Re: Windows XP x64 on T520

Well if that's the case, it sounds like it's not worth the trouble. Ah well, I'll just keep Windows 7. Thanks for the info!

Windows XP x64 on T520

Does anyone have any experience with installing Windows XP x64 Edition on a T520? If so, did you have any trouble? Were there any drivers you couldn't install? And finally, how did it run? I have a T520 that I'd like to install XP on and still be able to use the full 8GB of RAM. (Yes, I know XP is o...

Re: Firefox 58 is fast

I've been a Firefox user for a long time, and I love the Quantum update! It really is a lot faster and smoother than the older versions. A couple add-ons took a hit, but most of the ones I used were updated to work with the new version. I just wish it worked with XP (but I can't really complain abou...

Re: ThinkPad T23 Arrival

Just following up, it's been about a month. According to the battery applet on the Windows taskbar, I am averaging about 3 hours on the battery with the default IBM power settings. This is going to fluctuate between 2.5 and 3 if I have a browser window and Office document open, which is my typical ...

Re: ThinkPad 600 PCMCIA Problems (Win 95)

Well, I managed to finally get it going! I found a guide to installing Win95 here: http://ps-2.kev009.com/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips/ca9e.htm It seems that installing the PC card slots before the rest of the drivers is what made it work. I'm guessing it has something to do with how Windows assigns resour...

Re: ThinkPad 600 PCMCIA Problems (Win 95)

I just installed the configuration utility and it acts like the drivers aren't installed. Then the same thing happens where if I install them, the utility shows them as enabled until I reboot the machine. It seems like something should be initializing during Windows startup that isn't, and when I re...

ThinkPad 600 PCMCIA Problems (Win 95)

Hi all, This is my first post here, though I've been lurking for a while, and I've been collecting ThinkPads for a few years now. I'm trying to install Windows 95 on my 600, and for some reason I can't get the PC card slots to work. It says in the device manager, "Texas Instruments PCI-1250 Cardbus ...
