Ok so i have this thinkpad T23 i bought and i've decided to turn into a slab, sort of like tablet but without tablet functionality. my design is to have it all screen except for the left side where i will have a left click and the thinkpad red mouse thing. In the process i accidentally wrecked the keyboard so i need to get a FRU 02K8668 so i can power it on. does anyone know if theres an alternative way to power the thinkpad on? Also, i need to move the red mouse thing the left, but it's connected by a ribbon cable. will it be REALLY hard to solder wires from the board to the ribbon cable? has anyone done something like this on here? this is how far i am:
Hi there, good luck with your mod. why dont you get rid of the ribbon cable altogether? just solder directly to the boards. it'll be hard but i guess it is doable. about ways to power up the thinkpad you might have better luck in a PC modding site.
