Lenovo Thinkpad x240 system board replacement

2017-10-07, 16:51 PM

Hi guys,

 

I have got a system board damage, so I need to exchange it. I have never done it before, so I'm struggling with findings of correct part for exchanging to. As far as I understood FRU number of the system board is what I need. I have found one which says 04x5166 right next to the RAM slot. Is it the only reference I need to use to find a right part?

 

I have found a part on eBay, where in description it is written 04x5166 and three different numbers. You think this one should fit?

I would really like to try to repair my old friend first before going for an expensive new machine :) 

lookign forward to hear from you!

 

Anton

Thank you for your message! 

Doest it mean that I can select any systems board from a BOM list even with different processor and it will still fit?

If it has a different windows license, it may affect activation.

As this model comes with Windows 8.8.1 Pro/Standard, Windows 7 Pro and some without OS aswell and all Operating system has different licenses. If your system is having Windows 8.1 Pro license it will not work with Windows 8 Standard or vice-versa.
