Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

I don't think that's necessary, I've used so far 4 different types of displays for T/W510 and T/W520 series and it was plug and play. No EDID flashing of any kind was needed...

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

I don't have a list of compatible models (apart from the ones mentioned before). According to Panelook.com these should be compatible (but they sometimes have errors in their specs so take this list with a pinch of salt) N156HGE-L11 15.6" LCM 1920×1080 300 600:1 WLED 262K LVDS LTN156HT01-201 15.6" L...

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

My impression of this screen was not good. It was very very red! Definitely defective, this screen is regarded as the best screen for this series. I have few of these screens and non of them have a red tint. As alternative you could try the B156HW01 v7 , which is the same as v4 but glossy (provided...

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

Re: Changing the keyboard only on an X1C gen 1

I replaced my KB today. It's not so difficult as it may sound, the white layer is quite sturdy and can be removed easily with a guitar pick. Patience is needed to screw all tiny screws back in place, but apart from that nothing special. I took some pictures of the replacement keyboard, for the curio...

Re: Just picked up a Thinkpad T430 for cheap!

T430s are nice machines. Don't forget you can retrofit a 7 row keyboard rather easily, and of course do the famous FHD Mod!

CPU wise, IMO you should expect a good performance increase compared to the old Core2Duo SU9x000 generation. :wink:

If not, will be difficult to get the same BIOS mod for this model?

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe that only W520 was offered with an upgraded heatsink capable of handling 55W CPUs That's correct, only the W520 has a 55W heatsink, while technically an XM CPU could run in a T520, it won't be very cool :roll: I will probably opt for one of the lesser quad-core p...

Re: Processor Upgrade

Yeah, they're still pricey. I modded one of my T520 with a 2670QM, was the cheapest I could find. You can use if you want the the T520 heatsink, but you need to remove part of the black plastic coating since the die of the quads is bigger. Buying directly a W520 heatsink is better IMO.

Re: Processor Upgrade

Most powerful 45W CPU is the Core i7-2860QM, and the i7-2920XM for 55W.

No special BIOS is needed, but you better use the W520 170W PSU. I'll also recommend to use the Nvidia heatsink, even if you have an Intel only model.

V7 is quality-wise the same as V4 but glossy instead of mate, the rest of the V's are of lower picture quality.
