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.

Lenovo has the support for ibm products. The ibm site is just for servers.
Select model number in search for drivers.
Or install this software:
System Update helps you reduce the time, effort, and expense required
to support and maintain the latest drivers, BIOS, and other applications
for Think or Lenovo systems. It enables you to get the latest updates
from the Lenovo support site.
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 managerStart -> RunType 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) Please rate the answer and a testimonial (comment) if the solution helped you to solve the problem... Thanks for contacting Fixya
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.
