Re: T420s always underclocked

Running on a 65W adapter without a battery will also limit your cpu speed.

Re: T500 processor upgrading advice/questions

I'm using a P9600 in my T400. The fan is a little more active than it was on the p8600. The T9600 will run hotter and the fan will run more often.

Re: Will a P9600 fit my T400 6475-WL9?

Is the original P8400 soldered to the board? (I haven't looked).

Will a P9600 fit my T400 6475-WL9?

Will a P9600 work with my T400 6475-WL9?

Currently the machine has a P8400 which Intel says supports sockets "BGA479, PGA478". The P9600 supports only PGA478.

Re: thinkpad screen to Grub takes 90 seconds. How to fix it?

if you've got an i5, use a 64-bit desktop.
