X131e help

Realblackstuff I understand if you have to shut this thread down. My situation: I purchased a for parts Lenovo x131e on eBay with the hopes of refurbishing it and using it as a personal laptop. It did not have ram, a hard drive, the bottom cover, the battery, or the charger, but the screen appear to...

N23 Yoga

I hope I'm in the right place. I'm looking at purchasing a Lenovo Chromebook n23 yoga. These have a 4 or 8GB Ram module cast into the motherboard so it's not upgradable but there is a long SSD slot built-in on most of these. My question is does anybody know what the biggest SSD you can possibly put ...

Re: B50-45

Thanks for the update. I have 2x8 16GB ddr3l PC3 12800 Mushkin essentials. I tried today one stick at a time in each slot to no avail. Both sticks work fine at full 16gb in my X230t but it isn't compatible with my B50-45 for whatever reason

Re: B50-45

Okay so I picked up the laptop today and I tried swapping over the 16 gigs ram that I had in my x230t and it threw it into a bootloop. I've tried resetting the CMOS and it's not working.

Controller support

So my x230t has a USB 3 and a USB 2, but when I plug in my Logitech f310 controller neither one of them read that it is an optical device. I have downloaded Logitech Controller driver program and that has not helped. Any suggestions?

Just get a VESA compatible MiniITX case and be done with this. There is no point in modding an M72 when a much easier solution exists. Also look into MicroITX and NanoITX boards. What are you trying to do that requires a custom board? The current case that is in I think is a vesa. It's an eMachine ...

X230t best OS

I have been running my X230t with Windows 10 and I am honestly not impressed. I have much more experience with Windows 7 (I have a COA for it) but I'm worried about loss of touchscreen functionality.

Honest opinions from x230t owners only please, Is it better with 7 or 10?

Honestly eBay is going to be your best option. The x230 series is a really good laptop with a lot of expansion capability. I picked up my i7 x230t and the guy thought that it only had 4 gigs of RAM. When I opened it up it would already have the 16 gig ram install, and it came with the non-touch scre...
