Re: T500: Spontaneous Hibernation

Have a 2082-3GU T500 that has gone into hibernation several times over the last few days while being used. It's plugged in and the battery is fully charged anyway. It's running Windows 10 X64 and has been generally stable and problem-free. Any ideas? I'm not losing any work, but it's rather annoyin...

Re: T420s/T430s FHD/WQHD upgrade kits pre-order thread

Are these compatible with T430 or just with the "s" version? If not will be a batch for T430?

Thanks!

Re: My Thinkpad T430 & eGPU - EXP GDC V8 Expresscard - Experience

Thanks! As far as I know, a better HDD or SSD doesn't give you more FPS but faster load times in games. For better frames , I want to invest in a better GPU like a Geforce GTX 760 or better, a Geforce GTX 970. :) A SSD is in my plan but I don't rush. GTA V Benchmark : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Hi thinkers, First of all I would like to take a moment and write my history with this experience. Last year I had a Dell Precision M4500 (i7-720QM and nVidia Quadro FX880M) which it had to be my eGPU machine. But using FL Studio alot, the cpu didn't kept the pace so I had to make a change.

Re: [T430s] backlit keyboard replacement - CHY or LTN?

There might be the chance that the backlit keyboard installed in my Thinkpad won't lit? If you are referring to T430 in your signature, than backlight will work fine. Only L430/L530 models won't lit a keyboard with backlight. Check the FRU number of the keyboard you are buying and choose one of thr...

Hi, My Thinkpad came with no backlit keyboard but in the future I would love to add it one. I have found one at a good price but on a Ebay auction the guy said that you must be sure if your Thinkpad supports the backlit keyboard before I will buy it. Is it true? There might be the chance that the ba...

Re: Lenovo Settings (Power Manager) for Windows 10 on T500

Hi,

Would this be working on Thinkpad T430 too? That's the only issue that's keeping me from switching from Windows 7 to 10.

How is Power Manager in Windows 10 working? Any issues?

Re: T430 upgrading cpu to i7-3730QM

I have recently installed on my Thinkpad T430 a i7-3610QM processor (45W) with Intel HD 4000 Graphics. Didn't had time to push it to the limits but I will keep you posted, in idle it stays at 45 degrees C.
