Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

IBM T20 2647 loaded with Microsoft XP pro

The display size of my IBM T20 is way too large for my 14" LCD screen. How do I reduce this display size to fit into LCD size? Or is the video card bad?

You should be able to right click on your desktop and select properties and on the settings tab select the screen resolution to atleast 800 x 600, if you cannot and only 640 x 480 is available, the the driver may be corrupt for you graphics card. Go to the link below and download the driver for your graphics from here and install:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4JRNJB Go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look in the list at graphics adapters, right click on it and select update driver and the downloaded driver should be found, you may see an exclamation mark at the graphics line, this wiil mean there is no driver for the card and by right clicking again on it and select update driver should sort it, reboot pc and see if you can alter the screen resolution.

Well this web page has the specs for you laptop:-

From what I've seen, it probably had XP loaded originally.

Now you could try contacting Microsoft for a genuine copy of XP complete with COA. Of see if you can get a copy from a PC shop or even ebay.

I'd be tempted to go down the slightly more adventurous route and download a copy of XUBUNTU. Its a Linux based operating system. A lighter version of the main (Ubuntu) designed for older laptops.

What would cause Windows Media Player 11 to NOT display? It shows up in the taskbar, and audio is heard but it will not come up on the screen. No new programs have been loaded and I have done a complete...

This may happen as a result of having made a screen resolution change, especially from a large resolution to a smaller one. Other times, it's a glitch in the programming, though I haven't witnessed one in XP, Vista or better. Try switching to the highest resolution possible and set it. If you now see the Media Player window display, reduce its size to about half, and then reset the resolution to what it was before. Then close the Media player window and restart. It should open to the same exact size as the last time you used it.
Good luck!

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

Out of range external monitor

The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.
