Re: T43p stopped booting, help?

2008-12-03, 14:33 PM

I thought I'd post a follow up...


After my last post and my last dealings with Lenovo I was so crest-fallen that I gave up on the laptop and threw it in the corner. I had all but given up on it and was planning to part it and my T40 out. I never could quite bring myself to start doing that though as even thinking about the laptop got me half depressed, half pissed off.


A week or so ago I came across a guy on Craigslist here in Toronto offering to buuy or sell Thinkpad parts, particularly T4* series parts. He didn't have a system board specifically for the T43p, but he had a compatible R-series system board. For $150, I took a chance and, touch wood, it's working fine!


If anyone in the GTA are looking for parts, drop me a line at digital.mermaid@gmail.com and I'll pass along the contact info for the guy who helped me out.
