Received computer to sell in the Op Shop I help manage. I replaced XP Professional, non genuine installed in Laos with genuine. Used to play DVDs. Now no sound otherwise OK on CD and DVD after upgrading from IBM. Have not used a registry cleaner as computer is too slow to read my flash drive and cannot seem to read it from a CD I made. Any ideas?? Neil Wildey

Re: Thinkpad 2647 No sound on CD or DVD
Call IBM/Lenovo. For about $60, they will provide a complete set of "Recovery CDs" for the ThinkPad. That software will include a DVD-player and the correct sound-drivers.
Or, check IBM's "support" web-site -- you may be able to download the correct drivers.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi there, Power on, when you see the IBM logo, press F12 once to load the boot menu options, provided that you already have an Operating System CD / DVD in the drive, which should allow you to format your HDD.
There can me many solutions, 1. first one and the most possible problem is the malfunctioning of the drivers.to solve this plz uninstall ur DVD ROM drivers from the driver manager and then restsrt it, when you will restart the system it will automatically say that new hardware has been fonded and drivers will be installed automatically just wait for that.Restart again, and u will find it runnig.
2. might be lens of it is cracked, dusty so check tht.
3. Might be u have denied it from reading through BIOS.
4 Also check that you have not taken the aceess rights of users from reading CD/DVDs
This could very well be a serious matter. Start by removing the memory, and trying it with each chip one at a time in each slot. The memory and battery are the only two non serious things that could cause this. If this doesn't work, then the problem is going to be with the power management system on the motherboard. This is a very common problem with these machines. You can have it professionally diagnosed, but I can almost guarantee you they will tell you motherboard replacement. Replacing the motherboard is considerably cheaper than trying to have the power management system repaired.
