IF you can post some clear images of the board back and front
Might be easier to tell you where the fuse is.

WTB x201t Multi touch lcd

Just cracked the digitiser on my tablet.
Any one got a lcd going with multi touch

As long as it is multi touch and digitiser is working
Not too bothered if the lcd has developed the fault with the lines on the screen
just in need of the digitiser.

Re: Reconditioning W510

get the right screwdriver

ph1

sharp tap with hammer and turn very slowly generating alot of torque
It should open up.

Or you may need a left hand drill bit and drill them, and they should come undone.

Re: Upgrade Display on X240?

Came across this late congrats on the upgrades
Just something to note.

I would disconnect the internal battery when swapping screens
As there is a chance you will blow the motherboard fuse.
Resulting in no back light as has been previously noted..

Re: X300 LCD replacement

Been in that position,
There is no alternative screen, only that screen will fit.
It was made specifically for this laptop.
And as a result no replacement exists..
And it will always be expensive, unless you somehow luck out.

It may well be cheaper to buy another and part it out..

Re: Help Replacement screen for X300

Still abit too high if it was half the price we would be talking,
But at that price its prob better to sell the laptop as it is...

I feared it was the case that only the orginal screens could be used.. but was hoping I was wrong.

Other than the display I would have to say the x300.

If they had put an ips screen in that it would have been one of the best thinkpads ever.

Had a t21, t23 , t41, t43,r50p, t60,x60, x61.x60t flexview incarnations too..

Now the x300, is the the best out of the lot in terms of build and feel, and its just the screen if it was ips it would be the best period.
Don;t really feel the lack of power any for day to day things.

Re: Lenovo may drop X30xl in favor of T410s

They should just do one more iteration of the X3--
But with an IPS screen that would be something ...
Other than the screen they are nearly perfect machines.. in terms of size and feel
Just a pity they came at a time when finances were like this..

Re: How to know the hardware config of my T510

Goto the lenovo site, and do a parts lookup using your machine type and serial number
That should give you a list for the parts on your laptop and from the part numbers you can find out whats what.
