24" display, WUXGA

I am thinking of buying a The Dell™ UltraSharp™ 2407WFP monitor.
It says my computer must support WUXGA resolution (1920x1200). Will my power mac G4 do that?

I have a Powermac G4 1.25ghz.
This is what system profiler says under graphics:
Chipset Model: ATY,RV250
Type: Display
Bus: AGP
Slot: SLOT-1
VRAM (Total): 64 MB
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
Device ID: 0x4966
Revision ID: 0x0001
ROM Revision: 113-99702-131

  • Old W500 Takes ~10 minutes to get to POST on startup

    Hello,
    I recently started having some trouble with my old trusty W500. Here are my specs:
    W500 4058 CTO
    CPU: Core 2 Duo T9400
    RAM: 4 GB (2 x 2 GB)
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
    HDD1: 128 GB OCZ SSD
    HDD2 (ultrabay): 500 GB WD Black HDD
    Graphics: FireGL v5700 (+ integrated graphics, switchable)
    Display: WUXGA (1920 x 1200)
    Here are my symptoms:
    - PC is completely shut down
    - Press power button >>> AC, Battery, and Power LEDs are on, but the screen is completely black and does not appear to be on at all. I can hear cooling fans.
    - After 30 seconds to 1 minute, the bluetooth LED turns on. Screen is still black.
    - Roughly 9-10 minutes later, I see the diagnostics POST screen. Usually, the text flashes by and this screen is gone after a few seconds. However, it appears to linger on each entry for a bit, but shows no errors.
    - After POST, I see a black screen with the blinking cursor in the upper left corner for maybe 30 seconds
    - Then windows starts up as normal. Computer runs fine.
    - When I try to shut down, windows shuts down, but my battery, AC, and power LEDs stay on, and the fan stays on. I have to hard shut-down to get the fan and the power LED to turn off completely. However, doing a restart from windows works fine without having to press the power button (though I still see the above symptoms on the ensuing start-up).
    Here is what I have tried so far:
    - Originally, I thought this was a power/battery issue, so I replaced my original battery with an Anker branded battery (works great so far). Also, my original AC adapter had a break in the cord somewhere that was causing it to lose power if I moved the cord, and since my battery was essentially dead, the computer would shut off. I was worried that it was my motherboard causing the power issue because the original battery wasn't even being charged or discharged, but the new battery charges fine and powers the computer just fine. New AC adapter works great as well. None of this affected startup.
    - I have re-seated the RAM. No effect.
    - I have removed the ultra-bay and ultra-bay drive. No effect.
    - I have cleared CMOS memory. No effect.
    What should I try next? Anyone have any idea what this sounds like? Are there any tests I should perform and report back?
    Thanks for your help.
    W500, WUXGA

    Memtest 86+ passed with no errors after 1 full run. I removed the SSD and HDD, it still did not quickly POST. I removed the RAM (first one stick, then the other). No change, except with both DIMMs removed I did get the 1-3-3-1 beep error code (as expected). What does this tell us?
    It's not the SSD/HDD/RAM/OS. Perhaps the system board? What might be wrong with it? I want to reiterate, once I'm booted and I'm up and running, everything works just fine! Although, I can't seem to switch to integrated graphics for some reason. Perhaps that is a clue? Or a red herring.
    What can I try next?

  • T61p Wuxga display refresh rates

    Hi!
    I suspect that my GNU/Linux installation sets the wrong refresh rates for my 15.4" WUXGA 1920x1200 display. It sets the vertical rate at 50, which seems very low.
    I can't seem to find what the correct rates are in the documentation that came with the computer. Does anyone know? If you don't know the horizontal rate, I'm still interested in the vertical rate. What does Vista set? (I removed Vista, so I can't check myself.)
    Please help!

