Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook ?

My screen suddenly gets distorted.

\015 When i am normaly working with my IBM thinkpad R40 after a while or so the picture gets distorted & the system gets idle, it sometimes recovers when i refresh it. But most of the time i power off & on.\015\012I checked and replaced my Ram but same problem exists. Also a question to IBM TP users does the fan remains on all time once on ? or does it work in intervals ?\015\012\015\012When the picture gets distorted:\015\012-The hard-disk light does not flicker.\015\012-The fan's still on.\015

Answers :

Test your laptop by connecting its video ouput (base of the computer at the back) to a known working monitor. Then power on the laptop and see if the known working monitor behaves the same way your laptop's monitor does. That will narrow down the possible causes.
