Hi, you have nvidia or intel graphic card used? Thanks
All of mine have Intel graphics. I haven't experienced any issues with them so far. :)

Re: How many interest in a WQHD (2K) kit for T420s and T430s?

Is there anything upcoming for non-S T420/T430's? I'd be interested in a WQHD kit for an S model but a FHD or WQHD kit for a regular T420/T430 would be way cooler IMO. :mrgreen:

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I took delivery of an SPB3, but I think it's been damaged during transit - there's weird marks under the surface of the screen, and the panel itself looks a little bit twisted... :oops: Sadly I can't even test it as I don't have my FHD kit yet. :P where did you buy it ?

Re: Time for a new ThinkPad - can't decide

I would suggest a T440P, they have 2 DIMM slots, 1080P displays, good cooling and the choice of a 9 cell battery! The touchpad swap that Thinkpad4by3 mentioned is also a lot easier, you just have to remove the palmrest/keyboard assembly to change it IIRC. I've seen them go for £200GBP (around $260US...

Re: T61 -- Suddendly, mysteriously, a one fingered swipe on the trackpad causes all windows to tile

As fun as it is to bash Windows 10, I think it may have to do with the multi-touch settings on the touch/trackpad? I reckon your TP driver was changed my M$. Maybe try re-installing, or even uninstalling the TP driver and see how it goes.

Re: SSD Drive Install Guide - T-61?

Your SSD will screw into the caddy just like a regular 2.5" HDD, and it should include a plate that makes it thicker (so it is as thick as a regular HDD) but I doubt you will need to use it. You can just place the caddy back in the same rubber rails and it should go back in the machine just fine. Th...

Re: Confused on downloading drivers after fresh Win7 install

Thanks. Is it the ThinkVantage System Update? What about the Lenovo Service Bridge? How does that work? Yup! Don't bother with the LSB, the only Lenovo software I download on my machines alongside the drivers is Lenovo Power Manager since you can do some pretty nifty stuff with it, such as set cust...

Re: Confused on downloading drivers after fresh Win7 install

In pretty much all cases it's best to download the latest driver, but my advice would be to install Lenovo System update as it tells you which drivers you need and lets you choose what to install. :thumbs-UP:

Re: Why does the T60 have a centered LCD but the T61 and T500 not?

I think that's the reason, though I reckon it's just Lenovo trying to be cheap by making it slightly cheaper to design. Dozens of the T61s we have at work (14" 4:3) have had the smaller hinge on the right side snap, they're rubbish! :P If you're wondering whether you can use T60 antennas on a T61 an...

Re: Windows 7 or XP up to date T61 ISO's?

Since that SL410 was a link to the Piratebay, you may want to do a VERY deep scan for malware ! That's a very good idea. I scanned the install files with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes, all clear. I did a full scan within the newly installed OS with MSE, I'll install Malwarebytes on it tomorrow ...

Re: Windows 7 or XP up to date T61 ISO's?

Excellent tip 4uk4a! I just tried the SL410 recovery discs and they worked great on my T61 board. I just had to uninstall a bunch of bloat and install a fingerprint driver but it's activated fully, I've just got to install some Windows updates now. :thumbs-UP:
