The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, 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 XP or Vista device drivers for your 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 You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).
can you use the internet, though( does it have ethernet or w-lan)? try to download the drivers for your laptop onlne or use a thumbdrive plus extra internet pc to get the data and install the drivers. if your not sure which cd-rom drive you have, look in hte bios (press del, F1 or F2 when booting), it should give you the manufacturer and model number, use this infoematon to get a driver( google or the manufacturer's homepage)from the net. install drivers, it should work then... good luck
what do use to transfer? usb stick or network connection?or cd/dvd-r? what os does your old machine have?
if both machines have valid and functioning OS(winxx) and both have usb 2.0 port, and you are transferring just back-up of personal data (doc's, mp3's, save-games etc., use) that amount up to less than 1 GB, try using usb-stick or empty mp3-player for file swapping.
else burn the files from old machine using the hopefully available cd/dvd-burner in it and transfer to newer.
for easily transferring the whole content of old harddisk unaltered, set up asmall win-home-network using dsl/lan-cable plus crossover adaptor (wire up both machines to one-another) and stream old harddisk content to new machine
is it laptop to laptop-transfer and you are somewhat familiar with hardware?
remove harddisk from older and put into new one!
by the way: if you can have win xp pro installed on newer machine for same or less price of win vista, try to get it(you do need a bit computer expertise - but we all like learning -don't we?
good luck, if not satisfied or too much options for one time, just comeback to me!
