I (stupidly!) stretched the monitor of my IBM/Thinkpad T43 model too far backwards and it seems to be disconnected. Is there a way I can reconnect it? I can't see how to open the junction between the unit and the monitor. Does it come apart at all?

Re: Laptop monitor disconnect
You may of broken or disconnected the ribbon cable inside the screen to the motherboard. you have to do some major work taking it apart. I would go to the manufacturer website to see if there is a how to there. Once it is apart you will see the problem.

It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop. If
the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the
power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop.
While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring
at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal
drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is
identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace
the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for
burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections,
or unseated cards.
