IBM Thinkpad 570E motherboard

I've lost some features, among which are sound. The hardware isn't faulty, so I must reinstall the motherboard. What is the exact model of the motherboard, and where can I get an installation disc?

Once you install the OS, you can go to Lenovo for the drivers:

NO SOUND


Do you have the volume turned up? Make sure you don't have the volume muted.

You can always reinstall your audio drivers.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "IBMSupport" or "Lenovo Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

My IBM thinkpad turns off when i insert my usb internet connection into the usb slot and then wont turn on for a day or 2. What could this be?


It sounds like some sort of power drain or short on the motherboard. I recently made a repair job on a T41,casing on an IBM thinkpad T40 AND T41`S are very week.
My advice to you would be reinstall windows and see if it does it again,If it doesn`t then you will know for sure that it had something to do with windows.IF it still does after a clean installation of windows then its clearly a hardware fault.
*Hardware fault could be you`re power supply not giving enough juice(unlikely) *Motherboard faulty/Or Shorting somewere.If thats the case then a refurbished motherboard would do the trick.

No sound from my IBM Laptop


Hi, I suggest you to uninstall the sound driver you ve got from control panel, add/remove programs. Then download the uptodate driver from IBM support page: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42358.html Reinstall it, should work, if not then you might consider to have an hardware issue, in this case I suggest you to contact the IBM support if still under warranty to get a replacement, hardware failure are covered by warranty terms. Thanks and have a nice day J-

I loaded a new, formatted IDE hard drive into an


Hello,
If IDE drives are hooked to the same controller one must be configured in BIOS as Master, and the second as slave.
If there is only one drive, it should be set as master: Two drives on two different controller must be both defined as master.

Hope it helps.

I need to format an HDD for an IBM thinkpad 570e that came without one, and from what a lot of people say, it won't take windows xp pro. I don't have any other OS, so has anyone tried to do this...


Before formatting the drive ....
you will need to save your drivers on a cd/dvd disk if you dont have the original disks

Formatting the drive should be straight forward,
remove it from your machine and take it to another computer,
your IBM Thinkpad should be staight forward to reinstall even without taking your drive to another computer,I found this step easier tho....
after formatting this drive you could just insert to your machine and then reload your software from the beginning providing you have your disks,

You might have a password locked hard drive and or your bios may be locked also ,in this case replace the drive after which your new os install should give you access and functionality,
update your drivers on the internet and SP2 updates will give you hi speed usb 2.0 functionalilty.....

Good luck with the formatting,if you need help let me know,
have a great day

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

IBM 570E Notebook password locked


The olny way to clear a password is to take out the CMOS battery and rejump some jumper settings on the motherboard.  In a laptop, this can be very tedious and difficult.  I would suggest unless you have extensive knowledge in taking these apart, take it in to a repair shop and have them do it.  I don't know where you live at, but around this area I charge aobut 25-40 bucks for a laptop to reset, depending on the model.  Older models are a little cheaper because they are easier to get at.  You could attempt it yourself, but please do not try this unless you are very comfortable with what you are doing as you could render the laptop into a giant paperweight.

IBM ThinkPad 570E Internet Problem


This is going to be with the machine, yes, too old. These machines take a 16 bit wireless card which is almost impossible to find since they stopped making them 6 or 7 years ago, and 16 bit cards were never produced by cellular providers, so a cellular card is completely out of the equation. The cards on the market today are a 32 bit card. I know you're trying to go wireless, but if you want to connect to high speed, you can use a bus port ethernet card that will allow you to plug an ethernet cable into the machine.
