Re: Wifi AX on T430?

WLAN cards do not work in a WWAN slot. And the bluetooth part works off USB, which may have a (non-working) trace in the WWAN port. You'll have to move it into the WLAN slot, otherwise absolutely no-go. That would explain a lot. As for the part when you mention M.2 - it's the "adapter" I was writin...

Wifi AX on T430?

Hi guys, I've modded my T430 pretty heavily and I've been using AC7260 for a while now. I'm topping around 280Mbps on my current card but I'd sure like to see some higher numbers. I wondered if there's a possibility to install AX200NGW card. Not directly of course, but with an adapter. So I've bough...

It seems there are now also kits for wqhd by the same seller, see this and this. Has anyone tried these?
Oh darn, if I had 200$ lying around, I'd definitely give it a go.

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

Does anyone know if I could get my hands on that cable that goes from the PCB to LCD which could make putting the PCB under the keyboard possible? According to e-qstore, that cable is not compatible with the older kits where the PCB was placed behind the LCD. Dang, and I thought it would be possibl...

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

I have never seen it flicker at all, so no. It's good to know that it can be achieved, but I wonder why so many of us fail to get that holy grail and have some kind of issues. EDIT: I've recently had to replace my motherboard. It's basically 1:1 with the old one (both have flashed modded BIOS v2.78...

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

I don't think my battery has ever been completely flat. As stated above, it's in almost constant usage every single day. The lowest it ever gets is ~40% on the train to work. There were maybe only 1 or 2 occasions where it was left unplugged by accident and died, but I didn't notice any flickering ...

Yes. I made an in-depth post about it here. https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=127358 Kit from e-qstore (I believe the original poster) with behind the display mounting, FHD B140HAN01.2, 3840QM, 16GB ram at 1866, discrete GPU, standard 90 watt adapter. Absolutely no flickering issues....

Re: t430 / t430 hinges from China

Bought 3 sets (2nd & 3rd recently) and, unfortunately, it's a lottery. All were marked as "new" I'd say that only the first set looked like it was new, 2nd and 3rd are a bit modified. I can provide pictures if you'd like. One set worked fine for about a year, right one become a bit loose (juddery, b...

T430 keyboard backlight issue

So I had functioning backlight for about 5 years. I unscrewed keyboard, cleaned it with a cloth and brush, put it back in and the backlight is barely working. Level 1 gives an amount of light that's unnoticeable even when it's pitch black, level 2 doesn't change anything, intensity stays the same. I...

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

(...) funnily enough a very similar type of mod chip is used for the "s" models, yet none of them flicker (at least until now :wink:) I do know about that but since "s" is (should be) just an revamped version of any ThinkPad, is that really so difficult to compare the motherboards and maybe come up...

Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

Hi guys, I'll throw in my 2 cents, as I have recently bought an AHVA-type panel along with the converter kit. It will flicker when the battery is charged. From my experience the amount of RAM or anything else doesn't matter (as to why would different CPU cause flicker... I really wonder) I've made a...
