The ThinkPad T410 is a laptop with little to no hardware issues.

Setup

Graphics

If you happen to have the nvidia graphics card, and you intend to use the properitary driver (packages called 'nvidia' from extra), you may have problems to use the fn keys to adjust the brightness of the backlight. The solution is to make a Xorg configuration file, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/15-nvidia.conf, with the following contents:

Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Device0"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
        Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"
        Option "NoLogo"        "true"
        Option "Coolbits"      "1"
        Option "TripleBuffer"  "True"
        Option "DPMS" "True"
EndSection

Where the important part is the option:

 Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"

This at least works for the graphics card:

 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)
