    Looks like we had both the same experiences, and the same plan...you bought one of the high capacity discounted Samsung EVOs too, right? :thumbsup:

    BTW, while I do have issues with some windows and the mind-bogglingly persistent-through-several-reinventions failure of Windows at solving the problem of scaling, Chrome isn't one of them. Are you sure you've found all the places to adjust text size and DPI?

    Also, I recommend "Classic Shell" (free) to help address some of the frustrating lack of access to non-"App" Windows features, though it is very ugly until make sure you have the large text selected, you double the icon sizes, and then reboot. I use only the Start Menu replacement so far.

    A few questions:
    • Has anyone tried reassigning the volume buttons for other uses?
    • How many people are experiencing the HDMI blanking issue?
    • On Linux, can the CPU frequency be set at 100% indefinitely via /sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/min_perf_pct ?

    Hi everyone!


    Thank you for your contributions to this thread, and insights about the T904.

    @demalion and @Deanwvu:

    what do you find to be the benefits in opting for lower RAM/HHD specs directly from Fujitsu (US shop site), and then replacing these components by higher spec'd ones, bought from a 3rd party vendor?

    In a quick search on Newegg, I found potential savings to be around $140:

    My desired config:
    i7-4600U, 8GB DDR3L SDRAM, 256GB SSD, Port Replicator: $2,974 (Fujitsu US)

    Lower specs config:
    i7-4600U, 4GB DDR3L SDRAM, 320GB HHD, Port Replicator: $2,499 (Fujitsu US)
    + Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600 ($104), + SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 256GB SATA III MLC SSD ($208) (Newegg)

    So, in the end, going through the "3rd vendor replacement route", you'd end up paying $2811, instead of $2,974.

    Not that $140 isn't money (I'll consider the Port Replicator came free), but is this it? :)

    I've not found a solution for the HDMI blanking issue.

    It seems to be a driver issue though. If it happens I can get it to work by going into the Intel driver to muli monitor and reassign it to extended mode. Then I created a profile so whenever it happens I can simply reload the profile.

    But the problem is still there.

    Hi,
    first I have to apologize for my rusty English. I have got the same issues like SF6. Speed Fan displays core temperatures till max. 50°C. That seems for me quite low. To make sure that these core temperatures won’t be exceeded the cpu fan react very sensitive (according to cpu tact?!?). Already a download produce rather loud fan noises.
    I have just contacted Fujitsu. I will report if I have got a proposal for solution of Fujitsu.

    Thanks Deanvwu, I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I got an EVO 750gb. What was your process for installing windows 8. Did you just boot up with the new drive and a dvd drive attatched and then the install went from there? And it installed all of the nessessarry drivers.

    I'll have to get my hands on a dvd or try a usb drive method.

    For Chrome, please share what your settings are to make it tolerable..

    I did check the box in the shortcut to "Disable Display Scaling...." in the "Compatibility" tab of the properties.

    The issue I have, I think, is a combination of default font size.

    Please, if you would, share your settings that make Chrome manageable, particularly your default font sizes and your default zoom level.

    I've attached a screenshot of my Gmail tab... Gmail in particular looks HORRIBLE on Chrome (with my settings, of course), and it looks normal on IE.

    EDIT: I have also already enabled "Touch UI" and "HiDPI" in the Chrome://flags menu.

    I have a USB external DVD drive, and booted to it to install the recovery media (Windows 8.1) on the new SSD.

    Once windows was running and updated, I downloaded a utility from the Fujitsu website called "Fujitsu Software auto-installer," which auto-downloads and installs all the relevant drivers for the T904.

    For those who want to install using USB, I posted this on the HP forums when I had an elitebook revolve. The instructions will work the same.

    Re: Windows 8.1 clean install with Windows 8 OEM k... - HP Enterprise Business Community

    I haven't got the T904 yet, but it should be easier as all you need to do is make it a bootable USB.

    You will need:



    1. USB Drive with at leat 8GB.

    2. YUMI Creator (pendrivelinux.com)

    use YUMI usb creator and create a USB bootable with windows 8.1 ISO).

    Does anyone know if the T904 has corning gorilla glass? The T902 appears to have corning glass.