    Adamaxus -- searching the web I find a lot of such claims. I didn't know this. But I do know from my own experience that vertrefresh has a huge impact on my stationary lcd monitor. Are there different kinds of lcds that behave differently in respect to vertrefresh?
    Anyway, I don't have any flicker on my T61p screen. It only bothers me that xorg and nvidia-settings report different refresh rates, and that some GL applications might get the wrong info and slow down because of it.This is one of the explanations floating around the net for slow gl desktops on T61p.
    If 50 is the default refresh rate, I would think that xorg is right and nvidia-settings is wrong (it reports 60).

    Hi 
    The screen on my notebook [HP PAVILION DV6T-7000 (A5F76AV)] does not have good vewing angles, it glares alot. Is it possible to upgrade the screen? I think it is a stantard HD type with 1366 x 768 px resolution, and I'm hoping to upgrade it to a WUXGA anti glare type screen with 1920 x 1200 or 1080  px resolution.
    I checked on hp'partsurfer and I guess this is what i'm looking for: ( 682068-001SPS-DSPLY HU 15.6 FHD AG ALU DSC )

  • How do i connect my Fujitsu Tablet + mac Pro to Apple Cinema Display 23'?

    Dear Mac users
    thanks in advance for your help.
    I currently own:
    • Fujitsu T 4220 (tablet) – Mobile Intel 965 Express – 60 Hertz – goes up to 1680*1050 (guess SXGA) – (it has the following other supported resolutions: 1400*1050, 1280*1024, 1280*768, 1280*720, 1024*768, and 800*600)
    • Mac Pro
    • Apple Cinema Display 23’
    What I would like to do is, please refer to the jpeg posted on http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3234336204/, connect – at the same time – my tablet pc and my Mac Pro to the 23' Apple Cinema Display and switch (when I need) from tablet to MacPro using the same 23’ ACD. Top would be to be able to switch for one to the other while they’re both switched on. Usually on 2 pc’s with vga I’d use a switch A → B (in the jpeg it would be I → E) with a selector.
    Have been reading different posts such as: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=8000641&#8000641 or http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=6530475&#6530475 or
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=7417258&#7417258
    + others on the net and have (hopefully) understood that:
    a) from Vga to Dvi I need a converter such as Geffen’s or similar
    b) the problem with ACD 23’ is that it has only 3 resolutions: 1024*640, 1280*800 or 1920*1200
    In the attached image I guessed a connection in order to connect – at the same time – both the machines to the 23’ ACD:
    1) my fujitsu tablet (i in the image) has to be connected, with a Vga cable (h), to the Vga → Dvi converter (g).
    2) from the Vga → Dvi converter (g) I need to connecto to the Dvi switch (c)
    3) easier is connecting the Mac Pro (e), since I only need a Dvi cable (d) to connecto to the Dvi switch (c)
    4) the Dvi switch (c) will then be connected to the 23’ ACD with a Dvi cable
    Now, my questions are:
    a) is the solution described above (Vga cable (h) to the Vga → Dvi converter (g)) a good solution or should I use, instead, a docking statione that comes with a Fujitsu Port Replicator (FPCPR65) which has a 1 x DVI-D port?
    b) Given the 3 resolution accepted by the 23’ ACD (1024*640, 1280*800 or 1920*1200), I do not understand if I can use my tablet through a Vga to Dvi Converter and at which resolution (my tablet has the following other supported resolutions: 1680*1050, 1400*1050, 1280*1024, 1280*768, 1280*720, 1024*768, and 800*600).
    c) Is there a way, also using an external video card or converter, to bring my resolution from 1680*1050 to 1920*1200? (the 16:10 ratio is in fact the same = WXGA (1280x800), WXGA+ (1440x900), WSXGA+ (1680x1050), WUXGA (1920x1200)
    d) Talking about Vga → Dvi converter (g), am aware of the gefen product. Can you please list some others that might be good as well?
    e) And how about the DVI switch? Any will work? Any particular suggestion?
    Thank you very much for your help.
    If you have any other suggestion, please let me know.
    Regards,
    Emil

  • Quad display resolution?

