Re: LF: UXGA mod for t60 14.1

Sorry, so will the pin clipping be necessary if installing this in what was originally a T61p 4:3 SXGA+ model?

Re: Windows 7 on T25 - any "real life" experiences ?

The BSOD on Sleep was related to an NVMe Driver I was using with a non-OEM SSD. There is no BSOD on Sleep with the correct driver. I updated my original post to remove that comment.

Re: Windows 7 on T25 - any "real life" experiences ?

Yes, there were actually two T470 flavors. The Kaby Lake one does not have Win7 drivers, but the earlier Skylake one does. I downloaded the drivers from the Lenovo website. I used Vanilla Win7 x64 SP1 media, and used a process similar to the one outlined by theterminator93. Interestingly, there is a...

Re: Windows 7 on T25 - any "real life" experiences ?

I've been running Windows 7 x64 since January, I alluded to it here: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=813024#p813024 I have been meaning to write up a "HowTo" once I worked out all the kinks, but have not had the time. Key points though: - except for UltraNav, Intel GPU, Thunderbolt, and S...

Re: T25 Frankenpad?

I guess I'm ambitious ;) Have people demonstrated it's *not* compatible with the T470? I guess that would certainly be informative. But I also guess there might not be much incentive for someone to try it, unless they have both systems handy. It definitely seems to me that the T470 and T25 are very ...

Re: T25 Frankenpad?

Looks like the T480 is out now: https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-t-series/ThinkPad-T480/p/22TP2TT4800 The dimensions are identical to the T470, I might bet that the T25 keyboard would be compatible. When they publish the T480 FRU BOM we can check if the T470 and T480 keyboards...

Re: UltraNav SK-8845 Windows 8 drivers?

This guy claims that the 18.0.x series drivers from Lenovo also work for this keyboard: http://martin.iturbide.com/2013/07/thinkpad-full-size-ultranav-usb-keyboard.html While they installed out-of-the-box for me, they caused the Synaptics Control Panel Applet to crash (Win 8.1 x64).

Hasn't blown up yet. :wink: I also successfully installed Windows 7 x64 and can elaborate on that a bit if any other Luddites out there are interested. Ludites? I have a friend who ...

Re: 4ZU0Q68726: ThinkPad 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition Mechanical Keyboard Red

So do you think/know it's a legitimate Lenovo product? Or did this eBay seller just slap a thinkpad sticker with some magic marker on a Tex Yoda and mark up the price?

I noticed this on eBay:

ThinkPad 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition Mechanical Keyboard Red 4ZU0Q68726

https://www.ebay.com/itm/273029173181

Does anyone know anything more about this product? Is it legit? Will it be released in the US?

Re: T25 Frankenpad?

I wound up answering my own question, so I thought I'd post an update in case anyone finds it useful. I successfully "upgraded" my T25 to use the famed B140HAN01.3 LCD panel. I just had to get the non-touch LCD cable for the T470. According to the T470 FRU BOM document, the FRUs for that cable are: ...

T25 Frankenpad?

Has anyone yet figured out whether the upper from a T470 or T470s is swappable onto the T25 base?

I'm thinking about getting a non-touch FHD or WQHD options available on the T470/T470s.

T430s-T420s LED sub card Swap

Firstly, I'm Wondering if anyone has tried installing a T420s LED sub card (04W1696/04W1697) in a T430s (04W3934). The goal being to get a dedicated bluetooth LED indicator. I have the parts to try it, so if no one else has tried it, I'm wondering if someone could tell me what's the worst that could...

I was wondering if anyone in the forum has tried the relatively new "me_cleaner" to remove Intel Management Engine from the bios.

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

I just did this swap on my T430s using the transplant-keyboard-bezel-from-t420s method. I found that the cable for the touchpad wasn't long enough to reach the connector on the motherboard and also wasn't properly aligned. I peeled back the black adhesive covering on the underside of the touchpad an...
