Ibm thinkpad wont connect to LG TV


Lower the screen resolution to 720 dpi.

Another issue is the reference to RGB. Is it the 3 cable (YPBPR) or the standard 15 pin VGA? You may need a converter.

Why is it that when certain laptops are connected to a projector the display on the screen from the projector is smaller??? i find i have this problem often especially with the series of smaller laptops...


Try going to your "Control Panel" in the start menu. In the right column under "Appearance and Personalization" choose "Adjust screen resolution". From there choose a larger resolution size, preferably with the same ratio as your projection screen!

I tried to connect my ibm thinkpad to a projector, press Fn+F7 keys but nothing being projected. Tried with a few projectors. Urgent help needed. Thanks.


If you connect the laptop before switching it on, it will default to external screen and force a picture, make sure the projector is powered up and configured to the correct resolution or you will get nothing.
Hope that helps

My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.


Try these steps:

1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
3. Attach battery and plug into wall
4. Power "ON" as normal

If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

The display on my ibm thinkpad r40 is black after initial dim ibm screen. External monitor works fine though. This happened immediately after I used my ibm with a projector this morning? Fn F7 does not...


The problem youve discribed does seem to point to your back light has failed on the laptops lcd display, i dont know exactly how this would accure just using a projector though, go into bios again and try loading factory settings.

This problem could also be the inverter if you cant make out even a slight image on the screen.

let me know what happens. thanks

ViewSonic VP171b resolution problem


If you went from a standard screen to a wide-screen, you have to upgrade the video card.
Also, try going into the menu option on screen and have it automatically detect settings.
First thing you should do is update your drivers.
Should have said that first.

No visual display


It sounds like your graphics card is shot. If your graphics card is a dedicated graphics card, you might be able to get it fixed/replaced; if it is embedded, then you are probably going to have to buy a whole new display screen.

A t.v. proyector ready to use


Here's a website that sells the projectors and such, so you should be able to find exactly what you are wanting and within your budget as well.

You'll need to know the specs on your screen, so you make sure that you fit the projector to the room dimensions and the screen size. You don't want to have it so that it only fills half the screen at optimum resolution or that it is 20% too big for the screen at optimum resolution either.

Make sure you pay attention to where the unit can be mounted as well, so you don't get stuck with one that has to be rear mounted and you have to have it mounted on the wall behind your seating.
