    I didn't try that. I figured it wasn't worth the risk of shorting something. I did get a new main 6-cell to replace my old one, and that gives me about 3 hours or so, which is fine.

    I did have to dismiss the "Non-Lenovo Battery" notification in the Lenovo utilities, but it works perfectly.

    I think someone else in this topic also had this problem with bay battery and it is rather common behaviour with replacement bay batteries for x301. It is really unfortunate, I would certainly buy one of these for $30.

    Hi,

    can you also upload that BIOS I've asked previously? Thanks.

    You mean the dual IDA one or the new MDL one? Didn't I already send you the latter? If not, I won't be able to now either because I'm on Holiday. I'll be home again in September but will off to college in the UK a few days later, so I don't know if I'll get around to uploading the BIOS any time soon.

    The old one that I kept distributing simply added the dual IDA capability (200MHz higher clock rate). You can read about it earlier on in this thread. Not too long ago I got a modified version of the MDL forum BIOS. Their original one removed the whitelists but had no dual IDA. So the new modified version of that combines both, removed whitelist and dual IDA.

    OK, but like I said, I don't have it with me right now. I'll try to get it up sometime next week.

    It's a great tradition you have in Europe. We should also take the month of August off in the US. It would improve our attitude.

    If you send me a copy of whatever you send them, I'll put it up on my Dropbox with the color profile.

    If i understood correctly, this dual IDA stuff wont work without additional software and not out of the box?

    I assume from the enthusiasm that these BIOS' are markedly superior to stock. Please let me know if they are available somewhere.

    Thanks!
