    Hi
    I may not have explained it correctly:
    Dual monitor with the SAME PICTURE is no problem!

    How to run with two monitors
    TWO different applications?

    Best regards
    Tom

    Sorry this is NOT the point.
    > Dual monitor WORKS
    > How to run different applications on each monitor is my question.
    Thanks for your help

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.

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.

IBM T43 laptop display


This is an example of an inverter going out slowly. Usually, they tend to just go out and you diagnosed correctly when you seen the faintness on the screen and tested with another monitor.

The Dell inverter will not fit, more than likely. They are all different sizes, lengths, etc.

I would recommend just replacing the screen of the Toshiba. You can get one for less that $50.00 on eBay and it will save you alot of hassle trying to swap out the inverter (my opinion).
