Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
My daughter has a problen with her thinkpad. If she rests her hands on the computer areas either side of the mouse pad, the screen goes black or is so corrupt that it is unuseable.
If she reboots it, it works for a short time then corrupts again.
Any help would be much appreciated.
It's possible that this is a hardware problem, but it sounds more like a loose connection to me. Start by removing the keyboard and checking all visible connections. You should be able to see the touch pad, keyboard, and screen connections with the keyboard off, and, yes, I realize that you cannot check the keyboard connection with the keyboard off, but you can when putting it back on. For some reason I keep getting people that love to point out the obvious lately, so I'll throw that in there right off the bat. Also check the hard drive to see if it's seated properly. If the problem persists, you may need to take the cases apart and check all connections on the board.
