Re: W700 Reliability

Hi, I'm typing it from w700 with an extra screen. I'm happy with it as copywriter and photoamateur. The extra screen is a win here. This laptop still provides performance and extra stuff like pro-grade colour reproduction, stylus to do some basic sketches and the general comfortability the thinkpads...

Re: memory upgrade for x230

It’s completely right what you have there, it shows 800 MHz “per channel”. The modules are dual channel. So it makes 1600 MHz if summed up...

What I’m not really sure is if you do need extra 8 gig working memory or larger storage?

Cheers

Re: Advice regarding W700

Beeps were related to the dvd drive. When absent or replaced by the hdd bay the beeps are gone.

I’ve run some intel tests released after recent leaks and to my bf relief my ME is not affected. But just in case I did took out the wlan and bluetooth modules. To go online I plug an usb wlan adapter in.

Re: Advice regarding W700

Sooo, three batteries later I start to believe that shutdown issue is common with third party batteries. I tested cells from different sources and noone could provide me with constant power supply above 80W. In every test case the laptop shuts down if some heavy processing kicks in (no matter if cpu...

Re: Advice regarding W700

Thanks for answer! Boot into Windows, then turn up the audio-volume, test using Control Panel/Sound/Sounds tab. When you boot next time you should hear those beeps. Doesn’t help. It is two series of five maybe four short beeps while the laptop boots, second one just before bootloader kicks in. As fo...

Advice regarding W700

Hi, weeks ago I got a second hand w700ds. Loaded with Q9300, colorimeter and digitizer... I’ve been looking for one like this for some time. I took it home and put extra 4 gigs of RAM from my old x201, replaced hitachi drive with an SSD. Then I did a fresh install of 7 pro and most recent updates. A...

Re: X230T, hackintosh, and coreboot

I've been trying to set GRUB payload to chainload Clover, without success. I think that even if possible coreboot wouldn't be able to communicate with darwin kernel well
