Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Just got the kit installed, reinstalled Windows, and it worked right until the HD3000 drivers got installed, now when Windows boots, it ends in a black screen with backlight, anyway around this? Using Win10 X64. Also the dithering link in your guide is not reachable anymore... EDIT, I might have fou...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Any updates on a new batch? I was signed up from day 1, but have yet to hear more than the mail sent out by Nitrocaster saying that the first batch is sold out, and I'll get to know when batch 2 is ready.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't read thoroughly enough, end of February it is.

It was originally designed for my X230. So yes, it will.

Re: Does a normal T440 panel fit in a T440 equipped with touch?

Just looking at the T440 parts list and HMM, it looks as if they use different screens and different cables. Based on similar machines, the touch-version has probably also a thicker lid. But the main disadvantage: touchscreen is HD+, all other screens are only HD. Have you checked the LCD-fuses? Ok...

Does a normal T440 panel fit in a T440 equipped with touch?

So I bought a water damaged T440, and the only thing not working is the panel. I disassembled it, and removed the panel, and I am now wondering if I can somehow use a normal T440 panel instead of the touch version? I was hoping to keep the screen assembly, and only switch out the panel, is that poss...

Replace screen in W540

So I found a good offer on a W540, however it does have that supposedly "dreadful" 1080p TN panel. I was wondering if it would be possible to replace it with a IPS version? I see that laptopscreen.com has these: http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/IBM-Lenovo/THINKPAD~W540~SERIES/ Even the 3K o...

Cracked my lid on my X220T :(

So yesterday I took out my X220T to do some work at my University here in Denmark. However when I took it out, I noticed that it had a crack on the lid, and I have no idea how i got it! The bag I carry it in, is pretty padded with protective foam, so it must have been something hitting it hard. http...

Re: Warranty for X220T in Denmark

@ Jacob: Welcome to the forum! As to your planned warranty upgrade, I agree that this is a good idea, but I strongly urge you to check for yourself that the warranty extension you end up purchasing IS valid in Denmark, regardless of where you order it from. Beware that the whole warranty-extension ...

Hi, I've just converted from a Dell Latitude E6400 to a Thinkpad X220T, and I love the IPS display! However there is a thing that annoys me a lot, which is the boot time, my X220T is pretty top spec with a i7 2620, 8GB ram, and the 320GB HDD, yes I know, it isn't a SSD, but I would've hoped it had l...
