Are you using the latest video driver?

It sounds to me that you are using the video driver that was originally installed by Windows. You should install the latest NVIDIA/ATI driver instead.

I don't know anything about your specific laptop, but this IBM page seems to cover the video driver, as well as many others:

I still have a hunch that the problem is video driver related. You might be able to use a Vista driver from the link that I posted, but I would post a question on nvnews.net first, because that forum is for Nvidia users. I know that there are some laptop driver downloads available from third parties, but I'm not familiar enough to point you to them. You will find someone on that forum that is.
