Re: X61s stuck in Dock

The ejector arm doesn't do anything, the Dock has been sitting in for years without usage...

hmm.. ok i will give it a try.

It's a very good machine, throttles at 1.2ghz and never above 53c which is the best machine i ever had

X61s stuck in Dock

I recently got hold of a Thinkpad X61s with L7500 and 4gb ram, a ssd for 10 eur.

Mounted it in the old Thinkdock, now it won't leave it.

Anyone have any ideas to fix it? i might need to swap the drive and install wwan...

Best Regards,

Re: X220 WWAN card (Ericsson F5521gw) - Power draw

You can turn it off via it's comport (USB) in some terminal program. (minicom)

AT+CFUN=0 should really turn it off.
But it will probably go on after suspend/resume anyway.

Re: New heatsink/fan for X60

Thank you, new fan installed, the FRU you gave me was of another type of fan that my machine had before. The blades are larger, and there is less blades. It keeps cool at 41c, 52c when using 100% CPU.

Took me some time to get in from China :-)

Using under-volt and disengaged fan in Linux.

Re: ThinkPad X61 screen questions for everyone

I need to say i'm sorry for you. I just tried vsync on my X60 (non-tablet) and it's indeed 50hz.
I guess it's only 60hz in 320x200 :/

It's 50hz all the way.

Re: ThinkPad X61 screen questions for everyone

I noticed the 60hz while playing quakeworld on it, and there's difference between it and X61/X61s.

However you should put up with something that i can test to see if it's really 60hz instead of wasting money and i'm wrong

Re: ThinkPad X61 screen questions for everyone

I had this problem with a X61 and a X61s, My X60 runs 60hz however
edit: I even mounted the X60 lcd on both the X61/X61s and it was still 50hz.

The crippled sound-card made me go back to my old X60 :)
