X21 Recovery CDs, please?

Hi folks,

Would someone be able to burn me a copy of the Recovery CDs for the X21?
I will gladly pay for postage and CD-Rs.

Thanks!

I don't know whether or not you have a warranty on it. The newest ThinkPads come with a standard 1 year warranty, so unless you have some sort of extension on it I would say that you have to buy a new keyboard.

Sounds like your mouse keys are gone. If this is indeed the case you will need a new keyboard (the mouse keys are attached to it). Double check me, but from the Lenovo website the Part Number for a Danish keyboard for an X31 is 08K5082.

Since you have replaced the inverter, it is possible that the backlight bulb on your LCD is no longer functioning. I have never tried replacing it myself, but from what I hear the part is cheap and the operation is not for novices.

Did you verify the CD with the installer to make sure there were no defects in the software?

I also have an X21 and I was able to dual boot Edgy and XP just fine - even ACPI seems to finally work.

ACPI on X21

Hi everyone,

Has anyone had any luck trying to get ACPI to work on a ThinkPad X21? I have Kubuntu 6.06 LTS on mine, and the thing just won't go to sleep, and I don't like using APM as a solution.

Thanks!
Chris

ThinkPad X21 Disks

Hi all,

Does anyone know where I could find the set of disks that originally came with the ThinkPad X21? I couldn't find it at Lenovo's site, and I figured that if anyone would know, a user here might!

Thanks,
Chris

Does anyone know if the X31 mahcines used fluorescent bulbs in the LCDs? If so, it is possible that replacing this bulb could restore the factory brightness to your screen (This was possible on Apple PowerBook G3s, I'm hoping the same idea applies here.)

You could try adjusting the display brightness in the BIOS:
F1(to enter BIOS)->Config->Display->LCD Dark Brightness->Set to Disabled (can also adjust the Brightness to High)

This will keep the same brightness setting when using the battery or the AC adapter.

WTB: Cable for IBM External CD-ROM Drive

The FRU Part Number for the cable is 00N8245.

IBM wants $58.50, and others want even more.

Does anyone have one lying around that they want to get rid of for less money? Thanks

Any thoughts where? I have tried searching eBay but I can't seem to find anything, and the merchants I have checked online want around $80.
By the way, thanks for the input, everyone.

It's a black external device. I'll read off what it says on the back:

IBM USB Portable CD-ROM Drive
Part Number: 00N8239
FRU Number: 00N8244

Is it possible to order the cable for this drive directly from IBM? Thanks.

Need cable for IBM USB External CD-ROM drive

Hi folks,

There is a port on the CD-ROM drive with which I am not familiar. Does anyone know where I can find a cable that will allow me to connect this device to the USB port on my ThinkPad X21? Thanks.

Boot X21 from PC Card?

Hi folks, This is my first post, so please allow me to introduce myself. I own close to a dozen Macs (most about 7-10 years old) but when I gave my iBook to my sister (a G4, oh how I miss it!) I decided to look for something ultra-portable. IBM had such an excellent reputation that I decided to get ...
