T-61 Monitor Driver - extend desktop across laptop screen + external monitor

2009-06-14, 17:44 PM
Last year, I ordered and installed a Lenovo 19" Flat-Panel monitor (and driver) for my T-61p ThinkPad.  Recently, as a contractor working on an IBM project, I was provided with an R61 ThinkPad and HP 1740 monitor.  The monitor driver that came with the R61 allows me to extend my desktop displays across the R61 screen plus the monitor screen as one contiguous desktop spread across the 2 screens.  The driver that came with my Lenovo 19" monitor only gives me the option of duplicating my T61 desktop screen on my external monitor.  Can I extract/copy the driver from the R61 and install it on the T61?  Or download a free version of the "extended desktop" driver from Lenovo, IBM, or somewhere else?  I've searched the Lenovo site but found no references to driver downloads.
