Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

SUCCESS! My X230 now has the FHD-mod. :banana: I blew my original X230 motherboard and the new PCB by making a silly soldering mistake. Trying to solder the sens-wire to capacitor #3, I hadn't realized my iron was still set at a temperature of ~420°F (~215°C) for doing some "heavy" soldering. It ne...

Re: WTB: T61p 14" 4:3

Much as I admire Andreas's T61p handiwork, I wouldn't call that a FrankenPad , but rather a Norse variant, aptly named LokiPad . The amount of modification required is worse than trying to assemble good old Frankenstein ! :lol: Just for fun, read this: https://frankenblogsite.wordpress.com/2017/04/0...

Re: SSD PCIe, M-sata and T400 + T500

Or get a (smaller/cheaper if you like) SSD plus an Ultrabay adapter for a 2nd HD and use the old (or a new) HD for storage.
Get an external USB-housing for that CD-drive that just came out, which you now can use on ANY PC/laptop with USB-port!

Looking to replace 5:4 monitor, but with what?

Currently I have a 5:4 19" HP LP1965 monitor with 1280x1024. Viewing angles are 178/178, almost identical to IPS. This is/was an excellent monitor, bought in March 2008, but it is slowly starting to show its age. I do mostly Forum web-browsing and programming on it. No gaming whatsoever, other than ...

Also look into Lenovo non-ThinkPad lines, such as Ideapad, Edge and Essentials. A number of those have glossy screens though. And avoid any laptops with an AMD CPU, they generally run very hot.

Re: Cloning XP on PATA drives in T42.

In a machine as old as a T42 you'll have to clone from Ultrabay to HD-bay, NOT the other way around! Which means that the "receiving" HD-bay drive will have to be a PATA drive, OR an mSATA on a PATA-mSATA-adapter. Alternatively, I use Acronis TrueImage 2012 on my desktop, with which I have taken ima...

Re: Pliers or grips to remove stripped wifi screw shafts *PICS*

Then how thick is your Dremel disk?
Mine is about 0.5mm.
The screw's thread diameter is about 1.5mm, so a 0.5mm groove should be more than enough to get it out.

Usually a discrete GPU fan also works on a mobo with integrated graphics, but not v.v.
A W520 fan (45W or 55W) might be overkill on integrated graphics, but probably would also fit.

IPS on a T60 was only available on 15" 4:3 models. T60 is limited to max. 3GB usable RAM, rather limited. Graphics in the T60 are either integrated Intel or discrete ATI Radeon in 3 flavors (X1300/X1400/V5200). For different graphics you need different motherboards, there is no "replaceable" graphic...
