Difference between 42W3759 and 42W2452 ( 42W3653 )

2014-04-07, 16:31 PM

Hello all,

 

I have a IBM- lenovo T61, and one of my hinges is broken. The serial number from hinge is 42W3759. From where can I buy this hinge or which is the equivalent (is 42W2452 compatible ? ). I really need your support, my laptop is disassembled from 3 months.

T61-Elwood is suggesting an additional part possibility.

Maybe try the FRU P/N here: http://www-304.ibm.com/shop/americas/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/default/PromotionDisplay?promoName=parts_r&catalogId=-840&storeId=260785&langId=-1 and see what info you get.

 

Regards.

Again, there are quite a few possiblities.

 

T61 have two major Problems

 

1.GPU Failure in Nvidia Models ( Nvidia´s fault)

 

2.Display hinges that get loose

 

But because they are still thinkpads there is a FRU to fix it that. Some recommend the hinges I mentioned.

T61 was produced in three different sizes, and each of these utilise a different set of hinges.

 

What is the 7-character model number of that T61, located on the same sticker that holds the serial and the production date on the bottom of the laptop?

Cheers,

George

According to HMM, you need either 42W3653 or 42W3654.

 

Happy shopping.
