IBM R51 LCD Screen won't start when undocked from docking station
Posted on 2006-03-25
I have an IBM R51 laptop with an IBM docking station and an external LCD monitor. I am using the most recent version of the IBM presentation director.
When docked the I just use the external monitor. When I remove the laptop from the dock, and try to toggle to the laptop LCD screen using the FN F7 command, the screen stays dark and I am not able to activate the screen. It is necessary to reboot to get screen running.
If I switch to the laptop screen before I remove the laptop from the docking station, all is well.
Should I be able to remove the laptop from the docking station and then toggle to the laptop screen? If so, what should I check?
