R51 and Intel 3945ABG?

2008-01-08, 16:34 PM
HI!
Does someone know if R51 is compatible with Intel's 3945 ABG mini-PCI card?
This one - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-62472&velxr-layout=printLenovo

I need an ABG card that supports LEAP, and it looks perfect for the job. But will it work with the machine....?

Kind regards
Jakob

Hi littlehelper76, welcome to the forum,
 
unfortunately it is not compatible with your R51, it is a mini-pci-express, the R51 has mini-pci.
have a look in the hardware maintainance manual to see which cards can be used in your R51. If you then type an FRU number into the search box, located at the top of the lenovo main website, you can hopefully find more details for the individual cards.

And here. The R51 has mini-pci, and the card shown through the OP's link is a mini-pci-express for X & T6*.
More examples of Lenovo's inaccurate descriptions :smileywink:
