Re: T420s Multiple Monitor Issues

No, I believe I've used the same power supply the whole time. I did test a 135W supply with it just before I posted, and I didn't see any change.

Re: T420s Multiple Monitor Issues

I gave that a try and it simply limits me to two monitors. Choosing discrete mode disables the Intel GPU.

T420s Multiple Monitor Issues

Wow, it's been a while since I've been here! My trusty T420s has had an issue with my monitor setup and I've finally decided to do something about it. I have it on a Mini Dock 3 and use three external monitors connected to it. Monitor 1 is 1920x1080 and connects via DVI, monitor 2 is 1280x1024 and c...

Long time, no see!

I'm hoping to replace a cracked W530 keyboard bezel. The bezel will need to have spaces for the fingerprint reader and calibrator. Does someone have one of these?

WTB: Good OEM T420s battery

Hi all. My T420s' battery is on its way out after a couple years of use, so I'm in need of a replacement. I'm hoping to get one that's new or like new as far as full charge capacity and cycle count go. Does anybody have one to sell?

Thanks!

Just pay the price of shipping for the carrier of your choice, and they're yours. These are sealed from IBM. Some are new, some are IBM-refurbished. FRU is 91P7824. If anybo...

Why isn't a T420 slice battery able to be used with a T420s?

I've been trying to find an answer to the question, but I haven't been able to. Why is it that the slice battery that's offered for the T420 is incompatible with the T420s? The battery uses the docking port and both laptops share the same port. Is there some other difference, like the layout of anch...

Re: Pulling Backlight CCFLs From Dead Displays

From my experience replacing backlights, I've come to the conclusion that it's a better idea to simply go with a brand new backlight each time instead of salvaging old ones. When you use a salvaged backlight, you don't know how much use it has already seen and how much life it might have left. When ...
