I've got a Lenovo T60p Type 8745 laptop. It has a widescreen. When I installed Windows 7, it defaulted to 'Generic PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'. I can't seem to find the correct driver to move it to, and I dunno how to find which specific graphics card I have. The resolution I'm using is 1280 x 1024 which appears a little wide. Any help on this issue would be much appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo T60p Type 8745

to find out which graphics card you have go to control panel then device manager and click on display adapter and then post back to see if anyone can advise.

Hello,Today I just purchased, from an authorized dealer, a bran new T60 type 2007-5DG.The firts look of cartoon box (perfectly sealed with secured scotch) displayed an original Lenovo label with bar codes, serial number and the machine type 2007-5DG and the words "ThinkPad T60p" ....

I get no display on the T60P.  Display is fine on external screen.  Computer sat around unused for a month and display problem happened when I went to use the machine again.  I opened machine and checked connectors, replugging screen connector.  Computer may have gotten wet recently but computer itself is operating fine.  There was no water in computer when I opened it up.  Thanks for help.

Answer:T60P display not working

First, if it got wet, the problem could be anything. Assuming it didn't get wet, try to see if you can see an image on the screen with no backlight on. It would be most visible at startup.

The display of my T60p had failed suddenly, as shown below. I thought his was not the problem of the LCD, since the system would hang when I was connecting to the external monitor by VGA cable and Fn+F7. Is this the problem caused by the graphic-chipset (FireGL v5200)? Should I replace the motherboard? Please help. Thanks.

hi everyone, I have two systems. at work i'm using a t61 running vista. Today i connected the laptop to a port replicator so i could use the digital dvi cable attached to my Dell monitor and the display difference was unbelievable vs. regular VGA connection. At home i have a T60p running XP Pro also attached to a port replicator and a HP LP2065 monitor. When i use the dvi cable on this setup i do not get the same results. As a matter of fact the dvi cable (digital) and the vga cable give the same display results on the monitor. I believe i have the latest display driver installed (ati mobility fireGL V5200) Any ideas? thanks, Athan

Hey all, just reinstalled Win XP Pro fresh on my T60p. Everything works except the OnScreen Display for firmware operations (i.e. volume display and icons when switching on/off the ThinkLight, etc.) Fn+F5 and Fn+F7 displays still work. Already tried reinstalling the OSD extension and graphics card driver. Here's the weird part. When I first installed, it worked fine. I was looking for a different setting and found the Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced>OSD control panel. OSD was turned off. I turned it on, hit apply, and it no longer worked. I turned it off again, hit apply and it still didn't work. What the...? I don't have time to reinstall Win XP from scratch, can anyone find a fix? Thanks!!!

Answer:T60p OnScreen Display Not Working

You should really search this forum, as I've answered this twice in the past three days. Nevertheless, here we go again: Go into Advanced Display Properties and UN-CHECK everything that has to do with the OSD. Make sure you never go there again. This is a known bug and Lenovo has not fixed it. As soon as you touch this setting set, you will lose the OSD. Now open regedit and navigate to the following: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IBM\TPHOTKEY\OnScreenDisplay] Match every entry to the values below and you will have your OSD with a dark blue display."FadeoutTime"=dword:000003e8"Color"=dword:00ff0000"CustomColors"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00"Size"=hex:14,1e,28,14"Font"="Tahoma""Enable"=dword:00000001

USUALLY, a red hue on the internal display indicates a failing backlight..
YMMV..
 
are you saying that this problem ONLY presents itself when you are using an external projector or display..?
 
if that is the case, then the backlight won't have anything to do with your problem..

