Re: T61 *rare* NOS m/b 44c3924 (42w7873, 42w7649, 43y9045) FrankenPad *ext. warranty*

I will be away on vacation soon, but I plan to leave a few of these boards with a friend who can ship them for me if any member wants one.

Re: T60/p to T61 Frankenpad kit (Free NOS nVidia upgrade)

I will be on vacation soon so won't be able to put together any of these kits from sept 20 to october 20 (approx). I will have the motherboards available while I am away and there is still time to get one of these kits shipped before I leave if it's ordered soon.

Re: Microsoft Windows Seven, XP and Vista $10 to $39 delivered

You are mistaken, microsoft doesn't sell discs, they sell licenses, the discs are freely distributed and when you own a license, you have the right to use it. I again point out that this has already been hashed out and you can read the full discussion in this topic, which is why I revived it instead...

Re: How to build an advanced FrankenPad

When it comes to choice of motherboards I believe the best option with perfomance, reliability and price is the new NOS IBM motherboards with nVidia nvs140m graphics. These are brand new in sealed IBM boxes and have an updated version of the GPU chip that isn't likely to fail like all the production...

Re: ThinkPad R60 15.0" FrankenPad - (Pic links)

Have you ever tried fitting a T61 nVidia board into an R60/61 15"? I don't have an R6x to experiment with, but they look similar to your photo and with the recent price drop on the new NOS boards it would make a very cost effective Frankenpad since the 15" R60 units have sold dirt cheap at auction....

Re: Purchasing X9000 any Cautions?

When I build a T61 or t61p I have never seen one go that high no matter how much I stress it, so I suspect something is wrong. One common problem is people taking apart and replacing parts without cleaning and replacing the thermal paste, but other problems could be the cause. Generally a healthy T...

Re: Can a T60 with ATI graphics us a 65 watt charger?

Sorry for late reply. What I was getting at was that if the 65w adapter didn't supply enough power to run the laptop on heavy load it would use battery power creating a state when the battery is discharging while on AC. The same is true during an AC brownout, as the battery is there as a safety meas...

Re: FS: T61p 15.4" planar/systemboard 1104A2 dated 256mb nVidia fx570m

In order to help your sale I will add that this part number was rarely used, but is identical to 42w7653. It can also replace a 42w7877 or 44c3931 if a Merom class cpu is used, or if the middleton bios is installed it will run a Penryn cpu too.

Good luck with your sale.
