    In my company we have bought two refurbished IBM thinkpads 760XL. One of them has kind like "flicker", a continous wave in the screen. I have tried another power outlet (grounded), and to operate it far from any inductive charge. What could it be the cause of this?

    a loose connection between the screen and laptop console can often cause this. Try searching IBM's site for a technical document that will show you how to correct this. Usually involves popping off the top panel near the screen, and making sure the rubbon is secure.
