Re: WTB - TP760EL parts

I have a complete, functional 760EL that a co-worker gave me. Early next week I'm picking up a for-parts 760XD, which shares many of the parts and assemblies. Depending on condition I find, I'd be willing to send you as much of what's on your list as I don't need (much of it, I trust, except possib...

Re: Restoring a ThinkPad 365ed

Hi, Though I didn't replace a belt in an FDD I did repair a couple of audio tape decks in my life. If You have the loose belt - then it is feasible to measure it and find a replacement among audio deck/vcr belt kits You can buy on eBay. Check https://www.studiosoundelectronics.com/beltmeas.htm on ho...

Re: X60T - no audio device on Win7

Hi RealBlackStuff,

Thanks for the tip - I might take a look at X61t boards then. Not only 8 GB of RAM but also they do have 64 bit CPUs (mine has the L2400 1,66 GHz so I don't even get full 4 GB...).

Re: X60T - no audio device on Win7

The first thing I did was to install all of the drivers - including the one You mentioned. Didn't change anything. As for USB boot on Linux - I tried on two distros (Debian and Slackware) and both failed to detect the sound card. So - it's dead. Ah well - need to either find a motherboard or the sch...

X60T - no audio device on Win7

Hello, Some weeks ago I aquired an x60T which needed some attention. After swapping the plastics and buying a battery and an SSD I set up Windows 7 on it. However after the install and downloading all the drivers from the "Drivers" section of the forum I am unable to get the audio set up on it. The ...

Bump - I found an FDD cable for the 365XD so all I need now is the LCD cover for that laptop.

Re: 770E on-board RAM errors and removal question

Well - got my answer today - after removing the memory from the mainboard it boots, but the BIOS detects that the memory is not present and gives me a 225 error, refusing to load anything. I'll have to find replacement memory chips then.

Re: 770E on-board RAM errors and removal question

Thinkpad 770 does not have it's on-board ram soldered on to the the mainboard. It is socketed. You will have to remove the mainboard to get to it. See the hmm Sorry, but You are incorrect - some 770 and 770E mainboards have the RAM soldered directly to the mainboard as mentioned in the HMM for the ...

I have a 365 series floppy cable but not a floppy drive box to attach to it. Small item so shipping would not be prohibitive from the USA. PM me if interested.

770E on-board RAM errors and removal question

Hello, Today I obtained a thinkpad 770E that the seller stated was in "working condition". Well - it booted to WIN 95 it had on the HDD. I decided to do some upgrades (adding a 10 GB HDD and inserting 2 x 128 MB RAM) and install Win 2000 on it. After 10 unsuccessful attempts (the installer crashed r...

Re: Looking for a 600E Palmrest

600 or 600E palmrest could be completely cleaned off the rubber paint, and looks great this way; el-sahef tried it out and it's fantastic. Same for lid. Note that this works just for 600 and 600e, not for 600x (there was a different painting method for this), and requires lots of time and nerves. A...

WTB - various Thinkpad 600 and 365XD parts

Hello, I am trying to refurbish a couple of vintage ThinkPads, but sadly can't obtain the parts through the internet. Perhaps somebody does have one or more of the following parts in good condition and will be willing to sell them: 1) ThinkPad 600/600E Speaker and microphone flex cable, 2) 365X/XD 1...
