FS: miscellaneous RAM

Just clearing out some things. I've had these for awhile and I have no need for them. Any interest from the forum? If there is enough interest I could see about taking them out to get tested before any transaction occurs. 2gb Corsair (VS2GSDS800D2) PC2-6400 (800mhz) $15 [/color] SOLD 2gb Samsung PC2...

LF: x220tablet 3-cell battery

Wondering if any forum members might have a 3-cell battery for an X220tablet they are not using? If so at what cost would you be willing to part with it?

Thanks!

Re: Annoying random beeping on a newly set up T60

I often hear a beeping type of sound when the optical drive is initiated. Just going to suggest long shots but have you left a disk in the optical drive? If not try removing the optical drive and see if that makes any difference.

Re: Buying and x220

Well it takes a little digging. Sometimes the sellers are just resellers who wouldn't know an IPS screen if it came up and bit them! Look at the picture that has the BIOS displayed. Write down the alphanumeric digits for 'Machine Type Model' and 'System Unit Serial Number.' You will enter these numb...

Re: Buying and x220

I would suggest getting her one that has the IPS panel option. The screen on the ebay link looks to be a TN panel which generally gets very limited viewing angles. Here is a video of the comparison of a TN vs an IPS panel in an X220. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8MO-XaCZ_8 The panel on the right...

Re: If you were allowed to collect just one Thinkpad, which

Wow people are picking classics! I have a fondness for the T500. The T500 I sold this past summer performed very well in many tasks I subjected it to. The keyboard was great. Maintenance was not too problematic (thanks to easy internal access). The 2503 Advanced Dock+video card pairing worked surpri...

Hi all. I have a few wifi cards that I am not using and am wondering if any members here could be in need of an Broadcom or Intel N-1000 card? Please note that most likely only the Intel N-1000 came from a Lenovo laptop as it is the only one that has an FRU number. The Broadcom should work with a Mi...

I recently did a reinstall for an X201T that I am selling and the latest Hotkeys program from Lenovo was not invoking the OSD. What helped me was this thread http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=115047

Re: X220 - keyboard does not fit well

I'm curious. If you have removed your keyboard once before could you do so again and note the FRU of the keyboard? In the past there were 3 different types of keyboards and with each there were reports of discernible (and often substantial) differences in typing experiences. For reference these are ...

Does the battery still lock in place? I owned an X61s for a short while and had a battery that was accompanied by a spacer. Perhaps you are missing the spacer?

Re: Upgrade Frankenpad to R52 motherboard?

The first thing that you need to check is whether your R50e has a docking station port opening on the bottom of the base. Docking station port is there. I'm pretty certain that the RAM limit on all of these machines - just like on R40 before them - is 2GB and not 1GB. Really??? I have a small box o...

Re: T61 Advanced Dock + Graphics card

I am almost certain that something like an HD 6450 might be good enough for your HTPC requirements. At the very least you should have an HDMI that passes along audio+video as the T61 only has VGA (so retro now lol jk :mrgreen: ). HDMI that can pass along audio/video is something that will streamline...

@Norway Pad. The 6570 will fit just fine in the PCI slot of the 2503. It does run a bit noisy so just warning you. Have you given any thought into a fanless graphics card since you will only be doing media vs gaming?
