Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook ?

Dim LCD with a IBM R51

\015 I tried replacing the LCD, LCD cable and the LCD inverter. All of which did not fix the problem. I as well can see the image on the screen with a bright light on it. I believe that the only other possible replacement can be replacing the planar (motherboard) Other that that does anyone have any idea what the problem can be? Thanks\015

Answers :

Try updating your video driver. Also, try connecting your machine to external monitor and see if there's a display if not i then confirmed that you planar is faulty.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
