Can't get networking going on IBM Thankpad T-42

Hello, I have an IBM Thinkpad T-42. I have just installed Windows XP Professional from scratch and I'm in the process of trying to get networking going so I can access the Internet, etc. I have gone to the Lenova site, downloaded all the drivers for this system, and installed them. I installed the Ethernet drivers, wireless drivers, etc., etc. In spite of that, every time I restart my computer, it finds new hardware, the network adapter, the monitor, etc., etc.I do not have any CD I can put in for the computer to find the drivers from. I thought if I installed all these drivers, they would automatically be found.Is there anything you can do for me?

When you reboot and it finds the hardware point it to the directory you downloaded the drivers to for each device. Make sure that if they are zipped or compressed in any way you unpack them first. Place each driver in it’s own directory.

Hi,

Click on the link below and select the correct driver for your system. I have already chosen your laptop model. A quick note to say that XP drivers will install on a Win2000 system.

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: -
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
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).

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP audio driver for your model laptop,
www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39956.html

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.
