Re: Problem with upgrading my T400 to an SSD

Instead of some weird software, just boot to some live linux distribution and run gparted. Clone partition and after that just check the same flags like original partition has.

Re: Fastest WiFi card that can be installed in a T60 with modified BIOS??

AR9380 is just an AirPort from C2D MacBooks and iMacs. Works really good with my T400. And with Airport in name on ebay is much cheaper.

Thank You! Flashed only marker, because I already had whitelist removed.

Also, nice to mention - metod for working switchable graphics under Win10 from this link http://win10-on-t500.blogspot.com still works.

Re: T410 - Qualcomm GOBI2000 not seen ..

I had that issue on my T400 with that GOBI. At first, disable device in the bios, boot into OS, restart device and turn it on back again. Second thing when it will still not working - You need to install some Debian based distro and driver for GOBI card. There is two or even three power states for t...

I still miss my T42 for its 4:3 TFT LCD screen, an aspect ratio which lets you be more productive with your daily work.
You don't need to be worried, most of more portable laptops now have 3:2 displays and this is still changing.

Re: Thinkpad X31 Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG

People say it's compatible but I need an IBM FRU model just to be sure. Do I need a bios update? My X31 has bios version 2.11 but I don't have a dock station in case I really need a bios update as I've seen I can't use a USB DVD drive. If you will take out the whitelist from your BIOS, I recommend ...

Re: Phoenix OS or Android on x41 tablet

Only this outdated and bugged version 4.0.3 works well on x41t.

Main problem is lack of SSE3 instructions of our Pentium M CPU. There is some kitkat experimental build but without SSE3 You can't install gapps, so device with this 4.4.4 is useless.

I found! There is no any testpoint for b_sel0 in X41t motherboard.

Once started you can reconnect the battery charger and use the X31 the usual way, at least till the next switch off. Some switching MOSFET in charging ...

Re: X41 Tablet - Installing Win XP Tablet Edition isn't easy!

It will be very hard to get it. Better way is install standard WinXP Pro, licence should work, because XP Tablet is just WinXP Pro with special components, like Media Center Edition and after that install tablet software components from second CD.

Re: T400 LCD Replacement

You can put matrix from T61. It fits.

EDIT: LED screen in T400? It's rare, congratulations :)
The best way is used matte screen in A+ condition, it costs about 30, max 40$ with 2-3 months warranty.
