Re: T61 Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M.. garbled display problem!

Ehhh, I've been as persistant as I possibly can to get this resovled.  I'm currently on hold with a Technician who is getting their Supervisor to check to see if they have any replacement boards in stock.  The Technician informed me that they don't have any in the U.S. and that it would most likely be 5-7 business days before one was in stock!!  I told her that was unacceptable because I literally do ALL my business from my laptop and I cannot take 1 1/2 weeks off of work.  I don't have a spare computer to work off of to upload my backup to....This isn't looking too good.  I'll post an update once I have one.............

Happened to me today... drats.

 

Laptop on working as usual then screen suddenly becomes dark with interlocking lines, two across and some vertical.

 

Rebooted, same screen, but it's clear that Windows is still functional.... added a spare monitor and from there you can see the screen but it's a horrible mess.

All my work is on there with only a smidgen of a backup; this is a DISASTER, particularly as I am not in the United States.

 

HELP!!!!!

you need to get it repaired, there is not much other people can do for you. Also you did not ask any questions or request any particular type of assistance, so exactly what sort of response are you after?

Thanks for the response, Lead.

 

I really hoped someone would tell me what challenges there would be as I am not in the US at the moment?

Would they send me a shipping box here, etc?

Lenovo can't ship your laptop across international borders unless there is prior arrangements. What machine model/type is your thinkpad? xxxx-xxx

Bourgy,

 

If you have a T61 system, that is exhibiting the symptoms of garbled display while in BIOS or the OS, and whether on internal or external video, then please call support.   They should be able to help you.

 

Warranty repair will depend on the Model type - like 6459 or 7662, etc vs the country that you are in.

 

Here is the page where you can check what countries can provide warranty service for your particular system model type - just enter it on that page and ensure your country is listed.  If not, you may need to call the support number for the nearest country where coverage is available, and you may be responsible for shipping in that case.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