    I am thinking about upgrading from my current x200t to something with optimus to do the following quad set-up
    ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 Quad Display Configuration:
    1st Display: Active ThinkPad display
    2nd Display: VGA analog monitor attached to the ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 - 170W (4338) VGA analog port.
    3rd Display: DisplayPort or DVI digital monitor attached to the ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 - 170W (4338) DisplayPort or DVI digital port (left side pair).
    4th Display: DisplayPort or DVI digital monitor attached to the ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 - 170W (4338) DisplayPort or DVI digital port (right side pair).
    does this mean I can run the thinkpadp display, one 24" at 1920x1200 via VGA and two 30" at 2560x1600 via DisplayPort?

    well the T410, T510 with Optimus can support that, i haven't heard may people using 2 x 30 inch WQXGA resolution + 1 x WUXGA. Most people i know whom this setup uses 3 x 24 inches.
    Depending on what you do, you may want to try the newer T420, T520, which can support internal display + displayport out at WQXGA + WUXGA on the VGA without the dock installed.
    The new W520 should also support optimus, but most official resources said that it support only 3 monitors.

  • Brush icon not displaying correctly

    Hi folks,
    I just installed CS4 on a lovely new Dell notebook with WUXGA display (1920x1200) and am having a problem that I have never seen before. When the brush tip is small (up to 35 px at 100%)  I see the entire circle defining it, but as I move into larger and larger tip sizes the circle starts to disappear from the bottom right, becoming just a smaller and smaller circular fragment until it disappears entirely at around 300 px. If I select the center crosshair, this also disappears around 200px (when only a small circular crescent is left), and then reappears at around 400px (minus any trace of the circle).
    It is obviously some sort of display issue: if I change the image size the behavior is the same when the circle is the same size onscreen, so it is the display size and not the absolute pixel size which determines it. This happens whether I choose normal or full-size tip.
    Has anyone experienced this? It is not only annoying, it is positively serious, since at certain sizes I cannot even tell where or how large the brush is.
    Clear type on or off makes no difference. I have not noticed any odd display behavior with any other program.
    Any suggestions most welcome.
    Toby

    This was a very common fault in the early days of CS4.
    You need to update to Version 11.0.1 and get the latest video drivers.
    You might have to experiment with OpenGL settings in the preferences too.

  • Supported flat panel displays for an ATI Rage 128 Pro/G4 500

    I originally was using an Apple 21" CRT display with my G4/500 until the display's picture tube failed. I am now looking to purchase a flat panel w/DVI, using my G4's DVI video port and the Rage 128 Pro card. I have found conflicting information on resolutions supported by the ATI card. I am looking at a Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1-inch Wide Aspect Flat Panel LCD, and the requirements indicate that my system must be able to support WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050). A 24" version of the Dell monitor requires the support of WUXGA resolution (1920x1200). WIll either of these flat panel monitors work with my G4? If not, what specs do I need to look at to determine compatibility? Thanks.
    Apple G4 500   Mac OS X (10.3.1)   ATI Rage 128 Pro Graphics Card

