Having problems with your IBM PC Laptops ?

I put a new screen in my ibm thinkpad r51 and the screen is still black and i change my inverter board too can you help me

Answers :

Do these steps just to be sure:

Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and turn on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

Also turn on the laptop with just the ac adapter hooked up.

Take out the hard drive and also the cd rom out and turn on the laptop and see if you get video.

Also since you went ahead and replaced the screen, make sure the cable that goes from back of the LCD is plugged in as well as the rest of the cable that goes into the motherboard and also make sure the white connector from the screen is plugged into the inverter.

If after you do all of these steps you still dont get any video then your motherboard is the culprit.
