Re: T60p win7 and 4965AGN

Error 52 is usually from non-signed drivers. If it tells you during install that the driver is not signed, click on ignore/continue anyway. Try looking for a Vista driver or accept the M$ driver. Or get another wifi card with W7 drivers, such as Intel 5100/5200/6100/6200/6300 etc. The drivers are s...

T60p win7 and 4965AGN

I just installed a Seagate ST50LX003-1AC154, in my T60p and reinstalled Win7 64 bit. But this time around I seem to be having issues. When I attempt to install the Intel drivers from Lenovo, I get an error 52 :( . The only drivers I seem to be able to install are the Microsoft ones....

Re: iPad instead of x200 series?

hmm I have a T60p and an iPad, the camera kit has been turned into a joke by Apple. Apple has chosen to limit the output power of the iPad to 10 ma. This means most USB flash drives no longer work, unless you run it through a powered hub. Most keyboards will not work for the same reason... If you ja...

Thinking about buying a T61, comparison to a T60p

I'm thinking about buying a refurbished T61, my only real reference is my T60p I'm curious as to feedback on how important that "p" is? What kind of video performance numbers can I expect in Vista/win7?

Thank you

There are a couple of users that claim to have added one to a T61 (one as in a 650 GB 12.5 mm). That is why I am asking about the T60p, it would depend on how the 1 TB drive is made I believe.
