I have a thinkpad iseries 1171 and would like to know if XP will run on it. Also, is there a way to send Vista data so an XP can read it. This is on another machine, a T60. Thank you, Doug

Hey Dish... I'm answering your question from a ThinkPad i1300 model 1171-4mu running XP Home. It runs quite nicely if you prepare your machine beforehand.

You'll need more than the 10 gig hard drive which comes on the machine. I upgraded to a 40 gig model I found on eBay. Also, be sure your RAM is maxed out at 192 meg.

I'm not sure what you mean about sending Vista data. If you mean files.... a USB flash memory stick work fine.

IBM ThinkPad iSeries 1400 LCD not functioning


I am afraid you are correct, your laptop screen is not usable and unless you’re a trained professional I do not recommend trying to repair the monitor itself. In fact, to do so would be rather dangerous to your own well being, but you do not have to throw your ThinkPad away. You could continue to use it with the external monitor or you could send it into Dell and pay them for a replacement. Look around though, there are probably other people who could provide this service for less, beause large corporations usually charge you more than necessary.

Need OS for Thinkpad iseries laptop


welcome to fixya

to be honest you can not make a OS disk you will have to ask around and see if anyone you know has a windows 2000 disk and try to install theres in your laptop or go to a store and buy a OS it is not cheap to buy so i would suggest to see if anyone you know has a windows 2000 or any windows disk for you to install it

and if you go somewhere and have them do it wil cost you a few bucks

hope this helps you out
