R52 (1859-4AU) System board replacement

What is the right system board for my ThinkPad R52 (1859-4AU)?

I know that if the system board’s video resolution does not match the LCD it will not work. The Lenovo site does not have my 4AU suffix listed, only shows it has 1400 x 1050 resolution.

Welcome to the forum!

Whether you believe it or not, any R52 board will drive your LCD with no issues.

Any board specified under # 18 here, excluding R51e planars, will work just fine:

Two caveats:

a) Don't get a board with an IEEE 1394 port since your frame doesn't have that opening

b) If you get a board with ATi graphics you'll need a different fan.

Hope this helps.



In daily use: R60F, R500F, T61, T410

Collecting dust: T60

Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,

Non-ThinkPads: Panasonic CF-31 & CF-52, HP 8760W
