Re: T40p and SATA drive w/o swapping with cdrom

Hi, Without selling your old thinkpad and buying a T60 Would be to use the Second Hard Drive Caddy (SATA TO PATA) and get an external case (USB) for your Optical Drive. This way you would still have the main drive, A Second (SATA) hard drive and your Burner. But Like George said it Might be cheaper ...

Re: R52 Windows 7 Touchpad/Trackpoint issues

But with the standard VGA driver from microsoft I got 1024 x 768 and High Colors. Sounds also like maybe a loose connection of the touchpad. Just have to ...

Hi, Just a quick question. You say " Battery is not recognized", Does it show that the battery is charging OR is it an after market battery that is not recognized and does not charge? Also you are keeping the Hard drive,But are you going to include the Caddy and cover with the machine? TIA, MnR

Re: Sign of motherboard failure?

Hi,

Your south bridge controls more then your USB... Your hard drive and your Optical drive to name two.

It would be wise to swap out the motherboard or sell the T40 for parts and get a newer laptop if you can afford it.

Re: Virus recovery -- Windows cannot verify license

Hi,

Try using BELARC and see if it can find the Keycode for windows. Belarc will give you full information about your computer. If the keycodes don't match if one is found then run a search for a keychanger. Run the Keychanger and input the one on your COA from the laptop.

Re: Should I go with a T41, T42, T43 or R52?

Hi,

I have both a T43 (2668) and a R52 (1860). I like the R series now better then the T series. 1.8ghz Processor would be the sweet spot as it runs cool. If it has Intel graphics great.

I would take RBS up on his offer as his products are excellent.
