Hi, I'm looking to buy a new T420 keyboard. The FRUs are listed in this Keyboard service parts - ThinkPad T420, T420i page . Why are there three FRUs per language? In the old days, there used to be 3 different keyboards: ALPS, Chicony and NMB... Is this what this is all about? Which FRU corresponds ...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: T61 nVidia thinkpads now being repaired N/C

Is Lenovo still repairing faulty system boards, even outside the warranty?

Or coverage for support ended on March 31, 2011, as I've seen written in other forums?

Program that reads the temperature of the computer

I need a program that reads the temperature of the computer for Windows 7. I was thinking of using this gadget: http://addgadget.com/all_cpu_meter/.

Are the temperatures returned by this gadget as reliable as Thinkpad specific programs like tpfancontrol? Are there more?

Best 500GB internal hard-disk (FDE) for Thinkpad?

It's time to change my harddrive.

Which should I buy?

Is the "500 GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm", which can be used in the costumization of Thinkpads, any good? What brand is it?

Also, does it have Full disk encryption? Which has?

My T61p won't display anything. When I turn it on, I just get one long beep and two short beeps (which, according to the table in this website , - I'm assuming the BIOS is IBM - there is a Display adapter error). How can I fix this? P.S.: Before I figured out how to categorize the beeps, I've upload...
