You will need to connect an external monitor that is capable of a higher resolution. Sound like the native resolution of the LCD panel in the notebook is 1024X768, not uncommon for 15" laptops.

    Video driver probably is the way to go in this case

I bought a used Dell P2211H widescreen monitor and it did not come with the driver disk- i am connecting it to a lenovo ibm thinkpad x61s - will it be compatiable and which drivers do i need to...

Generally, no drivers are needed. All you have to do is adjust the resolution of you PC from display properties after connecting the LCD as External Monitor.
Thinkpad X61S has Intel X3100 Graphics which supports the maximum analog output of 2048x1536
Whereas Dell Dell P2211H supports high-definition resolution up to 1920x1080 Max. So, I think that you can connect Dell P2211H with your PC.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Thinkvision monitor is in power save mode. It is not connecting to Thinkpad laptop

There are 2 possible reasons for this:
- Your Laptop resolution is not supported from the monitor. Solution: reduce the resolution to something smaller (e.g. 800x600) and then gradually increase it untill you have the maximum accepted resolution from the monitor.
- You have not switched the Laptop display to point to the external monitor. Solution: do that b pressing the corresponding shortcuts in your Thinkpad keyboard. (usually a bottom left key together with a top key).

Not using full display on IBM T20

That would be my guess. Go to the laptop manufacturer website to get an updated one.
