Hey Bill,
Thanks for the quick response . Yes i already checked that. RJ45/usb board is mentioned , but there were no specifications of that.
This switch is on part # 00HN984 (RJ45/usb board) .
Similar switch is there on my X280 also , but it has 'DIP' written on it.

itseems it is a tamper switch . Got a reply in reddit.

"Afaik, it is just a tamper switch. It monitors if you have removed the lid or not. It is only functional if you enabled "Bottom cover tamper protection" in bios. No need to worry about it."
