Screen 'not connected'? Where's the PVA...

Posted 01-26-2011 at 09:34 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

My screen on my Thinkpad 600 recently died and I believe its backlight has finally given way. While troubleshooting the problem I discovered some very interesting things about my Thinkpad.

It all started with the Thinkpad 600 hardware maintenance manual which I found on the web after a brief google. It contained key combinations that allowed me to access advanced information in the 'Simple' BIOS.

Obviously, those in the know will be aware that Qt and GTK+ (the toolkit currently included with Ubuntu) are used by KDE and GNOME respectively, and both have very different design philosophies.
