There are three different part numbers with the latest one coming with the good and bad gpu chips. The one with the good gpu chip can only be found in a laptop made in August 2008, so they are very rare and will likely cost more than the laptop is worth to many people, but for us T61 fans it would be worth it, however the most popular solution is a board with Intel graphics, as long as you don't run apps that require the nVidia chip, they are the way to go, they run cooler, longer battery run time, and I believe I know where I can get some rare brand new NOS boards, or genuine lenovo refurbished boards, or used boards. A minor fan modification, or fan replacement is required, but this is the best option for 99% of members. If you'd like my help you are welcome to send me a private message. I've also beenable to find the rare 08/08 nVidia board for many members here, but they keep getting more rare as time passes.
