View Full Version : Any T4010 users still out there?
07-26-2007, 01:24 PM
Or has everyone moved on to the T4210/T4215?
For me, I just can't spend the money to buy a new tablet only two years after getting this one... so I'm still using my T4010D. I've invested in it a little bit too, by upgrading the RAM, hard drive, and purchasing the bay-battery.
I was just wondering if any of you T4010 users are using Vista? If so, how do you cope with the lack of memory card reader support?
I really want to use Vista (I have a copy!) but I use my card reader enough to hold me back from switching...

While I have two T4010D's and a T4020, I have stayed with Win XP Pro Tablet Edition, since I didn't want to experience the performance downgrade of Vista along with the OS upgrade!...Perhaps until Vista SP1 or SP2. Also, do be careful with the driver (or lack thereof) issues which can occur with Vista upgrades.
One question for you: would you have any information on disassembly instructions for the T4000 series, or specifically for our 4010D's? I've got a bad screen on one, and some bad keys on another.

I'm running Vista Business on my T4020 and it's OK. Problem was that Fujitsu doesn't provide any Vista drivers for the T40xx series of Lifebooks. My video and audio use the XP drivers -- and they still work OK although I don't get Aero. The button drivers and other hardware drivers are from the T4215 series -- and they work fine.
This is not likely to improve as Fujitsu just wants to sell new machines, not get "old" machines working under Vista. So, waiting for Vista SP 1 (or even, SP 2) is not going to fix anything.
Also, you will never get Aero on this box because it uses the (now) infamous Intel 915 chipset -- the one in the news that MS called Vista-capable when Intel knew that it wouldn't run Aero. Intel has already gone on record as saying it will NOT write Aero drivers for that chipset.
So, good news is that you can run Vista; bad news is that it takes a lot of work scrounging and testing different driver version.
