FS: ThinkPad W541

This listing is for a Lenovo ThinkPad W541 I purchased personally as a CTO (Configured To Order) model with mostly the highest specs. This ThinkPad was used in smoke-free environment as a compiling server, and it proves to provide great performance and stability. The machine is in great shape as it ...

Re: Dock II adapter for 701C on eBay

Looks like it will leave a big gap between the 701 and the dock though... P.S. How good it would be if it fits on a Dock I... No gap. If I remember correctly, the adapter gets tucked inside the dock and folds out to attach to the 701C, which sits flush on top of the dock itself. Dock II only, of co...

I have a complete, beautiful unit with working butterfly keyboard, but the mobo seems dead.

PM me if interested; I can share some photos. I don't think I will take any time to rebuild it.
Sorry I think I would stick to working ones... Thanks for the offer though!

WTB: ThinkPad 701C

Hi all,

Currently in a look out for a 701C in decent shape, had one all scratched up and the floppy port was broken... Pain.

This WTB is for a 701C and its recovery media if anyone has it. PM's welcome.

Best Regards,

Re: Removing password from a 360C?

So it turned out to be HDD password, is there anyway to remove the password without swapping out the hard drive? Couldn't find anything online about this that does not involve having the original password... FWIW, I searched for 755/760 info as they are more popular, and 360 is just too easy to be o...

Re: Removing password from a 360C?

Power-on passwords can generally be removed by taking out the CMOS (aka, backup) battery. Some of the older systems also relied on inserting a jumper. This has been published in most HMMs. However, if there is also a supervisor password enabled at the same time, this can "brick" the system as it wo...

Re: LF: A31 or A31p Screen Bezel/Assembly

Please specify if you need a 15" bezel or 14.1". I assume you need 15" as for the flexview display but just to confirm. And yea I'm trying to find flexview too but it is just simply hard.
