Re: T61 random shutdown and not booting

I grabbed another laptop from 08/06, would that work better for me or should I try and find a T61p?

Re: T61 random shutdown and not booting

08/09 so i know it's Intel 965 and I'm currently typing on it but only once has the shutdown been because of the GPU and it was for an outdated driver. So what should I do? I do have a large number of laptops if I need to swap out.

Re: T61 random shutdown and not booting

T61 6463-CTO, T8300 with Windows 7. I already tried different RAM and I'm going to try a different hard drive later, the only other modification I have done was add a fingerprint reader by swapping the front bottom panel.

Re: T60 & T61 wireless card not functioning

There is also a wifi-switch on the outside of the laptop, up front on the right. Plus there is Fn-F5 in Windows. Thanks for your help, unfortunately I think my wifi card is dead in both, I tried both of the things you told me and neither did anything. Although the switch was set to off, got my hope...

T60 & T61 wireless card not functioning

Both wireless cards are not working, tried the driver page and got nothing. Tried both Windows and Linux and I got nothing. On Ubuntu it says "Hardware Switch Disabled" but it is enabled in bios. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Restoration worth it? X41 Tablet

I have to use Windows for my school work. I put 2 gigs of ram in my X41 that worked and it works just fine, I was thinking of doing an upgrade to 7, possibly 8 if there is a way. I know 10 doesn't work but Linux is a no go and a Hackintosh if possible would work.

Restoration worth it? X41 Tablet

Recently I was given two X41 Tablets, one that worked and the other in a non working state. The one that works is in very rough condition and the one that's broken has minor scratches aside from a dent which caused the motherboard to fail. Is it worth restoring these computers? I really like the des...