Hello to all out there, as you can see I am new to this forum and I am sure someone out there can help.I have inherited my T60p from work as part of redundancy package, (T60p 2.16ghtz, 3 gig ram,  fireGL 5250, xp pro sp3, 8741-C2G ). All drivers up to date, (I think)Problem is when start-up is complete the screen has 5 dark shadows(like a hand print) radiating from the centre of the bottom of the screen  which dissapear after about 15 mins but the sides of the screen are still dark? I did ask our IT guy but he said he didnt know and it wasnt his problem anymore.Warranty is untill next year, is this still valid as I did not purchase this laptop?Thanks for your help in advance, I have enjoyed reading through this forum and didn't realise there were so many issues with IBM machines, I have had T30, T40, T41 and now this T60p and have not had any issues, until now, does that make me a minority?Regards to all Gordon

Answer:T60p widescreen, display issue

Gordon, welcome to the forum, If you could take a photo of what you are seeing, that would help. You will need to host it externally, by flickr.com or other similar site and provide a link in your post. Members will then be enabled to offer better advice being able to see what you are seeing. You may also be able to send the photo(s) should you need to call service. The warranty moves with the system s/n, it s still valid if ownership changes. No worries. GordonA wrote: Thanks for your help in advance, I have enjoyed reading through this forum and didn't realise there were so many issues with IBM machines, I have had T30, T40, T41 and now this T60p and have not had any issues, until now, does that make me a minority? As you yourself have done so; people who have issues look to find solutions and land in this forum or forums similar to this one, if you have no issues you do not look for solutions and maybe don't find those forums - makes sense? Hope this helps

Hi All, I've got a Lenovo T60P 87418BM laptop. I've recently upgraded to Windows 8 Pro with Media Center (32-bit). A couple of issues I've come across which I couldn't work out. 1. Volume Up/Down, Mute & Blue ThinkVantage Buttons - The buttons don't work and don't display on screen either. I've installed Windows 8 Hotkey Features Integration driver (version 3.84.1500) and also tried the previous version (3.81.0100) but still can't get the keys to work. All buttons and on screen display were working when I had Windows 7 installed previously. All other function (Fn) keys work. 2. Windows Store Apps - There seems to be an issue with the video/display driver as apps don't show video correctly. The colours are all jumbled up and fuzzy looking. I've installed ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 driver from Lenovo (version 8.383.1.1) and found an updated one (version 8.561.0.0) through Microsoft which I have currently installed. Everything in Windows works correctly including the start menu and default apps. The issue seems to only be evident when downloaded apps from the Windows Store are run. Any assistance would be much appreciated.  Thanks. Dez 

Answer:Lenovo T60P Volume Buttons & Display Problem

Hi, Dez
 
Just to make sure that they are not causing the issue, I would make sure that all other drivers have been updated. Unfortunately, there is not an update for every driver or the BIOS for your system, but I would recommend updating those that are available to have your computer running at its best. You can also subscribe to the RSS feed, and this will let you know when newer drivers, like the BIOS, are available for your system. Both the drivers and the link to the RSS feed can be found here.
 
Hope it helps. Let me know how it goes,
Adam

I did a format and a fresh install of Windows 7 (32-bit) on my T60p (8743-CTO). Because there is no WIn7 driver for the ATI FireGL 5250 available from Lenovo or AMD, I let WIndows Update install its version (8.561.0.0, 12/1/2008). All seems well but when the laptop resumes from Sleep the display is always blank. Other lights and keyboard functions indicate that the system is up but nothing can make the display come on except a power cycle. I have tried many things to resolve this, brought all available drivers and BIOS up to date, tweaked power settings, etc. I think it's probably an video driver issue. When will Lenovo be releasing a Windows 7 ATI driver for the T60p?

Hello,I want to ask, if is possible to change display at R500, exactly if is possible to install WSXGA+ instead of WXGA which is there at default Graphic card is Intel gma 4500, it should support it, but question is if display resolution as autodetected, or is somewhere defined.I know that display with same resolution work fine even if it is form different manufacturer, but there I want different resolution

Answer:Change display type at R500

you mean you want to swap out the WXGA for a WSXGA+? yes you can do that, but that would void your warranty and there is good chance you may damage other parts of the laptop if you are not careful.

