T60 VGA issue

Hi all

 

I have a problem with a second hand T60 I just bought. Everything works besides thre VGA port. I have tried to connect to a LCD screen and a projector, but without success at all.

 

I am a rookie when it comes to BIOS settings, drivers etc., so can anyone explain to me how I can correct this - and keep in mind - I'm a rookie at this, so details are greatly appreciated....;-)

Hello mate,

 

Use Fn+F7 and select a mode external screen or projector.

Re: T60 VGA issue

Hi.

 

Yeah - tried taht, but all it does is change my screen to black, but it does really nothing for the projector. I have tried in the display settings to activate the 2nd screen and press fn and space, which also gave no result.

 

Other ideas?

 

Cheers...

Re: T60 VGA issue

go into your bios, under display option, set the primary boot display monitor to vga. Start the laptop and then quickly close the internal LCD, does anything come up on the external display/projector.

Re: T60 VGA issue

What version of windows do you use ? And what is your type number (look like 2343-F5G you can find that under your laptop) ?

Try to reinstall the latest driver there : http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-62841

 

Uninstall the old one first.
