Your display driver is the windows generic driver. You need the video driver from IBM for your model machine. Installing the correct driver will give you the higher resolution you seek.

I have an IBM ThinkPad running Windows 98 Second Edition used to program older radios so it needs the older version of Windows. The display power on showing IBM Thinkpad full size, but when windows or DOS...


Hi there,

I've seen this before, the main problem is that the resolution is set too low, so it only fills part of the screen.

two ways to solve it.

1. Adjust the resolution to the optimal setting so it fills the entire screen.

2. Find the Picture Scaling option and have it Scale the picture to the entire screen.

To adjust the resolution, now its been a long time since I used windows 98, but I think you got to it by going to your desktop with the background, right click anywhere on the empty space and select properties, now on the window that opens it was the last page, settings I think, you should get an representation of your screen with a resolution lever and color options, pull the resolution lever one point to the right and hit apply and ok, do this until the picture fills the entire screen.

If your laptop has internet connectivity, I could take a look at it over remote support and solve the problem for you.

How do i change the screen from vertical display to horizontal


The IBM ThinkPad Z61t computer runs the Windows operating system. Normally, Windows is displayed on a monitor in a manner that makes it easy to read. If you want to change the screen display configuration (from vertical to horizontal), modify the screen display properties in Windows itself. This process causes the computer to rotate the image displayed on the screen by 90, 180 or 270 degrees, depending on the setting you choose.

1.Right-click on an empty portion of the Windows desktop on the Z61t.

2.Click "Properties."

3.Click "Display."

4.Click "Change display settings."

5.Click the "Orientation" drop-down window. Select the "Landscape" option to make the screen display items in a horizontal manner.

Game display only occupies the center portion of monitor not full screen. Thinkpad A22m w/ windows xp home SP3. Can't get the game screen to display on the full monitor screen.


It is most likely that the game is unable to operate at the resolution that your screen is set at and is compensating by sizing the game window to the required size. You might change you display resolution to a lower setting.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

My IBM Thinkpad A21m was working fine, then all of a sudden, the display screen size is about half of normal. When I plug a desktop monitor into it, the screen is full size. What's going on?


right click on an area of BLANK desktop and select properties
Now go to the SETTINGS tab and check the resolution and adjust it to a little higher. click APPLY then OK

If all went well you should notice a difference If not report back to this post and w will see what else needs to be done

If it did make a difference then adjust it more if you need.

Adjustment of the resolution on an IBM Thinkpad 2373


You can adjust your Screen Resolution, by Right clicking on your Desktop - then left click on Properties - here depending on your operating system (windows XP or Vista), you can go to the Display Properties, Settings Tab, there you can adjust your Screen Resolution to the less (lowest) possible number which might be 800x600 or maybe even 640x480 - either way, lower it down to make the icons and text larger in appeareance, this will effect the outcome of many of your applications, but most will allow you to scroll as necessary to view the entire window if necessary.

Replace LCD screen


All modern thinkpads are similar, you start by taking apart keyboard and top cover, then you unscrew hinges and remove screen. Here is some movie:
