IBM T40 thinkpad

Sir,
when I open a Windows MP3 Player and play a mp3 file then it says, "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly." Pls help me out to tackle this problem. from which web site should I download the sound device?

    Can you specify your sound device? Go to Start->Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices, and click on the Hardware tab.

It can be that the sound card driver is not properly installed. You may check that on the Device Manager of your laptop. If it's not properly installed, it needs to be uninstalled from the Device Manager and reinstall it by using the driver installation CD that came with your laptop or you may download it on this link.

The link already contains the instructions on how to install the driver of the adapter.

Unable download music from computer to a my mp3 player


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

IBM ThinkPad T40: the problem is the following Modem HSP56 MR( Intel) doesnot work, Other devices:Nework Controller and unknown device doesn't work


Windows is missing the "device-drivers" for your network adapter and your modem.

On a different computer, access IBM's ThinkPad web-site, and download those device-drivers for your T40. Copy the device-drivers to either a CD-writable or to a USB memory-stick.

Move the media to your T40, and install from that removable media.

Are you referring to the Atmel EEPROM 24RF08 chip?
If so, in the T40 Thinkpad it is under the touchpad, I suspect on the T43 in may also in the same location.

You don't say what OS you run, but have you tried reinstalling your audio files? This will probably fix your problem.
If you run Windows XP, 2000 or 98SE, this link will download the correct drivers :
