Question about IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC

1 Answer

No audio or sporadic audio

The audio on the ibm tp x41 is not working all of a sudden. i uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers for the soundmax audio but no results. Is this due to some spyware? I remvoved spyware using Ad Aware but still the problem persists. But sometimes the audio comes on for a few minutes by itself! I also did the audio test but no sounds.

I installed win xp sp2 professional and I can't efind the driver to enable the touch again. please help me. which tool should I install to get it again. thanks alot.

The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

IBM x41 1866-9GU does not have an audio device (sound card) installed. I need to find the right one that will work with this laptop and get it ordered and delivered. Do you know which model I need?

Are you certain it is not just a driver issue? If the right audio driver is not installed, the errors will also indicate that there is "no audio device installed".

More info here:

If you have the original CD< you can look for the audio drivers there. If not, check the IBM support website, or use a driver finder program to auto-detect and download the right driver.

Before you can use the assigned X41 Wireless ON/OFF key and other hot keys, you need to load the appropriate and specific Hotkey driver for your X41 and Operating system (XP, W2000, VISTA or W7):
