No luck john, we have a few broken HP's but not lenovos, Our IT guy says you have to get an exact match right down to the model number in order to swap them as there is so little tolerance and any difference in connectors will mean they won't fit.
I spotted these though, but again check your part numbers.... http://useditshop.com/ibm-42w7873-lenov ... 27833.htmlhttp://useditshop.com/ibm-42w7942-76737 ... 26434.html
our IT guy said expect to pay upto £135 for a second hand working motherboard. You might get luckier buying a whole one with a broken screen though
thanks a lot for looking.
There is some latitude when swapping Thinkpad motherboards but you do need to have a fairly good match.
Think I may have to retire the old T61 and get a new one...
