LF: W701/W701ds Schematic Or Information

#1 Post by TheForgottenKing » Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:23 am

I'm trying to figure out if the only difference between the W701 and the W701ds motherboards is if the W701ds has the second connector, and the W701 has the pins but nothing hooked up. If anyone has any schematics or information pertaining to this matter, please provide it. Thank you.

It seems so, but the W701's motherboard doesn't even have the pins for the 2nd connector.

Here, have a look at their motherboards: [W701] [W701ds]

For the W701's motherboard, you can tell that there are 2 solder pads that were meant for the 2nd connector, but it is not there (it is supposed to be at the right side of the DisplayPort). The W701ds' motherboard has a shiny yellow connector at the right side of the DisplayPort, which confirms that the only difference is a missing 2nd connector.

I do not have the schematics, unfortunately. You could try searching for 'Wistron NICO-3' though, since that is the W701(ds)'s true name.

Thank you for showing me all that.
