I have a brand new X200S (windows XP Pro), docking station and an older IBM external display (which I used until now with a X31).
When I start the PC, the external display works first until log-in. AFter log-in the external display becomes black and the power LED stays green, blinking.
If I open the cover of the X200S the image appears on the external display. When I close it it disappears.
Often when I switch off and back on the notebook, the external display becomes black even before I can log-in.
I need to turn on, and off, my PC 4 to 6 times until (for no obvious reason) the external display works properly:
Any idea where is the problem????

How do I check the BIOS? Do I need ADMIN rights?
Note that after the 4th or 5th try it does work all day. I am wondering if there is not a problem of current with the Intel Chipset or a cold solder on the motherboard which gets OK with more heat??
