T430 rises again

It drank some coffee and suffered a concussion before I got it.

New motherboard arrived today and a B140RW02 V.1 and HD+ cable are on order. The cable's coming from China so the laptop will be on TV duty until that arrives.

i5 2.6 Ghz and 4GB PC3 12800s presently installed and I'll move the Micron C300 128GB from my X60s to this.

The worst thing about the Precision keyboard is I can't slide my fingers across it like I can on a Classic.

The right half of the screen randomly started displaying again.

update:

The worst thing about the Chiclet keyboard is the layout. I have fixed this by remapping the keys in Windows using a convenient program called Sharpkeys to make the layout closer to the classic keyboard and replace functions of some personally unnecessary keys.

F11 -> Printscreen
F12 -> Delete
Home -> Home
End -> End
Insert -> Page Up
Delete -> Page Down
Printscreen -> Index key
Page Up -> Web back
Page Down -> Web forward

Switching from my classic Thinkpads to T430 is now not a problem. Now I just need some custom stickers.

It's a good layout fix, except for losing F11 and F12.

What you need is a T420/T520/X220/W520 classic keyboard and an EC-mod.

I remapped F10 to F11. Fn+F12 probably still works since Fn commands are controlled by Lenovo PM Driver, I won't use it tho since SSD.
