This can be done, you'd need to modify the frame and leave out one screw mount, remove the dialup modem and you'd also need a T60 cpu, cpu support plate, pc card assembly.   Or if you have the whole T60 lower chassis you can install all your t61 parts on it. 

 

This applies only to the 14" standard screen models, there are no 14" widescreen T60 models and the 15.4" widescreen boards can also be fitted with similar modifications and the 15" standard screen board is identical to the 14" standard T60 board.

Re: Funny way I fixed my T61 triple beeper

Got the same situation last week. My T61 was running all fine for 6 years. It is very solid.

 

But it suddently cannot boot, and got one long and two short beeps. It has a discrete nvidia nvs 140m graphic card. Based on the long thread here. It seems there is some bug in embeding it to the motherboard.

 

So how to fix it? I wish there can be a long term solution.

 

Thank you all.

Sparkx, I have helped many members source motherboards that aren't effected with this nVidia bug and if you'd like my help you can send me a PM. I'm also sorry I haven't replied sooner  but I haven't been receiving notifications for replies to this thread and I'm not sure why because I'm suscribed to receive them. I'll need your model, serial and date code from the bottom lable but please don't post this info in the public forum, send it in a private message instead if you'd like my help.

Re: Funny way I fixed my T61 triple beeper

Are there any more good motherboards or T61's out there?

I just hit the 1 long 2 short beeps with my second T61. I have a good build I would like to keep running, but maybe it's time to throw away my docking station, extra batteries, and move on to another system.

 

I can give you the required information TuuS if you are still actively looking for new boards/pc's.

Thanks for your past help on this, your information was helpful. What a frustrating problem.

Re: Funny way I fixed my T61 triple beeper

Hi TuuS,

 

I have the same problem with my T61p (6459-CTO, CPU T9300) with Nvidia GPU. It's just died yesterday with 1 long beep and 2 short beeps, black screen. Can you help me to check a replacement board for my laptop with Intel GPU?

I have sent a PM to you regarding the serial.

 

Thanks,

TuuS

Re: Funny way I fixed my T61 triple beeper

I'm sorry to anyone I've not replied to. There have been some issues with getting notifications from replies to the topics, so If you'd like to alert me to your post you are welcome to send me a PM and I'd be glad to help anyone I can. 

 

At this stage the 08/08 boards are getting extremely rare, so I'd recommend Intel graphics which are by far the most reliable option. We've been sourcing them either from complete working laptops, or from some NOS lenovo or ibm boards we were fortunate to acquire. The only exception to this is the standard screen models which production stopped before August, so none got the new GPU, but we were fortunate to get the only remaining brand new NOS nVidia boards in new factory sealed IBM boxes. Since the T61 was the last full sized laptop to offer the standard 4:3 ratio screen, and the first to support 8gb ram, SATA2, and a long list of new features along with the classic thinkpad features we all love, and the fact that these boards can be retrofitted into a T60 which was the last to offer the standard screen IPS Flexview screens making it the most popular custom built thinkpad (Frankenpad) that tens of thousands of thinkpad fans build worldwide, making these boards an amazing find so we can now have reliable nVidia graphics on 4:3 standard screen laptops. If anyone is interested I can post more information on building these hybrids, or even those who prefer the smaller 14", you can get them with failed GPU chips pretty cheap and resurect them to be the awesome reliavle laptop they were originally designed to be.

Re: Funny way I fixed my T61 triple beeper

Hey, I tried to start up my old T61 (nvidia 140 version) again after a few years, unfortunately the same fate.

 

How do I go about making it work again?
