Ibm thinkpad audio drives G40 2384

You can get the driver from the computer manufacturer's website. If you want all drivers covered and updated, then you can install an automatic driver updater like RadarSync. You don't have to go to different websites to find the different drivers because the software will do all the work for you.

I hope this helps!

I installed win XP over the old win XP operating system , when completed, everything worked except the (ACCESS IBM) and volume control BUTTONS.pressing them gets no responce at all

You need to install the drivers for those. Xp will try to use the existing driver if it can or use drivers that it comes with. Certain functions such as hot button or other hardware specific stuff will need the driver from the manufactuers web site.

This is the download and support page for the G40.
You should save that off in case you need something else. You may find that some things will not work or work as well if you don;t use the IBM/Lenovo driver versions. I think what you need are the hotbutton drivers and mayb keyboard customizer. Those are in the system utilities section. Download, save to desktop or other place and run them to install.

My ibm thinkpad G40 wont turn on

Check the power source, plug it into the wall don't try to just run off the battery. If it still does not turn on plugged into a working outlet the power supply needs to be replaced.
