your problem will be resolved.
When you plug it all in and the PC shuts down, that is because the special protection circuitry in the Power supply, is detecting a "Problem" (Usually a short circuit or a too large a current draw) and it shuts the system down. So this points to the Inverter, or maybe the backlight.
To prove your video card see if you can get the laptop to work on an external monitor with NO LCD inverter connected. If it is OKI, this then proves your actual Video Card, and more points to the LCD external drive.
