Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
The driver, 1ga241ww, that is listed on IBM's web page does not work. In device manager, there are no yellow question marks, everything is fine in device manage, however, the sound still does not work. I have looked everywhere online to find a solution, any suggestions??
I had this exact same problem. Try this:
Above the keyboard are three hard keys for volume (down, up, and mute). The mute button only mutes, it does NOT unmute. To unmute, push the volume up button a few times. Now try your sounds again.
I was very confused because the hard mute key does not affect the GUI at all (you don't see the little speaker with the red x in the notification area). Hope this helps!

Check if the mute box is not ticked in the volume setting.
Check the sound level is not set to the minimum setting.
Connect headphones and check if you can hear sounds.
If none of these work then you could have a faulty audio device.
