Re: WANTED: x61t battery recelling in the UK/EU

Considering the age of the laptop, I doubt there are any batteries left that hold a good enough charge. Besides, I'm sure that battery technology has advanced enough that a recelled battery would last longer than a "new" one.

WTB: x61t battery

I use my x61t quite a lot, and am interested in getting a refurbished battery for it so the battery life on my laptop isn't at most an hour. Anyone in Europe up to putting new cells in a battery? I am hesitant to extend it to the USA as the shipping would be killer. a replacement genuine battery for...

Re: X61 Tablet directional buttons don't work in Windows 7

Yeah, there's no response no matter which orientation it's in. The center button likewise does nothing.

X61 Tablet directional buttons don't work in Windows 7

I've gotten almost everything working on my x61t, except the directional buttons on the tablet bezel simply don't do anything when I press them. All the other buttons work, the screen rotate, options and escape button, but the arrow keys do nothing. What could be going wrong here? I'm running Window...

X61t - Tablet pen registers as right click in Linux Mint while in tablet mode?

I'm currently setting up an x61t to use as an art station, but whenever I clip the tablet into tablet mode, the pen no longer registers as a left click, but a right click, when I press it on the screen. This makes using it as a tablet very difficult, and I'm not sure what's causing the problem. Does...

Re: A31-2652 No POST

Well, its a neat computer, I was hoping to just mess around with it, maybe use a dock to add an adlib soundcard and use it for a composing machine. But most of all I just like playing around with old hardware, and the a31 is pretty dang neat.

Re: A31-2652 No POST

Right, I'll try the things suggested, and see if the board is just dead. If it does need a new board, where should I look for one? I've got nothing to lose trying to put a new board in so long as I follow the manual. I really like the A31, and it would be a huge shame if it died completely, especial...

Re: A31-2652 No POST

OK, I tried that, it got to the BIOS splash screen, but hung when I tried to enter the BIOS menu, and then it returned to being unable to POST at all. Also, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do about batteries for old laptops anymore, if I can't buy aftermarket ones, since the genuine ones will have...

Re: A31-2652 No POST

The funny thing is I haven't used it in a long time - the battery is completely dead, but last time I turned it on (five years ago) it was fine. It flashes all its LEDs, backlight turns on, and has a blank screen with backlight, no other activity,much the same as yours, kfzhu. I can't test it on bat...

A31-2652 No POST

I recently received a Thinkpad a31 from my parents house. Last time I used it, the cmos battery had died, so this time (years later) I replaced the cmos battery. But now when I turn it on, with the exception of a couple of times when I managed to make it go to the bios boot screen, it won't even pos...
