Lenovo laptop and Kingston SSD

by on Jan.26, 2011, under Computing

I came by a Kingston SSD the other day. Installed in a Lenovo T61 with Lucid Lynx. Performance is great!

Strange thing, however,  is the SSD would not respond to a warm-restart and the T61 would report a HDD error during POST; cold starts were fine. After some messing around trying to figure out a solution, I changed the SATA setting from AHCI to Compatibility mode. Things started working fine from there onwards although I’m not pleased since its a workaround.

Thinkpad T42 Atmel TPM driver

by on Dec.08, 2010, under Computing

I was building MadHatter’s T42 with WinXP SP3 the other day. All the drivers installed easily from Lenovo’s support site (always felt it was comprehensive) except for the device  ACPI\ATM1100\4&61F3B4B&0.

This turned out to be the Atmel Trusted Platform Module device for which the driver can be downloaded at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58054.html
