Re: T530 Motherboard Upgrade

I recently did the upgrade however the board was a blank board with no serial number. I transferred the one on my system however there was also no dpk on the board so can no longer use the factory recovery discs. Is there any way around this?

Re: T530 Motherboard Upgrade

One other question with regards to a change in motherboards. Would I have to make sure I use the serial number and product number of my current motherboard if going from integrated to discrete?

T530 Motherboard Upgrade

Question for everyone on this page

Is it possible to upgrade the T530 by replacing the integrated motherboard to a dedicated motherboard? (integrated meaning intel graphics only, dedicated meaning NVIDIA)

Thanks in advance

Re: Sleep sensor under screen bezel issues T530

As you can see from the picture attached, the magnet seems to be missing. Does anyone know if this can be replaced, and if so, how much it would cost to replace this?Image

Sleep sensor under screen bezel issues T530

I recently dropped my T530 and the sensor underneath the screen bezel had the black, I'm assuming, magnet fall off. Does anyone know the best and possibly cheapest way to get the sensor repaired as now my T530 does not recognize when the screen is closed.

Re: Intel Rapid Storage driver and T430 win7 64 bit

The update does strip the Power Manager of the option to automatically power off the optical drive on my T530 with Windows 7 64-bit. This is a reported problem listed on the Lenovo forums through the Lenovo site. Other than that, there are no other problems with the update. So if you use the auto op...