    Hi JBernstein,
    Karl,
    I greatly appreciate your efforts to resolve my
    question.
    No worries, Mate!
    To address a question you posed earlier, no, my G4
    did not come with a ADC port. I have both VGA and
    DVI-D ports on my G4/500 (Graphite) with the Rage 128
    Pro ADP card, which is 16 mb and 2x.
    From that, I would infer that you computer is not ADC enabled.
    It was the Genius at
    the Apple Store who mentioned the Radeon 9000 card as
    a replacement. but he also suggested that the current
    20" Apple display would work with my G4 ... we tried
    that today, and the OS would not launch and power the
    display. SO, we must replace the card, or live with
    small displays.
    Yes, the ATY 128 Pro generally does not have enough grunt to power the larger displays.
    I did find a number of Radeon 9600 Pro Mac Edition
    video cards on eBay, but most had a published spec of
    4X, and the response to whether it was backwards
    compatible with the 2x capability in my G4/500 is
    that it will not work. Is that true?
    All the information I have (via the ATI website) does not specifically state that the 9600 card will support AGP 2X. Other ATI cards that do support 2X have this specifically stated in the information. Therefore, there is no garauntee that the 9600 card will support 2X. Until I receive information that someone has used this card in an AGP 2X computer with success, I cannot advise trying to use it.
    I have not
    confirmed the Radeon 8500 as yet, but as you might
    imagine, it is frustrating to get conflicting
    responses.
    The ATI Radeon 8500 will work in your computer (as, partially, will the 9000 - refer to my earlier posting).
    Perhaps you might address a different question ... is
    there any place within Apple that I can go, even with
    paying a fee for services, that would definitively
    provide an absolute solution to an upgrade type
    question, complete with exact part number AND
    guarantee that the information is quite accurate? Why
    wouldn't Apple provide some type of infomration on
    replacement/upgrade path for older products (geez ---
    the G4/500 Graphite isn't even on the legacy products
    list yet) so that the customer can invest and upgrade
    without going through a challenging process to get
    the right information? The information I've turned up
    is vague and not geared towards solutions like this.
    Apple, for all sorts of reasons (legal and commercial), is loath to provide "official" advice on the use of any third party upgrade hardware on their products. Moreover, discussions on the morality of this is probably against the terms and conditions of this discussion forum.
    I'm all ears as to how to move forward with this G4
    with a replacement card, if that is possible.
    The way I see it, you need either an ATI 8500/9000 if your only desired upgrade is the capacity to run larger displays, or an ATI 9800 is you wish to do gaming, graphics and be able to make full use of all the new Tiger graphics facilities.
    Cheers!

  • Widescreen Display through VGA

    Hi everyone!
    Ok, got a new monitor today (Samsung SyncMaster B2230) and linked it upto my iMac (Late 2009 running 10.6.6) and all of the resolutions that it is offering are ins 4:3, not 16:9 (native res of the monitor is 1920x1080). Tried installing SwitchResX but no luck with that either.
    Thought this was wierd so connected it upto my macbook, and it displayed the 1920x1080 resolution (16:9) that I was after - so the problem isn't with the monitor or the cable or the adaptor
    Also booted into Windows 7 on the iMac to see if it could get the resolution to go to 1920x1080, but it was only doing the 4:3 ones as well (tops out at 1600x1200)
    I THINK that the problem is with the ATI card in the iMac being annoying and not wanting to do widescreen through VGA, if anyone has any ideas/advice on what might work to get this sorted please get in touch.

    Some general background info that may help reduce the confusion (or at least help explain why it exists):
    • As explained in this Wikipedia article,"VGA" specifically refers to an analog video computer display standard introduced by IBM in the 1990's with a resolution no greater than 640 X 480 pixels, but in common use "VGA" has become a generic term for any of the modern analog video computer display resolution standards that use the analog VGA connector, or for the connector itself.
    • Several of these modern analog computer display standards define 16:10 widescreen formats (see for example this Wikipedia list), such as the "WUXGA" (1920×1200) format.
    • However, there is no common analog computer display standard that defines a "native" 16:9 widescreen format. The 1920x1080 widescreen format is the native one for HDTV's 1080p & 1080i signals, but they are digital formats with no direct analog counterpart.
    • To make things that much more complicated, analog video signals of the same resolution may use slightly different parameters for such arcane things as horizontal & vertical timing & sync, & different monitors or graphics cards may & generally do accept or supply only a subset of all the possible ones.
    • Because there are so many different variations in the analog standards, "plug & play" methods (in both Mac & Windows implementations) may not offer all the possible ones, especially those that involve non-native pixel mapping. For Macs, SwitchResX or a similar utility allows users to experiment with all the possible graphics card values it supports; however, there is no guarantee that the monitor will support the desired ones.
    • The manuals for most monitors & HDTV's include a chart of the parameters for each display mode their VGA ports support, although many are incomplete. It can be very challenging to find any set of values that work other than the "plug & play" ones, but the chart values at least will give you a clue about what may work -- only values on the chart will work so entering them in the utility & making guesses about any that are missing is the best you can do.
    • Because there are far fewer digital video display standard variations, using a monitor's or HDTV's digital connection(s) such as DVI or HDMI usually is much easier, as well as often producing a sharper image. Since all contemporary Macs support digital video out (with the appropriate adaptor), that should be your first choice whenever possible.