Okay. Try this one on for size. My wife's PC's video display stopped working one day (this was covered on another thread). I have a Nvidia 8500 GT vid card in my PC, so I popped her 8600 GT into my PC to test if the card was working. It was, but it apparently loaded the drivers for the new card with my already existing drivers. I had a lot of freezes at boot after that. I decided to go through the long process of uninstalling the nvidia drivers and installing the correct ones. This solved my freeze problem, but a couple of days later after my PC had booted, this problem happened. Let me to try to describe it as best as I can. Out of the corner of eye, I saw the screen going wild. I looked at it and it looked like it was going in circles. Or like someone was taking their finger and drawing circles on the screen. When it was done circling, the display looked like a very very bright and colorful "safe mode" screen desktop except you could only make out what you actually knew from the screen and the PC was locked. This is the strangest part. In the middle of the colorful screen, there was an image that looked like a picture of the top of the processor. It was green and had the same brass line patterns that would appear if you were looking at a processor. I shut it down and checked to see if the vid card was locked in properly. It seemed to be, so I rebooted. Everything seemed fine for bit, then the screen went blank (black). I gave up and put the monitor into ... Read more

Hi Guys, I have just placed an order for an X230T with 12.5 Outdoor HD Display. I did quite a bit of research before making my choice. I was sure that the Outdoor HD display was touch sensitive, however, you do not get the "Multitouch" features and it's far less sentsitive than the Multitouch display. However, I just watched this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLNlSONqX_0 Something he said was something like "This is available with and without the touch sensitive display". Surely, he means "with or without the multi-touch" display as I don't see the option for a non-touch sensitive display. I would asume, since the 12.5 Outdoor HD screen appears to be an "optional upgrade" when you are ordering direct from Lenovo, that this display is still touch sensitive? What is the difference between the 12.5 Multitouch HD and 12.5 Outdoor HD display types? Can someone helpe me out here?













Solved!

Answer:X230T: Display Type: 12.5 Multitouch HD or 12.5 Outdoor HD

The end of the M$ note says "The hardware and software on the system, the device or adapter, or cable does not support the DisplayPort /DockPort or MHL alternate modes." Now since a regular USB port works (2.0 even) for DisplayPort that leaves MHL. Maybe you need one of these.

I own a Lenovo 4446 laptop which I received from my disability support team at Uni 4yrs ago, my laptop now has developed a problem of the screen going green purple and pink The problem started 2 and a half years ago when my cat jumped on the laptop while it was on my cinema surround sound sub woofer, but I never thought anything of it as it corrected itself during power up, but with prolonged usage its developed further and is now constantly green purple and pink.
 
After reading through some of the forums I am pretty sure its something to do with the ribbon cable which goes into the screen on the left hand hinge. I have had problems with this before over the last 18months but I just wiggled the cable and it corrected itself, but now regardless of wiggling the cable my screen remains green purple and pink, what repairs would any of you recommend to fix the problem?
 
Moderator note: moved post to appropriate board and edited subject to match content.

Answer:G530 Type 4446 display problems

hi flstf21,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
What I would do first in this scenario is to attach an external monitor. If the display is ok, I would replace the LCD cable that can be ordered here and see the LCD ribbon replacement guide here, or video guide here.

Hi, It's a strange issue. FullHD : 1920 x 1080HalfHD (HD) : 1280 x 720 My Windows display properties are set to FullHD.DirectX diagnostics also show it as FullHD. However, as strange as it may seem, the output is not FullHD. The best known way for me to test was to go to browsers that "show my screen resolution". They are accurate and I have been using it for quite some time now, being a web developer that I am.Now, all of those websites refer the screen resolution as 1280x720. Another way to check the resolution is to pull out the browser developer tools, drag to change the browser width and check the changing screen resolution. Can anyone with a similar model confirm this behaviour?Any suggestions or tools that I can use to check the screen output instead of just relying on the browsers?

