I had to replace the entire screen assembly on my IBM ThinkPad R52 (Operating system is XP) because my backlight and/or inverter went out.
The screen works perfectly now and I have a perfect picture.
The problem, however, is that now when I go to "SHUTDOWN", it makes the sign off noise, but then the screen stays blue with a cursor arrow on it. At this stage, the cursor arrow cannot be moved with the mouse pad. I have to then physically push the power button for the laptop to shutdown.
When starting back up, I do not get any type of shutdown error message so I'm assuming I'm fine there, however, I would like it to work as it should without having to power it down with the button.
Can someone please provide a solution for this? I'm hoping it's a setting of some sort.
Thank you in advance and as usual I appreciate all that you do here.
