Re: T60 touchpad flex cables

PM sent, thanks. I guess the main lesson here is to be very gentle with that cable while disassembling the actual touchpad plate, as peeling off the protective tape from the back of it introduces side tension that is strong enough to cause a small tear on the flex cable Here's a photo of the tear: w...

T60 touchpad flex cables

Does anyone have a few T60 touchpad cables for sale? Fingerprint version. They do seem to be extremely fragile at the bend by the touchpad connector.. And eBay doesn't seem to have any at all

That is exactly the right info to fix it, thanks! I think it should be as a pinned thread, since this BOD issue seems to be quite prevalent

Dead T20

This might have been touched upon in other topics, but I couldn't find it through search. Feel free to move it to a relevant thread, if that already exists. My T20 doesn't power up at all, just flashes HDD LED at the same time as I press power, but doesn't even try to boot up. It all started up as r...

T420s T430s potential LCD upgrade

So I've googled left and right to find an alternative to the not-so-reliable and not-the-most-financially-feasible IPS upgrade, and found info on potential alienware m14x r2 panels to be reused on T420s and T430s. Found it's part number being LP140WD2-TLG1. Ordered one on eBay, specifically stating ...

Re: Frankenpad lives! Question about T60 battery

No, this is wrong. They do know very well of they are doing - it's called planned obsolescence. Exactly, it's greed, not stupidity, that drives this :) I've seen stuff about rebuilding laptop batteries, but have never done it. Is this a practical option for my 9 cell battery? I've tried re-celling ...

Re: T60 w/X1400 GPU and Windows 10; driving external WUXGA LCD?

And when it comes to the color reproduction - it depends on what kind of screens you had to work before I work with 1-2 new screens each day, as I fix computers as a hobby-job, so I compare this IPS to the general LCD experience out there :) It does make sense to blame the aging CCFL, and luckily t...

What driver have worked for you. May be direct link can help others. I used the German modded driver that Pokrzept linked to his dropbox.

Unfortunately all this modded driver achieves is a dozen of BSODs and hours burned trying to make it work.. Crashes with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (atikmdagB.sys) during every install attempt, either through included installer or manually. Then once restarted gives another BSOD of SYSTEM_SERVICE_E...

T60 w/X1400 GPU and Windows 10; driving external WUXGA LCD?

Hello again fellow ThinkPadders. I have acquired a pristine condition T60 15" 4:3 with an IPS display and x1400 GPU. Works like a charm (almost) and is overall an impressive difference from my totally basic T60 14" 4:3 with XGA screen, aside from the compromised portability. However the beefier GPU ...

Re: v5200 on Windows 10

Does that allow you to install just the drivers, or does it softmod it to x1600? Cause you can easily install original Lenovo drivers from 2007, but the thing is still slow on any OpenGL application (and I mean games) without softmodding it to x1600. It had barely 5-10 more FPS that GMA950 on Morrow...

Re: v5200 on Windows 10

Personally, I wouldn't use W10 or W8 on anything older than the T410 generation. Too many issues with drivers, overheating, and instability. Even if you solve them, performance usually isn't as good as W7. It would probably be less hassle to get a 4:3 T61 and swap in the lid assembly + hinges from ...

There is a version of the 5200 graphics driver for Windows 7, but it's a bit hard to find as it's hidden in the Windows update file server. Although, there's a thread on this forum for it. I've tested it on my vintage T60p with Windows 7 a few months ago, and it seemed to work fine. I'll see if I c...

Re: v5200 on Windows 10

I tried the manual driver install, and while interwebs suggest that it should do it, it is no longer possible after Win10 got the 1511 update. The thing is my T60 is a 14" 4:3 screen, so I'm out of luck with T61 motherboards. Probably will just wait around until I get a decent deal for a T60 x1400 m...
