Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Christian, well done, good job! Did you replace the HDD with an SSD? I am not quite sure what slows down the USB, though. The i7-2640m should give it another push, although not as much as the RAM upgrade. The only thing I had to replace because it broke was the fan last year, that was out of balance...

Re: Display tausch Fujitsu A557

Ich hatte bei meinem A557 auch das Display getauscht. Wenn ich mit richtig erinnere, kann man die Umrandung oben und an den Seiten bei geöffnetem Deckel abklipsen, und den unteren Rand bei geschlossenem Deckel. Die Scharnierabdeckungen auf Deinem Foto könnten im Weg sein, fällt mir gerade ein. Man m...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Update: I replaced the CPU again, swapped the dual-core i7-2640M with a quad-core i7-2670QM. Again, this is outside the specs of the official data sheets, but I just did a quick test run: It works! So far so good. I know the i7-2670QM pulls 45W instead of the 35W of the i7-2640M, and I just noticed ...

Re: Tastaturwechsel LIFEBOOK A557

Evtl. zu spät für Aminais, aber vielleicht hilfreich für alle, die später suchen. Ich habe das bei meinem A557 nach dieser Anleitung gemacht, das ist 1:1 das Gleiche:

Re: Tastaturen von zwei Lifebook AH531/GFO wechseln lassen

Ok, vielleicht ein bisschen spät für AnselmR, aber vielleicht hilft es Anderen. Die Tastatur kann man beim AH531 schnell und unkompliziert selber tauschen. Auf Youtube gibt es ein Video wie das geht:

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Update on the screen upgrade (1366x768 to 1920x1080) of the AH531: I found one that looks compatible, bought a 40Pin 2Channel 6Bit cable (original cable is 1Channel), but the connector on the mainboard side didn't fit. Re-soldering the cables might be an option, but then again - not for me. I abando...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Hi Mumbo, memtest says they are 8192 MB DDR3-1600 Kingston 99U5428-018.A00LF . The other pair is labelled Hynix 8GB Rx8 PC3L - 12800S - 11 - 13 - F3 . And I tested a third brand in the 531 which was labelled 8GB DDR3 2Rx8 12800S 1600MHz Samsung . I wasn't actually worried when buying the RAM, just b...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@TimInCleveland, affirmative. I know the AH531 datasheets state a max RAM size of 4GB, and a max capacity of 8GB. According to the Intel datasheet, the processor supports 16GB of RAM. I did a bit of internet research, and found one single forum article on the net written by somebody who successfully...

Re: LIFEBOOK AH531

What's your new system?
My AH531 is running on a 256GB SSD and 16GB RAM, on Linux Mint 18.3. and I replaced the DVD drive for a 1TB HDD.
It's a real work horse.
Now I am trying to figure out if it's possible to replace its original display by a 1920x1080 display.
Just for kicks.

Re: LIFEBOOK AH531

ath_gr your initial post is nearly two years old and you probably have a new laptop anyway. Maybe this will help others, though: I have an AH531 connected via HDMI to an external Iiyama XB3070WQS (30"), on a 2560x1600 resolution. My current OS is Linux Mint 18.3. There are no additional drivers...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

I wrote it elsewhere in this forum already, I upgraded my AH531/GFO to 16GB RAM (2x8GB) and a 256 GB SSD. That resulted in a significant boost of performance. Swapping the processor, you probably wouldn't notice any difference. [EDIT:] @stepat80, the Intel data sheet for your current CPU confirms it...

Re: Hard drive replacement, Lifebook AH531

Just to confirm: the AH531 supports more than 500GB HDDs, mine is working perfectly well with a 1TB SSD and a 2TBHDD.

Re: Upgrading my Lifebook AH531

I upgraded my Lifebook AH531/GFO with - a 256GB SSD (check for the maximum height you can use, I think it is 9mm max.), - 16GB RAM (2x8GB, it is 8GB per slot), - and swapped the DVD drive for an additional 1TB HDD. The OS, swap space and additional software is on the SSD, all my data are on the HDD....
