Re: T61 nVidia quadro 140M problem/fail

Quick Update:  Called Lenovo 3 more times and finally found someone who was better informed about this.  He had me check the BIOS, and it was showing lines on there, so he assigned me a case # and a box is on the way.  Shouldn't cost me anything, and it will supposedly be fixed with a board that has a better design...

Re: T61 nVidia quadro 140M problem/fail

Mattweisz,

 

Repairs should be made with the lattest boards we have available.   Glad you got through - sorry it was a hassle.

 

All,

 

I've combined a couple orphan threads on this subject - we have two larger discussions related to the two common symptoms - 1 long and 2 short beeps, and garbled video, even in BIOS.

 

Please join one of those discussions so we can provide updates and advice there.   Please also see the updates I made to the marked solutions today.

 

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
