Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook

Vertical lines on thinkpad T43p screen.

Hi, when my thinkpad t43p starts warming up it displays a number of vertical lines on the screen. Switching to a external monitor does not help, they are still there! This means the problem is from the graphics card(i think). its a ATI Mobility fireGL V3200. If someone could just tell me if it can be fixed? I cant swap the graphics on a laptop!
Thank you very much.

You have identified the fault is the video card, I am in agreement. The fault is on the motherboard and a replacement motherboard is the only fix. This may not be a cost effective solution, I would recommend you put your money towards a new laptop.

I have to click twice or three times to get any action to happen on my ThoinkPad T43p


Hi, it seems that the Mouse click speed is slow, try increasing the Speed. It might help you. To increase the Mouse speed follow the steps.

Press and hold Windows Logo+ R key, this will launch the Run command prompt.
Then type "Control" in the Run Command prompt, to open Control Panel.
Now select the Mouse Option in the Control Panel.
Check the double click speed, move the slider to fast and check. Please get back if the issue still persist.

There is most likely a utility ( ati util ) that runs in the background so set the resolution through there utility and that should solve the issue where as if you set it through windows display properties it will continue to do the above.
