The thinkpads have a sound key on the keyboard. usually operated by holding down the FN key and pressing the key with the (think its blue) speaker symbol on it. Make sure this is on and the volume is turned up.

Also check that the volume under the Sound option in control panel is on.

If these are suggest obtaining latest sound drivers from IBM web site and reinstalling them.

My IBM Thinkpad R52 PC notebook does not give sound


Try installing the latest audio driver.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the variousdrivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Wireless not found


You should check the BIOS. Although it is extremely unlikely that the BIOS has it disabled. Verify that whether you have a wireless card installed from there. If so some new laptops have a switch which disables the wireless card. This can be usually be found on front or sides. You could also check device manager and make sure the NIC is enabled. To get the device manager Start -> Run Type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. Expand and check for X or ! with red / yellow color for each (if on a failure that will be shown)

Sound problem


Go to control panel,and check device manager to see if you have any problems. If not, click on Hardware and Sound, then on Sound, and see if somehow your laptop speakers have been turned off. Reconfigure them anyway, and test the sound there. If that doesn't fix it, go to IBM and reinstall Realtec. Sometimes it gets corrupted, and sometimes it takes more than one installation to get it fixed. Let me know if you have any problems.
