blue shade on a QXGA screen

hi, Yesterday did a successful flush of the rom on a QXGA screen for my t61 build. The screen is being detected and works normally except the fact that there is a blueish tint. the photos are below (big pics): https://photos.app.goo.gl/wWGKJ3NyizdWYsLN6 https://photos.app.goo.gl/abfVXe4uufeJNWvs7 ht...

Re: fan control for x62 on linux

did anyone managed to come up with a table that eliminates the noise at all?
I have tried different combinations but the noise does come back every time.

LF: DDR2 ram 2x4GB 667 or 800 MHZ

Hi,

need to buy 8gb ram for a t61 (2x4gb).
I see a lot of those for about $75 (with free shipping) on ebay.

So was wondering if someone could offer a better price (shipped to Switzerland).

800HMZ is prefered, but will consider also 667MHZ.

Just disassembled the lid to check It's definitely a fancyboost. Exactly as the one on your page. Oh dang, those are harder. You need a ~30V LED strip and I can't make those (well I can, but I have no PCBs to do so). Does it use LEDs that fire up or sideways? what do you think about these? https://...

When I put the machine under load the fan doesn't kick in when on battery, with power supply it starts at >65C and keeps the teperature on 85ish level. On battery the machine goes above 100C without any sign of fan working. Seems like a bios hardcoded issue, is there a bios version that has this pro...

I have an iccfl kit installed on an sxga+ couple of years ago. The brightness now is lower than on a non modified screen :(
Could you suggest a led strip that will work directly with the modified x61 board from iccfl.com ?
