Page Intermittent Problems Intermittent problems Intermittent system hang problems can be due to a variety of causes that have nothing to do with a hardware defect, such as cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement should be considered only when a problem recurs. Page 58 Table 7. Page 59 Table 7. Specifications continued Feature Description Battery v Li-ion battery 4 cells 2.

Table Lock your computer. Select a power scheme that has been created by Power Manager. Page 65 Table Read this section carefully before replacing any FRU. Screw notices Loose screws can cause a reliability problem. In the ThinkPad computer, this problem is addressed with special nylon-coated screws that have the following characteristics: v They maintain tight connections. Page Retaining Serial Numbers Before replacing the system board, save the original serial number by doing the following: 1.
From the main menu, select 1. Set System Identification. Page 68 When you replace the system board, you must set the UUID on the new system board as follows: 1. From the main menu, select 2. Assign UUID. From the main menu, select 3. Set ECA Information. Be sure to observe the following general rules: 1. Do not try to service any computer unless you have been trained and certified. An untrained person runs the risk of damaging parts. Any other battery could ignite or explode.
Removal steps of battery pack Unlock the battery release lever 1. Holding the battery release lever in the unlocked position 2 , remove the battery pack in the direction shown by arrow When installing: Install the battery pack along the slide rails of the slot. The hard disk drive is sensitive to physical shock. Improper handling can cause damage and permanent loss of data.

Page Thinkpad Sl Table Page 88 Table Page 91 Table This accounts for a below average illumination of only With its reflective display surface, the display shows subjectively vibrant colors and a sharp picture. The measurements show, however, an extremely high black value of 1. The usefulness of the notebook out of doors in brightly lit areas is, on the one hand, provided by its good average brightness of The viewing angle stability is not necessarily one of the display's strengths.
In the vertical angle for example, even at small departures from the ideal angle there is considerable degradation to the picture in the form of an acute darkening as well as color distortions. Although horizontally the viewing angle is somewhat more stable, adverse effects quickly appear as well due to acute reflection at flat angles. The smallest representative of the SL series is also available with a whole line of CPUs , beginning with a 2. This supports Directx10 and also has integrated video decoding abilities.
This allows it to relieve the processor, for example during the playback of HD videos. However, the primary field of use for this graphics solution is rather in less resource demanding office applications. What is notable about this result is the extremely large disparity between the X and the Amilo Si from Fujitsu-Siemens, both of which are based on the Intel Centrino 2 platform.
Although it possesses a high performance 2. Here the other hardware components come in to play, such as the RAM and hard disk , which make a similarly important contribution to a good result for the PC Mark The notebook supports a maximum of MB in two 2GB memory slots.
The sale price of the system thereby profits at the expense of performance. It appears totally different when one exclusively considers the CPU. The P processor can give a thoroughly good performance in the Cinebench R10benchmark test. This also applies for the other available Intel Core 2 Duo Penryn processors. One extensive comparison test of the current Intel Centrino2 Penryn lineup can be found here. One should only choose the Celeron CPU with minimal standards from processing speeds.
These results place the hard disk in the middle of the field for comparable mass storage devices. In the noise emissions test, the SL behaves very similarly to the other representatives of the Thinkpad SL series, the SL and the SL, which have already been tested.
In the idle state , the fan operates continuously at a low level with a recorded volume of Subjectively, this level of noise can be described as not disturbing and inconspicuous. When performance demands on the notebook rise, the picture hardly changes at first. Only after a while does the system fan raise its rotation speed, thereby also increasing the volume of the notebook to Altogether, the SL is describably even under such demands as a relatively quiet device.
The observed surface temperatures always remain in the green area. These reach, on the top side of the base unit, a maximum of up to Also, the perceived warming of the case remained, subjectively, within good bounds. The Thinkpad SL offers two speakers , on the left and the right above the keyboard.
In spite of the present situation of the sound sources, these sound somewhat restrained and produce almost no low tones in their sound spectrum. The maximum volume seems thoroughly acceptable, though a slight overload can be observed at the maximum volume. For downmarket music playback at an adaptedly low volume, the speakers are certainly usable. The 3. For its mobile energy source , the SL uses a 4 cell lithium-ion battery. With a capacity of 2. However, under performance demands in the BatteryEater Classic test max.
The SL also achieved a thoroughly useful value in the test of practical WLan run time at the maximum display brightness and with the energy saver profile activated. In this case, a life of just over three hours can be reached. In this light, mobile use of the SL is definitely conceivable. Moreover, if higher standards with regard to battery life are needed, the Thinkpad SL can also be equipped with a 6 cell, or even a 9 cell battery.
Depending on the configuration of the notebook, up to a doubling of the measured lifetime can be expected from this change. Finally, the Thinkpad SL, the last of its series in our test, shows what it can do. With respect to the case, the SL offers a solid base with good stability.
With a weight of a little more than two kilograms, the notebook is satisfactory for mobile use. In this regard, although, the display cover with its high gloss finish lends itself to criticism, since it promotes the appearance of dirt and scuff marks , especially with mobile use.
As a special bonus, Lenovo equips all SL models with a UMTS preparation , which can be used with hardware from each particular provider. In terms of performance , the Thinkpad SL can be classified as an office notebook , but depending on the choice of CPU, thoroughly respectable processing power is possible. The SL scores extremely positively in the area of emissions. The notebook shows both a low level of noise as well as low surface temperatures.
This is optimal for use in quiet surroundings. The battery life , with the smallest available 4 cell battery, also appears thoroughly practical. Optionally, the more performance-capable battery packs with 6, or even 9 cells are available. Because of the interesting entry price of considerably less than Simon Leitner. Smart Business Starter.
