DVI functionality Thinkpad R61 8934 - F9U mini dock help needed...

2008-07-03, 14:56 PM

Windows XP 4 gb  ram...




Can not get the DVI to work, VGA will as will ALL other functions on the 2504 10U dock.


Machine has the integrated grahpics 965 I believe.


I have updated the Graphics card and the BIOS to newest releases.


Am I missing something here other than incompatibility?

fatjohnny, welcome to the forum,


the 15.4" R series with integrated graphics do, regretably, not have BIOS DVI pass through support. I did some investigation for this post which concerns an R61i.


This is an unfortunate situation, but untill Lenovo write a fix, make a change, in the BIOS you will not be able to use DVI.


Sorry :smileysad:
