That seller is likely selling a low-end A30 or A31 board.
lenovo "Super" T420 i7 2670qm WQHD 16GB
lenovo T500 P9700 Radeon 3650 WUXGA 8GB
lenovo T601F T7500 NVS 140m SXGA+ 8GB

Enable 2 finger scroll on any Synaptics touchpads with registry.

That is an A31 board, 32 MB not 64 found in A31p.

Real tested working A31p board is not an easy find.
