Re: How to build an advanced FrankenPad

I agree with you. But this is a QXGA panel: https://www.google.com.ng/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwjKhL2V4tTUAhWDuBQKHQBXCP0QjRwIBw&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.alibaba.com%2Fshowroom%2Fqxga-monitor-for-desktop-2048*1536-314m-ips.html&psig=AFQjCNFBgysypFeV0YnEaeczTRd4QH7e3A&ust=149...

Re: How to build an advanced FrankenPad

I agree with you. QXGA has twice the resolution but gradually gets dimmer.

Re: How to build an advanced FrankenPad

Was it a widescreen 16:10 ratio? or standard 4:3?

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Wow! 51nb is beyond overdoing it for IBM ThinkPads! I know that they are really passionate for IBM ThinkPads but for them to squeeze in an Intel Core i7 into a modified T60 motherboard is amazing... I mean that is just like saying putting a 1TB SSD in a ThinkPad T43!
Awesome!

Re: How to build an advanced FrankenPad

Wow! 1280x1024 is a 5:4 aspect ratio resolution. But some scientific genius out there managed to squeeze it into a 4:3 display with no pixel or refresh rate errors. To me, anything higher than QXGA can make someone go 'blind' due to the amount of pixels.

Well, the mentioned mad scientist will have to kidnap a LCD production centre and terrorize its staff with a peeled cucumber to make a 15,1" 4:3 lcd for him.
So funny. Thanks for your advice!!!

Re: How to build an advanced FrakenPad

Thanks! But what about if someone goes scientifically 'mad' and installs a 4000x3000 4K XGA Resolution Panel?

How to build an advanced FrankenPad

Hey ThinkPadders, I was thinking (ThinkPad) whether to build an advanced FrankenPad. I was thinking whether the advanced FrakenPad works well with these materials: A 15" QXGA Display, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, IBM Thinkpad T60 and T61 motherboard, Windows Vista. I do not know whether the Intel GMA Graph...

Re: Can Windows Vista be installed on an IBM Thinkpad R50e?

There was a guy that I knew that had to tweak the registry to activate the Aero theme. However, he said that if you do not do it correctly or the video memory is low, the laptop video card can fail and go black and you will have to reinstall windows again. So I think you have proven your point. :mrg...

Re: Can Windows Vista be installed on an IBM Thinkpad R50e?

But I think there is a way someone can enter the registry and tweak it, tricking Vista into implementing the Aero Theme by default.

Hey Thinkpadders,
I think I have found answer to my question in this Youtube Video Link:

However, I would still like your contributions to the question.
Thanks.

Re: Can Windows Vista be installed on an IBM Thinkpad R50e?

But would it be able to run Windows Aero Theme? I would like to see a demonstration picture.

Can Windows Vista be installed on an IBM Thinkpad R50e?

Hey Thinkpadders!
I just wanted to ask whether Windows Vista can be installed on an IBM Thinkpad R50e?
Because I saw a YouTube video that suggested that maybe it is possible.
