Re: double display with my IBM think pad T43
Have you tried Function F7/F8 ?
Make sure that your display driver is installed correctly.
I had the same Laptop as you did and was able to have dual monitor.
Also check your Display driver in your control panel and make sure it set to dual monitor.

set it to clone. it should give you identical displays. then try setting it to extended display. But make sure that your laptop display is primary display. That is why your external screen is displaying because it set on primary.

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)
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:
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.
If the Fn + F7 key combination have been assigned to a presentation scheme function, start Presentation Director, and change the settings.
You have a TFT failure - to confirm if it is not m/board related plug and external monitor to the external vga port and boot the unit. If the display to the external is ok then your TFT requires replacement.
