    Has anyone been able to achieve external monitor support on their notebook? Shortly before the new year, I was able to get get a nice Leopard install completed on my ThinkPad T60p (v5250), including QE/CI support using drivers provided in this and other threads. The main sticking point though was getting the VGA out on the T60p working with my Dell 2407WFP monitor. I gave up after about a week of trying various methods, but still feel I must have missed a simple step along the way. In either case, I'd be interested to know if others have been successful getting an external monitor hooked up and running the proper resolution, whether it be on a T60p, or other notebooks. I'm sure the procedure is quite similar regardless of model. Thanks, Jason

    Does this method provide external monitor support?

    This may or may not help, but try hitting FN + F7 a few times and see if you get anything other than the blue screen. When I was attempting to get my Dell 2407WFP working with the T60p, I ran into a blue screen a few times on the notebook's internal monitor.

    I didn't have any trouble updating to 10.5.1 straight from Apple Software Update. You can grab the extentions from finetuned's post I linked to earlier, but here's the link on RapidShare: http://rapidshare.com/files/74577871/ATIv5250_kexts.zip.html

    I'd go for it, it's definitely been a much better experience than Tiger. I'm running BrazilMac with PC EFI 8. I stopped short of getting battery and power management working, both of which I read are possible however. I don't think sleep support is likely though, given limitations in the way PC EFI works, but I could be wrong there. So far, the biggest annoyance has been that I haven't been able to get external monitor support working, whether through my docking station, or the VGA out port on the left side of the T60p. I really need either of those for this to become a productive work machine, as I use it for software development. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions. I ran into a few small issues here and there, but nothing I wasn't able to overcome with a lot of research on these and other forums.

    This is all under 10.5.1, but should work under 10.5 as well. To be clear though, others have done all the hard work on this. I've tested out a number of the methods posted in this thread and others I've come across. I ended up using the kexts posted by finetuned, as he and I have the exact same notebook configuration from what I can tell. QE/CI is supported. Jason

    I've been able to get pretty flawless results on my ThinkPad T60p (FireGL v5250) using the methods described in this and other related threads. I wanted to express my thanks to everyone for providing such valuable information to the community. It's much appreciated. After having had much success with my notebook's LCD panel, I have been trying to get my Dell 2407WFP working as an external monitor using the VGA output on the T60p. Thus far, I've had pretty bad results. Leopard will detect the 2407WFP, including it's proper supported resolutions, yet I can only get the panel to display a blue screen, nothing more. It's been frustrating, considering I've been able to get everything else on the ThinkPad working. I'd be grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction on this. From searching the forums and reading countless threads, external display support seems to be a sticking point for a number of people. Thanks, Jason
