Adaptor

Hiyall, I have a Thinkpad T440p with Cinnamon 21.3 as Host (wireless) and Windows7 as Guest (supposedly via the VB's internal Bridged adapter) all interfacing with a Nokia FastMile 5G Gateway 5G-24W-A, Release 1.0.03. The Win7 works faultlessly with an ethernet cable plugged in but will not connect ...

Re: T440p

Do you mean an adapto with USB at one end and 'optical' at the other or am I looking at an actual device??

T440p

Hiyall,
Does the T440p have an 'optical out' port?

Re: Rodecaster Pro2 and Linux OS

thank you for making the reply a bit more expansive than 'no'.
These days I'm more likely to get something like a Lenovo M90 tiny. Still limited desktop real estate but packing a modern punch.

Rodecaster Pro2 and Linux OS

Hiyall,
I want to operate my Rodecaster audio device with Linux Mint rather than Windows or Apple. A different forum suggests that fitting a PCIE card will allow it to work.
Can a PCIE card be fitted to a Thinkpad T440p?

Unlock tool

Hiyall,
I have the opportunity to purchase several older Thinkpads at a very cheap price. Trouble is, they're all 'locked' by a government department and there is no chance of retrieving the passwords. I understand that there is a tool that will do the job.
Can I buy it or make it?

NVMe

Hiyall,
Bin a happy T440p camper for around 4 years.
March of time forces me to ask;
What is the oldest Thinkpad that will take an NVMe drive natively? (no attachments)

USB ports on T440p

Hiyall,
Am I imagining this problem?
I have a OS.iso file plugged into the left side USB port and it won't boot although all other file types work just fine. The very same USB.iso works most of the time on the right side USB port.

Re: External Backup HDD

ALL GOOD.
I retried the 3rd party dock plugged into the back of the Lenovo Ultradock and it worked. It took a long time to boot up but it got there in the end.
Can anyone venture an opinion on why it takes so long to boot. It's only Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.3 and Foxclone 50 on a 1Tb HDD.

Re: External Backup HDD

You're all getting it wrong. The Digitech dock has its own plug pack that is 12 volt @ 3 Amp. It is plugged into the Lenovo dock which has its own heavy duty power supply permanently attached to the mains.

External Backup HDD

Hiyall, I have a 'Digitech-SATA docking station' connected via USB to a Lenovo Ultradock containing my T440 laptop. I use Linux Mint 20 OS. When I want to use Timeshift or BackInTime it works without issue. I just installed another backup HDD to the external dock containing LM19+Foxclone. It would o...
