R500 Screen In T500

Hello, recently my R500 has died, I suspect that it is the motherboard. I was wondering if I could put the R500’s LED screen in a T500 if the same size?
Thanks

Re: R500 and No Sound

Ok, so i just got to booting off of a fresh Ubuntu Linux drive and tested the audio. So far, there is more audio then before... The headphone jack works now... still no sound from the speakers though :( Also, it seems that the graphical artifacting is gone too, so were making progress...

Re: R500 and No Sound

Ok, I will definitely try that out soon, is there a common problem with the R500's audio chip? Also, there is artifacting occurring during windows animations.

Re: W500 Display Issues?

I have A TON of extra ThinkPad parts that would be compatible with that system, so that's really not much of a problem...
So, what do you think is wrong with them?

Re: Computrace Problems?

Hmm... It didn't show a password at start, but after removing the bios battery it does... I did the pin 4 and 5 bipass and I can't seem to remove the password, so I'm kinda at a loss...

Re: Parts for Core 2 Quad Mod

Sorry, another forum member is buying both the CPU and RAM, if anything happens, I'll sell it to you.
And yes, the RAM has the SPDs flashed for an Nvidia board, can be flashed for an Intel on though. No, the cpu is no an engineering sample.

Re: Safe Date or Not?

Are you sure, here is a quote rom the T61 wiki?

"Since there were many production lines and many factories producing these chips, the actual date on the chip isn't a conclusive way to demonstrate the chip is the improved version. The date on the laptop itself is the key factor."
