I reformatt my thinkpad 600x to WIN xp SP3, then ive lost my audio, I had no audio drivers to install. Ive tried the different audio drivers offered by lenovo for thinkpad 600x,but then i failed to get the...

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: -

You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

How do i make the video performance up to speed for ibm 600x?

This is a very old computer that came with Windows 98 installed. You do not have enough computer Ram to watch video on this computer. This computer will never be any good for watching video unless the Ram is upgraded to as much as it will hold and be able to use. Unless it will hold 4 times what it came with you will never be happy watching video. It is just out of date technology.

My laptop not use a pirated or copy dvd

While it's not legal to download, and burn DVD's illegally, if your rom has issues reading burned DVD / CD data, your drive may be faulty, or just needs to be blown out. Use a can of compressed air available from most office supply stores and blow any dust or debris out of the drive. Be careful not to touch the Lense, they are quite delacate.

If your drive still fails to read burned media, but does fine with normal media, the drive may not be able to read burned media at all, and you will need to replace it to do so.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds

Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at,, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
