On my ibm thinkpad 1120 i recently installed a wifi card and wifi antennas, i tucked the wifi antennas under the side of the screen and powered it on, it worked great, later on the screen start to act werid, the colors were off and there were dots appearing on the screen, i immedialty took off the screen bezel and pulled the wifi antenna out of under the screen, 2 seconds later the screen went out, it is not the graohics card because it works fine with a external mointer, it is not the inverter


Answers :

That's highly unlikely that the wifi antenna caused the problem.

It's probably the lcd itself or the lcd cable.

You can get the whole lcd complete on ebay for about $30. That's probably the best route to go, otherwise you'll waste hours troubleshooting.
