Ideapad 530s – Bios update question

For the new bios update for ideapad 530s, one of the changes is: 

“Modify gpu target temperature to 63c on balance mode”


Could someone please tell me what this means? Is the gpu not going to be able to exceed 63c? I don’t want to reduce functionality of the notebook.

ThinkPad P52 storage kit



I recently purchased a Thinkpad P52 in the UK and am in the process of moving all my data over from an old macbook pro.  I have a 2tb HDD in the MAC Book pro that I would like to move to the new Thinkpad however I need the barcket and cable so I can install the hard drive.  How can I get this kit I see there is a kit for the P50 and P71 but I don’t see one for the P52.  Is it the same kit for the thinkpad P52?

Upgrade Thinkpad 13 screen to multitouch

I have a Thinkpad 13 G2 Model 20J1-CT01WW with a non-touch lcd screen. I want to replace it with a multi touch screen (FRU#01AV664).


Would this work? Do I need to buy something else?



New Wireless Card for W520

Hey all,


Been doing some research, and it looks like my W520 doesn’t have a Bluetooth-compatible wireless card. I tried enabling it in BIOS, FN+F5 shows no bluetooth; eventually I tried to install bluetooth drivers, but they won’t install because, after all that, my N6205 wireless card just doesn’t support bluetooth.

So, I’m resigned to replaing my wireless card, but I can’t seem to find good info on what part to buy.  I saw Atheros AR9380/AR5BXB112 suggested in an older thread, but the only ones I can find are for Apple.


Any recommendations? I want something that works well and gives me good speeds and Bluetooth audio quality, but rather not break the bank.


Also if anyone knows of a good bang-for-buck graphics card for the W520, I’d be much obliged.

Laptop turns on but display is awfully dim

I’m able to see the display, but barely… Its so dark o can’t even see the cursor or see where I have to type my password…. Ive tried messing with the brightness and f9 key but none of them work. Pls help I got homework on the that pc. ;(
