Sounds like you need to make sure the proper video drivers are installed. Head on over to: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=/productselection/landingpages/downloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo

And input your systems specific information to grab the lastest video driver for it. See if that helps at all.

Thimkpad t20 s-video not working


You don't go into display properties; you just tell your computer to output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and another key on your keyboard; sometimes its F4...it will have a picture of a screen on it...

Looking at a blurry picture of the keyboard, it looks like the key could be F7.

So, first connect your computer to the cable and to the TV. Set the TV on the input that you are inputting to. Press FN + F7 and it will route the display from your screen to the output. If you press Fn + F7 again, it may route the display to both the screen and the TV.

Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.

Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

Ibm t20 no LCD backlight


while the T20 is on and manifesting the dim display....

1. try to slowly close the lid (but not totally closing it) and then pulling it back to its original position slowly. Tell me if the light goes back.

if by doing that action the backlight lights up, you are most likely faced with a Flex cable problem. You might need to buy this from ebay. (dim display problem in T20 series is very common these days due to wear and tear of the flex cable)

2. Also try to use a pen to turn on and off the limit switch that triggers the backlight. This is located above the keyboard below the lcd. See what happens.

IBM T20 2647 loaded with Microsoft XP pro


you should be able to right click on your desktop and select properties and on the settings tab select the screen resolution to atleast 800 x 600, if you cannot and only 640 x 480 is available, the the driver may be corrupt for you graphics card. Go to the link below and download the driver for your graphics from here and install:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4JRNJB Go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look in the list at graphics adapters, right click on it and select update driver and the downloaded driver should be found, you may see an exclamation mark at the graphics line, this wiil mean there is no driver for the card and by right clicking again on it and select update driver should sort it, reboot pc and see if you can alter the screen resolution.
