It appears the laptop is dead and is now sitting waiting to be stripped for parts. Old post, but it's a quick update that it's a non-functioning machine because I've replaced and reseated every part, tried other adapters and whatnot but the verdict is that it's dead.

Re: YOUR FIRST COMPUTER?

I was fortunate to receive an old Compaq Armada E500 at the age of 7. Before that, I was using an old Amiga 500 to play Putty! The Compaq sported 1400x1050 and ATI Rage graphics and a P3. It had 64MB RAM, but upgraded to 192MB with Windows 2000 Professional, then XP Pro (which unfortunately downgrad...

Re: Thinkpadders Rejoice (*LARGE PICS*)

I'd only buy if they brought back the original Lenovo logo, the new one is just tacky looking and a little sketchy to the point of the logo looking like a rip-off brand. As a ThinkPadder, I like the Lenovo logo in it's original form. It just doesn't cut it if you colour the ThinkPad logo. Keeping th...

Lenovo 3000 N200 will not boot

Hi, Posting about my N200 and wondering if any of you guys know how to resolve this. Not long ago I dug out my N200 in hopes that it still works, etc and was going to install a different OS on it. But I went to turn it on, it only shown the power light for a few seconds and just goes off. Any ideas ...

Can the X230 now be able to use 32GB Unofficially?

I was wondering about this, because a company released 16GB modules (I don't mean 2 of the 8GB modules) and I was going to ask if anyone has attempted to use more than 16GB in their X230.

I'm probably the only one who finds the new design a bit disgusting. I hate buttonless touchpads.

SL510 convert to L512?

I wonder if it was possible to do so, with various parts around ebay, I could convert the SL510 into a proper true ThinkPad as the design is the same except for the bottom part.

Is it possible? I'm asking out of curiousity.

Re: Why is my T510 beeing randomly at me?

My old Dell did this, but when I changed hard drive it never beeped at me. So I'm guessing it's the hard disk causing the beeping. Have you checked the S.M.A.R.T data with speedfan or acronis drive monitor?

Re: L412 Freezes

If you are suffering freezing issues, none of the above is causing the problem. It seems that a lot of OS installs that were done by the recovery media are deemed dodgy. I'd recommend using CCleaner just to clear out any remaining invalid registry entries after reinstalling. The system you have isn'...
