If you right click on an empty space on your desktop and click properties, your graphics adapter driver settings should appear, look in the settings and you will have the option to rotate the screen back to normal.

What large lcd monitor can I buy that will best display a full 8.5x11 page and still let me be able to read the type?

Some wide-screen monitors have a "rotate" option in the software that comes with the monitor -- you physically rotate the screen 90 degrees, and then Windows will rotate the entire "desktop" so that you now have an "extra-tall' screen, instead of an "extra-wide" screen.

Ibm thinkvision monitor problem

I would try it with other PC, if it is still doing the same thing and you want to DIY repair, then please read below.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Inout signal out of range Answer Failed: retry

It shows out of range because the PC is sending out the video signal that is higher than the monitor can display, you need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution: 1024 x 768 @60Hz. You can reboot the PC into save mode (hitting F8 key while booting up) then set the resolution to 640 x 480 (try 1024 x 768 if it allows you to do so), reboot and reset the resoltion to 1024 x 768 @60Hz.

1 Answer

IBM ThinkVision 17" L170P, the problem is that the screen is black and power indicator is steady green on. Can not turn off the power indicator at all.

Check the DVI connections on your computer and your monitor. It is possible that there is not a good connection. Do you have access to another working monitor? If you connect a different monitor, and that monitor comes up, it could be the DVI cable or a bad monitor itself. If neither monitor comes up it could be a bad video card or port, or the computer may not recgonize it under Properties, Display, then settings when you right-click on the monitor, if you are using it as a second monitor.

Laptop doesn't see the monitor i attach to it

1st off there is a Fn key, I think Fn + F5? to turn the monitor on. It is a toggle button that toggles between only the monitor or monitor and Laptop screen both or just the laptop screen.

I hope that can help, if not, please tell me what you have tried. As in, does the monitor work on another PC/Laptop?
