760LD LCD 640x480 or 800x600

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:16 pm

Can somebody confirm that 760LD has a 640x480 TFT LCD. On Thinkwiki it shows 640x480 in one place and 800x600 in another place. I pretty sure its 640x480 TFT. I want one but I don`t wan`t DSTN or 800x600.

I have a complete lid with XGA (1024x768) screen that's suited for a 760E or 760EX.
Don't know it that would fit yours.
PM me if interested.

I don`t actually have a 760LD but I would like one eventually but I want to confirm that it has the 640x480 LCD because I won`t have to deal with old applications scaling wrong in 800x600 from 320x200 and I want the CD-ROM drive.

Basically I want a machine with 365CD/755CD specs but without the rarity.

A few years ago I attached the 800x600 display from a ThinkPad 760E to a ThinkPad 760L. You'll get a picture but with some distortion and it won't be usable and you won't be able to use all of the pixels of the higher resolution display.

I had a similar issue when I tried attaching an 800x600 display from a 755CX on a 755CD; got distortion and could not display properly even though I was using a Pentium board; interestingly, the DX4/100 board accepted the 800x600 display but AFAICT no 755CE ever shipped with 800x600 from the factory (unless it was a CTO option?), so I'd think the enhanced video board is just not compatible with the 800x600 panel :(

As far as I know, the 755CX is the only member of the 755 series to support an 800x600 display. Also, FWIW, on the later PCI based 760s, you could replace the 800x600 display with a 1024x768 panel if you also replaced the video board with the appropriate part. That being said, you might be able to use an 800x600 display on a 760LC if you also replace it's video board with one from a 760CD. Don't quote me on that though as I have way more experience with the later PCI-bus 760s (E, X) then I do the older VESA Local Bus models (C, L).

Not particularly. The L and LD were marketed to schools and government agencies. They're pretty much de-tuned 760C/CDs with smaller displays that only ran at 640x480 and in lieu of the mWave audio/modem combo, they have an ESS AudioDrive (that can be a plus or minus depending on who here you talk to and what OS you run).

I wish the 760XL had a 'XL' screen. That would be cool.

IK about the 765L but it doesn't say XL in the Model :)

On that note, a 760XL probably performs better than a 760ED

Well no kidding, the 'X' is third gen vs 'E' second gen. It was 1997, computer updated extremely quickly unlike today(as you probably already know)
