CCFL to LED conversion in R40?

#1 Post by ibrazhko » Fri Jun 26, 2020 2:18 am

I have a 14.1 R40 which I've basically maxed out (Pentium M 1.7, 2GBs of RAM, 120GB SSD via mSATA-to-PATA converter, Windows 7), but the display is really dim. Can I convert the CCFL backlight to LED? I have not found any kits specifically for R40, perhaps I can use a kit from e.g. 14.1 T40?

The one for T40 will work.
Actually the one for much more popular T43 will work as well.
Too many thinkpads not enough time!
(stable under reduction)