  • HP HDX 16 Display Not Working

    My 3.3 year old HDX 16T-1000 CTO Premium Notebook PC's display no longer functions.  Upon cold boot, the display nearly always comes on but flickers at about 1/2 brightness.  If I twist the display, sometimes I can get it to come on at full brightness.  Upon letting go though, the display goes black.  The only way I can get it to turn back on is to put the notebook to sleep and then wake it up.  The display comes back on for about 2 seconds (mostly at 1/2 brightness) and then goes black again.
    I do get a normal display when I connect to an HDTV via the HDMI output.  HP's techs had me download and reinstall the chipset, NIVIDIA video driver and BIOS software.  This made no difference whatsoever.
    Since I can get the display to turn on intermittently, could the problem be just a worn video cable or something more serious?
    Thanks for your help!!!

    Don't buy a used screen, you don't know how many miles are on it and they can very can become scratched getting out of there. (as I said it's not easy).
     Did you check what your native resolution is, I would be very curious to know ?
     Here are some from e-bay.
     http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-LCD-SCREEN-HP-HDX16-HDX16t-WUXGA-1920x1080-NEW-2CCFL-/160432003564?pt=LH_...
     Yours is probably this.
     http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-HP-HDX16-X16-16-Laptop-Glossy-LCD-LED-Screen-OEM-Samsung-LTN160AT02-WXGA...
     This one is interesting, the seller claims that he has a cable to go from CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent light) to LED (light emitting diode). This is not possible as far as I know, but maybe something has changed, I am going to look into this and report back. (may take a few days)
     Its resolution is WXGA, which is 1366 x 768.
     If this would work, you wouldn't need an inverter any more and it comes with a new cable, the down side is that it\s not 1920 X 1080.
     http://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-16-Laptop-LCD-Screen-LTN160HT03-WXGA-1920x1080-Glossy-hp-hdx-16-/220...
     This one is CCFL 1920 x 1080, but it's only a single lamp, from what his picture shows anyway. There are two wires coming out of the bottom of the screen _ red and white. Which is for one lamp, if it had both red and white & black and blue then it would have two lamps.
     http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-LCD-Screen-HP-HDX-X16T-1000-WUXGA-FHD-DUO-CCFL-/120697754048?pt=LH_Defaul...
     Here's one with a 2 year warrantee !
     Some of them ship from China and that's OK because they're all made in China anyway, in fact you probably get a better deal getting where they're made.
     3 years for a laptop before a component goes (even a major one like the screen) isn't bad. There are many people here where the thing quits just out side the warrantee. My old dv7 that I gave to my mother is still plugging along and it must be at least 5 years old. All she does with it is surf the net and buy things.
     My custom built dv8 was close to 3 g's and the WiFi card went a couple of weeks ago and it's now a few years old (guessing).
     Things made in China can be good or bad, it depends how the manufacturer (HP) directs them to build it and how much money (at cost) goes into it. China may have a bunch of screens available that may look the same on the outside, but the materials and build quality may be different.
     To save costs and make money HP may choose the cheaper ones.
     I don't have any proof of this, but it probably is the way things are run.
     HP did not become a multi billion dollar company by putting the most expensive component's in their devices.
     Also note that the link I gave you for the cable is a used one, not new. It's getting difficult to find a new cable for the HDX 16 series and the ones that supply it want any where from 50 to 100 bucks.

  • Z61p 9540CTO Advanced Dock to get DVI-D working at 1080p [1920x1080] WUXGA

    Please help it is difficult to call Lenovo support and get answers--so this forum is my last resort.

