Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

Help me!!! Black screen ONLY!

\015 Help me!!! My laptop starts up and I can hear it, but there is only a black screen. I tried hooking it up to another monitor to see if the screen was dead, but nothing showed on it either. Could it be my video card and how can I tell if it is?\015

Answers :

IF you hooked another monitor to your laptop did you transfer the screen to the other monitor if so and you got nothing i would say that you had a video card problem. it may be time to get a new laptop it will cost you about 1/2 the cost of a new one to fix it.
