Lenovo Thinkpad x240 system board replacement

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 Smiley Happy 

lookign forward to hear from you!

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.

Could you please explain a bit more what do you mean "affect by activation"?

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad x240 system board replacement

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.
