Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

Turned on and just get vertical lines

\015 When the thinkpad is turned on nothing appears on the screen but colored vertical lines. I checked the screen by hooking up to another monitor and it does the same. It worked fine for about two weeks that I\015\012had it and now won't display nothing but the lines. I have sound and\015\012the battery seems fine.\015

Answers :

If you have tried an external monitor to the laptop and it is still giving the same display then I think that there is something faulty with your vga or display card..Check the manufacturers website and it could be a driver issue but if not then it's time to get a new pc..unless you have the knowledge of going further..Please leave a voting for my help.Many thanks...
