Re: Troubleshooting: Keyboard stopped working and Windows won't boot past loading screen?

Maybe HD/SSD 'roaming' without bumpers? If so, correct and reseat.
USB port(s) damaged inside?
CD-drive not quite in?
Keyboard/trackpad connector loose?
LCD-cable fallen out of LCD or loose inside?

Re: Troubleshooting: Keyboard stopped working and Windows won't boot past loading screen?

I placed my laptop onto my bed gently
which probably blocked all the vents.
No fresh air coming in, no hot air going out, most likely CPU died from overheating.
Try another CPU (if not soldered) and check that the fan still turns...

And don't forget that the WXGA lid has a groove along the LCD-cover top.
WXGA+ (1440x900) lid has no such groove.

Re: T500 shows no signs of life

Left it overnight charging, with a bad/dead battery in it?
Remove that battery, also disconnect CMOS-battery, then try to boot.

Re: Thoughts on the T440 and T450 quality

The T440p and T450p have an optical drive, which you can replace with a 3rd adapter+HD/SSD.
Their cardreader is connected with a flex flat cable, so no go for #4.

Re: Error Message on My T41

Take the CD drive out and see if the T41 starts then without error.
For only a few dollar you get another drive.
Those things can last 1 day, or 1 month, or 10 years, potluck I'd say.

Re: Thoughts on the T440 and T450 quality

Since you seem to be in the know, why are there so many throwaway Lenovo lines, starting with nearly every letter of the alphabet?
They could save a lot of money by dumping at least half of those, and spend the saved money to improve keyboard and screens.

Re: Thinkcentre M58p MAX CPU and RAM support

Just out of curiosity, I have an M58 full tower (9960-ALU) with E7500 (2.93GHz), Intel GMA-4500, (maxed out) 8GB RAM and W7-Pro.
It could run a quad Q8200 (and probably others) but I see no reason at all to even consider that.
