SOURCE: WHAT ARE THE DRIVERS NEEDED IF I WANT TO FORMAT MY IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 PC Notebook?

is the windows cd for ibm specifically?
if not then you will need:
a sound card driver (optional)
a graphics card driver (optional)
a cd rom driver (maybe)
drivers for usb ports (optional)
and any other drives/ input devices on your laptop will need drivers.
when formatting bear this in mind. All data will be lost! proceed knowingly and with caution. one mess up will land you in problems up to your shoulders!
i recommend finding out how to do it safely

SOURCE: Lost wireless - Ibm thinkpad r40

haha worrying isnt it...
after reinstallation of windows no drivers for blutooth , wireless quite often modem and same vga,
windows by default does not install because need specific software ...(drivers)
what you need to do is first of all find out what wifi it is ; like wlan400 e.g.
you then need to download and install the driver for it .as soon as the driver is present windows will detect and install device,
look in device manager for devices with no drivers intalled.
same precedure for each device.

SOURCE: thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared

Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

Ibm thinkpad r40 windows xp-pro after formatting and re-installing the system, all updates and SPs downloaded and installed, the wireless "disappeared"! the radio led wouldn't lit, in the connection list...


if drivers installed device is looking for wifi manager which is the software package for wifi.
you can goto control panel open administrative tools select sevices and scroll to wireless zero config and press start.
this will then use windows settings.done
