Re: WTB: Win 7 Pro x64 ISO or recovery disks for X201

I need to rollback to Win 7 Pro on my X201 3626-F6U. I'm way past the 30 day trial of Windows 10 and the hidden rollback directories no longer exist (nor does the recovery partition). Tried using the COA on the laptop to download a copy of the Win 7 ISO direct from MS but no luck due to the OEM iss...

Re: Broken R400 screen -- where to find a cheap replacement ?

Hello there! As of subject: i recently refurbished a ThinkPad R400 from a friend of mine who was throwing it away.

Re: (T400 screen)+ (R400 MB) = (R400 w/functional bezel camera)?

I'm sure this has been done, tried and asked many times, since the T400/R400 screens look to be interchangeable.... but I can't find the answer. If you stick a T400 screen on an R400 bottom, do you end up with an R400 with a working bezel camera??? 2nd question... If the answer to the above is "yes...

Re: X201 + X200 Ultrabase audio over HDMI?

Before dismantling and soldering try a different Displayport cable. An X201 with the X200/X201 Ultrabase will pass audio+video via Displayport.

Re: Does thinkpad b/g/n wireless card support 300 or 450mbps?

I'm using netgear's WNDR4500 router with Intel's 6300 3x3 and within two meters from router I'm getting 450mbps.
In whole house getting ~ 270-360 mbps.
Outside on the garden then ~ 240 mbps.

Think that upgrade for Intel's 6300 or 5300 is worth it.

Re: Loose Wireless Radio Switch

I had problems with mine.

What I did to solve it out is that I've took planar out of the laptop it self and soldered switch.

Now I can do whatever with hw switch, but radio is still on.
If for some reason I need radio off, still can use Fn+F5.


hope this helps.

You won't be the first, and you won't be the last, where a SATA mod failed. Check that none of the 'old' 64 pins of the former SATA chip make contact each other. Also check that all the tiny 3/4 x 1 mm capacitors are there at all 4 wires that you are supposed to solder in. And don't ask me to fix i...

Re: Would like to upgrade wireless card on x220

Intel 6205 or 6250 is what you want. A 6300 would would work, but you wouldn't be able to take advantage of the third antennae connector. The webcam takes up the spot where a third antennae would be, so those units are limited to a 2x2 setup. What I did is just bought antenna on ebay and installed ...
