R51e model number on budy (1834) not equal with model number in bios (2378)

2009-10-17, 19:01 PM

Hi everybody! Maybe somebody can explain me...

Thanks in advance!


I have R51E (as I see on it body). On it body is number 1834, but this number not equal with model number in bios. Number in bios is - 2378 DHU - this number from T41.Any Lenovo service program detects notebook as a T41 (Bios utility, lenovo system box and other). But in real this is R50E - dimensions, ports, specification, components - all from R50E ...

How this can happen? This is serios problem or not? Is it possible to correct this situation?

Welcome to the forum!

Chances are that the original board was replaced with one from a T41. Not really a big deal, use it and enjoy...
