Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2681
The part of my hd with the drivers and backup drivers is where the crash was, so I can boot to windows, but none of my drivers have loaded,so there is no access to CD drive,modem,screen drivers etc. I can boot to cd using another xp install disk, but I know the drivers are wrong and it will screw up my registration stuff. I have managed to create a bootable cd with the driver files on it, hoping I can connect to the net nd get the rest, but am having problems getting the files copied over. Is there an easier way? Maybe a universal fix cd for this unit?
I would download the ethernet drivers and put them on a USB stick. From there, you can boot the computer and put in the stick.
If that doesn't work, you can get a USB ethernet card that comes with drivers. I have to resort to the USB ethernet a couple of times a month (but I fix lots of systems). It's a good little trick.
If you still have trouble, let me know. I'll monitor the thread.