When I boot up without a connection to an external monitor I experience some display issues with text sizing of certain objects within certain applications (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio).  In these applications parts of the User Interface display perfectly.   Other parts of the same application will have vastly oversized objects and text.  And, in another application the text is greatly undersized in certain portions of this app. When I boot up while connected to an external monitor everything displays perfectly on the external monitor.   This happens without making any changes whatsoever to system display setting or application configuration settings.  If I disconnect the external monitor the X1's internal monitor still displays everything perfectly.   But if restart while disconnected from an external monitor I experience the same display issues as described in the 1st paragraph. I don't think this problem was always there, but  I cannot say for sure.  It just got so annoying that I finally decided to write to the forum today.   I would guess that the problem has been this way for 1-2 months. The Lenovo System Update app tells me that everything is up to date.    Is there some setting or perhaps driver that needs to change? Tim

The semi-odd thing about it is #1-same type of popup on both ie & my Chrome browsers; #2- I hadn't downloaded/installed anything around then; #3 I havenot been able to find their source; #4- Have not found any scan (malwarebytes, Panda, pcpitstop, etc) that seems to locate it, nor does my Winpatrol. The popup windows vary in advertisers, but most frequent is for the game "Big Farm". They are always fullsized page & open in a new window (not just a new tab), without my regular menu/toolbar, etc on top. I did notice a little icon right before the url it shows at very top, clicked it & got a menu-thing showing the permissions of the settings, etc & I could click to view cookie data (in which I was thinking "yippee I got it", lol)... I can "remove" & "block", however each time I can make sure I do all of the however it doesn't seem to help because in a little bit "poof" it comes up just as before! Of course it can get irritating!
Now, as of 2days ago I've suddenly gotten a new & BIGGER annoyance...

Hi all, I got today Lenovo S510 model: 10KW005NAX I want to get a cable or adapter to connect Displayport to HDMI 1080p LCD I have from before There seem to be passive and active converters, what I understood from online is that if I have DP++ PC I can get a passive converter or else I need an active converter. I don't know if cables can be active and passive too?For example: Amazon linkSo the description says source can be DP or DP++, so it has a chip inside it? so it's active? So... can anyone tell me what is my displayport type (Lenovo S510) ? and maybe shed some light on what I need to get clear picture to HDMI in? Appreciate your help

so, a few years back i read a magazine that said to change the type of computer in device manager to standard pc because it made the computer run a little better or faster.

so now i've got my laptop and i've noticed it getting slower and thought that i would do this... VERY BAD MOVE!!!

i can still boot windows and everything - it meant that i had to let the computer reinstall all of the drivers for my hardware - but i have noticed in the device manager now that there are two instances of 'standard pc', there is also a new section titled 'other devices' with about 15 devices that seem to have no driver for them - some mention 'ISA' so i am guessing that changing to standard pc means that windows thinks my laptop is now a desktop pc with ISA slots???

i find that when i put my laptop lid down the thing shuts down, when i press the power button it turns off straight away (doesn't even shut down!). i had had the laptop configured for ages to do nothing when i closed the lid and give me shut down options when i pressed the power button. i look in power options and i can only cinfigure the monitor screen and hard disk power off options - every other option is not available. when i do bring up the shut down options i can no longer choose standby.

i have also realised that i can not turn on my wireless connection - i've tried all sorts to get it to work with no avail! the laptop is an acer ferrari and when i call up the manager app... Read more

My main notebook is a T60 type 1951. The backlight (or the inverter) is faulty (the screen has a red hue, and if I operate it at anything higher than the lowest brightness setting, the backlight just cuts out), and I need to send the machine back for repair (thankfully it's still under warranty). I have a spare machine, a T60 type 2007, and I am wondering if I can just plug the hard drive from the faulty machine into the spare one without any risk of screwing anything up, or of anything not working. I've looked on the net to see if I could figure out what the difference is between the two types, but I've not had any success. The only apparent difference between the two is that the faulty machine has a DVD multi-recorder (Mat**bleep**a DVD-RAM UJ-842 according to the device manager), and the spare one a DVD/CDRW (Mat**bleep**a DVD/CDRW UJDA755 according to the device manager). So: is it safe for me to simply remove the hard drive from the faulty machine before returning it for repair and simply swapping it for the drive currently in the spare machine? Many thanks in anticipation!

