New to this forum. Have posted this issue in other forums, but to no avail.
Basically, I have a used IBM A22m Laptop that is giving me intermittent issues both with the LCD and memory. The LCD is my main issue, because I think the memory is heat related.
When I turn the computer on, the LCD shows garbled with lines running horizontal usually mostly white. If I push the screen all the way out so it's flat, and then slowly pull it back to a comfortable viewing position everything shows normal. All systems normal unless the computer gets bumped or set down the screen goes back to it's garbage state. It can be corrected only if I twist the housing slightly. After all this happens I usually can't get it to display properly again until after it has had time to "rest." Then it's the same routine again.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I was told elsewhere that the LCD is shot. But to me it feel's like a bad connection.
