Re: T43 AC Adaptor Dead?

I think the spare ac cable somehow killed the adapter coz after I switched my main adapter to the spare ac cable, it does not work anymore and this is probably the case for my spare adapter as well.

Now I'll have to do this. Anyone try it before?

Re: T43 AC Adaptor Dead?

OMG now my main ac adapter is also dead! I tried to switch the ac cable between the main and spare ac adapter with the ac cable plug still connected to the electrical extension.

Does this cause the adapters to die?

Re: X220 (and X201, X200) USB 3.0 Expresscard

I'm using this ake expresscard 54mm 2 x esata card on my t43 and it works great! Plug and play on Win7, maybe going to try out Win8 and hope it'll work.

The only minor issue I've is the connectors does not provide any locking thus the esata cables can be easily removed thus disconnecting the hdd.

Re: T43 100% CPU Usage

Managed to found a workaround for this! :D

My T43 connected to my 32" LCD TV via VGA port running XBMC is able to play all 720p videos smoothly (lag on 1080p)!

Now my T43 is a NAS + media player! Next step is find a remote control! :twisted:
