  1. Hi, thanks for all the pictures! Unfortunately you missed the only part I am interested in: the SPI flash chip hosting the firmware but it is probably the SOIC package with 8 pins “behind” the DIMM slots, the one with the orange dot. I am only interested in its position so I am fine with the existing pictures, thanks again!

  2. Hello,
    I have a Thinkpad T410, and I’ve disassembled it to use it as a file server in a case (desktop), everything is working properly and no problem except the power button. Since the power button is placed on the keyboard package, and all the functions of that package is connected to the board through one cable, I can’t figure out which node on the board is responsible for the power on/off. How can I figure that out? So I can add a power button to the system without using the keyboard package.
    Thanks
