If you can get your hands on a Windows XP cd, it will partition and format the drive for you allowing you to install from scratch. You would then just plug in the license key from the sticker on your laptop. As far as the recovery disk on the original CD, there might be an option on bootup that would have you push an F key to access it. Or you can usually order them online. It's not too hard to get the drivers you need from online so I would just go with any XP disk you can get your hands on. You'll be using your own license so you can even borrow one.

SOURCE: IBM T30
Solution: I use Ubuntu Linux on Thinkpad T series and also use Audacity for recording. Linux user for 10 years. No viruses, no time spent with virus protection. Not perfect, but my set-up stomps!!! I have burned up cpu's, outboard cdrw, I have used the machine extensively and for a billion hours. Linux / IBM Thinkpad is likely where I will stay. My friend bought an R series and counldn't stand it, he went with a T61. Thing weighs 25 pounds but he is happy with the performance. Good luck. PS I just broke the line out jack on my T31 because I use it soooo much. I think I will go with a USB audio device since I move the machine to different sound and video systems at home. I have three different locations where I work or play audio or movies. The headphone jack is weakness. I probably fell asleep with the machine on my lap and maybe it fell off and sprung the jack because I almost always use the line-out to go a Big Stomping HiFi Loud Audio System. -my house sounds like a Rave Party when I playback music on my T30. :-)

Many lockups are caused by incorrect (wrong kind or too much) or faulty memory modules. If you are comfortable doing so, open the memory door on the bottom (most likely) of the PC after first unplugging the PC and removing the main battery. Verify, if you can, that the memory is correct for PC. If the modules don't specifically say what type and speed they are, do a search on any numbers on labels. Go to www.crucial.com and use the memory finder on the left side of the page. If the memory you have is the correct type, try the following: If there are two modules, remove one, then try your XP install again. If it crashes, reinstall the removed module, and remove the other one. If either XP install works, the removed module is faulty. Replace it. If it still crashes, try to borrow some proper memory from someone. If all of this still doesn't work, it could be the hard drive and NOT the memory. In this case, about the only thing you can do is borrow a copy of a bootable CD-ROM based program that can check your hard drive. Many hard drive manufacturers have something like this.

here is the sound driver you need...but remember that the problem might be from another point..anyway the silly stuff with sp3 and sp2 doesnt matter ...cause the sound driver its the same for all XP operating system ...sometimes its the same for vista too ...only in special cases need another ..
so ..download ...and after you remove from the system all the other drivers...( look into add remove programs from control panel ) I mean all other tries and any unfit drivers that ya might tried..restart ..run this one ...and it willwork ...
