How much soldering does V5 involve? Is the sense wire still an issue?

Re: Windows 98 wifi adapter for T42

That's a pretty good resource. Unfortunately, it recommends the SparkLAN WL-850R wireless card, which is rare and not available for purchase. I dug up this link: https://www.wireless-driver.com/de/ralink-rt61-abg-wlan-card-driver/ These are recommended alternative wireless cards: Ralink Turbo Wirele...

Re: Windows 98 wifi adapter for T42

It's for gaming purposes, so Win98 takes priority over Win2000.

Is there no way to get WPA2 working on Windows 98?

Any update on the WQHD screen adapters, now that Chinese new years is over? I have a T430S that could use a new screen.

Re: T420s/T430s FHD/WQHD upgrade kits pre-order thread

Hi everyone, I finally jumped the apple ship and bought a t420!! I'm reading that screen upgrade should be a #1 priority. Are there any FHD boards still available for the non-s version? If not, is the only screen upgrade option to get HD+ 1600x900? Link: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/T420_and_T430_...

Re: T420s/430s FHD/2k upgrade

Yes please, I need a 2K kit for my T430s that doesn't break the dock connector.

I've seen some kits that break dock connection functionality, so I'm hoping that I can get a 1440p screen while keeping the dock.

Re: What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

Obviously these... I was mildly considering doing it myself, it doesn't look too bad. It's definitely more fun to do things yourself. Of course, many men have said "it doesn't look too bad" right before breaking everything, so maybe as a backup I'll buy another panel and inverter and LCD cable and ...

Re: What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

Nevermind, I did more research and it looks like the QXGA IDTech IAQX10N lcds are limited to 50Hz, and apparently are dimmer than the rated nits. I guess I'm sticking with the BOE Hydis UXGA panel, so I just ordered that (from the ebay link above). What are the best instructions for installing one o...

Re: What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

Ok, I'm getting a few dollars in my tax returns, so I'm back here.

What's the best chance at getting a QXGA resolution display? I know they're pretty rare, but I'm trying to get my hands on one.

Re: What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

Well, yeah, but X220/T430 screens are sheer junk when compared to this one. Excellent price for that Hydis as well. You're correct for the default screens, but putting a 1440p IPS into a T430 is pretty awesome. Can't complain too much there. You were inquiring about the LED-lit panels. Neither of t...

Re: What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

Nothing is really "readily available" nowadays. The best panel to get is the Hydis UXGA with LED backlighting. It will require a cable/inverter modification and is likely to set you back a pretty penny. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HYDIS-HV150UX2-100-15-inch-UXGA-1600-1200-AFFS-LED-backlit-LCD-panel-New...

What LCD options do I have for a 15" T60p these days?

I see a lot of old posts on this forum, but it's hard to tell what is still readily available these days. There's the original panels from IBM/Lenovo, mentions of taking panels from Dell laptops, Boeing 787 panels, etc. I'm looking for the best panel you can put into a 15" 4:3 T60p these days, on th...

I preordered this kit the first day it was available, so @RMSMajestic great news to hear that you're shipping out the kits now!

Is there a schedule for when WQHD 1440p kits are going to be available? That's what I'm REALLY waiting for. Thanks!

The WQHD kits pre-order will be open as soon as I received confirmations from Javi-Jie
Yay, do you have a rough estimate of when you'd get confirmation on buying a WQHD kit? I'm interested in a WQHD kit for a T430s, so I hope it's available soon.
