The X31's do not have a CD/DVD drive built in. To accomplish that, requires the Media Wedge.

X31 interest? FS/Trade

I have 5 or 6 X31's Im looking to part with. Last time I put my hands on them they were all in working condition, but to be honest that's been at least a year ago. Since Im required to put a price in, $200.00 would get them anywhere in the CONUS. If you have an interest PM me. Going to the Fleabay b...

F/S Any Interest Dell PPX (Latitude CPx)

At least 5 years in storage, I fixed it for someone who never picked it up. Needed a screen and a HDD. Remarkably zippy for XP without much memory. Comes with both CDRW and DVD drive. No clue how long the battery lasts. Includes OEM charger. Looks pretty darn good for the age, no broken plastics tha...

Its been years since I have fiddled with the T30's but Im positive I swapped HDDs between them, I had several and at the time HDDs were expensive.

I live in Roxboro, but work on Hillsborough Rd in Durham.
Have tons of Z60 and 61T parts. What are you looking for?

My long time personal machine was a Z61t just about maxed out. The Ti cover still has the factory plastic attached via double sided tape.

Re: Existing T30 HDD/XP-install into "new"/used T30?

I have the recovery set if you want it. Costs a donation to the Forum.

With that said I think it will swap just fine. Its not going to hurt the HDD to try the swap, it will just BSOD, and you will need the Discs.

I started with the Thinkpads in the T21 era. That said I have consistently had the best luck with Atheros based WiFi cards. Nothing wrong with the Intel or Broadcom, but I have always had stronger signal, and easier configuration with the Atheros. In sketchy areas, it seems to me the A will always p...

Re: Blown T420 backlight fuse, potential risks if jumping/briding?

On some earlier machines I have soldered a single strand of a 14 gauge stranded wire over the two ends of the fuse. Then a bit of tape to insulate the [censored] fuse assembly.

Re: Software switch for bluetooth?

It does not tell me anything about the wrong card, it just will not let me find it, or load the drivers to find it. The WFi came up and ran just fine, although I get better speed in the wire.
