Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

4 Answers

IBM T30 Without warning I lost sound in my T30 with Windows XP installed. Downloaded a sound driver file for my type of T30 from Lenovo website, extracted files to the hard drive, followed the written instruction, selected run, typed the path for setup.exe file as written in the installation instruction and hit "enter". After a few initial screens, driver installation stops and the message reads "no SoundMsx driver found". Hardware list shows among other drivers Legacy Audio Drivers, but no SoundMax Integrated Audio Device is listed. Any suggestions please as to what to do to get the sound back? Thanks

Solution: I use Ubuntu Linux on Thinkpad T series and also use Audacity for recording. Linux user for 10 years. No viruses, no time spent with virus protection. Not perfect, but my set-up stomps!!! I have burned up cpu's, outboard cdrw, I have used the machine extensively and for a billion hours. Linux / IBM Thinkpad is likely where I will stay. My friend bought an R series and counldn't stand it, he went with a T61. Thing weighs 25 pounds but he is happy with the performance. Good luck. PS I just broke the line out jack on my T31 because I use it soooo much. I think I will go with a USB audio device since I move the machine to different sound and video systems at home. I have three different locations where I work or play audio or movies. The headphone jack is weakness. I probably fell asleep with the machine on my lap and maybe it fell off and sprung the jack because I almost always use the line-out to go a Big Stomping HiFi Loud Audio System. -my house sounds like a Rave Party when I playback music on my T30. :-)

Kenzie, it's very possible that your monitor's messed up. My dad dropped the laptop before too. Same problem. The Z would show up, but the image on the screen was faint, as if there was no backlight.

Per the recommendations online, I tried replacing the inverter board, but I found out that it was either the LCD screen or the graphics cable leading from the mainboard. I bought a LCD screen off of ebay for cheap, and replaced it. Right now, I'm typing on the t30 as we speak. There are manuals online for disassembling your t30, and if you're not very comfortable doing it, you could always get someone who's tech savvy, or a geek (like me).

As far as boot up issues, I noticed I got this even after I repaired the LCD. For some reason, it works whenever I tilt-stand my laptop to the left. For example lean your laptop to the side while the monitor's opened so it stands on the left side of the machine. I know it's kind of weird, but hey. It works :)

I heard that this is due to some magnet problem. Maybe if the solder wears off or hard drops cause it to move, then we have a problem.

Either way, good luck. Reply back to this board if you're having anymore problems.

Before anything, did u goto control panel\[icon]sound & audio devices\[menu]audio\volume

If the mute all button is check, u loose all audio.

sometimes another program will by defult will over ride your settings and or mute the audio for its own purposes.
