OK, here's a an OT, I can't wait...

I have a seven year old IBM 760XL Laptop somebody
gave me for free with all the trimmings (with 2 different docking bays)
that likes to switch over to the VGA port every time it boots completely
up. The LCD panel is seen for the period right after power-on to the time
the OS starts. I haven't seen LCD control in the BIOS start-up
(powerswitch+F1) or in the Control Panel. I want to tell it to keep the LCD
display on always.

Perhaps someone has worked with this particular model?

Reply to me directly, if you intuit that this is not a true list question.

BTW this is mechanically a pretty interesting machine. You can
lift up the keyboard and change out any of this: Batteries,spares,
Floppy,CD,HD, and memory, all using no tools at all.

I have this laptop too and have never had this problem. You can switch using
a function key, FN+F3 I think. What happens if you toggle through the
LCD/external display options?
760XL is not a bad laptop because it does not have the crappy MWAVE stuff.
Only problems are the keyboard keys get hard to push due to wear.
