Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook ?

Display Screen Went Dark...

\015 I was using my laptop one morning when my15 month old son tripped on the power cord and pulled it out of the back of my computer. Since then, the screen has been darkened, but you can see the programs, just not enough to use them without killing your eyes. Every time I close the lid or shut down the laptop, then either open it or turn it back on, the color is back briefly, then goes dark again. Please help!!! This laptop is my only source to communication with the outside world during the day, which helps me keep my sanity!! Thanks!!\015

Answers :

This would seem like the power supply is broken and the computer is working off the battery or the setting need to be changed in power management. Whenever you disconnect the power supply and work form the battery, as power saving mode, windows will dim the back light to the display. First check if the power supply is charging the battery and then check your settings in the following:\015\012Start menu -  Programs - IBM - Battery MaxiMiser Wizard. Follow the steps until you get to the LDC display level. You may need to increase that.
