New Lenovo T61 w/ Vista not recognizing Full-Size Dock Video???

All,  Just received a Lenovo T61 w/ Vista Enterprise, but it won't work with my existing full-sized dock.  The full-sized dock has the IBM dual-head VGA/DVI video card.

 

The USB mouse & keyboard work, but the video defaults to low res. on the laptop screen.  I discover this after I open up the lid because nothing hapens on my external displays.

 

The full-sized dock & video work just fine with my T60 running XP.

 

Any input would be appreciated.  Thank you!  Marc

Have you tried changing the video card settings? Like selecting the external monitor manually?

I've tried installing the latest ATI Radeon (1300 series) driver for the card.  But Win-Vista still disables the driver and/or the video card never responds...

BSU4PHD~

 

In Vista Display properties, does it show that the external monitor is attached?  If not, right-click and select "Attach".  Do you have a add-on video card in the dock?
