Connect an external monitor, press F7 to switch displays. If all is good then the video card is ok.

1. check your display settings for the best possible screen resolution for your laptop.
2. the new CPU that is installed is defaulted at 1080p resolution and is to strong for the video graphics card that is on the mother board which is possibly 1280X740 . Being a laptop and the video graphics is built into the mother board therefore possibly not compatible with the new processor.
3.

Go to IBM website and look for drivers for your computer model (T41) and locate the network drivers. (This obviously has to be done from another computer with internet access). Download and save the setup file to a flash drive and then run the setup on the IBM T41

Usually with laptops you have to replace the mobo but looks like there may be a possibility (slim one) that the card can be replaced, however I could not find anything as far as parts to get to replace just the video card so its looking more and more like the whole mobo would need to be replaced.

Adjustment of the resolution on an IBM Thinkpad 2373


You can adjust your Screen Resolution, by Right clicking on your Desktop - then left click on Properties - here depending on your operating system (windows XP or Vista), you can go to the Display Properties, Settings Tab, there you can adjust your Screen Resolution to the less (lowest) possible number which might be 800x600 or maybe even 640x480 - either way, lower it down to make the icons and text larger in appeareance, this will effect the outcome of many of your applications, but most will allow you to scroll as necessary to view the entire window if necessary.

My ThinkPad keeps freezing


I had the EXACT same problem with my T41. Mine issues were caused by overheating from too much dust/dirt inside. I took it completely apart, blew it all out with a compressed air, and reapplied thermal compaund to the processor/fan...works like a charm now. Definitely start there...it cost $4 for a can of air and $6 for thermal compound and about 45 minutes of my time. It's better than spending a bunch of time and money replacing components.

I have an ibm thinkpad t41 laptop i upgraded to a 1gig ram i want to know if the grapics card can be changed or upgraded . I am trying to run 7 wonders game and it freezes up


the graphics cards really cant be upgraded with out major work. The game you want to run needs 512 of dedicated video memory, not shared as a laptop uses.

Hope this helps,

Thanks,

Graphics cards on laptops cannot be changed or upgraded. In order to do this, I believe you have to change out the screen, because graphics cards in laptops are within the screens.
