Re: ThinkPad 365XD Stock System Image?

Welp anyways, I know I'm talking to myself here but I wanted to follow up on this in case someone reads it down the road. I was able to get a stock system image sorted out bit by bit.

I installed the PCMCIA Card Director ThinkPad tool but when I open it it says some file is missing and I think that's cuz I don't have the driver installed. When I go into device manager it shows the PCMCIA slots as being disabled and in some 32-bit compat...

755CD Giving Me a Headache :-/

I picked up a 755CD a few weeks ago, catch was it was broken. The speaker light was flashing which is a very common symptom from what I've read so I got a new motherboard on eBay, installed that and it worked... For 24 hours. At the 24-hour mark I noticed my screen start to flicker. It seemed to fli...

Re: The official 755 Upgrade and general information Topic

I acquired a ThinkPad 755CD from someone this week. He told me it was broken and described the symptoms but it was cheap enough I decided to take the chance. The issue is that nothing shows up on the screen, not even BIOS. When i power it on, I can hear the HDD spin up, the HDD spindle operate for j...
