The aluminium covered speakers sound better and especially much louder than the plain black ones. I oiled the fan by removing the silver center sticker on its cast metal back and adding a drop of silicone oil to the bearing. Because the trimmer was too thick, I pinched out with a string cutter the center plastic rail under that slider and instead hotglued a flat plastic board a little lower to secure the trimmer against falling down and shorting the PCB underneath. I have a MDSP sound card. Thus I took everything apart again, measured the fan cables and tested the fan with a power supply, but everything seems to be perfectly intact.

In reality in most cases this is not necessary; it is sufficient only to remove the sheet metal cover to access the electronics, unless you want to reach the bottom of the main board or the CPU card. Is it easy to replace it with an ESS sound card?
I am not sure why my XD smells a little burnt and somehow sweaty. The NiMh-Cells you may replace yourself without any risk of explosion.
No sound on Thinkpad XD
Thus do not attempt to push 76xd the unscrewed keyboard PCB back into place while the keyboard lid is closed, because in closed position the keyboard switch slider is pushed in and cracks off the lever unless the lever is carefully pushed in manually. All fans deteriorate with age but you can lessen the effects with a normal cleaning from a compressed air duster or an air compressor be careful if using one. I downloaded a Thinkpad service manual, that lists which parts are interchangable among series models; the sound card unfortunately is claimed to be not interchangable.
I first tried to install that entire sound siund driver v2. Mon Nov 12, Thus I added a blob of heat conductive paste for better contact. Tue Nov 13, 2: Thus I took everything apart again, measured the fan cables and tested the fan with a power supply, but everything seems to be perfectly intact.

I hope the stinkpad won’t suddenly explode or burst into flames – at least my Li-Ion battery pack from the EL is not a Sony flare shell. The “smaller one above the front IR port” is called “name label” vol3hmm.
It looks like a heatpipe at the lower front rim of the system board assembly. The diaphragm is embossed of thin foil with an unusually curved pattern similar like in modern headphones that apparently was designed to re-shaped and distribute partial vibrations similarly like the star shaped structure in the patented Manger loudspeaker.
The XD speakers play at least twice as loud and sound quite bright and much more powerful. If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
In my XD I cracked off this microswitch lever; despite I glued it back into place use an aligator clip to hold the lever and apply a tiny drop of superglue on the lever, NOT the switchthe lever didn’t spring out fully anymore and thus the switch could not detect when the lid was open.
Thank you for your response! Tue Nov 13, 3: Which one would you choose for a desktop? Goodbye Lorita, wherever you’ve gone However in direct soune both speaker types differ a lot.
The aluminium covered speakers sound better and especially much louder than the plain black ones. Only at high volume there are sometimes small residues of crackling, but it distorts only barely more than the other.
Anyone have the sound drivers for a IBM Thinkpad 760XD???
Because the trimmer was too thick, I pinched out with a string cutter the center plastic rail under that soynd and instead hotglued a flat plastic board a little lower to secure the trimmer against falling down and shorting the PCB underneath. The DOS sound rocks now and makes no crashes at all. Good luck finding the Mwave sample table, almost all the links on the net are dead.
Like with 760sd files some vibratos and pitchbends are completely missing, and timbres are very off. Best of luck getting your’s back to full fidelity.
I hope it won’t blow up.
