Display Resolution Problem with ThinkPad T21
Posted on 2004-08-30
I recently bought 2 ThinkPads (T21). The disply does not fill the entire screen. I installed both Win2K and WinXP, and the problem is with both. I downloaded the latest device drivers from IBM.com and I updated the BIOS to the latest version provided by IBM. If I change the resolution to a higher setting, like 1280x1240, the screen fills, but the images are too small. At the 1024x768 setting, there are wide black borders around the visable display area and the imigas are still smaller than they should be. If I change the setting to "stretch" the video display, the display is larger (but does not completely fill the screen size) but the display is distorted. There are no visable problems with the drivers in Device Manager. I believe the problem is not OS-related, as it even exists using a Pre-Installation Enviroment Disk. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
