Where to find FRU for motherboard on W520

#1 Post by Renz » Tue May 08, 2018 8:04 pm

If your sticker on the shell with S/N of machine is not there anymore and you need the FRU number to find a motherboard for your W520, no need to pull it all apart like I did. If you remove the small plastic plate at the back, in the centre, you will access the RAM slots. My FRU number was on the small sticker that is on the RAM slot. The information was confirmed by the official Lenovo tech support.


Code: Select all


Admin note:
The above ridiculously overblown Google picture link (shown here as Code) only shows the above No-Entry sign!
No idea about your Google picture-size, but it is probably way too big.
If you instead would store your pictures with e.g. Imgur, that link could look like:

Apart from that, please read the Forum Rules, especially Section 5: https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=14339

Apologies about the picture not showing.

But we do not wish to get involved with this.

This post is to help Thinkpad people to find parts, I have done this on my spare time to help the community as I had the information at reach, If you think the image can be put somewhere else in order to make the display to work, feel free to take some of your own time in order to modify this post according to this website's policies.

I'm sorry if I cannot help any further, hope you kindly understand.
