View Full Version : Windows XP Pro not loading

Hi, 2 days ago we were working on an IBM T41 Thinkpad (our main computer), when the screen began to fade, the computer was turned off immediately via power button. When turned back on, a bright blank blue screen appeared briefly, but now it is just a dull grey screen. The cd tray works, caps lock, bluetooth can be turned on and off, as can the night light...................................HELP !!!!

I'd suggest hooking up a monitor to the vga port and see if you get anything.

You may have to hit the function key plus the key with the monitors to switch to the vga output.

Do you normally hear the welcome theme? Hearing that would suggest that Windows is loading properly but your monitor is shot.
