I'm on a 3 year old ibm thinkpad t42. Recently I've been having problems with screen resolution. Mainly 2 things: 1) Lower resolution screens decrease in size (and centered, the rest is filled with black) instead of making the images bigger. This applies to everything, whether it be a program (such as a game) that decreases my resolution, or even the windows boot screen. 2) Switching between monitors (laptop monitor -> projector) and back sometimes freezes my screen. Everything goes black as if it is hibernating, and does not come back. I have to manually restart the laptop. I was convinced it was a driver problem, and updated my driver from the ibm website. However it seemed that the new driver gave my computer fits as even icons were improperly displayed. I did reformatted my computer and restored the factory settings using the recovery and restore cd's that came with my computer. This should have (and did) reinstall the driver. However, the problem persisted. I have inclination to go into bios and check the hardware settings, however, I'm convinced this is a WinXP problem b/c my ibm loading screen displays correctly in low resolution, but the windows boot screen immediately following it shrinks to like 1/4 of the screen size. Any ideas? I have seen this problem before as I've seen my friend's computers shrink the size of a game when it loads, and they don't know why. But I have no idea how to fix it.
