$15 plus shipping? I need to pare down my stock. That would be a used one in good shape. I also have NOS unused maybe $25 plus shipping for one of them? PM me.

Re: [WANTED] vintage 750c LCD Inverter Board

PM me looks like you want 2 160 meg hard drives, a 16 meg DRAM card and a keyboard. I have turned my man cave upside down for a battery and am starting to recall I got rid of them when we moved a couple years ago. Sorry.

The hard drives and memory card and keyboard would be cosmetically as new.

Re: [WANTED] vintage 750c LCD Inverter Board

Well these laptops were like $5000 in the day and the removeable hard drive was touted as allowing everyone in a workgroup to share one laptop. Each person would just have his or her own hard drive. But you could lock it in with a little metal piece that slid out.

I know I have HDD, dead battery, there is no CD ROM made for the 750 series unless you mean pcmcia (which I do not have) I have memory, AC adapter and pretty sure I have a keyboard. I will dig the box out of the closet and let you know in the next day or so.

Re: Buying parts for 701C: HDD caddy, bottom system board

So glad to hear of your success. I have several lower planars that I now feel its worth the effort to try soldering a new battery in place as it will revive them.

Any way you guys want to do it is fine. I am not sure how much newer than T440 the dock can go. As long as I get $25 and enough to cover a usps small flat rate box and a medium flat rate box I am good with it.

There are two batteries in addition to the main battery. One is in a plastic cover with a pigtail and is in the small compartment on the bottom in one of the corners under a removable panel. I am not 100% sure what that one does but its not the CMOS battery that is involved in the 161/163 error. Tha...

I will check my stock. A couple years ago I had several 750/755/360 units all of which had bad screens and I cobbled together one working unit with the best parts but recall more than one of the motherboards worked.

It would yes....time will be set to default. You get the 161/163 first and then after it has done the memory check you get a 201 error with a memory address.
