Hi Hope this is the right place for this question! My husband has had an IBM Thinkpad R40 for approx 14 months and in the last week and a half when he uses it with the AC Adapter power cable, the screen starts to shimmer quite violently. He wasnt sure what was causing it at first - maybe a heat problem etc. but found that it stopped when he removed the power cable. Replacing it started the shimmering again. Does anyone know what this problem could be and whether it can be resolved without having to pay for costly repairs? Could it be the cable itself or the cable connection on the laptop? We would be grateful for any advice. Thanks.
