     2.remove the cover lid How?! The cover lid from my w520 is better than the cover lid of my w530 (the upper case)


      1.How can i magnify the image (like on w520 , fn+space) it is possible on w 530 ?!

      2.How can i go back on a web page ( like on w520 with  key near the arrow) on my w530 i have pgup and pgdn , is some settings or i must change the keyboard ?!

      3.right on my w530 i have cpu 3740qm if i buy a 3820qm is it fit? the actual fan is ok ?!

Re: couple of question about w520 and w530


1) If you're on Windows 7, open up Power Manager and go to the Global Power Settings tab. Uncheck everything in the Dynamic Brightness Control section.

2) Follow the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the W520 or W530:


1) There's no such hotkey for full screen magnifer on the W530, but you can use Win+Plus to trigger Windows' accessibility magnifier.

2) There are no more browser back/forward keys on the W530 keyboard. Check the hotkeys for the browser you're using to see if it has the appropriate shortcuts.

3) The 3820QM will work fine, but it will be exactly zero improvement over the 3740QM:

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U
