Hi, for a specific driver I will need to know your operating system. But you could try the Realtrek AC'97 sound driver, its free to download from a google search.

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).

I DONT HAVE SOUND ( AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE IS NOT INSTALLED)


Check out either the audio drivers (start > settings > control panel > system > hardware > device manager >check for exclamation mark in front of the audio device) and update if nessersary,
Or the audio mixer levels from the audio related icon at the taskbar. In case it's missing go start > settings > control panel >sound devices > mark the checkbox "volume icon at the taskbar"

After the above you will be able to hear audio from your computer but in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Driver audio


o check, click windows start button, point to computer, click manage, then look for device manager. If you see an exclamation or "x" mark on your audio device this means that your audio driver is not properly installed.

Uninstall the audio driver then re-intall it again. visit www.hp.com/support and look for your audio driver if you dont have the cd installer.

Button for sound on my laptop dont work


The most likely causes for this is:
External Speakers not turned on. Turn them on...
Driver for the sound device isn't installed: If you see the little speaker icon down the bottom right hand corner of your screen (near the clock), your sound card device driver is working well.
If it is not visable, the sound card device driver may or may not be working. Go into the start button, select settings (if available), then control panel, Sounds and Audio Devices.
Select the Audio tab Ensure that you have a 'default device' set.
If you get any errors when going into the sound and audio devices tab stating that you have no audio devices installed, then its most likely a driver issue. In this case, refer to your local computer shop to have the audio drivers installed.

Driver for the keyboard sound function not installed or not running. Solution: Reboot then test it. Reinstall the driver, test it.
