Re: X60 overheating?

I am having similar issue. I ran rmclock and it found memory errors. There is a high likelihood that you have bad memory. As of now my x60 becomes too hot soon when running Windows 7 I have installed Windows XP and it isn't going that hot but still. Too hot meaning it is unstable? If so, this is pr...

Re: X60 overheating?

I can confirm the advice that's been given here... My x60 used to go to sleep under load as well. Neither my fan nor heatsink had any appreciable dust buildup. Reapplying new thermal compound did fix the issue (no undervolting required) You have to literally disassemble the entire computer (follow t...

Re: My x60s recognizes 2GB or 1GB stick but not BOTH concurrentl

I recently bought an x60s (model 1702-xxx) with 512k and promptly upgraded the RAM to a total of 3GB PC2-5300 - 2GB (crucial) and 1GB (Hynix). Well, the machine recognizes EITHER the 2GB stick OR the 1GB stick but not both at the same time.... I thought that 3GB was the maximum RAM for this device ...

Re: Maximum memory supported but x60s?

I can also confirm that it is indeed 3GB (on an x60 with windows 7 64 bit).

I believe my principle problem was that I cloned the HDD's outside of the laptop. I just plugged both into SATA channels on a desktop motherboard, and ran the clone. This would normally work perfectly with any other computer, but for some reason the IBM required the fix (I referenced above) to the M...

The product I used was http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/bootit ... ration.htm

I used the free version, but I don't remember enough to tell you what buttons I pushed in order to make it work. I believe it might have been labeled something like "fix mbr"

Re: Upgrading HDD and Cloning Issues with X60

I've been trying to upgrade my x60 100GB HDD to 320GB. I've been unsuccessful using the Acronis Migrate Easy and True Image products. Even though the actual clone activity is successful with both of the products, when I put in the new 320GB HDD into the X60, I either get a read error OR I get a bla...

Agreed... my x60 feels very noticeably heavier than my x40 (both 8 cell).

Have : Verizon WWAN MC5720/ FRU # 42T0929 You might want to correct the above inconsistency: the two numbers don't "match". FRU #42T0929 is an MC5725 (EV-DO Rev. A) -- which does not work in an X60/s, if that's your machine. What do you have? MC5720 or MC5725? Whoops, thanks for the sharp eye. It i...

Did lenovo ever sell an MC8765 in an X60? Any idea whether one would work in an x60, or would the bios lock it out? Also, any idea what would happen if I put in the non-lenovo Sierra Aircard MC8765? Would the bios lock that out? Any easy way to get around it? Here is your answer: http://i9.ebayimg....

One note of caution: Whereas installing a Lenovo-branded Rev. A EV-DO card in an X60/s yields an 1802 error at bootup, installing a Lenovo-branded MC8775 card [AT&T/Cingular (locked) or Verizon (unlocked)] does not generate the boot error. However, the operating system never "sees" the card if inst...

Welcome to the forum! From what I know, Cingular/AT&T does involve having a SIM card, unlike Verizon. But I don't have one to trade. Good luck. Let me clarify the question portion of my post then. I DO have a cingular 3G sim card with data plan. My x60 currently has a sierra EVDO mini-pci card runn...

TRADE : Lenovo MC5720 EVDO WWAN mini-pci for Cingular HSDPA

Does anyone want to trade an x60 Lenovo mini-pci HSDPA card (either unlocked or cingular) for an x60 Lenovo mini-pci EVDO card (verizon). It is an MC5720, version P1808300, has a clear ESN and works perfectly on both EVDO and Nationalaccess (I've used it for a few weeks). I will consider straight 1:...

x60 Verizon to Cingular WWAN swap question (and trade offer)

I am looking to swap the WWAN card in my X60 from Verizon to Cingular. First a question : Is this even possible? I read here in a previous thread that the x60 is not available in GSM configurations ( http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=33520 , particularly the post by EOMtp) and lacks the nec...
