Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

Ethernet drivers I have a IBM T20 type 2647-81G laptop. I have just re-installed Win2000, and used the drivers from the Lenovo website, but I still have an 'unknown device' listed, and no ethernet controller is shown on the device manager. I have tried the 2 drivers from Lenovo that they list, but these do not work. Is there another driver I need to install before the ethernet controller perhaps?

My thinkpad R50 also has same problem, I update the driver and patch from the lenovo . You can update your network card diver and then open the admin tools to add the ethernet controller. Take a try.

Good luck.

A friend passed down her ibm thinkpad t20 to me, it seems to have more driver missing than it has on it. I need drivers for everything!! please help me!!


The drivers you need are available from the website listed below, please note that the drivers only support Windows XP and below. Because of the age of the laptop, you will not find drivers to support Vista/7:

Ethernet controller i need to instal ibm thinkpad r50e


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

Will not detect ethernet on windows XP or win2000


If you have Cd utilities enclosed in the laptop you should install that specially the chipset, VGA, Network,Audio. these are the basic installation in windows operating system. Howver if you don;t have that CD/DVD utilities you can download the driver here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-4JSQHB

My thinkpad doesnt works!


If you can, upgrade to WinXP (or LINUX) which will make things easier, or else use the re-install disk for your laptop. If you really want Win2000 to work and have lost your original disks, you need to download the appropriate drivers for that machine and install them under Win2000. It is the only way to get things up and running again. Make sure in device manager there are no yellow marks showing error state devices.

Don't use a driver management or automated program to install the drivers; download them one by one from the IBM web site and install and reboot cycle each one separately.

Good luck...
