Thinkpad a31 lcd problems

I have a thinkpad a31 laptop that has a pink screen when it first boots up. I goes away in a few seconds once the screen warms up. I have a second thinkpad a31 with a good lcd screen. When i changed screens and turned on the laptop the ibm logo is huge and when it boots into windows xp it has a overlapping screen which i can't correct with a different resolution setting. I also changed the invertor board along with the lcd so they still match. I don't understand what is happening. Do these have to match the onboard video as well?

Well yes BUT if it is a problem with the LCD then you would need to replace try plugging an external monitor to see if the sizes are normal if they arent then it is definately a problem with the screen resolutions.??

Ibm thinkpad A31 Windows unable to start normally. Message on blue screen indicating "unmountable_boot_volume". Also got "Kernal_data_inpage_error" message. Does this indicate hard drive failure??


No, this is a known error within Windows. Read more information on it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555302

But, if you are like me and don't like to read, just put your windows XP installation CD into the CD-ROM, boot up from the CD-ROM, DO NOT reinstall the operating system...just repair the installation and run "chkdsk /r".

Once that is done, restart the machine and it should boot up fine.

Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Hello,

Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

Thinkpad A31 been unused for 12 months. Still appears to boot into windows, plenty of hard drive activity but no video displayed on screen at all, totally blank. I am pretty sure it boots fully into...


Sometimes I have seen something like this where there actually is a harddrive error, and it just acts like it books. It would be good to run a scan of the Hard drive. With something like GWScan. The Ultimate Boot CD would be able to run this for you.

A31 won't boot


if your OS is Win XP then UR MBR has gone currupt . You will have to reload the windows or at least repair it.
1. in repair you wont lose the data but in fresh loading of OS in C drive will delete your data in My documents and at desk top.
2. if there is some important data there then first retrive it by making ur drive as slave in other PC and then do the format.
