Intel Integrated Graphics - Changing Laptop Resolution

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, this is a strange request and I haven't seen it elsewhere in the forums.

I purchased an R60 Laptop on sale from Lenovo, and got a killer deal. This laptop runs great, Core Duo, 512mb DDR2, etc, really solid laptop for the price.

However, resolution is limited to 1024 x 768 within the Display Manger & Intels Display Manager. Now, I'd like to notch my resolution up to 1280 x 1024, something I know Intels integrated graphics supports, however I'm not quite sure if the actual monitor does.

Normally I'd leave it as be, but a good friend of mine who has about a dozen recent thinkpads, is telling me my monitor appears to be the same as the T Series laptop that supports higher resolutions.

Is there a way to safely attempt to increase the resolution to 1280 x 1024? The IBM Display manager overrides any changes I try to make, and afraid I could cause some issues.

I think you're out of luck:
http://www5.pc.ibm.com/us/me.nsf/webdocs-L/Data+Sheet:ThinkPad+R60+notebooks:English/$FILE/TPD01881-USEN-01.pdf
Check page 2, tech specs.

I assume you have either the 14.1" TFT XGA or the 15: TFT XGA screen. The native resolution of those screens it 1024 x 768.

sorry
