T42 black screen

I have a T42 laptop and the screen periodically goes black.  If I look carefully the display is still there, but basically black.  I if I close an dopen the cover the display returns.  there does not seem to be a pattern.  sometimes I cna work for hours, sometimes I lose the display in minutes.

 

any suggesitons??

Re: T42 black screen

I've had this problem before on my t40. some times it helps if you gently smack the area above the hard drive ( i don't know why, it just works for me). You can try re-seating the video cable too.
