well, it happened. Sombody dropped a glass of wine on my T60, and it is dead. No power, no LED, no nothing.
I can handle some work by myself and in fact enjoy it, so I downloaded a manual and pick it apart, mainly to know which mobo model was in the thing, and if i can find one on e-bay.
Well, my mobo was of the 42T0116 variety, and there are plenty on e-bay. (E-Bay listing)
My question is:
apart from this number [42T0116], should I know anything else to avoir compatibility problem? I'm seeing different TYPES listed (1953-CT0, 1953DAU and others)...
I guess the LCD screen dimensions is important (14 inches here)... or not?
Thks for your help...

Welcome to the forum!
What's the 7-character model number of your T60?

I'm interested in the 7-character model number located on the bottom of the machine, the very same sticker that holds the serial number (don't post that) and production date...
On a T60, it should look like 2007-abg, 1952-cde, 8741-fgh - obviously different combinations but just to give you an idea of what you're looking for.

Take a look here, under # 19:
Every board listed will work, but ones with "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950" are a direct replacement.

Yes, it will work.
Not all the FRU numbers are listed in the HMM. This holds true for most models, and quite a few parts - including motherboards - that get added or improved during the model's life cycle.
