    Did you press the correct key combo on the keyboard so that the computer knows to send video to the external vga port?

So there are a few things you need to know, you will need a converter box from the Laptop to TV, but you would not need one for connecting your laptop to a monitor. These can be purchased online (ebay) or in stores.

Ibm thinkpad wont connect to LG TV


Lower the screen resolution to 720 dpi.

Another issue is the reference to RGB. Is it the 3 cable (YPBPR) or the standard 15 pin VGA? You may need a converter.

Blue function keys


Theres no function key lock, just the blue Fn button on the lower left corner of the keyboard.

If you cant get any of the function keys to work and the keyboard just thinks that you are pressing the standard button without pressing Fn, then this could be a fault with the contacts in the Fn key.

To help you troubleshoot your keyboard. I think you need to get a diagnostic utility running to be sure the key is faulty.

Visio vga to e machine


No, that shouldn't be related.

The problem is most likely between the software and the video card and much less likely between the computer and the TV.

IBM,lenovo ThinkPad R31


Maintenance manuals for both systems are on www.lenovo.com/support, under the publications section. But without looking at it, I would say no, the cables will not work.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
