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).
