Re: DVD + or - RW for dvd burner

Since you are posting your question here, in the T6x-subforum, I assume that you are hence making implicit reference to a burner in a T6x ThinkPad. If this assumption is correct, you'll find detailled specs for a couple of the most common T6x multi-burners in the thread FS: Ultrabay Slim DVD-RW burn...

Re: Will any t42 mobo work in 15 inch t42p ?

If of interest, I have several (tested, functioning perfectly) T42p motherboards (i.e. w/GPU = ATI Mobility FireGL T2, having 128 MB VRAM), and with fingerprint-reader support. Bought, tested-good, kept "in stock" as spares. Contact me if of interest.

Re: Thinkpad T61 with LQ154M1LW02

Welcome to the forum!

The reason why the (ex-Dell) panel you tried to install in yout T61 doesn't work might be because the lack of the (proper) EDID-chip. Try search this forum for more info about what this "EDID" is all about... e.g. use this search method.
