Hi, I'm having XP Home SP2 on IBM THINK CENTRE,MONITOR E 54, but did never experience such a peculiar problem. It happens like, in my monitor, for the last few months I'm seeing that, the on screen display (i.e. the display we see after pressing those buttons) appears in the monitor on its own and keeps on coming and disappearing continuously. The contrast menu appears and it goes up to 100% on its own. If I press decrease button of the monitor sometimes it decreases but again immediately increases up to maximum. It remains there and hardly goes off from the monitor.In the Device Manager I've checked the status of Monitor n in the Properties therein it shows the 'device is working properly'. This gives a lot of troubles in my working. Would you please suggest me something to fix it? I have tried all the method from reinstalling graphic driver to checking the cables.
This is a problem in the monitor itself. The computer has absolutely no control over the On Screen Display. Most likely the button that controls contrast is stuck. You might try blasting the button with canned air. Sounds like it might be time to buy a new or used monitor.

It could be the display driver issue as the monitor should be detected by default.Try connecting to the display port direct;y to the CPU display port if you are connecting to the graphics card and then check.

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.
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!

I think you have an inverter board thats just about dead. It's located in the screens plastic housing at the bottom of the screen just above the keyboard. It's about 4 inches long and a half inch wide.There's just one little cable connecting it. But you have to take your screen apart to get to it. It's easy to replace and relatively inexpensive but it does require a little disassembly skill.
Also ,I will need the exact part number from the bottom of your laptop. There are several different R 40 models, and 2 different screen sizes.
I beleive that you may need a splitter, I think it may be called a convergance splitter to work with the program. Check with the manufacturer support for the program. They should be able to tell you if a splitter is needed.
I assume you are running window XP or vista?
Start>Control Panel and look for Power Saver, or Screensaver options. There will be settings there for determining how long, if at all, your display will take to turn off.
