Re: SL500 Quad Core Support

No, it doesn't support any quadcore, the best you can get is a T9900 Socket 478

Re: Quad core t500 + identifying radeon graphics

I'm not aware of any BIOS mods that allow quadcores on T/W500. All the quadcore T/W500 projects I've seen use Coreboot to add support for quadcores. Theoretically the Radeon VGA BIOS could be extracted from the factory BIOS and added as a option ROM in Coreboot. I spent a significant amount of time...

Re: T14s preproduction bug

If you’re going to use Linux you can disable it totally and use a USB mouse or a PS/2(from docking) touchpad easily.

I have no idea on Windows, maybe Device manager, registry or something will help.

Re: T530 blob free wifi recommendations

Try all of the mentioned in h-node.org on eBay, prefer USB ones because they are easily replaceable and will not brick your BIOS( Lenovo BIOS has a Whitelist of WiFi PCI cards and none of them are Free, if you use one not in the list, your laptop will not boot) I recommend ALFA AR9271 because isn’t ...

Re: X200 display drop-in replacement

There aren’t drop in replacements on IPS for X200(or any **00 series) but there are LED ones like 42T0709(from LG) I know some guy who sell it in $87, I’ll ask him for resolution and shipping, it seems to be brand new(in Lenovo box and all that)

Try this: https://www.intel.la/content/www/xl/es/ ... orage.html

TL;DR: clean it, clean the ports, try format it and update your BIOS and firmware.

Re: ThinkPad 380XD help.

You can replace Mn-Hd batteries with Li-ion but not mix them(ie Ultrabay and main one), although if controller is inside the laptop and not in the battery itself(I din’ know this is your case), laptop may report weird things(like battery at 153%). You can’t replace your 56K model with WiFi because i...

Re: Choosing CPU Quad Core Mod or SSD for T500

Best bang for the buck in terms of things you'll notice, IMHO, is an SSD. The CPU will help with response times when browsing the web/loading graphics and video, but the SSD will help with program load times and cache performance when there are many tabs open in your browser. If the system booted t...

I don’t want to be that guy going to the facts... but still I will: 1. Bill Gates is linked with the vaccine, easy as that, funds WHO and Oxford Laboratories. 2. Bill Gates is *not* linked to microchips in vaccines, but he want to reduce the population, and openly finance reduction of black populati...
