T61 System Board

2018-09-11, 5:47 AM

Hoping "Tuus" or someone with access to information can help here.  Have a 7659-AV2, where I cannot find the "AV2" model in the ThinkPad Hardware Maintenance Manual.  Believe I neede a new system board, and from what I can tell, it may be either 41W1487 or 42W7866,  If it helps, the s/n is L3-7528.  Tried draining static power, removed battery, etc. etc.  Checked voltage and resistance on battery and power supply with multi-meter... all passed.   When plugged in, get the plug LED, but not the battery LED.  After pressing power button, both caps lock LED and num lock LED come on simultaneously, then the drive in use LED comes on, then all LED's go out.  I have tested the HDD in a T60, and it passes the test, and even boots in the T60, different architecture, I know.  Trying to determine if I can get a reliable board if that is indeed the case, the price of the board, and if I want to deal with it.  Anyone with knowledge, please respond.  Thanks a bunch.

I'd be glad to help you get a new motherboard, in fact I believe there is a new NOS board available for your model but I'd have to double-check for availability to be certain. I will see what I can find out and respond to your private message.

Sounds good, but please pardon my ignorance, what is a new NOS board?

NOS = new old stock. These motherboards have not been manufactured for many years so there are only three options, a used motherboard, a refurbished or remanufactured motherboard, or the best option being an NOS motherboard.
