First, go in and remove the service pack 3. This sp has done nothing but create conflicts with operating systems and software. You don't need it. Then go into the device manager and uninstall the sound drivers and reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you should be good to go.

    Oh, one more thing. You may need to readjust the sound settings and profile after this.

I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD T42, IT HAS WINDOWS PRODUCT KEY AT THE BACK, I FORMATED IT AND I WANT TO REINSTALL THE OS BUT I DONT HAVE THE ORIGINAL CD AND ALSO I DONT KNOW WHICH SERVICE PACK WAS IT. CAN I USE ANY...


This T42 was probably installed with Windows XP. Pro. Look at the label it will state which version of XP and on the left hand side of the label you will see a version no. X08 or X10, You can use any Windows XP Pro CD that is the same version that is on the label ie. X08 or X10.
The latest Service pack for XP is SP3.

Thinkpad T41 with XP-sp3: No sound / working fine until yesterday


Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.

If you are using windows XP, click Start, right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager.

Check if your Sound device is installed. If not, download and install the driver at http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download

enter your laptop model found on the bottom.

After re-installed my t42 2373K1U with windows XP SP3, the internal wireless network controller is no longer working. I have tried to download several drivers from Lenovo website but they all failed to...


When you download the T40 device drivers, they need to be the XP versions.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.

VGA port problem


That could be a video card driver issue. It seems that when the projector is connected, windows detects it a create another screen using up more memory. Try download a latest video card driver for your laptop http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1rd635ww.exe this is for Windows 200/XP for the IBM Thinkpad T42. If that doesn't work then you should also try updating your operating system. Hope that helps!
