Re: T61 -- Suddendly, mysteriously, a one fingered swipe on the trackpad causes all windows to tile

Once you have W10 installed, you have absolutely NO say in whatever Micro$haft wants to do.
Learn to live with it (or dump them, as discussed elsewhere).

If you are not the seller, don't put posts like this in the Marketforum!

Re: Project result report: Re-celling 8-cell X6x (non-tablet) battery

No special settings, just default from whatever is in BIOS and in the W7-Pro (32-bit) Power Mgmt program (V.6-something). I use it until it's about 10%, then plug it in overnight. It's my travel companion and gets otherwise used daily, when I feel like it on the couch. It's just a dammed good batter...

Re: Switchable graphics can't be switched on T500

Your W7-source for installing the SSD did not include that switchable driver "natively", and does not like it.
Try older/newer versions if you can.
Other than that: no idea.

Re: Microsoft Paint to be killed off after 32 years

Can't even remember when I last used M$ Paint, must have been in the last century! :lol: I have been using Irfanview since about 1997. Does everything I ever need! :mrgreen: And for only a short time I also played with Ulead's Photoimpact for one or two projects. Found it too complicated for my needs.

Re: [W530] Blank screen & four beeps

Look at the pictures of offered mobos before you decide.
Check also if they are real pictures, not generic ones. Ask if need be.
Just in case: you'll want one with 4 RAM slots, 2 on top and 2 on bottom and without W8pro in the parts/frubom list.

Re: Need help(!) Middleton BIOS T61 Windows 10?

As long as you switch off before you remove the HD...
Remove completely to be sure.
7luj27uc.iso is the regular bootable CD Lenovo BIOS V2.29/1.08
Only need that if you don't have that version already installed.
#1 (without) and #2 (with) are M's updates for keyswap.
