Can you plug in an external monitor? If the problem persists on the external monitor it may be a hardware fault, heat problem or a driver issue. If the problem is only with the internal LCD then possibly the cable between the laptop and the LCD is faulty or the LCD is damaged somehow.

Tapping the edges to "fix" the issue does suggest ath hardware fault though.

Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

How do i switch to external monitor


Virtually all IBM and Lenovo ThinkPad and ThinkCenter laptops allow you to hook up an additional monitor or projector to the computer. When you add an external monitor or projector to your notebook, you can choose to view the display on the computer, on the external device, or on both the laptop and the external monitor or projector at the same time. Toggling between viewing devices is as simple as pressing a couple of keys on the keyboard.

Shut down the laptop. Plug the VGA monitor cable from the external monitor or projector into the blue VGA port on the back of the computer. Turn on the external monitor or projector first, and then the Lenovo laptop. Allow the notebook to boot into Windows normally. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys at the same time to switch the display from the laptop to the external monitor or projector. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to enable the display on both the laptop and the external display device. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to display screen contents only on the laptop LCD. choose support you need http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54305.html http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4YQHUC.html enable tv out on thinkpad http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58625

HP keyboard, How do you turn off the "fn" key? Thanks.


Your digital lock is activated.

To solve this:

"It all depends on the model you have".

Just start at solution "1" and work your way down to "3", If it is a Thinkpad use it only.

1. Simply press the FN (F Lock) and hold a few seconds.
or
2. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Num lock. (most common for HP)
or
3. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Shift + Num lock.

For IBM Thinkpad only, you must press Shift + Scroll Lock + Num lock.

My Dell 1521 was working perfectly until this morning. When I tried starting it later today, the LCD screen no longer worked. The top third of the screen is fine. The bottom two thirds are covered by lines...


Your LCD has either gone bad or the ribbon needs to be reseated.

Carefully pry the plastic cover that runs parallel with your LCD. You will see the ribbon to the monitor. Press the connector down and make sure it didn't come loose.

Restart Windows.

If that doesn't work, then you will need to replace the LCD screen. You will not have to replace your lid...just the LCD. That should save you some money.

Hope this helps.

I have IBM 300pl. And it has strange fan problem.


A fan that no longer works will cause a heat problem. While it may not cause a complete failure, it can cause some strange things to start happening. Your best best is to shut the PC down and remove the cover. Restart the PC an determine which fan(s) has stopped working.

At this point, you can either 1) contact IBM for a replacement fan or 2) remove the fan yourself and google the name and model number of the fan to find a direct replacement and either order online or 3) visit a local PC repair shop to buy a replacement fan that matches the defective one.

Buying direct from IBM will probably cost the most, but will be the exact type needed for your PC. Buying locally will probably be cheaper and faster, but may not be an exact replacement unless it is the same model, etc.

When calling IBM you'll need the computer model, serial number and any other identifying numbers on it for them to help you out.

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

My screen always goes white


Well a white screen is not good. From your description it sounds like your FPD is about to die. The Display LCD panel begins to deteriorate or die after a prolong period of time. Due to the way they were assembled or used abusively(meaning not giving the LCD time to relax = aka turn off and cool).

NOt ALL do this, it all depends on use.

A possible solution would be to make sure all cables are fitted properly inside and out.
If you have working replacement parts, you might be able swap parts.

What is going to happen is --> its going to intermitten itself then finally when the bus(wire set) on the panel dies it will form an unviewable picture, possibly a nebula effect.
