Re: Recovery disks for my T42 (2373)

I found a set on archive.org, however It seems from your comment https://archive.org/details/Disc2of7January2005PN24R7734XPPSP2ENFRUPN24R7684 that you merely copied the .isos onto a disc, as opposed to burning them onto a disk T43 recovery discs may also work for ye: https://archive.org/details/39K...

Re: w2k t500

The SD card itself is detected under XP x86, but not under XP x64 ? Under XP 32-bit the SD card was my d:\ drive and had "progs" directory on it with my favourite programs. XP 32-bit detected the SD card even before Ricoh was installed. Linux detects it, too. If I insert the SD card as a USB stick,...

Re: w2k t500

Welcome to Windows XP Professional x64 Thank you for your moral support. The Conexant driver you recommended works and we have sound. SD card is acting strange. The Ricoh drivers installed, and device manager lists Ricoh drivers and claims they work as intended; but the machine does not recognize S...

Re: w2k t500

Lately I thought I would upgrade T500 to XP 64-bit. Installation went fine; display drivers, network drivers, fine.

No sound driver would co-operate, no SD card would show.

Does anyone know if there is 64-bit Ricoh and Conexant driver that works on T500 ?

You can exchange the panels themselves,
Thank you. The main thing is that I can use the spare LCD in either of them

Re: t61 predicament

That CPU is not suited for the T61. Thank you for your co-operation. I returned T7300 to his place, and posting this note using T61. I learned my lesson. It is simpler (and better for me) to buy another T61. I was misled by this post that T7xxx, T8xxx, T9xxx are interchangable: https://forums.lenov...

t61 predicament

Hinges needed to be replaced. I replaced them. Bright idea occured to me; since the machine is already open, why not replace the processor with T9400. I applied generous portion of heat grease, put back every crew. When I turn on power, the fan turns around about five times, then nothing; a few seco...

Re: w2k t500

I only started using/installing XP a year ago; after the screen on my hard worked laptop woke up cracked in the middle one morning (for no particular reason, in my opinion) paid for 6 XP coa stickers over the years, to use NT 5 and Slackware I did install NT 5 on t500; it does operate, but no driver...

Thanks for your response Just for the fun of it I would have liked a recovery dvd; after the dvd re-installs XP, there is i386 directory on the hard-drive; that can be copied and used for future installation (on Lenovo machines) pre-activated --- at least that is what my Toshiba DVD does on Toshiba ...

I would like a ThinkPad recovery set that contains XP; I have a T500, but T61 will do fine if i386 folder can be accessed
