I have a Thinkpad 760EL and it seems to have a couple problems (not surprising, I got it for $5!). Anyhow, hopefully someone here can help me out with the problems or at least help my identify them.
Problem 1: The Screen seems to have some sort of problem with displaying pictures as a desktop background. The screen is always black (though every icon, application, etc, shows up perfect). When I was checking the disk for errors, I noticed odd lines on the screen starting from about 1/4 into the screen (IE - Screen edge > [ |Starts Here| |Starts here| ] < Screen Edge), if that makes any sense. If not, here is a terrible picture that hopefully clears it up some: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17388159/SAM_2335.JPG Is the screen going out? Is maybe a cable loose?
Problem 2: No sound plays, yet speakers make beep code sounds. Obviously at least one speaker works, because beep codes come out of it. However, when playing a windows sound, or a game, nothing what-so-ever comes out of either speaker. I checked every sound setting imaginable, including moving the sound slider on the keyboard, but nothing. Just the left speaker making beep codes sometimes. (Running Win95)
