    hello nic, I really appreciate your time and effort, but im

    either blind or usb-ethernet drivers are not here as i cennot see them?


  • s_b_simbad Mar 02, 2009

    ok mate, once again thanks a lot. Your spent time is really appreciated.

    On above link that you sent most of them were related to service parts and some to vga video something. I have entered pc serial number and it only came up with some graphics, sound and hard drive quick test software updates. It says that usb drivers not supported by windows and no option to download.

    Really struggling aggrr.

    thanks again

    Mate, you p.c abillitys are really great.

    As i was reading your last message, i realised what you on about but didnt click until i read it twice! ! Then i realised that service pack 1 had to be installed in order to update some part of missing drivers, not sure if it will work but >then 51% it will. DOUHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh haha.

    Downloading now service pack3 just to be on safe side, soon its done will inform you about the progress.

    once againNIC,

    HUGE THANK YOU for your time and effort you made.

    Will keep you updated with progress,

    You are the legend!

  • s_b_simbad Mar 02, 2009

    hello nic

    sorry for dissapointing you but system doesnt like service pack3, went to install service pack 1 instead but couldnt find the correct one from internet?

    Any suggestions from where can i download windows xp service pack 1-2&3?

  • s_b_simbad Mar 03, 2009

    hello agin nick,

    I have menaged to solve the problem. After installing the sp3 the whole system became weird and my safe mode dissapeared. Then, installed sp2 as well as sp3 but only after this some of the functions come back.

    AHHHH, what a nightmare, was banging the head agains the walll. Walked away from pc, come back after 1hour, and through menage devices i clicked on option usb(BUS) and this time came up with message that driver was missing and ask if i wanted to search for the driver on windows xp disc? so, i inserted xp disk and after about a minute it found the driver of the happy i was hahahah,

    So conclusion is, When i installed the windows xp, for some apparent reason drivers for usb (BUS), and the ethernet were corupted and not installed, despite being on the disc, ..why i dont know????

    I wouldn recomend to anyone to install top sp in first insance as in causes more hassle then predicted. Always start with sp1 if you could find one in not then sp2.

    mate, thanks for sharing the pain with me and thank you once more for all you effort

    Hey my friend!

    I saw the ethernet drivers when i checked the link for you, if you hit that arrow rhere it says "Refine results" you will see a lot of selections to do, the ethernet is under the Networking

    Im sure the USB is there to, just need to look for them.

    Im at work now so i cant help you search deeper, but all the drivers you need is there, just take the time to look out for them:)

    Hi again!

    I couldent just leave you out like i tok the time to search a little bit more on the IBM/Lennovo site..and i found this:

    If you dont have Win98 the drivers is including in the OS, like in XP or Win2000.

    So the drivers are supported..if u have win 2000 or later OS, but not supported in win98

    Hi again my friend!

    Hehe, that SP3 wasent good for many, including meself on one of my computers. I sugest you take it down to SP2, that one is good and safe and enough stable.

    If you know anyone working on a computershop that also repairs computers they can give you SP2, that always store big updates like that.

    Otherwise you can download it from microsoft. I will see if i can give u a direct link to do that...but not now. Now im home and the family is first thing on my list:) But i will look in to it forst thing tommorow back at work.

IBM ThinkCentre M50 Motherboard drivers
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
Windows XP/Vista/7/8

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Ibm thinkpad r60 hard drive not recognized in windows setup, but is recognized in bios. Why and hw the problem can be solved

It usually means that the Hard Drive and/or the adapter(plug) on the motherboard it plugs into needs a specific driver (storage) that is not in the list of drivers that the WIndows disc you are installing from has included on it. You may have to find this driver on the IBM Support site for your exact laptop and load it onto a USB flash drive from another computer, then load it from that USB flash drive during setup of Windows.

This can be tricky. If you can get a disc from IBM which loads this driver automatically you'd probably find it less of a hassle.

Ibm sound card drive

The motherboard (IBM FRU 13R8926) has on-board ADI SoundMax audio. It's used in a variety of IBM/Lenovo desktop computers- including ThinkCentre A50p and M50. This should be the download page for the A50p and M50 models:

You should be able to use the ADI driver-only download on newer (x86) versions of Windows; although it indicates 98SE/2000/XP, version worked fine on my Windows 7 Professional install.

IBM/Lenovo lists drivers under the system model number, rather than by component, but you can search the IBM and/or Lenovo site for the FRU number (13R8926, in this case) to find the systems that it goes with, and then pick one of those systems to find the relevant downloads.
