It could be done but is not an economical task. The cost of spare parts to make the change would probably exceed the value of the machine.

Go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-39796 and read the IBM Hardware Maintenace Manual.

If you really want a 15" display, buy a used T31 (eBay?) configured the way you want it and then sell yours.

Good luck.

Ibm thinkpad T-40 screen blackout intermittant


There is a toggle key that switches your monitor from on to projecter to dual monitors. If this key gets pressed accidently then the screen will to black. Try hitting the FN +F5 or FN+F6 keys at the same time. Push the keys down three of four times each. The sleep mode would change back to active mode if you re-booted your system.
