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: -
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
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).

Brand new, has never worked, fans run, first time installed ran the I Will cd that went fine then nothing


Hi ;) Sound like you got a bad driver file loaded can you go in in safe mode or when the computer first starts up in WindowsXP hold down the F8 key to go to the startup list and pick VGA mode and that will load with default video drivers.

My speakers worked , until i reformatted my windows XP computer. now the speakers are not being detected. the lights are on but nothing is working . please help


Hi, you need to check for problems with your sound driver. To do this go to start, control panal, system, then hardware and finally device manager. If there is a problem your audio device will be highlighted with a yellow ?. You will need to down load and install the latest sound driver for your system. If you are not sure which one; you can do a google search, or try the Realtek AC'97 sound driver, which is free to down load from a google search.
Hope this helps.

When I plug in my USB cord into my computer nothing happens and how do I down load my photos onto the computer this way? I don't have a memory card in my phone but I just want to download them directly...


Yes it should ask you for that device to install and also asks you for the drivers.
You didn't mention you phone, even though google your cell "phone's PC SUITE download", it will be available at the vendor's site, free of cost install it and it will become so easy for you as 123.

AcerPower 1000 -- VERY slow loading


Your potential problem might be a virus. If you are having an updated anti-virus software and are running regular scans and found nothing, Then this might be the problem, while making the system get restored, the frequent problem is that, xp doesn't load the drivers which you installed for your system and it loads its own drives (which sometimes won't go with your devices). Try installing the drivers (especially display and motherboard drivers). If this doesn't work, I better suggest that you do a complete format of the system and install windows xp afresh.. Then there should be no problem. These're the possible solutions which i can infer from the details you've given..

Regards..

Printer won't print


vista doesn't like non-microsoft software. It will tell you that the lexmark software is not supported. Click install anyway. Do this before plugging in the printer or vista will assign it's own driver. Which wont work. Then go into the control panel and select the lexmark as the default printer

Scanner


http://www.mustek.com/supportdrivers.asp...

Make sure you follow the instructions listed on the page; pay particular attention to the part about unplugging the scanner from the computer before installing the software.

This is with out your cd above, but if ya want to re-down load with your CD again :

You have to go in to add and remove programs and remove all ready what u have down loaded on your computer for the scanner. Mkae sure u look for the programas pertaining to the scanner and re-move and than re-boot the computer and start all over again with your cd , let it run its course Should be fine now for ya.
