My R40 does not have sound. In device manager all drivers are installed for the sound card. Sound would play through headphone jack but not copmuter speakers. I attached docking station and could still use headphones off of it. When going into the system speaker in device manager / system devises it says that the system speakers drive is not installed. I have gone to Lenovo website and downloaded and installed the drivers. Still no luck. Now my headphones wont play any sound. I have checked all the other basic stuff. Sound turned up, media player turned up. Is there something I am missing?? Please help!!
i formatted the r60 and with the windows xp i am able to hear all the default sound ,but when i try for any other or no sound device installed , i tried downloading the driver and installed still its not working
Have you tried going into your master volume contro properties and turned everything up there. If you double click on your volume control near the time and go to properties you'll find all the controls there. Let me know if that works for you.

haha worrying isnt it...
after reinstallation of windows no drivers for blutooth , wireless quite often modem and same vga,
windows by default does not install because need specific software ...(drivers)
what you need to do is first of all find out what wifi it is ; like wlan400 e.g.
you then need to download and install the driver for it .as soon as the driver is present windows will detect and install device,
look in device manager for devices with no drivers intalled.
same precedure for each device.
if drivers installed device is looking for wifi manager which is the software package for wifi.
you can goto control panel open administrative tools select sevices and scroll to wireless zero config and press start.
this will then use windows settings.done
What I ask myself is, If sound and wireless are not working - what else might not be ok until you find out later, when you have documents and applications installed?
I would reset the R40 to factory settings right away. Hopefully that person hasn't removed the hidden partition... You can check that by going into your Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer->Manage->Disk Management) and see if you see a Fat32 partition usually called "ServiceV001".
Restart your notebook and hit the blue button at the ThinkPad splash screen. A wizzard will lead you through the process.
Rescue and recovery will restore your laptop to factory state. It has
an image of their default installation with all the software,
settings, and drivers.
After you're done, you have to update the drivers to the newest versions. Look in you start menu and you will see an entry called either "IBM" or "ThinkPad" with a sub-menu that contains the software to update your computer.
If you want to manually update your drivers, go here, fill out the form and follow the prompts. (You will find the necessary information on the sticker on the bottom of your laptop). It will get you to the right page.
If you have any questions, come back here and leave a comment. I am happy to help!
is the windows cd for ibm specifically? if not then you will need: a sound card driver (optional) a graphics card driver (optional) a cd rom driver (maybe) drivers for usb ports (optional) and any other drives/ input devices on your laptop will need drivers. when formatting bear this in mind. All data will be lost! proceed knowingly and with caution. one mess up will land you in problems up to your shoulders! i recommend finding out how to do it safely
It can be that the sound card driver is not properly installed. You may check that on the Device Manager of your laptop. If it's not properly installed, it needs to be uninstalled from the Device Manager and reinstall it by using the driver installation CD that came with your laptop or you may download it on this link.
your system may be designed this way. But you can refer to its manuals or online support to find out whether your PC really supports audio.
Another thing is that the socket in your laptop may have lost its connection to the motherboard.
But first thing you should check is that whether your operating system detects any new hardware. If yes just find the driver for it.
You can download drivers from the manufacturer's website.
