Re: [FS] X201s - i7 M620, 8GB, 480GB SSD, Win10 Pro, MS Office 2016

This is still for sale, but a private message asked about USB 3.0. The X200/201 series only had USB 2.0, but this reminded me that I have a USB 3.0 ExpressCard for this unit, and I'll add it to the sale. It's recognized immediately by Windows 10 (it's a Renascence USB 3.0 controller).

Still for sale! I should have made clear that I'll ship only to the 48-state US.

Re: Counterfeit battery?

Well, two surprises: First, after I installed the latest Lenovo Vantage under Windows 10, it didn't complain about the battery. It seems to say it's genuine. Next, the serial number shown in Lenovo Vantage exactly matches the number under the bar code on the battery itself. So maybe this was a false...

Re: Red vertical artifacts on X61s screen - no easy fix?

For that LCD price from Israel you could buy a whole other machine! Very true! I'm trying to make this right for the buyer - and the rest of the machine is in really beautiful shape, so it would be nice to get it working. I'm perfectly willing to take a total loss on it, but it would be better to s...

I'm in touch with the buyer and maybe this will work. Could you tell more details about putting the piece of paper there - do you mean under the bezel? Meanwhile, thank you!

Re: Red vertical artifacts on X61s screen - no easy fix?

I think it is an ultralight screen. I had forgotten that. The HMM is on this site:

https://thinkpads.com/support/hmm/hmm_p ... 550_04.pdf

The screens seem to be on pp.201-202, but I can't figure out which is the Ultralight.

Red vertical artifacts on X61s screen - no easy fix?

I recent sold an X61s on the forum - and when the buyer got the machine, the screen was showing reddish (magenta?) vertical artifacts, almost as if someone had taken had a Magic Marker and dragged it down the screen. The damage obviously occurred in USPS shipping (never again...) and I've asked the ...

Re: WTB > X1 Carbon 6th

Lenovo lists reseller sites on its Lenovo Israel page.

I isolated pin 51 on a 7260 card in my X201s, and also in my X61s. No luck with either one, after installing bluetooth drivers, etc. Both these machines came without the Lenovo bluetooth daughtercard in the lid, and I don't want to try installing one. Is there another wifi card that might work well ...

Last week I noticed that some people were able to use this card by insulating "Pin 51" which allowed the bluetooth to work. Anyhow I decided to try it, and it works. Pin 51 is the last contact on the far right of the strip when viewing the side of the card that contains the antenna connections. Wel...

I'm getting ready to sell a maxed-out ThinkPad X201s which has an Intel 7260 wi-fi card (a replacement for the original Lenovo card) - and a modded BIOS that removes Lenovo's whitelist. The machine dual-boots Windows 7 (32-bit) and Windows 10 (64-bit). As far as I can tell, there's no bluetooth avai...
