For cost of mailing - T61 Keyboard FRU 42T3209

Cleaning the closet and found this keyboard; has a yellow sticker "GOOD EXTRA T61 10-6-11." Chances are it is good, otherwise why did I keep it? I'll put it in a medium USPS Flat Rate box and mail it to any US ZIP Code for the cost of the box; otherwise to the recycle.

Re: Possible purchase in Ireland

You may be right, we're still trying to fix his exact location. We think his "flat" is on the north side of the river and west of Trinity. He's only been there a couple of weeks and his time has been taken with orientation; although he did go pub crawling with his "flatmates."

Possible purchase in Ireland

I have a grandson getting his PhD at Trinity in Dublin. He is devoted to Lenovo/IBM having received units from me while in the States. He is interested in a laptop, but shipping from USA is problematic [i.e. battery]. Is there anyone in Ireland or UK that might have a used X?? willing to sell? Grand...

Re: [Solved] X230 boots into W7, but cannot get into BIOS

I had a problem getting into BIOS because Windows was set to FAST boot. Solution for me: Close Windows while holding down the shift key so the next boot of Windows won't go FAST and leave time for F1 to open BIOS.

I've done that but can't get it to reverse - rejected by Windows. Is there something I'm supposed to do BEFORE trying to re-load the cloned image via USB?

Is Acronis or EaseUS Todo cloning different from Reflect? Using Macrium Reflect, I cloned the X1 M2 SSD to an external hard drive but that drive was not USB bootable because of a Windows limitation, according to Macrium [see the following]: "Important Windows cannot boot from a USB connected drive. ...

The X1 came per-loaded with Win7, but no disks. Is there an easy way to clone or image the SSD? I tried Macrium Reflect but tech support says Windows won't allow booting from USB. What other way is there to restore other than USB? I'm not interested in buying another unique M2 SSD for my generation ...

Free for the mailing cost - GPS handheld 7 inch

For many years I used a GPS receiver with my laptop [Microsoft Streets and Trips, DeLorme Street Atlas] but didn't want to try an expense Garmin or Magellan when those laptop programs became obsolete; not knowing if the fairly expensive single purpose units met my needs. So I bought the 7 inch XCODY...

Since I don't know about "cellular service," I guess that means I can remove the card without changing my life style of being cyber challenged.
Thanks to all from someone who remembers automobiles came from the factory without heaters or radios, and who's first car was a well used 1932 Chevrolet.

Maybe a dumb question, but I'm not super knowledgeable about these units.
I have a T440s with the internal slot filled with a WWAN card. If I want to install an internal M2 SSD what happens to my wifi capabilities by removing the WWAN card?
