Re: Artifacts/distortion occasionally when playing youtube videos in HD (T61p)

Tried most of those programs and they don't run on Windows 10 at least.. I also think the T61p is totally locked out in terms of software changing the GPU voltage... Dump winbugs 10! Also if you don't mind 16:10 wide screen, get a W500 or W700 instead. 512MB/1GB vRAM is not enough but definitely mu...

Re: Artifacts/distortion occasionally when playing youtube videos in HD (T61p)

vRAM size is the problem.
X3100 would perform better.
but even x3100 is limited to 384MB and that's why I gave up on X61 and T61

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

I guess I need to look deeper into the eDP protocol. I understand the above, I just don't understand why it the adapter board cares (or has to care) the difference between a B140HAN or an "anything" that takes eDP as input. I would have assumed the actual display signal signaling between any eDP in...

Do You have plan to make WQHD kit for X1 Carbon?
The combination of T420s WQHD kits and X1c Carbon are tested working. However the cable is just too hard to fit in. And besides it's beyond Javi's stated specifications.

Re: X1 Carbon 1st Gen FHD upgrade kits

I am also selling B140HAN01.2/B140HAN01.3 with the kits. Price is $50 each.

For those of you in USA you can just purchase two kits and include a msg saying it's for a kit and a panel.

For those of you elsewhere please PM me for details. shippign should be around $30

This is the X1 Carbon that I used to test my FHD kits. I got it for cheap and the condition is like as if it has been to Iraq or Syria. I'd rate it 5/10. It has a few broken latches/ missing screws/ V key broken But overall functionality is not affected. The only thing is that speaker will suddenly ...

Okay, so no fix for those of us (myself included) with FHD kits for the T420 that flicker?? :(
Javi-Jie was close to a solution using soft PCB, but as you guessed the cost is pretty high, even higher than the WQHD kits.
I think I have send you a refund back then?
