Re: Don't throw away your T4x, The new mobo is coming![Lots PIC]

Id be looking to attain one of these as well, my TR451 is a bit slow for everyday use, so this would make a great upgrade. If this would be done for a 600X, id be ecstatic. but the T4xs were great machines and id love to see them last this much longer.

MINT 600E on ebay

I remember seeing a post on here not too long ago where somebody was looking for a good condition 600 series lid. This whole computer is pretty much flawless, and from what i heard was hardly used since it was new. The full story is in the listing which can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330...

Re: I think i blew a fuse...

Another thought i had would be to swap in a t420s or t430s motherboard. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I think i blew a fuse...

When i replaced the LCD on my T410s, i forgot to remove the battery. It powers up just fine, for some reason the ThinkLight comes on every time, but i have no backlight. is there anywhere i can send it to replace the fuse?

I am looking for a set of Windows 7 recovery cds for my X301. But since i only have a vista sticker on the laptop, i dont think Lenovo Support will send me some. Does anyone have an extra set? If it helps, the type is 4057-18U.

I may be looking to upgrade my t60 widescreen from 1.66ghz up to a 2.33 but i wonder how much of a difference in heat it will put out. Right now it barely if ever gets hot. Im also considering doing the same in a widescreen t60p i have but before i do i want to make sure it wont run too hot.
