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).

Which operating system supports IBM thinkpad 600x

All versions of windows except Vista and Windows 7.
You may find it difficult to purchase Windows version up and including XP.
You may need to install more RAM and a a 6 to 10 Gb hard drive.
The smallest hard drive available is approx 100Gb but the BIOS in the Thinkpad won't support a hard drive this large.
