Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I format my IBM Pentium 4 personal computer and later realize that i have lost my VGA controller and sound driver.
If you have Vista the updfates will find it automatically.
If not there is universal multimedia controller and the realteck sound drivers are pretty universal so try them to resolve sound.
I assume you went intro device manager, right clicked on the unknown device and updated drivers automatically using the internet. If not try that 1st

VGA, DVI, and component video cables do not support audio signals. HDMI cables do support audio signals, but not all HDMI-enabled video cards support audio. If your HDTV has an audio input, you might be able to connect a separate audio cable from your computer's sound card directly to the TV. Otherwise, you'll need to connect the audio signal to a different output device, such as external computer speakers or your home stereo system. For more information about sound cards, see Sound cards: frequently asked questions.
From Wikipedia.org search VGA connection:
Video Graphics Array (VGA) refers specifically to the display hardware first introduced with the IBM PS/2 line of computers in 1987, but through its widespread adoption has also come to mean either an analog computer display standard, the 15-pin D-subminiature VGA connector or the 640×480 resolution itself. While this resolution was superseded in the personal computer market in the 1990s, it is becoming a popular resolution on mobile devices.
VGA was the last graphical standard introduced by IBM that the majority of PC clone manufacturers conformed to, making it today (as of 2010[update]) the lowest common denominator that all PC graphics hardware can be expected to implement without device-specific driver software. For example, the Microsoft Windows splash screen appears while the machine is still operating in VGA mode, which is the reason that this screen always appears in reduced resolution and color depth.
VGA was officially superseded by IBM's Extended Graphics Array (XGA) standard, but in reality it was superseded by numerous slightly different extensions to VGA made by clone manufacturers that came to be known collectively as Super VGA.
The same VGA cable can be used with a variety of supported VGA resolutions, ranging from 640x400px @70 Hz (24 MHz of signal bandwidth) to 1280x1024px @85 Hz (160 MHz) and up to 2048x1536px @85 Hz (388 MHz). There are no standards defining the quality required for each resolution, but higher-quality cables typically contain coaxial wiring and insulation which make them thicker. A quality cable should not suffer from signal crosstalk which occurs when the signals in one wire induce unwanted currents in adjacent wires, ghosting which occurs when impedance mismatches cause signals to be reflected (note that ghosting with long cables may not be the fault of the cable but may instead be caused by equipment with incorrect termination or by use of passive splitters), and other signal degradation effects; shorter VGA cables are less likely to introduce significant degradation. Some higher-end monitors and video cards featured 5 separate BNC connectors for RGBHV signal, allowing highest quality connection using five 75 Ohm coaxial cables.
I hope this helps, I find the sales reps at Best Buy very helpful.
