Need your inputs. It's the 3rd Thinkpad in the family, the X220, just
over 4 months old, in extremely good hands.
Today morning we turned it on and the display is constantly blinking,
to a point of making the system unusable. I have posted a video on
youtube, but it is under processing. Basically the laptop display
keeps turning on/off, I hear beeps while this happens and there is
intermittent behaviour from locking the laptop to logout, in a infinite
loop, wireless stopping / starting, drives mounting / unmoiunting,
basically I have turn it off to stop this Overused word.
It runs both Linux and Windows 7, exactly the same behavior in both
the OS. I tried booting it with a live stick (linux), still the same
I tried pluging it to an external display, no luck, still the same
display turning on/off and blinking.
Any idea what is happening?
Anything I can try to trouble shoot this?
I have some critical data stored on the harddrive and am worried I
will lose it should I send it for repair. Any way I can backup the
data (Over 26Gig).
Appreciate any help / pointers on this.
