    I just purchased a used IBM Thinkpad T30 that is +/- 5 years old and need help from anyone who might have encountered such a situation with their laptop.

    Laptop works great, but....
    here is my problem:
    The monitor brightness is VERY unstable, same thing as if I would be playing with the brightness button up and down constantly all the time. It takes less than a second to go down and get back again to normal, then it just starts back all over again non-stop.

    Can this be fixed?
    Is it possible to replace the monitor of a laptop?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    From a quick search on eBay, the computer looks to be worth about $250, and a replacement screen is $100. If possible, return the faulty computer and get your money back.
