new WSXGA+ and inverter
I think it's WXGA+ :)

I have a working motherboard for this one, so if in need it would come easy to build a working unit out of it.
Fixed, Thanks

I fully agree. Upgrading to WUXGA is about $50

FS: Parts for a W700 + Other parts

I am considering selling parts for my W700. I have a complete machine, just that from what I can tell the motherboard is damaged. You can take the whole machine for $200 OBO (Please do offer!), or make an offer for parts. I also have a 230W adapter but I don't think I want to sell it unless someone ...

Where do I get X61 batteries?

I have an X61 but it appears the battery is dead. It reads 49% so even if it isn't, I need a new one. Where do I get batteries? Hoping to avoid knockoffs but I might just get one. Posted to Marketplace

Re: LF: 6,3x4,0mm coaxial connector (no pin)

Can you show a good picture of such a connector? I still can't figure out what exactly you are talking about. Is that a variant of the standard 20V barrel connector? May I suggest you also look for different 'writing' ways with a space before mm ? 6,3x4,0 mm (European) 6.3x4.0 mm (American) 6.3*4.0...

Title says it all.

I'm hunting for such connector to build a W700/W701 power adapter.

I'd be interested in 170W and 230W power adapter units for those models as well.
I have a 230W charger. You have a W700's motherboard, correct?

Why go 1080p? It's a TN panel. Go for the 3K IPS one! Get the VVX16T028J00 panel. You may also need a new cable.

Nope. All the large bottom screws are the same.

The longer ones should go to sockets in the middle, front of the laptop. The shorter fixed there w...

The CMOS battery might be dead. You can boot without it, just that the BIOS resets on power disconnect and there's errors at startup that can be bypassed.

Re: Dead W700. Ideas?

Not a half bad idea. I just figured it would be easier as the connections are the same. The W700 display connector is not swappable with the T500 or T61 connector by a long shot so past they keyboard both land you at square one. That's correct, I tried and it didn't work. However, the W700's displa...
