From Lenovo. Go to their web site and download it. XP can find a windows version if you do not find the proper driver.

"Base System Device" is your card reader, I had the same problem. If you dont use it jst disable the device, otherwise the drivers should be on your alienware Master CD, if not get a tech support guy to send 'em to you.

SOURCE: I am having difficulty obtaining

Base System Device drivers are usually installed by what the manufacturer calls "Chipset" drivers. If you are running Windows XP, there is an Intel Chipset driver available at the Lenovo Support Page for your model. If you are running an Operating System other than Windows XP, I would go to the above page and compare the drivers listed there with what you are seeing in Device Manager. Install the ones that are missing. Hope this helps!

Stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP


Microsoft Help and Support says that "Code 28 (The drivers for this device are not installed)" appears when the Windows Sound System Compatible Driver for the Windows 2000 operating system is deleted upon the upgrade to Windows XP. It's possible to repair this code.


Instructions

1 Click on "Start."

2 On the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel."

3 In the "Control Panel" folder, click on "Performance and Maintenance."

4 Click on the "System" folder in the "Performance and Maintenance" folder.

5 Click on the tab titled "Hardware."

6 Click on the box that says "Device Manager."

7 Click on "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers."

8 Right-click on the device that prompts Windows XP to display Code 28 (it should be Windows Sound System Compatible Driver, also called the WDM driver). A drop-down menu will appear.

9 Click on "Update" and an Update Wizard will guide you through the installation of a new device driver, which should stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP.

it's a real problem.Drivers are programs or files that contain sets of instructions for the operating system detailing how best to operate or drive a certain piece of hardware. Youcam is a driver.
When you notice poor performance from a component it is time to upgrade your drivers.
But how?Here it comes:

You can find the latest downloads and drivers for your system using the following options:

  4. If your product is non-THINK notebooks, please perform the following steps:
    1. Click on the "ThinkPad" button.
    2. Click on "Most common files for Value Line notebooks".
    3. Look for your system here, for example "N500".

Option 3: Driver download listing.

  1. Go to Lenovo Support
  2. Keyin your product number using the "QuickPath" option.
    1. Product Number (ie. 1234-XYZ)
      For more details, please refer to Find My Product Number
      Your Lenovo product number should be either 7 / 10 alphanumeric characters.
    2. Product name (ie t60, w510, y500 or n500).
  3. Click on "Find My Product" button.
  4. Click on your product name.
  5. Click on "Download Drivers & Software" link. You will see your drivers arranged in categories.

I have lenovo y500, suddenly i lost my audio device after formating my notebook, every time shows no audio device. plz help me how can i solve it.


Your audio device is likely DSP based, and not actual hardware. You should be able to find the driver at lenovo.com. Once installed, then your audio device(s) should be detected and ready to use.

Multiple devices don't work after XP reinstall.


When you install a operating system, all the hardware drivers must be installed. Such as, chipset, graphics, Ethernet,modem, or what ever hardware you have.

So you need to go to the website of lenovo and download all the drivers
for your operating system, if the pc came with vista, and you put on xp,
they might not offer the drivers for xp, so you will have to look at every piece of hardware and go to there website and get the xp drivers.
This is the best way.

Or you can let windows find them for you.

See where the yellow shields are, click on the + sign and you will see the hardware,

now right click on the hardware and in the little window choose
Update Driver Software, then tell it to search the internet for the driver.

It will walk you through it , each page whan you click next.

Any more questions just post back.

I NEED MY WEBCAM WORKING IN LENOVO N500 WINDOWS 7


You need to enable the webcam by pressing Fn+Esc or Fn+F10 key combination. Also see if you can find the latest version of drivers on the lenovo support website for Windows 7 or at least Windows Vista. If it still doesnt get detected at least in device manager, try flashing the system BIOS to the latest version available on lenovo support website.
