There is even a 14.1" 4:3 UXGA screen: Sharp LQ141X1LH01
Forum-member xyz put it in a T60, search the forum.

Re: WTB - T450 or maybe similar

Look for the exact part AUO B140HAN01.2 (matte), don't accept anything else! This would be FRU 04X0436 from a T440s, which would be a drop-in for your T440. All you need to do is remove the LCD-bezel (held with clips), remove 4 screws that hold the LCD-bezel-assembly, and remove the LCD-cable before...

And definitely open it up to remove the old thermal paste between CPU/GPU and fan, clean it up properly and apply fresh thermal paste.

Re: T500 keeps frying OS's.

I have had that exact same problem, even with brand new SSDs.
I could install W7 on them, but every boot had the 0x7B error.

Eventually I found this: https://tinyapps.org/blog/windows/20140 ... _swap.html
which works like a dream.

Re: WTB - T450 or maybe similar

Replace that crappy T440 clickpad with the touchpad with buttons from a T450.
And you can get IPS FHD screens for the T440 (same as T450).
For less than $100 you have a much improved T440, that is just as good as the T450/T460.
And definitely much cheaper!

Re: Anyone else ditching the Thinkpad?!

Even though I have loads of Thinkpads, I am usually on my desktop, using an external keyboard (UK-layout). Years ago I had a Northgate Omnikey 102 , exactly like this one. To this day I regret selling it. If I had a few bob to spare, I'd buy this one: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/...

Re: Deleting last post

I'm not sure but a possible limit might be: "your" last post in a thread can only be deleted, as long as you stay in that thread.

But if you can no longer delete your own post, you can always edit it and remove/replace what you want.

Re: T61 - Windows 10, Intel Turbo Memory Controller, UltraNav

In every T6x that I ever had (and there were dozens, if not hundreds), any Turbo Memory was removed due to malfunctioning sooner rather than later.
I have never noticed any difference with or without that POS.
Remove palmrest and keyboard, it's the small card under the far left KB-corner.

That sounds great, but are you sure? Perhaps you could post a link to your modded BIOS or EC, with instructions how to apply it?

Re: AC WiFi card to X230 (with modified BIOS flash)

That doesn't work, as nobody can (yet) remove the X240 wifi whitelist.
You'll have to stick with official Lenovo-approved wifi cards.

Burn any life-Linux on a CD or USB-stick and try that on the R51.
