IBM 600E Laptop

By guyetterfg ·
What makes the output display on either LCD or monitor appear garbled at 600X480 resolution and less so at 800X600 and 1024X768?

better graphics support/font support. The standard has moved from 640X480 to 800X600, note 640X480 not 600X480(that may be the problem or it may be whats necessary for lcd don't know can't tell ya). 800X600 is standard and fonts are built for that.

Drivers' compatibility with the OS (or the lack thereof). If you are not using the right driver for your OS, it could default to a standard driver that is not right for either the LCD or your external monitor.

For LCD Video drivers:
Go to: http://www.ibm.com/us/
Click on: Support & Downloads
Click on: ThinkPad
In the Enter model & type, enter: 2645-4AU
Click on: Go
Click on: Frequently Asked Questions
Click on: TPAD-MATRIX
Click on: ThinkPad 600, 600E, 600X Series
Click on: Video

DOwnload and install the latest Video drivers for your 600E and whichever OS you are using.

----
For your external monitor, check your monitor's manufacturer's website & device manager.

P.S. You could also have a video card or systemboard problem within the laptop itself (probably not the LCD because the external monitor also exhibits the same problem). This could be a hardware problem especially if "it used to work" and nothingOS-wise or hardware-wise has changed (ie. you have not recently changed any drivers and the video has been getting worse over time).

The pixel count is lower and changing the display prop for the scheme and effects will help some but they do look better at 800x600.
