Re: Black screen on IBM Thinkpad T42

Hi

If the main screen or secondary display screen is simply nothing that the integrated video chipset for laptop died (trumpet sound ... yes it has had its day ....).

The remedy to repair the attention but whether it's worth it, if the computer is still under warranty.

To get the photos, open the computer, remove the hard disk, the plug on an adapter that supports 2.5-inch disk (usually it is a USB device) and then plug in a USB therefore pc fixed or mobile, make reconnection disk on the system and then ..the magic copy, paste.
