Hi gab09,

 

As I understand that you have query regarding Motherboard compatibility for your ThinkPad T530.

> 04W6680 should work fine with your system because normally we see the compatibilty with Machine Type.

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Thank you for your support.

 

I tried this motherboard (04W6680) however I was not able to make it work.
My laptop does not seem to recognize the peripherals since it mentions an error concerning some things concerning the media (I do not have time to read the error that the system shows me the choice of: how to start the system).

When I try a default or other mode, the system tries to start. I see the windows logo (windows 7) and it restarts.

When I booted for the first time my hard drive was formatted by the system.

I handed over my old motherboard (the touch pad connector is broken, by my fault). My laptop works fine, and with a mouse now.

So I wondered if the 04W6680 is compatible? (Unless it's faulty ...?) You tell me it's compatible.

I do not have a cd of windows 7 because it is already preinstalled in my disk. But I had a back up on an SD card.

 

So I do not know how to make it work.

 

(Unless I buy another motherboard 04Y2022?)

 

Thank you for your help
