This week has been an interesting week. We conducted our first random laptop raid, wireless problems, and our first experience repairing a ThinkPad laptop.This week has been an interesting week. We conducted our first random laptop raid. We were searching for laptops will illegal programs (according to school policy). We borrowed 14 laptops from a lab, and it took us 4 hours to get them processed. We are still having some problems with our Hewlett Packard AP420 wireless access points. One of the WAPs locks up about every 2 weeks and has to be reset. Most days I would recommend the HP WAPs, but not this week. We sure have had our share of problems with them. I ended my week by trying to find the FRU (Lenovo’s part number) on a ThinkPad R50e motherboard. According to the documentation, the entire machine must be torn down to find the part number. When really all that you have to do is remove the optional memory card cover on the bottom of the laptop. The new Mobo should be here on Monday. Let’s see how long it takes me to put my first one back together.
