    You can but you shouldn't play any games on it because it can trigger overload shut off which will cause the system to turn off abruptly.

    No display improvement using dsanke bios with B156HAN07.0, unfortunately. Still no brightness control, and stuck on NVIDIA driver 378.92 (black screen on anything later).

    I've found following IBM adapter

    https://www.ebay.com/p/IBM-Lenovo-A...-Place-Kiosk-4838-POS-System-Tested/704838736

    Everything looks promising, plug shape is the same, voltage almost the same, power output sufficient for low load in travel, however, plug pins have different signs, they're like 90* rotated:

    IBM adapter:

    Do you think is it possible to safely re-wire plug? can it work, or might there be some more hidden , dangerous differences that can cause damage?

    No, voltage and ground is all.

    You can't re-wire the plug itself since it's molded, but you can re-arrange and re-solder the wires in the cable to accomplish the same result. Just make sure to use a multimeter; not only for verification it is working (and check for inadvertent shorts), but also to identify the polarity of the individual wires. They're usually black plus white or blue and you could gamble on that, but I'd want to make dead certain before hooking it up ...

    There's two options;
    1. Splice all three or four wires inside the cable and measure each's voltage while the adapter is plugged in. Have to be a it careful here and make sure none of them are close to one another.
    2. Open the two adapter halves and measure the cables by setting the multimeter to resistance, one pen at the exposed wire and the other at the wire end where it's soldered to the adapter's pcb. This way you don't have to measure a 'hot' adapter. The brick will open quite easily by wedging a broad screwdriver or a big, fat kitchen knife in-between the two sections. Re-assemble with black duct tape or a bit of glue.

    Sometimes he "disappears" doing personal stuff, he might be sick or on vacation, then he comes back, you need to be patient. Look for new postings from him, sometimes that helps - but may only indicate he is back and responding to posts and email and may still take some time to get to your request. Be nice and understanding in posts and email, it goes a long way to getting a response.

    Well I know I'm not the only one to experience such a problem when replacing ****ty stock fans with ASUS ones, the PCH doesn't get enough air movement because of the bottom hole mods, so I need to add that copper block to it.
