You maybe able to get the video driver from IBM/Lenovo WEB site.

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).

    According to IBM/Lenovo the T41 uses either a ATI Radeon 7500 or 9000 or FireGL T2 graphics card.

    You maybe able to get a Windows 7 graphics driver from the ATI WEB site if you cannot get one from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site.

    Unfortunately you cannot change the graphic card in the T41 because the graphics chip/card is built-in on the motherboard and there is no expansion slot for add-on cards.

Please i nedd a help

Hello, go to the website, and type in your model number. The page will display all the hardware. Choose the audio, and download it to your desktop. Once finished execute it, and it will go to your main drive,(mine is C:\drivers\win folder). Now open up control panel, go to systems, hardware tab, and device manager. Right click on the audio, and click update driver. The wizard will open, and ask if you want to connect to the internet, choose not this time, and next. The next windows that pops up, make sure you choose install from a specific location, then click on browse, and go to the drive where the driver is installed. This shouls sodve your problem. The same goes for the ethernet, video, modem, and many other deivces. I hope this helps.
