Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook ?

Thinkpad T61 Display Problem

\015 I have a Thinkpad T61. I bumped the computer and lost the bottom right hand corner of the display although the functionality of the computer was not affected. Is the LCD repairable or do I need a new display?\015

Answers :

LCDs are not repairable, it is something you need to replace when defective. They also happen to be very very expensive to replace.

Is the screen cracked at all? cause sometimes when laptops get bumped, it is actually just the lcd cable inside the laptop that came a little loose and isn't making a full connection. If the screen isn't cracked or anything I would at least look into a possible loose cable first If you are not comfortable taking the laptop apart, I would bring it to a computer shop and have them take a look at it as some laptops can be complicated to open up. They shouldn't charge you more than about $40 to take a look at the lcd cable, they are normally pretty quick to get at. It is worth a shot as lcds typically range from $400 - $1000 and to have someone install it would be probably another $50-$100

hope this helps a little
