S230U (Twist) - hard drive cover/door

Not sure to which of these forums this thread belongs, but the only mentions I found of the Twist on here fall under this forum or the X series forum, so here goes nothing... I just recently reset my beloved Thinkpad Twist... seriously, LOVE the thing... but I've got a problem. I had to go away for ...

I've also had a devil of a time getting the mouse to work again. I've seated & re-seated the connection several times. Any suggestions are most welcome.

OK, so I fixed the powering up problem... turns out reseating the battery connector fixed that problem. BUT...

ThinkPad Twist s230u Power Issue

I think this is the right subforum based on other posts, but mods please move if I am wrong. Have a ThinkPad Twist s230u that I am more or less in love with. Last night I fired it up, it was loading a little more slowly than normal, and then, all of a sudden, and without warning, it just shut down, ...

T23 driver help at initial Windows 2000 installation

So, my Thinkpad T20 died (or at least its hard drive did) and rather than tinker with it I bought a used T23 off of ebay. When I installed Windows 2000, however, it did not recognize the ethernet port in the back of the computer. I tried going to Lenovo's web site and making a CD of every driver lab...

Yes, and yes. Those part numbers (MT16LSDF3264...) highlighted in blue appear to be the correct part numbers for low density PC100 or PC133 modules. Two of those will work in a T20. Upon receipt, run them in your laptop to a memory diagnostic program such as memtest86+ . This way you can be sure th...

I guess the simplest way to ask this is this:

Would the RAM for sale here on ebay work with a T20 (the seller claims it will, but I just want to double check with people who really know these things). And if I buy 2, that would get me up to 512 MB of RAM?[/url]

Your T20 can accept two 256MB "low density" modules, so yes, that would "rule" :) ! You can get to 256MB by dumping both sticks and putting in one 256MB module. That would be the best thing to do if you can't afford the upgrade to 512MB at this time. "Low density" 256MB modules are identified by co...

Expanding the RAM on a T20

So, I'm no technical whiz, and I have a question about expanding the RAM of my T20. Currently, it has 128MB of RAM - it appears to have one stick comprised of four 16MB chips and another that is one long 64MB chip. This T20 has a 700MHz processor. I think I can expand it up to 256MB, but my question...

560X Failure to Load Operating System

Hello All --- My girlfriend picked up an old IBM 560X Thinkpad a few months ago, and we were able to successfully install Windows 98 on it. This afternoon, after (eep!) leaving the thing on the entire night before, she went to start the machine again and the Windows start up forced it into a ScanDis...

Hey all,

I looked through some old threads on this site and solved my own problem. Turns out that the PCM/CIA Ethernet card was interfering with the boot somehow in some way. From now on I guess I'll search first, post second!

I thought about my problem some more, and played with the laptop a little, and discovered that even after it is turned on, pressing the "caps lock" and "num lock" keys does not result in either the caps lock or num lock indicator light coming on. I figure this means the computer is failing to boot a...
