Re: X201 screen upgrade(1900*1200)

Looks like somone made an adapter similar to the X230/X220 to fit an 12.9" lcd on the X201

Wonder if this is still possible to buy.

Re: x220/x230 FHD/ WQHD 2K mSATA/USB3.0

Thanks for answering my questions. You can extract the bios from the provided chip and and flash it on yours, but I think the intended use is to physically replace the chip. I thought the bios for the X30 series and newer had to be modified individually? Do i get a new mac adress if i use the the fi...

Re: x220/x230 FHD/ WQHD 2K mSATA/USB3.0

Patching is quite easy, worse part is creating an account on 51nb to download the files ;) PM me if you want a google drive / dropbox link. Whole process : Update to 2.68 with official installer. Extract the bios, place it in the x230_bios_patch folder, name it x230.bin and run patch.bat. It should...

Re: x220/x230 FHD/ WQHD 2K mSATA/USB3.0

Bought a WQHD kit from China through Superbuy. With the kit there is a loose bios chip, probably preprogrammed. But they also sendt me the bios file on email. Guess this will remove lvds and open advanced menu. Have seen further up in this thread there is a link on how to make the bios file, but the...

X61 SXGA+ when to flash bios

When is the best time to flash sxga+ bios when upgrading?

Can i flash when xga lcd is still fitted?
Or will picture dissappear if i do so?

Or can i mount sxga+ lcd on motherboard with original bios and still get picture and stability to flash sxga+ bios?

Thanks in advance.

Re: X60s/61s Prismatic

Anyone know what kind of form the cells inside this battery have?
Got hold of a X61S with this battery.
Guess it could not be 18650 cells.
