Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

Better late than never. I started a new job at an animation studio and they let me borrow their i1 Display. I'll try to find time to do the other panels I have over the weekend. I found another one for the B133HAN04.6 (designated Dell F7VDJ, AUO462D) here It was created by NotebookCheck . It's 26 k...

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

Hi! I would really like to do this mod in a few days. My goal is to build a 13.3 inch X230 with the X220 keyboard. :D What's the last update? Do all the keys work? (Home/end/pgup/pgdown/insert etc)? And the caps-lock light? Thanks! So far I've made/sold one unit. I'm debating on whether or not it's...

Re: Sierra/High Sierra on the x220/x230 with nitrocaster's FHD Mod

Has anyone tried this on an X230 with the LVDS port disabled (patched BIOS)?

Re: X330 -Ask Me Anything

I've recently acquired a X330 from Jacky. I'm willing to answer any questions the community has about it. Images: https://imgur.com/a/KFNLo7V Specs: i5-3320M, 8GB RAM, 128GB Kingston A400, FHD 13" Samsung Display. Do you know which Samsung display it is? If you could get a model/panel number from J...

Re: X1 Carbon 3rd gen damaged screen.

For anyone interested (or anyone out there searching) I did successfully upgrade from the base fhd TN panel to a QHD panel, and i'm pretty happy with the results. It's a much better display than the default. I did have to replace the lcd cable with a 40 pin connector cable that I found on ebay for ...

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

I called CompuTrace in the middle of the night in the US. They had someone in China answer the phone, but they spoke English. If the day ever comes, just call them. It seems they're available 24 hours.

Re: Lenovo X230 Keyboard Light

If the light-symbol on the spacebar points towards you, you only have the ThinkLight. If it points towards the screen, you also have a backlit KB. Thank you for that information. The light symbol is pointing downwards. It is disappointing, because a keyboard that lights up is a basic feature. You w...

Re: Lenovo X230 Keyboard Light

Some models had a backlit keyboard (individual keys were lit) and the ThinkLight. Other units only had the ThinkLight, which is a light near the webcam that pointed down toward the keyboard.

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

I flashed my EC with the patches (including battery check removal), but my keyboard is acting as the EC hasn't been patched at all. Menu = PrtScr PgLeft = PgUp PgRight = PgDown PgUp = Delete PgDown = Insert Home = does nothing End = End Delete = Home Insert = does nothing Pause = does nothing ScrLk ...

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

Thy may have wanted to make sure the wi-fi connection was not dropped in the middle of the operation. Maybe there is a risk of bricking the machine if that should happen. I'll hook up an ethernet connection when I get home later tonight and see if those CompuTrace processes start to show up. I disa...

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

Welcome to the Forum. Good question. Next question... You'll need to ask the folks who have called Absolute, if they HAD to go online wired in order to deactivate their laptop. IMHO wired only doesn't make any sense, because not everybody HAS wired... Wifi will always work in any OS (assuming hard/...

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

It was a nice second call to Absolute support, the representative gave me a ticket number this time and sent an email with the following text: The agent has been removed from device XYZ, make sure that the device is connected to a wired network , must have Windows O.S. installed, perform some reboo...