    QUESTION 2:
    If I upgrade to the ThinkPad Ultrabay Enhanced Blu-ray DVD Burner p/n 43N3200 in the Adv. Dock bay, will I be able to watch BR DVD's correctly or not? (assuming I have the right software player)
    Other: The Z61p has XP Pro SP2, BIOS 2.22, Adv. Dock that includes DVI-D graphics pass through port.  I am leary of XPSP3 or Vista based on other negative threads.
    Potential issues:
    1. [This info is new to me and was not available at time of purchase]  I just possibly learned the Z61P does not "support" Advanced Dock DVI-D: True or False? so will DVI-A or DVI-I function in Adv. Dock? If so what resolution?  
    Ref: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-61232 
    2.  [This info is new to me and was not available at time of purchase, and Q7300 was not yet available] In the Thinkpad Blue-ray Users Guide it says only the Nvidia Quadro 7300 "supports" 1920 by 1080 without jerking video.  Is this true?   The

    PS. Undocked on a plane, I also want be able to watch BR DVD's on the internal 15.4" LCD that supports 1920 by 1200. I have several 9 cell batteries already.
    I found several conflicting threads with above info with the exact same video card and Adv. Doc that I have except it's about a T not a Z....http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=T_Series_Thinkpads&thread.id=4832

    I don't have any response for your first question, but I might be able to give an answer to your second one.
    I have the same laptop with 2GB of RAM and recently took the plunge and bought the Ultrabay Enhanced Blu-ray Burner despite the fact that it explicitly said that it would only work with some R series models. When I initially tried it, Blu-ray playback was unacceptably jerky. Then I discovered that there is a place in the ATI Catalyst Center settings where you can set the video acceleration level of the graphics chipset. There are settings like "optimize for battery life", "optimize for balanced use",  and "optimize for performance". It defaulted to "optimize for battery life" (even in the highest battery profiles, for some reason). When I tried the highest setting, things were very smooth.
    I have to qualify my comments a little, though. My main aim in buying the drive was for watching high-def movies from the laptop on long overseas flights. For that reason, most of my experimentation has revolved around playing back movies from the ripped images of Blu-ray discs copied onto the hard drive. (I upgraded to a 320GB hard drive, just for this.) Under those conditions (i.e., playback from hard drive), I can even keep the laptop in the "maximum battery life" power profile and the ATI Catalyst setting to "optimize for performance" still gives me smooth playback with 10 to 20% CPU use. However, I'm not sure how this would be affected if you wanted to play straight from the optical drive. (Probably not much.)
    One other thing I should point out is that you may have to play with some settings to get the best image quality while watching Blu-ray discs. This is admittedly not so much a function of the drive itself but more of the software you'd be using and the graphics chipset. I tried the HQV high-def benchmark disc and the initial results were less than stellar. I was using PowerDVD software for Blu-ray playback (WinDVD was unable to play a Blu-ray disc image from the hard drive). Most of my image quality issue seemed to be related to deinterlacing. It turns out that PowerDVD has its own deinterlacing settings, and so does the ATI chipset. I believe I found the best combination by turning the deinterlacing off in the software and allowing it to happen only in the chipset. (Or vice versa; I can look it up to verify, if you need me to.)
    My beef with this drive now is finding a solution to give me drive letter access to rewritable Blu-ray discs. I've gotten used to the convenience of this for DVDs and CDs. The software situation for doing this is pretty murky. Nero 8 seems like it might be capable of doing this, but I don't have it and I'm not sure I'd like to buy it yet just for this feature. The other authoring software I already had (Roxio and Sonic DLA) is unable to treat a BD-RE disc like a drive letter, and the software bundled with the drive doesn't seem capable of this either (although it seems like it can write data to a BD-RE disc by defining an explicit session; the old-fashioned way). If you come across any solution for drive letter access to rewritable (or write-once) Blu-ray discs, let me know.

