The software for your version of Lenova Thinkpad drivers and utilities are available free of charge from the Lenova website.
First check the model of your r40e. The link to the drivers which which model to download from is at the bottom of the email.
Locating Your IBM Lenovo Model NumberThe location of the label containing the model number of your machine can be found in various different places, as shown below. You are looking for either the "Type", the P/N (product number), or the Model on the label, do not use the S/N (serial number) information.
ThinkPad - The label can generally be found on the bottom of the machine.
The label typically looks like one of the following pictures:
For this type of label, the TYPE is the Model Number.
For this type of label, the Model is the Model Number.
For this type of label, the P/N is the Model Number. P/N: 430197X S/N: 0800783
If u have genuine Operating System preloaded in your laptop, then turn back your laptop you can find the serial number pasted on it. If you don't have the genuine OS preloaded then you can find the serial number on the back side of the CD Cover label.
Unfortunately the only way to get a recovery for any preloaded system is to contact the manufactuer of the product. IE if the unit is a Compaq you can contact Hewlett-Packard, must be the current company that owns the model and build. Compaq is now part of HP is the only reason for the example.
They will ask your model and serial. new discs may cost you to obtain but serial will give them the preloaded software information.
Outside of recovery discs, secondary option. Purchase a new operating system. expensive but does work as well.
Hope this helps.
There is no easy answer for this type of question, unfortunately. The best I can do is offer some advice. While installing XP is always possible, and most of the time preferred by the user, not all of the hardware will work every time with every computer. That's just a disclaimer.

May your printer doesn't fit to your operating system because Windows Vista is one of the complicated OS and hard to find installer or software to fit it in. Try to Replace your operating system that same as your brother have. maybe it can fix your problem!
