Can the X120e run a 64 bit linux kernel?

I've been running a 32 bit linux kernel since I bought this E-350 X120e many years ago. But I want to upgrade to a 64 bit kernel now. Every 64 bit kernel I've tried would crash unless I used the "acpi=off" kernel parameter. Main problem with that is that the kernel can only see one core, and frequen...

Re: X120e internal speakers problem

I've taken a look at the hardware maintenance manual. The speaker assembly is replaceable, but that doesn't look like it contains the DAC. Pc speaker sound (those beeps), still work just fine. The digital sound circuit that contains the DAC looks like it's directly on the motherboard and not replace...

X120e internal speakers problem

It started about 5 months ago. While watching videos, loud sounds in videos such as glass breaking would cause the speakers to switch off. Plugging in earphones still works, but the speakers won't output any more sound, as if they were switched off by some kind of protection circuit. This only happe...

Bring back the x100e & x120e style!

Every new x1**e model coming out has that new style... the screen doesn't open 180 degrees, the insert key is missing, and it's deeper in order to prevent the battery from sticking out the back I also don't throw my laptop against walls, so I don't need bumpers. I like the older x100e & x120e styles...

Humanoid's review of the x120e

Hello. I got myself a thinkpad x120e about 3 months ago, so here's my review of it. I customized the thinkpad on the lenovo site so that it has an E-350 CPU, and a 3-cell battery. I saw the 6-cell battery is available separately, but the 3-cell battery is not, so I decided to get one while I could. ...

Re: power adapter X120e

uhm.. here in Italy we have a 3 prong cable like this connected to the adapter brick of the Thinkpad (sorry for the very long link) so, if in the US is 2 prong I will need a different solution Your 3 pin cable uses a C5 connector. All you need is a cable with a C7 connector, which is 2 pins. They a...

Re: Writing a BIOS replacement for X100e

I want! I want! I want! But I ordered an X120e, specifically the model with the E-350. If you're willing to consider the X120e, I can take high resolution photos for you. Get all the writing on the chips nice and visible. I'll run lspci and stuff as soon as I get it in the mail. I can maybe even hel...

Re: Can I order an x120e with different keyboard layout?

Thanks for posting their reponse. I was curious as to what they would say. The support page for keyboard service parts for x120e http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/detail.page?DocID=PD008475 links to http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-...

Re: Can I order an x120e with different keyboard layout?

The x120e is not available in thailand, so I will order it from lenovo.com when I visit canada. I too, would like to order it with different keyboard, specifically the thai keyboard. I don't think it's possible though. The x120e hardware maintenance manual lists FRU numbers for keyboards. I figure I...