  • Dynadock WUXGA monitor resolution

    I have a SAMSUNG 730U3E laptop connected to the Toshiba Dynadock U3.0 and have several hardware items connected to the dynadock like network cable, wireless mouse and keayboard and BenQ 24" WUXGA monitor.
    I haven't updated my drivers since January 2014 which means i was on the v7.4.51587.0 (aka v7.5 M0) before i went to ugrade to the latest drivers. When i upgraded to the latest avaliable driver v7.7.59540.0 (aka v7.7M3) i noticed my monitor is forced into HD1080 resolution instead of the WUXGA. What's more, i didn't notice any WUXGA resolution avaliable for the monitor in either Windows 8.1 (64 bit) Control Panel options nor in the dynadock U3.0 options menu.
    I've tried with various (not all) v7.7 and v7.6 drivers. Every one i've tried missed the WUXGA resolution. Did the dynadock drop support for the WUXGA resolution?
    Is there any way how to force the WUXGA resoultion on the new dynadock drivers?
    I've currently reverted back to the v7.4 drivers which are mostly stable (with minor issues when i unplug my laptop from the dynadock which usually requires a restart to fix the resolution issue when i plug it back to the dock).

    Hi, James -
    Re the monitor resolution, try throwing away the files Display Preferences and Monitor Preferences (the latter is in a folder by the same name). Then restart, and redo any settings necessary in the Monitors control panel.
    Make sure the correct profile is selected for your monitor. That selection is made in the Monitors control panel, by clicking the Color button.
    Re the sleep function, what is the exact message given?
    Are you using the automatic sleep functions in the Energy Saver control panel? Or, are you using the Sleep item in the Special menu or the Control Strip?

  • T510 missing options for display resolution

    I am looking to order a T510.  Lenovo site does not show options for display resolutions any more. I need WUXGA, how do I verify this before placing an order?

    Hi vijpersonal,
    There is no T510 with WUXGA. WUXGA is 1920x1200, but the new Thinkpads got FHD which is 1920x1080. As far as i understand it's hard to get a T510 with FHD at the moment. Seems like Lenovo have some delivery problems for models with the FHD panel. If you search for FHD in this forum you can find a lot of discussions about that topic. I'm sure the FHD will be available soon, but don't know when that might happen. You can also get the W510 with the FHD panel and those should be possible to buy now.
    You can find the Thinkpad Notebooks pdf using this link: http://www.lenovo.com/psref/
    Then you can find detailed spec for a lot of Thinkpads. I don't think you will find any T510 with FHD at the moment though.
    Also i'm not sure where you are looking since i just checked shop.lenovo.com and for each of the models the resolution are specified.

  • Z61m: LCD panel replacement (WSXGA+ to WUXGA)

    I own ThinkPad Z61m (Type 9450-HAG). Unfortunately the LCD panel does not work any more (only top third of display works).
    I consider replacing of the LCD panel (WSXGA+, FRU no.: 13N7020).
    Is it possible to replace the original panel with WUXGA panel - 13N7198 or 13N7178?
    If it is possible, is it enough just to exchange the panels or it is also needed to replace other parts of notebook and/or upgrade BIOS or other software?
    Solved!

    It should work no problems. In fact, you could probably use your old inverter. CCFL backlit LCD screens use a two pin connector from the inverter to the LCD. This connector is the same accross most if not all manufacturers.
    I tried replacing a 15.4" WXGA LED backlit LCD with a WXGA+ CCFL backlit LCD. Now you might ask yourself, can I convert to LED backlit LCD. While it may be possible, I don't want to say yes just yet. Anyways, what I had to do is disassemble the LCD and remove the screen. I disassembled the original WXGA LCD and replaced it with the WXGA+ LCD. Too bad it didn't work. It wasn't because I had damaged it. The LCD originally didn't work. It had an awful display. I just wanted to know if it was possible.
    The conclusion is that these parts are quite interchangeable. CCFL backlit LCDs generally use the same connectors for both the backlight and display. I am not sure about LED backlit LCDs, but it would be understandable that the manufacturers maintain some kind of uniformity. After all, they produce these LCDs for all the laptop manufacturers.
