Long story short: I bought a t420 on eBay that arrived smashed and cracked. I took a partial refund on it thinking I could buy parts to fix it myself. The parts machine I bought on eBay also arrived smashed and cracked and was unusable. The current state of the t420 is:
- Needs an LCD panel (1600x900)
- Palmrest cracked, but acceptable
- LCD back cover cracked and needs replacement
- Magnesium chassis cracked
Specifically, I want to take the motherboard, processor, and NVidia graphics from the t420 and drop it into the t410 chassis, and use the t410 lcd panel. I would be connecting a t410 lcd panel, webcam, keyboard, touchpad, and fingerprint sensor to a t420 motherboard.
Does anyone know if this is possible before I trouble myself with taking it all apart and trying?
Or...does anyone have a t420 1600x900 panel they aren't using?
