Re: Negative feedbacks for traders and Tips for fair trading

I hope this is the proper way to use this negative feedback mechanism. Please advise if I should do it differently. Beware of eBay user totaltechindustries. I sold him my beloved T40 2373-72U. He claimed that it didn't work, and eBay forced me to accept the return. I received the return today, and ...

Q, FS: Modded T430 (Keyboard, Quad-Core, FHD IPS)

>>>SOLD<<< Guys, I received a new P1 gen2 yesterday and considering selling my t430. The t430 had been my daily driver last two years and it served me well. I am not in an urgent need of selling it. However, I don't want to be a one of the old grumpy men collecting old junk. For this reason, I am a...

Re: x301 CPU upgrade (yes, we're talking soldering)

Hi, I just came across your post and subsequent link on X301 modifications and I am impressed. I have two X300s and several X301s in POST but varying repair states, perhaps someday I will select one of the X301s and rebuild it as you have (new fan, paste, keyboard). I wish I got your battery life t...

Re: unofficial upgrades and info for the X1xxe series and the Mini 10

How are these devices? I know that they were developed as portable typewriters (netbooks), but how are keyboards, trackpoints, construction in contrast with normal X/T series?
Is it usable when running linux?

Re: cpu upgrade t430

Run that test NOT on a dock. The dock probably obstructs the in/outgoing airflows which cause those temp spikes. When was that CPU's thermal paste last refreshed? I changed the paste about two weeks ago. Additionally, I played with various configurations (e.g. now, I have a copper spacer that impro...

Re: cpu upgrade t430

I'm successfully running i7-3632QM for more then a year now and I'm very satisfied. No issues with throttling, overheating or unstable work. After the mod the laptop needs a minimum of 90W power adapter, won't run on 65W. What are your temperatures? I use i7-3612QM (also 35W TDP) and the laptop wit...

Re: ThinkPad T420i screen information

Hi there, welcome to the forum.
I have recently converted my t430 to FHD IPS screen. I have a bunch of photos and going to publish the manual on my website.
Meanwhile, I can share pictures and details with you. I am kinda swamped, please poke my mailbox if I forget to share details.

Re: Upgrading T430 FHD screen to 1080

Hmm, I can't speak for the controller. Most of us have here the one from qstore. But I guess it's the same design, probably stolen from Majestic.. Anyway, the screen you bought is for 99% not the genuine "B140HAN01.3". It is a one of the "Compatible" screen. It's written in the description. My guess...

Re: [T440p]What is going on with the connector for the AC jack?

This can happen when connector pins oxidize. Increased rezistivity causes power dissipation and heat. (I assume that I see a melted housing of the connector). It is important to change both parts of the connector as soon as possible. Your warranty should be OK. You can typically open thinkpads witho...

Hello Jiri, Try out polish allegro.pl - I was able to buy grade A FHD panel for the likes of 28€... EDIT: flickering is not the panel problem, but the FHD panel you got - most of them are intended to use with T430s. This is a good idea. However, since Allegro.pl and Aukro.cz are not friends anymore...

Gentlemen, (and ladies), USB is mess these days. FYI: USB3.0 = USB 3.1 gen 1 (5Gbps) -> Renamed due to marketing USB3.1 gen 2 (10Gbps) -> Difficult to get even for new laptops. USB-C -> Description of the physical connector. Nothing else. USB-C connector can host typically these functions: USB3.0 (3...
