Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook ?

Ibm t 41 screen is blank when graphic card load is in play


Answers :

This is a common problem with IBM Thinkpad T40, T41, and T42s. They develop video issue due to over heating.
If you want a temporary solution put some pressure the mouse buttons just below the keyboard and right above the touch pad. Press firmly with your palm when you start the laptop and the display should come back on. Or hold the laptop with your four fingers underneath and thumb on the mouse pad and lift it up so that there is pressure at the point where your index & middle finger are. This will improve the contacts of the chip that is causing the graphic card to malfunction.

We fix these issues all the time. However, it is not something fixable by the end user as it needs professional repair equipment and expertise to get the job done right as it is motherboard level repair.

The cost of this repair is relatively cheap now for IBM T40/T41/T42. It should cost you roughly $80 to $120 to get it fixed (in metropolitan area, in smaller towns repair shops will rip you off). If you are quoted more, then shop around.
