X31 Power On Problem

I am having a problem powering on my X31. When I press the power button, the little lights come on and the hard drive spins, but it shuts off after about three seconds. If I press the power button again, nothing happens. I have to remove the battery, or unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery i...

AC Power Adapter - DC Plug Size?

I need to replace the DC plug on my AC adapter. Does anyone know what size it is? I couldn't find one that fit properly at Radio Shack. Thanks.

FS: X24 Parts and Accessories

The graphics chip on the motherboard of my X24 has developed the bad solder joints problem and cuts in and out, so I have decided to part out the rest of the laptop. I have a 30GB hard drive ($20), LCD panel and inverter ($25) keyboard in great shape ($15), one battery good for two hours ($10), one ...

Re: IBM Thinkpad X31 and X41 Tablet HDD Speed Tests(PIC Warning)

The 1.8" drives in the X40/X41 are 4200rpm which accounts for their slow performance.

Actually, it is the BIOS that will only recognize 2GB. Windows XP recognizes 3.24GB of the 4GB I have in my desktop computer.

Good choice. Glad it worked out for you. The X24 is a sweet machine that can be had for under $200. Unless you need USB 2.0, it's a real bargain.

I didn't mean to offend you. I thought I had changed enough of the wording around so it wasn't an exact cut and paste. In addition, I began the post with "I also have..." to indicate that mine was different than yours. Again, if you were offended, please accept my apologies.

The plastic film is square with a square hole cut out of the center so that 1) the bottom of the fan/heatsink and the top of the CPU make direct contact, but 2) the bottom of the fan/heatsink does not touch (short) the traces on the green substrate on which the CPU sits.

Thanks for the inspiration. I did mine (X24) and the temperature of the CPU dropped 10-12 degrees Celsius. One additional hint: you can gently peel back (but not off!) the cellophane covering the bottom of the fan. The thermal pad is a very thin piece of metal (but thicker than foil), which if stuck...

Forgive me if I missed it, but has anyone tried two 300x CF cards in a dual slot Addonics adapter in a RAID 0 configuration. If so, can you post benchmarks and a subjective evaluation of the speed. Thanks.
