Where do the three wires connect to the motherboard for a lenovo t60 lcd screen?

There are three wires that come off the LCD screen that plug into the motherboard. They are black, white and gray. I am looking for a screen shot or a circuit number where they reconnect. The user manual does not show this one detail.
I have scoured the internet and find nothing
Thanks

Here's a link to the hardware manual for a T60 (/p):

If you have the widescreen model you can pull up the hardware manual from this page:

These wires are antenna wires. If you have a "G" wireless NIC inside your T60, the grey and black wires connect to it, and the white wire lies free underneath (to keep it from wandering around). If I recall correctly, the card is marked as to which one. The manual reference above for the card replacement will say.

I think if you have an "N" card, all three wires are used.

the wide screen manual has a much better picture but still doesn't have the level of detail need to determine the location of the wires.

Look in your hardware maintenance manual and look in the Table of Contents for Removing and Replacing an FRU. Then open up PCI Mini Express card. The diagram in my HMM is very clear and shows where the black and grey wires go on the card. I assume you have a "G" card but I don't know.  ... Thinkpads_User

Hi thinkpad user,
VERY helpful!  On the WIFI card (Thinkpad 802.11 a/g/n WiFi Card 42T0865)  I have three connection points 1=TR1, 3=RO and 2=TR2.  What goes where?  Checking my manual on the PCI Mini Express card page now.

Thanks. I have a "G" card so only deal with two and I was looking around a bit myself. I am glad you got it sorted out. .... Thinkpads_User
