Re: New system board options for w530

Thanks Richk - thanks for explaining the memory slots.  So far I'm still leaning towards replacing the system board.  Good to know they'll all fit.  Now that I understand the AMT, TPM & RAID acronyms I can safely ignore them as I don't need those features. 

 

I am curious about which boards have the k1000m or k2000m (not sure if the W530 had other video options) - this will have a significant effect on what the board is worth.  Is it the Q1 and Q3 codes that signify which video chip is used? 

 

Any idea what the W8-PRO and W8-STD codes mean for the different FRUs?  Obvious guess is it refers to the operating system but I'm not sure why the OS would be included in a decription for the system board.

 

Thanks for all the help so far.

Re: New system board options for w530

q1 =  k1000, q3 = k2000.  OEM win 8 licensing is done by storing the key in the bios.  The key stored on w530 can be pro, std or none.

Re: New system board options for w530

Hi Mavic,

This post is quite old but I just got the same issue as the one you described.

Did you end up replacing the board? I am about to send the computer to a service centre (out of warranty) and I want to understand if the issue is the board or something else.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
