Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

Adjustment of the resolution on an IBM Thinkpad 2373

\015 The detail on the screen is far too small for my eyes (77yrs old!!!) and I need to reduce the resolution. Whenever I do this the screen reduces in size so that I end up with a small patch in the middle, which defeats the whole purpose! I have tried changing the DPI setting which did help somewhat but card games etc were not good.\015\012\015\012Thanks, Bill\015\012\015\012Ps I'm not sure whether I have a T40, T41, or a T42!\015

Answers :

You can adjust your Screen Resolution, by Right clicking on your Desktop - then left click on Properties - here depending on your operating system (windows XP or Vista), you can go to the Display Properties, Settings Tab, there you can adjust your Screen Resolution to the less (lowest) possible number which might be 800x600 or maybe even 640x480 - either way, lower it down to make the icons and text larger in appeareance, this will effect the outcome of many of your applications, but most will allow you to scroll as necessary to view the entire window if necessary.
