Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Screen wont start up . but power on .ibm thinkpad

Answers :

  1. Try an external monitor
If it works on the external then you have a problem with either
  • LCD panel
  • \015\012
  • backlight
  • \015\012
  • inverter
  • \015\012
  • loose connection
If it doesn't work on the external you have a motherboard problem
Your power supply will need to be replaced, this can be costly so shop around carefully.
