It says that ms issued a "compatibility block" on 9 of the 10 major issues. WTF is a "compatibility block", is it a sw switch in the winblows update that will stop the normally forced auto install of updates for some reason? Blocks on realtek, synaptics audio, intel integrated graphics... Isn't tha...

Re: Is this P50 worth the price?

Did your laptop come with the backlit or non-backlit keyboard?
The Backlit P50/P51 keyboards are the best when you get used to the off-centering. P53 keyboard is clearly inferior.
However I got one P51 with a non-backlit keyboard. The trackpoint was stiff and feel was horrible.

Re: P50 - Docking station and sound stutter in games (DPC latency) - Solution!

Based on your other post i would suspect there could be a glithch with your dock.
If you have a simple test case that triggers the issue I can try to replicate on my P50/dock.

Re: I've searched for my P50 issue(s) here but no luck...

Does any of the problems exhibit themselves when you connect directly to the laptop bypassing the dock?
Have you tried another dock? If it is under warranty a would try to replace it.

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

I just bought and installed 1080p IPS combo - screen and a conversion board from AliExpress (cheaper, than advertised by OP). I didn't fully assemble my T430, yet, just connected display and keyboard, but already want to share my WOW! No flickering, no tearing, everything is flawless. Btw, what is ...

Re: SL510 and Windows 7 64b - no Windows updates

I have a factory image W7Pro-64b on my SL-510. However no windows updates are being downloaded. Any ideas? All Windows services are operating. What IBM app is causing this? Did you upgrade/clone the HDD? In that case I had to install a newer version of the intel matrix storage driver for windows up...

Mine was a 2nd I3 machine... Salvaged an I5 from a broken computer. Now has 16gb DDR3L (I know I'm supposed to get DDR3 but this works too). I'm just worried about TDP As long as you have the latest BIOS, running the CPU is not a problem. 90W power bric works perfectly. You need not to worry about ...

Re: ThinkPad T530i i7 upgrade

I currently have a 2nd Gen i5 which I feel like it is downgrading the motherboard, if I put a 45W i7 quad-core processor, do I have to replace the heatsink and power supply? No I run a T530 with i7-3940XM and NVS 5400 from a 90'w PS without any problem. I did not change sink, just applied fresh coo...

Re: All T430 screens compared *SMALL PICS*

During a repair I have seen Samsung and AUO screens side by side for the T430 (1600x900) I vastly preferred the AUO in the flesh, seems fuller in color and less screen door. I have not seen the LG in person, but I would not recommend Samsung over AUO. In fact I switched over from Samsung as my repla...
