Re: Lenovo CES 2019

Now is it just generic laptop with a lot of issues as other brands have, or even worse. I disagree with that as well. The relative qualities of Thinkpads vs other brands has not really changed for as far as I can remember. Ever since I joined this forum, people have always been saying that "Thinkpa...

Re: Lenovo T440; touchpad problems.

Well, I called Lenovo Spain and they told me that this is a very known issue; they just replaced 2-3 t440 touchpads this month :eek: .

So, a technician will be at home in 24-48h. Hope that he´ll let me put an 8gb memory stick when the motherboard will be opened!.

Re: Lenovo T440; touchpad problems.

Well,forget it; now the problem is very common and obvious; it even freezes the computer and keeps working, but beeping.

Odd,pretty odd, but i guess that the mouse or even the motherboard/keyboard is defective (touchpad disabled, and keeps doing the same)...

Will call lenovo on Tuesday.

Lenovo T440; touchpad problems.

Hi! I´m a little bit concerned lately, because sometimes my touchpad´s pointer goes crazy. Also the left part of the touchpad is a little more "hard" when pressing if i compare it with the right one (although it is like that since i receive it). Could it be caused by my sweety (under stress) hands? ...

A x200/201 keyboard requires four screws - none of which match the T60/61/400 screw position.
Yes,I think that you are right. Thanks!!

Re: Upgrading Tx20 to Ivy Bridge?

Maybe its time to give it a try; http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_%28 ... press.html

That page says that i3,i5 and i7 (some models only) are compatible. I will not try it on my t520 yet,but perhaps in the future ( i7 3610ME is now available in some ebay auctions from 100€)

Re: Thinkpad R40 as possibly buy

You'd be better off finding an R52, either 14.1" or 15", with built-in Intel graphics. You should be able to get one for about the same €40.- The R40 is a POS, made by Acer. Don't touch it if not necessary! Yes,although my r40e was an amazing rock-solid computer P.s. Once i'll received my t520's ke...

Re: LCDs on T60/T60p - types, availability and other discussions

The answer to your question is most likely "no", since the vast majority of T4x LCDs miss the EDID chip that is required by T60/p motherboards. You've got nothing to lose by trying, though. In the worst case scenario you'll get no image on boot with the T40 LCD. Good luck. Thank you so much! This c...

T500 keyboard is different and not compatible. It is compatible to older T series - T60/T61.
Ops, then, the keyboard that I posted (ebay´s link) isnt the one that i need,im wrong?

Hell, i though that i could use this.

Re: considering buying a IBM ThinkPad T60p 15.1 sxga

Hi! Why don't you get a T61 with an Intel x3100? its powerful enough to run Win7, and its the coolest thing i have ever seen.

P.S. I bought it a few days ago, and now its my first machine (oh, Macbook Pro 2011, what a pity! ;))
