Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

LCD BLANK Hello, I've had my Thinkpad T30 for about two years and it worked fine but today when I went to turn it on (didn't drop it or anything) the screen won't turn on. I know the system itself is working because the lights are going but the screen is just black. Any help? Does anyone know if this is an easy fix or will it cost me an arm and a leg?
