Motherboard diagnostic card & Thinkpad T60



I couldn't find any information regarding possibility of using diagnostic card with Thinkpad T60. Since it doesn't have LPT or such a port, is it possible to use it with

USB 2.0 To Parallel IEEE 1284 Centronic 25 Pin DB25 Printer cable adapter:

Re: Motherboard diagnostic card & Thinkpad T60

I don't know if it will work anyway, but it will be more likely if you use it with a T60 docking station.  The dock uses a port that is on the motherboard bus and uses the old legacy port addresses.  The USB ones use virtual ports.  I used one that connected to a USB port for power and also to the main battery terminals.  I think that one worked on T60 because the diagnostic info went out on the battery signaling terminals.  I probably have it is a drawer somewhere.  If you want a photo, send me a pm with your email address and I'll look for it.
