    jay,

    I have a common 9 pin serial.
    i have a programming cable for programming 2-way
    radios, I can do a com test in dos, nothing.
    I can boot up to win98se and it works, the problem is
    only some of the radios work in win98se, I need to use
    dos for most of them.
    I did format the drive, so I thot there might be a specific
    driver for Dos., I tried updating the Bios, got files from lenovo,
    it said "no update needed", would not let me try.
    thanks for help.

Is it a plain 9pin serial port?

You should have no problems there, if you are using a USB, you DO have issues.

What do you want to plug in?

Cheers,

Sound card on IBM R50 THINKPAD


Your sound card is "SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio".The chipset manufacturer name is "SoundMax".It's very hard to define what sound comes with any Notebook if the driver is not installed.We too search the Internet according to the Notebook company,model,series etc.

If you need the driver,here is the download link

http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/1ga241ww.exe

Your Sound card support only Windows XP, 2000, 98SE.

USB doesn't work


do have the driver for the IBM? then use it. if you don't, then what about serial port or RS232. get a converter that is serial to usb converter with the driver will allow you to use your usb through serial port.

What Is The Max RAM Limit for a IBM ThinkPad 380XD?


From reviewing the manufacturers manual for that unit, I would have to agree that the maximum possible expansion memory you can install is 96mb. Here is the link to their users guide (pdf).

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/38xhmm.pdf

quote:

"Memory (Option) 2635-8xx/9xx/Axx/Bxx
Ÿ 8MB and 16MB 70ns EDO DIMM
card
Ÿ 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB EDO
DIMM card (max. 96MB)"

There you have it. Although unless you are able to find that specification of memory for cheap online, I would say it's not really worth it to invest in older ram with such slow bus speeds unless you definitely need it. Hope that helps.

You don't say what OS you run, but have you tried reinstalling your audio files? This will probably fix your problem.
If you run Windows XP, 2000 or 98SE, this link will download the correct drivers :
