Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

T40 hangs after boot up. Sometimes does not show anything on boot

\015 My T40 thinkpad either does not turn on at all or after a few knocks boots and hangs anywhere from 1 to 20 minutes after boot up. The screen often flickers before it hangs. Seems to be a loose connection in the lower left corner? Knocking on the part makes the computer hang sooner. Please help.\015
