It's possible that you damaged the screen, but it's more likely that you knocked a connection loose. Check the screen connections on the back of the screen, screen to inverter, and screen to motherboard. In order to get to the connections you will need to remove the screen bezel or plastic piece around the screen. The bezel has screws hidden under small black sticky tabs, once the screws are removed,then the bezel snaps off. Be careful not to break the bezel at the corners. Once the bezel is off, then you will see the screws on the side that hold the screen. If the connections are good, then I'm afraid you damaged the screen.

I CONNECTED MY IBM R51 TO MY TV FOR THE FIRST TIME. I COULD ONLY SEE THE INFO ON MY TV NOT MY COMPUTER. WHEN I TOOK MY COMPUTER OFF THE TV MY COMPUTER WENT BLACK AND I DONT KNOW WHAT WENT WRONG IT WAS...


Hi you need to re-carry out the procedure you used to switch the display in the first place, i.e. usually you press Fn and F4 or F8 to switch to an external display then again to switch back, hope this helps.

SCREEN SUDDENLY WENT DIM


One of 2 things happened....
1) You Blew the Power Inverter... The Power inverter is a thin rectangular circuit board that plugs into the display panel cable and also powers the LCD Bulb.. If This Part Fails - You Lose Light to the Display even though the display will still be on and viewable against a bright light....

2) The LCD Bulb is Faulty... When the LCD Bulb Fails it will typically give pre-warning signs- though not always.... It will give signs like the whole screen has a light orange or pinkish tone to it, but eventually it will blow and no light at all to the Display Panel....

Both Of These Are Repairable....

The Power Inverter Can Be Purchased Off of Ebay, For Around $15 to $30

The LCD Bulb Itself is also Replaceable.. Though It is a Job Only to Be Performed By An Experienced Laptop Tech... Bulbs as well can be bought off of ebay for a few bucks..

Double display with my IBM think pad T43


have you tried Function F7/F8 ?
Make sure that your display driver is installed correctly.
I had the same Laptop as you did and was able to have dual monitor.
Also check your Display driver in your control panel and make sure it set to dual monitor.

T41 IBM thinkpad monitor goes off


Saw exactly the same think on another t41 i was trying to fix. If it was moved at all screen went off.

Turned out it was corrosion on the motherboard that was causing the problem.

Has it been liquid damaged or got damp in the past?
