How to use the function (Fn) keys on the keyboard - ThinkPad T40, T40p, T41, T41p, T42, T42p, T43, T43p


Switching the display output location.
Switch between the computer display and an external monitor. If an external monitor is attached, the computer output is displayed in the following three patterns by turns:
  • External monitor (CRT display)
  • Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
  • Computer display (LCD)
Notes:
  • For any operating system other than Windows 2000 or Windows XP, no additional procedure is needed. Just press Fn+F7.
  • This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
  • This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing.
To enable this function in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the following procedure is needed:
  1. When you log on to Windows 2000 and Windows XP for the first time, press Fn + F7 and select a display-switching function in the Initial setup window. Since in Windows 2000 and Windows XP multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs, each user needs to select the function in the initial setup window when logging on for the first time.
  2. If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T42 and until a few minutes ago my touch pad was working with no problems. I installed a wireless mouse and that works fine. But I cannot control the cursor with the touch pad or red...


Try going to Start>Control Panel>Printer and other Hardware and look for mouse pad or something like that. I think the problem is that you can only use either the mouse pad or the mouse, can't use them both at the same time.

IBM T42 laptop...NO Video, laptop powers up however fan spins however...ideas???


Connect the laptop to an external monitor, you may have to hold down the Function key and press the F8 or F7 CRT/LCD key to switch between monitor and display, to see if the video card is defective.
I hope this helps solve your problem.
Good Luck.

Black screen


there three issues with think pads that are common for this issue

1 bad inverter board
2 bad ccfl lamp in the lcd screen
3 bad video chip or other issue on the mother board

Inverters are not hard to replace and can be done by most people with patience and soft touch
ccfl bulbs require service techs with specialized skills to replace them, the lcd has to e taken apart or completely replaced
motherboards or video cards are much more complex issues and need service centers or techs with the requisite skills