Answer:Swapping hard drive from T60 type 1951 to T60 type 2007

The biggest difference between the two is the fact that 1951 has Intel integrated graphics, while 2007 has ATi dedicated GPU. You'll have to load the video drivers if you're intent on using this drive, but it shouldn't bluescreen on you. Apart from that-and possibly wireless if the cards are different-you should be OK. Hope this helps.

Hi!I was wondering if anyone could help me with this issue. My G580 is still inside the warranty and started showing this flickering lines and areas of the screen that are a complete mess. I am trying to request a service to get it fixed but I am asked for a machine type, model type, and serial number. I found the serial number but the form keeps complaining that it should be a maximum of 9 characters (and mine has 10). And for the machinge type and model type, I just can't find them. There's nothing on the sticker showing a model like it is shown in the help section. Can anyone help me please? Thank you!

Answer:G580 - Can't find machine type, model type, and SN seems to be wrong?

Hi afm, welcome to the forums,
 
have you had a look under the battery?  Quite often the sticker detailing the information will be there, it can also be found on the box if you still have it or on the first screen after entering BIOS.

I set up an Outlook account on a new-to-me laptop. I had been unable to download email for several months, since I didn't have a computer. I had been saving the emails I wanted to keep and had planned on downloading them into my new computer. After setting up the account, it appeared the system automatically downloaded all of my email from the server. I know this is default behavior which I turn off. So I went through that process, double-checked to see that all the email was downloaded, and went out to my server.

I discovered that what I thought were copies of the emails were left on the servier. I didn't want that to happen. I dug around to find the location that I have used many times to do this, and couldn't remember or find the location to make this change. So I came to Seven Forums. I saw the step-by-step instructions...go to the account, select it, click change, click advanced and uncheck the box that says "Leave a copy of email on server". When I went to the advanced dialog box for changing accounts, I discovered there wasn't any such box. I dug around some more, decided to subscribe here and ask why mine was different.

In the mean time, since all the email was downloaded to my computer, I went back out to my server, deleted all the email, and purged the trash. Then I went back to my Oullook and discovered all the email that I had "downloaded" was gone. After digging some more and callling my ISP service desk, I discovered that ... Read more

Answer:Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, w... Read more

Since about 4 weeks both laptops startup extremely slow, whereby the 7542ZG is slower than the P273-M.It can take more than 20 minutes before the 5742ZG responds on (mouse) commands in a normal way. The P273-M is quicker, but also significantly slower than before. Both laptops react in a similar way during startup. CPU and RAM usage drop off after a few minutes, but there remains  a high level of disk I/O on both laptops. After the harddisk I/O becomes normal, both laptops operate in a normal way for the rest of the time. Both laptops I have upgraded to Windows 10 a few months ago and both worked ok. My impression is that after the latest Windows 10 update to build 10.0.10586 startup has become so slow. Checked Taskmgr on harddisk activity at startup and found the following (same for both laptops):Service Host: local system (network limitations)Service Host: local service (network limitations)Service Host: local systemare responsable for disk I/O of 90 to 100% during 10 to 15 minutes at every startup.Both laptops are "cleaned" regularly by running Privazer. Also the list of startup programs in Windows auto start is very limited. No virusses and malware found. Also used Windows Problem Solver, but nothing found. Also done nothing "special" with both laptops, indicating to me it has something to do with the Windows 10 update(s).Does anyone has an idea?
