Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

Strange request, but I'd like to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. I'd like to install a backlit x230 keyboard in my x201 tablet!

Is there an EC mod for that? It would be very useful!
Thanks hammish and friends!

Link to german thread. Large pic warning!
Wacom rotation is unresolved, and that machine desperately needs a daylight LED kit.

what panels are compatible for the fhd and qhd? I'd only go qhd if the quality (not just res) is better than fhd. If anyone knows please share so I dont miss the boat on a kit waiting for qhd's that may not come :D

I also have 2 more X200s machines with the same X200s LED-display (1440x900). None of them has any choppiness. I'd say you have a hardware problem, rather than a driver problem!

No choppiness? I find that hard to believe only because my screen looks pretty rough.

Re: Need x200s windows 7 display driver... Only display option is 50hz

I would say that the "tearing" is probably due to the relatively underpowered Intel graphics processor. I don't have an X200s with me at the moment but I might be able to check later tonight when I get home, although I don't believe that I have Windows 7 on any of them so it won't be an apples-to-a...

Re: Need x200s windows 7 display driver... Only display option is 50hz

Some questions: 1) How much memory is installed in the system?

Re: Need x200s windows 7 display driver... Only display option is 50hz

Download and install Driver Booster 4 for free. It will search for any drivers you are missing and update all of the others. It's much faster and more thorough than a Windows update. http://www.iobit.com/en/driver-booster.php Nope, still 50hz and choppier than anything, seems like a decent utility ...

Need x200s windows 7 display driver... Only display option is 50hz

Tried all of them I could find, they all still say my only available refresh rate is 50hz no matter what battery setting either. There is very bad screen tearing when dragging a window or scrolling so i assume there is something wrong.

Any help is appreciated!

The battery mod doesn't seem to work for ultrabay batteries :( just gave it a try and it wont charge my ultrabay battery in the t430s, but a t420s battery works fine in my t430s.

I understand that I have to modify the .FL2 file but I'm not sure how, any guidance is appreciated. Thanks. In Linux you need to cd to the t430s directory and rename the battery patch...

Re: 3rd party batteries for T430s

You could patch embedded controller firmware to remove battery authentity check. See this thread . Does the patched firmware for the t430s remove the battery check? I'd love to be able to use some cheap 3rd part t420s batteries... Also I can't seem to get the file to flash to begin with on my t430s...

What about a half size wwan card in the smaller PCIe slot, will that work, or is it only capable of wlan? That way I could at just use a regular msata in the larger PCIe slot.
