Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

IBM T30 won't boot with LCD, but will boot OK with external eonitor

\015 Water got spilled on the laptop, IBM T30. Dried and cleaned it. Now after pressing a power button it will work for 5 seconds and after that will shut itself off only when in LCD mode. If I switch it to external monitor mode it boots up fine. (Since it is not enough time to engage the external monitor with Fn+F7, I switch it with a lid close switch). Could you please give me a suggestion on what it might be? Thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

It means computer developed oxide on some contact, and this is causing a short that forces unit to shut down, laptop must be taken apart, dried properly, and eventually cleaned with circuit cleaning solution.
If problem stops when you turn to external display, then probably it is water or oxide in LCD ribbon cable connectors.
