SOLVED: Problem adding fingerprint reader to T60


As reported earlier, I attempted to install a fingerprint reader to my old friend T60 by replacing the palm rest. There was a problem for my OS and BIOS to detect the newly added fingerprint reader module.

After a week of discussion on the lenovo forum, I finally took my notebook back to the shop where I bought the palm rest from for inspection tonight. Unfortunately, I arrived a bit late and the opening hours was passed. I was disappointing until an really helpful and nice guy helped me in troubleshooting. At last, we discovered that one of the cable was wrongly attached. The lovely fingerprint options appeared in BIOS right after fixing the cable.

Hurray! Thanks so much, Mr. helpful guy! If you need some assistances on hardware problem, or if you are finding some cheap hardware components, or even if you have some old computer for trading in, you may reach him at a tiny shop called megabyte, 2/F, New Capital Computer Plaza, Shamshuipo, Hong Kong.

Some problems with my T60...


Recently encounter some problems with my T60 hardware.

1) I replace the original palm rest with another one with a fingerprint reader, but it doesn't work:

2) I upgraded to BIOS version 2.25 and then the USB keyboard is no longer working...

Wish they can be fixed soon...
