Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi, I have an IBM R51 Type 2887 Thinkpad that came with Windows XP Home edition. I formatted the laptop and put the Windows XP Professional in it. However, it could not install few key drivers (Eg. CD ROM, LAN, Wireless, Bluetooth, etc). How can install those drivers. Without LAN or Wireless, I can't even go online to find support from that laptop. Please help. Umang Taneja

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP audio driver for your model laptop,
www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39956.html

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.

Hi I have an IBM thinkpad R51, type 2887 model AVG and I need to purchase and replace Harddrive ? What type of Harddrive do I need ?


if your gonna replace your hard drive anyway,just take the old one out and tap it forcefully,better still take it apart and clean it of dust etc and gently micro-lubricate its moving parts see if you can get it working again--replace with same spec model--consult manufacturers site/manual for correct item.--good luck!
