IBM Thinkpad T30 2366

I have a blank screen with the power light on. The computer will not respond at all. It will not even turn off. I have tried holding down the power button with no results. Any ideas would be appreciated.

To turn it off, you will need to unplug it and take the battery out. This could be a battery problem, try starting the machine without the battery, AC only. If this doesn't work. Then I'm afraid the problem is most likely with the motherboard. Take it in for a professional diagnostic. They will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and whether it's a replaceable component.

Screen stays blank when turned on


take your computer to your dealer and send it for repair.

The problem is most likely the inverter for the screen.
actually to see if that is the problem you can try to put bright light to the screen and see if you barely see the picture.

Blank Screen


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.

WHEN I INSERT A BLANK CD TO EXPORT,I GET NO RESPONSE ON MY SCREEN


Some quick questions, do you have the correct drivers, does the computer register the cd drive as installed (if so can you play a cd), and is the computer software set to handle/register a blank cd? answer these and you may very well fix the problem.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.


Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

Try removing and reseating your CPU, video cable and or memory. If nothing stills hapens, your video card or chip may have gone bad. Please let me know if this works.
