Your hard disk in all likelihood is just a single partitioned hard drive so it gives c and d. From your description, it probably need replacing, just replace the harddrive and buy a usb cd/dvd drive

Driver video controler type 2652


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 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).

IBM Thinkpad Model 2652 - Will not start up. It says "Cannot find OS". Windows XP Professional is the Operating System that I have running on it. Is there anywhere that I can get a Recovery...


you can get recovery disks from http://www.bootdisk.com/ although if it's just started saying that you have no OS and you are sure you didn't wipe the machine yourself, i think you might have a failing HDD, especially as its such an old model.

Does IBM THINKPAD type 2652 1.8GHs has wifi cards


This particular model don't have a built in wireless card on it , it only has a Integrated Network Card for wired connection .

So if you want to make this laptop work wireless you need to get a wireless adapter like this adapter from Linksys WPC54G or WUSB54GC so this laptop can be use wirelessly.
