Re: Anyone try Windows 10 on x61s?

Sorry, my X61T went down for a month when I went to drop in the LED backlight and it had a section of dead LEDs. Had to order a new strip from china, and stare at my poor thinkpad every day with a nice modded inverter and no good way to use it. :cry: Good news is that I'm back up with a LED backligh...

Re: Anyone try Windows 10 on x61s?

You have middle button scrolling working in the start menu and Edge browser? How? Otherwise W10 works very well on X61. Better battery life than Windows 7 too. I didn't notice until you said something, but it does NOT work in the start menu. It works great on the edge browser. It appears to have tr...

Re: Lenovo X60 Tablet- Crystal HD Help?

Has anyone tried this card in the X61/X61T ? Does it help? Also, I guess you have to get rid of the WiFi card to put it in? right? As per a thread already mentioned, the x60 doesn't actually have two true mini pcie ports (the second slot is only usb), so it loses the wireless card. The x61/t SHOULD...

LF: x61 tablet screen w/dead backlight

I'm trying to do a LED backlight upgrade to my x61 tablet, as my backlight is dim and I like to play with electronics. I have all the components on the way, but I'd rather not rip apart the backlight on my working screen until I have tried it on a dead one. (Although I have already gotten it almost ...

Re: Removal of unnecessary devices?

I wouldn't think you'd get much more out of removing devices than disabling. Once the OS isn't looking for them, and the bios won't even acknowledge them, they won't really be hurting anything more than the weight of them.

Re: WLAN in WWAN slot

The first post was correct if I looked into it a bit more. I knew about the taping of pin 20 for the whitelisting, but it actually is a disable pin. With pin 20 taped, both connections work great! I may do a board mod to actually hook pin 20 up to the actual hardware disable switch.

I had a 4965AG card, and I bought an 4965AGN. I want to use both (one running a ad-hoc connection all the time, and the other as my normal wireless card) for a setup I need at work. Whichever card is in the second slot doesn't work, even if the first is disabled. I've tried driver versions 13.4, 14....

It's f2 for sure. The fuselist isn't quite the same for the x61t as the x60, but looking helped. F2 isn't mentioned on the mb but it's a 3A fuse, and it is the same fuse as the 3A used on the x60. Where it's on the mb, I think I'm actually going to play the waiting game and install a new fuse, inste...

I was pulling apart my x61 tablet about two months ago. I had it unplugged but I forgot to pull the battery. Of course, as I'm taking out a screw I get a spark, and the backlight no longer functions when I reassemble it (screen itself still works, confirmed with a flashlight.) I assumed I popped a f...

It comes up with a battery light when the system battery is plugged in, and was running that way the last couple times I booted it. I did not run it very long either time, and I had a goo...

If it's just headphones, I'd try a different pair. They do that when the cord gets worn.
