Re: Which LCD screens can be substituted for a T61?

Last year I changed the lcd on my stock 14.1" T61 WXGA 1280x800 with this: LP141WP1(TL)(B8) Its probably not the best but it fits perfectly. Its a bit brighter than the old lcd which makes sense due to the age of the original ccfl. It can't compare to the new led lighted ones though. Slightly higher...

Re: Thinkpad T60 CPU Upgrade

I could never get the usb working via "eltorito" (Linux) Both of this worked for me but for a T61 and X61: - burn the image to a disk and then boot from it - create a dos boot usb disk with enough space to accommodate the new bios exe, boot form it and then run the exe when on the prompt. Good luck!

Re: Comparing T60 SSD to T61 Sata 2 SSD, not much improvement?

I know that some of those numbers look fine (like sequential read and write speeds), I am just surprised there there is such little improvement in random read/ write speeds between the two systems. And in one case the T61 is even slower. It just annoys me, as by every metric it is a better system, ...

Re: SSD questions

Honestly, given the T61's outdated SATA equipment and the advances in SSD technology over the last few years, even a cheapo SSD from a brand like Inland would probably still max out the speed the T61 can take from the drive. To me personally, the question is whether one is comfortable with relying ...

Update requested. Managed to unbrick it by letting it sit in a Closet for a Week or so with no CMOS. This was only realized AFTER I ordered a new Board. Now I have 2 Boards just sitting around, thanks to me somehow [censored] up the Screen, and I've largely given up. Time to order a busted T61 :D
