Re: Pentium 4-M stuck at 1.2 GHz

To be clear, what system are we talking about here? T2x cannot implement P4 so I'm assuming that you are doing this on a T30. If so, then it's likely that the missing (dead) battery is preventing the system from running at full speed. Try installing a known good battery and re-measure the system sp...

Re: Cannot install windows

Which T60 CPU are you using. It is likely a T2400 which is 32bit only, not 64 which those OS are likely.

Re: Starting an IBM ThinkPad Collecton on a Budget?

I search eBay about 3 times a day looking for old computers. If you want, if I see a TP that fits your range of models you would like, I can send links your way.

Refer to thinkwiki.org to find models to look out for.

What is wrong with your current keyboard. Touchpad, can't tell you, I'm a Trackpoint user. Keyboard, well if you would like to replace your T60p keyboard with an HP Stream BestBuy clearance sale keyboard, be my guest. Personally, just fetch the cash.

1) replacement mobos should be conducted on this forum or eBay ONLY.

2) check the FRU or PN on your mobo. Then get that exact mobo on eBay.

Ahhh..ok. You'd probably only do it when pigs fly(without jetpacks). I despise the way the X250+ buttons click forward, not back like every other TP.

Re: A31p - a decade later (LONG)

It was simply more expandable, given its two bays as opposed to one on a T4x. Back in those days the hard drives were small, and the ability to shove in an extra HDD while keeping the DVD was a great option. Quite handy for copying stuff from one disk to another as well. The world of mSATA has made...

Re: Trackpoint moving by itself - Keyboard connector not seated properly?

The trackpoint moving by itself means either it is internally broken and is calibrating itself wrong(never seen it before on 40+ TP's) or the more likely issue is the cap is banging against the Trackpoint and making it move. Try removing the cap and seeing if it stops.

Welcome to the fourm! You picked a nice entry level Thinkpad, a durable workhorse. That X201 will serve you well. 1) For an X201, flashing a custom BIOS is really unnecessary.
