Re: What's a good temperature range for T61P?

when looking at your location I'd not expect 32C ambient. It's 27C right now. And the room itself has a very poor ventilation. Clean up the heatsink, apply new, good thermal grease and it should be way better. I'll try, but I've changed the thermal paste just a few months ago. If not, invest ~$10 i...

Re: What's a good temperature range for T61P?

I have 50-60C when idle and about 90C when gaming. Is it bad? The CPU is T7500.

T6x and T4x keys compatibility

Hello. I wonder if I T4x keys (not the entire keyboard unit, just keys) would fit in a T6x keyboard? I've seen some photos of T43 and now I want those gray functional keys on my T61. I need to know whether it is possible or not.

Could it be that the Siberian cold temperatures have anything to do with it?
Nah. It's not always winter in Siberia, you know. Today was about +20 degrees Celsuis in my city.

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

I have found another problem today. This one appears to be a major one. When I set the laptop into standby, it seems to work - the Crescent LED gets on, and laptop succesfully goes out of standby, when I press the power button. But something wrong happens when I put it into a bag and move somewhere:...

You can only perform the test: sfc /verifyonly But there isn't such an option: SFC [/SCANNOW] [/SCANONCE] [/SCANBOOT] [/REVERT] [/PURGECACHE] [/CACHESIZE=x] /SCANNOW Scans all protected system files immediately. /SCANONCE Scans all protected system files once at the next boot. /SCANBOOT Scans all p...

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

You get a few BSoDs, then there are problems with the hardware. But I hadn't gotten any BSODs recently. And BSOD is not necessarily hardware problems - more likely it's a faulty driver. At the command prompt, type: sfc /scannow I have some files modified, and I don't want to bother restoring them l...

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

left fan is good, right fan will destroy an nVidia motherboard. Already replaced it. use a good quality thermal paste or it will fail. How to find out if it's good quality or not? The label says "TITAN Nano Grease", is it good enough? That board has the older generation of gpu chip and likely has m...

Most likely problems with the hard drive.
Rather unexpected conclusion. The S.M.A.R.T. of the hard drive is perfect anyway, and I have already tried to reinstall PCMCIA tuner drivers.

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

One more thing: my PCMCIA TV/FM tuner stopped working. It is visible to the OS and has its LED on, but I cannot hear neither music, nor statics.

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

Why 307.83? I have already installed 340.43 found on my other computer. You have 340.43 installed on another XP x64 computer? If that is the case, then I believe the driver that I suggested is not recommended. The reason why I chose 307.83 for the graphics chip, is because NVIDIA states in its offi...

Oof, I almost forgot about the bluetooth module. Have you tried running any distribution of Linux that supports bluetooth? I have heard of cases that relates to bluetooth being non-functional in Windows, but functional in Linux before.
I'll try.

Re: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M motherboard troubles

Did you use your Intel motherboard's heatsink for your NVIDIA motherboard? They seemed alike to me. Maybe I should try to replace it either. Which one of those is better: https://m-ch.ml/t/thumb/1524848969265s.jpg or may it be your battery? I don't think so. Everything were just fine unless I have ...
