Right click on an empty area on the desktop, select "Properties" from the menu and select the 'Settings' tab. Under the 'Display' heading, select your new screen from the drop down menu and click Apply and OK and see if this helps..

Hello gkirindongo,

Do you mean the wallpaper of the desktop is divided into 4 equal parts, or do you mean the whole desktop is divided into 4 equal parts? (are there 4 "start", 4 "recyle paper", 4 "My Copmpure, 4 mouses cursors?...)

In the desktop properties , settings tab , you can clone the desktop to the other screen or make it extend to the other screen or make one or the other the primary , so you should check that setting in there to see if thats the setting problem thats giving you that kind of display

  1. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click Display icon.
  2. In the Display properties window click the Settings tab.
  3. In Settings tab under the Display click the down arrow and select the secondary display connected to your computer.
  4. Once selected check the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor option.
If your external display is not shown by Windows its likely that your laptop does not support this feature.

I would check the cable and connector pins first.
Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor.

It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.

    IBM R40 Screen Problems


    I think you have an inverter board thats just about dead. It's located in the screens plastic housing at the bottom of the screen just above the keyboard. It's about 4 inches long and a half inch wide.There's just one little cable connecting it. But you have to take your screen apart to get to it. It's easy to replace and relatively inexpensive but it does require a little disassembly skill.
    Also ,I will need the exact part number from the bottom of your laptop. There are several different R 40 models, and 2 different screen sizes.

    There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual you can get one here. Hope this helps.
