  1. Hello all, I'm a newbie and look forward to a great learning experience from this site. I have an IBM 600X thinkPad that is giving me a problem that i have not experienced before. Upon boot i receive a screen that has a circle then the word off followed by the greater than sign (>) followed by a verticle line the a smaller verticle line and then the word on. Looks very much like this O off > I on Anyone have an explanation for what this is, what it means and how can i deal with it? Thanks, laryjacq.

    Absolutely no clue what that is.

    Do you get proper display at any point during the boot (during POST for instance)? Does it sound like your PC is continuing the boot process (active HDD) and it's just your display that isn't working? Can you boot into Safe Mode or VGA Mode with different results? Any way you can take a picture of it?

    :D Details, details, details...
