Re: Vertical lines on 390E.

Nope, the EDID didnt even exist on TPs until the T6x series AFAIK and if it did use EDID, the screen would show up ALL white or ALL black depending on if it is TN or IPS respectively.

Re: Have new P51 arriving Tuesday.

Nope, just a lack of indicator lights. Once a Thinkpadder is always a Thinkpadder. I had to use a Mac this summer but my Trusty X220/230 will always beat my 2013 MBA anyway, and you should feel great to get back into good keyboards, more ports, and of course, the little nub we all know and love!

Thinkpad 570E LCD testing

I found the LCD screen from my old 570E. I would like to see if it still works. Can I plug it into a newer machine like a T410 or will its LED driver fry it? Is there a machine that can test it safely?

Re: T61p won't boot after motherboard swap

Well, you got a dead board. It happens from time to time. I got one too that was dead for my W700. Did the FRU match exactly and did it come with a CPU. Some CPUs dont work with certain boards AFAIK.

Re: Thinkpadders Rejoice (*LARGE PICS*)

Surprised they cant make the BGA into an LGA and it would be cheap to make 1 processor and the buisness machines can just have a LGA socket. Add balls to the LGA CPU. Problem solved.

600 series keyboards are the best compared to any other thinkpad I have used. Travel, crispness, response, no flex, really all of it is excellent. The other keyboard that comes close is the one in the X300/X301 IMO. The 701 keyboard feels nice, but it isn't really a comparison. I've personally neve...

Sometimes it is something SO trivial that you'd never find it without hours examining both machines (new & old). Like, the software requires dot net 2.5 to run, and the new machine only has 4.x installed on it. And the updates don't roll-up everything cumulatively you need the old one there. Little...

Re: Dell Inspiron 3000 (1997) F1 key no longer functioning

Do any other keys work? When you boot into 95, can you use a keyboard check utility to see if the F1 key is truly dead, and if any others are affected. The trace that goes through the F1 key may be broken.

The only thing it lacks is resolution, I will admit that.
And I don't think there is any rework possibilities. With screen of that size you simply are limitted to XGA.
Swap the lid with a 600 12.1" Lid, add 12.1" SXGA+. Done.
