Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
I downgraded my lenovo T61 to xp from vista installed all the drivers but not getting any sound from the speakers or even headsets but the music is playing and is not saying you have a driver problem
Yes I have a t61 myself but I have a master image for where I work. Although they have all the correct software, drivers, programs etc that the t61 requires to run properly, I find that there are still some problems with the sound as well. SOMETIMES, not always, the sound will not work with the speakers OR the headphones. This may not be the exact same problem as yours, but for some strange reason, I fix it just by putting the laptop on standby and then starting it up again. Yes, it is strange, but it works for me :)

Hi I am vortash sorry to say as great as XP is the driver section is not as comprehensive as Vista so I doubt if the drivers for your sound card have been installed .. it would have probbably chosen a generic driver and they dont always work ..
First thing to do is identify what type of sound card you have if you go to control panel then device manager click on sound and video controlers and see if the sound card is registered there if it is check with your specs in your manual if you have one or find your set online and see what the sound card should be . download the updated drivers for that card . uninstall the sound card listed from device manager and shut down restart and the computer should do the rest hope this is of help Regards Vortash

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: -
