    Hello, this is my first post here.
    I just purchased an IBM Thinkpad 600E.
    I read the owners manual and booted the system up, everything is working fine except the LCD display. I can barely make out the desk top items or the start button. If I look very closely I can see these things.
    What can I do to fix this problem?

    TIA, Phil

    Hi Tored

    What exactly is the problem with the display?...is it too faint, too small, too dark?

    Joey, the display is very faint.
    It seems to be getting a little clearer as I try to use the laptop but is very hard to see anything on the screen.

    Thanks, Phil

    Hi and welcome. Does this model happen to have a slider button or control to turn the brightness up and down?

    I'd take it back to where I bought it then. Did you not see/test it prior to purchasing it?

    I bought it from a friend, he said it worked fine for him. I am sure he will make good on it but I am trying to figure this out myself.

    Thanks, Phil

    My fear of what you are going to figure out is the LCD is slowly dying, and they are NOT cheap to replace.
