Re: x230 memory upgrade? 4GB to 16GB What to get?

Are there any rules that the two ram modules have to have the same capacity? My existing x230 has one 4 GB ram module installed. Can I add one 2GB module to the spare slot and make the laptop having total 6 GB ram? Thanks. Yes you can add that module, if it's a DDR3 SO-DIMM. X230 is pretty undemand...

Re: X230 not recognizing genuine "44" 4-Cell Battery

Frankly speaking I do have my good friend, whose family live in US and could possibly forward the parcel for me, but the seller stopped answering my messages, so I just gave up.
Yep, I did have similar situation like you a few times, on both eBay or polish Allegro. Not very pleasant though.

Re: X230 not recognizing genuine "44" 4-Cell Battery

dr_st : Any hint where to get one? I'm from Poland, so that should be best possible source of battery. Unfortunately, no; it was a private seller on eBay which happened to have one open-box, practically unused battery. I looked again a few days ago and couldn't find anything other than that Hong Ko...

Re: Lenovo's last classic Thinkpads tour: T410, X220, T430s *MANY PICTURES*

May I have a question in regards to your eSATA Express Card that can be seen on this picture:

Is it eSATAp (Power Over eSata) connector? Where can you get a card like that? It appears pretty handy to me, and I'd love to get one if possible.

No, I failed.

Re: X230 MC7710 drivers from Lenovo?

As you correctly point out, I have no GPS signal, due to the lack of a GPS antenna. Searching Google gave me very poor search results as the search terms are far too common to give a good result (I hope all SEO companies go to hell). From the correctness/idealist viewpoint, I want the same as you. ...

I'm considering upgrading my T430 to 4G with MC7710 too. I already have a WWAN modem, but it's a two-antennas 3G card Ericsson H5321, while the 4G Sierra MC7710 on the other hand requires 3 antennas.I'm worried about missing 3rd antenna, as I don't want to loose GPS functionality when connecting jus...

Thank you for answer. I heard about modding the EC, it's way easier then flashing custom BIOS, but I could not find any information where to get custom firmware or how to flash it besides git-hub project, based on Debian, which is a bit too complicated for me. I'm also wondering why the computer is ...

X230 not recognizing genuine "44" 4-Cell Battery

Hello everyone, just came across a hard nut to crack. I wanted to change my old worn-out 44+ 6-cell battery in X230 to a smaller, thinner 44 4-cell one, as I do enjoy flat bottom, with no protruding elements. I bought one from a local computer store, but it didn't work, so I changed it for another o...

Re: X230 MC7710 drivers from Lenovo?

Hi, while it is possible to find some cheaper T430 laptop without a WWAN kit, most of 30 series wasfortunately shipped "WWAN ready". I added 3G cards to a few T430/X230, and the WWAN antenna set was always already there. But only red & blue wires, no 3rd wire for 4G. I already have a WWAN modem in m...

Out of pure curiosity, since I bought my X61 I was wondering about a few spots on X61 lid. I was searching online for hours, but did not came to any conclusion. Maybe one of you already know the answer? 1) There are three spots covered with black stickers or plastic shims. One is for WWAN antenna (t...

This is awesome. Any idea where could I possibly order the 2nd fan for my X61s, as mine unfortunately came without the fan installed. Models without the 2nd fan do not have the fan header for it, so even if you buy the fan there's nowhere to plug it into. Yes, I've just noticed it today when disass...
