Question about IBM NetVista M42 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My computer problem

My computer is actually IBM Netvista 8305-ISA. First, I installed a cd-rom (LG brand) into this desktop and it cannot detect it. Thinking that it sometimes cannot shut down properly, so I decided to reinstall Windows XP. But when I finish install it, I boot it up and safe mode page appeared (it has few selections, Safe mode, safe mode with internet network, last known good condition, startup normally and bla bla bla). When I select one of the options, it will automatically restart and go to the same screen. I tried make the hard disk into a slave drive of my other computer and reinstall Windows XP, but it seems to be corrupted and cannot be detected with any other computers. Before this, the HDD have no bad sectors and is working just fine. Please help. My computer ia about 6 years old and it is Pentium (R) 4 (845G chipset), 256 RAM, 40GB HDD with 10GB slave drive.

Ibm netvista 8305 61u audio driver windows 7 32bit?

The same model Netvista can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your Netvista, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
