I had a similar issue when building a W520, before I added the palmrest, the trackpoint would work intermittently. When I got a palmreat and attached the touchpad, the synaptics drivers started working, and the trackpoint was working good. Perhaps the connection for the touchpad is coming loose, and...

Re: W520 Alarm sound, then no post on power on. :help:

Sorry I should have been more clear, I've tried everything without the battery already.and have now tried pretty much every combination of ram, and even tried some from other machines. The same thing happens. I don't think the problem is with the ram, it only does the 1-3-3-1 beep code when there is...

Bei...

Re: W520 with 2820QM CPU - DDR3L "Mac" memory?

My W520 is running completely on mixed memory (I brought a kit for Mac memory for the lower price but didn't get all the same modules), two of the modules are DDR3L, 1600Mhz, for 1.35v. The other two are standard DDR3 1330Mhz 1.5v. All the memory is running at 1330Mhz, and I haven't had any issues w...

Re: Lenovo T410 won't power on with battery inserted

ajkula66 Okay, thank you, I had a look for listings here but only found spam ones offering low spec T400s for 4499.99DKK (About 700USD!). 100USD is about 600DKK, and that sounds like a reasonable price, so now I know a good price to sell at, Thank you. Thinkpad4by3 Considering the price of shipping,...

Re: T41p Windows XP Meetinghouse Installer

If you're still wondering what it could be, some research tells me that it is from Meetinghouse Data Communications Inc, who appear to have supplied the software for the AEGIS network security solution for the thinkpad. It is installed with the network drivers, so I guess that the drivers need it to...

Re: Lenovo T410 won't power on with battery inserted

Thank you for the help! I do have a couple of T410 motherboards still in the parts pile, I guess I'll move everything over to one of those. Sorry to ask again in the same question thread, but do you have any figures on how much these would sell for? They have i5-540s, 500GB HDDs with Windows 7 pro, ...
