I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

awah, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Considering the age of that laptop and the GPU that is in it (ATI Mobility 9600 or similar), the best you're going to get for it is the last XP driver as there are not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for it. Best to go to IBM/Lenovo and get the XP driver for it. It may take using,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W520 running Windows 10 x64 bit and would like to use the Bluetooth. Unfortunately, there is currently only a Microsoft Generic Driver installed and it won't find any of my Bluetooth devices. I would like to download a driver that will actually work and so I went to the Lenovo website to find a working driver. However, apparently there are no bluetooth drivers that are compatible with Windows 10 and this laptop. So how am I supposed to be able to use my laptop with bluetooth? Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi - I read through these forums and see a lot of people have problems updating to the latest Windows 10 version (1709) - even on newer models. I was wondering who has the oldest Thinkpad/Lenovo model running this latest version of Windows 10 - fully functioning. Myself, I have a Thinkpad T43 from 2005 running Windows 1709 great - everything is working but of course it is not fast!

Hi guys, greetings from Bulgaria! I have an old ThinkPad 600e that I'd like to use for some "retro" computing - DOS 6.22, Windows 3.1, Borland Pascal, TASM... All my old software! It's a huge fun! Since my laptop has no floppy drive and the video driver provided for the Neomagic MagicMedia256AV video adapter is ONLY in the form of a self restoring floppy image (no way to extract the files other than writing the image to a FD. No luck under VirtualBox either.) I am looking for the Windows 3.1 drivers in a ZIP form or any ideas how to extract the files.  It is the same story with the other driver disks, but that's the driver I need the most! Thanks.Ivo

To Whom it may concern, I recently replaced my ThinkPad T60p HD with a 240GB SSD and installed Windows 10 32bit on it. New life for the old reliable machine and it works rather well. However, after a few days, ethernet stopped working. System diagnostics indicate the hardware is working properly, so before I go performing more extensive hardware tests, I figured I should download the T60p specific drivers. Can any one point me a place where I can find the drivers? BTW, I have already looked, but have been unable to find them. Regards, Jean-Pierre P.S. I am using wireless to post this, but I have excellent ethernet, and would rather use that. Thank you.

A:Downloading ThinkPad T60p Windows 10 32 bit driver...

Hi,
 
I don't have a direct answer for you.  Not sure you're going to find Windows 10 drivers for a machine of that vintage unless direct from the ethernet chip vendor (Intel) and probably not then...
 
Since it worked for a time and failed I Wonder if you've been bitten by 10's nasty habit of updating drivers whether you like it or not.
 
Anything in update history?  Is there a driver roll-back option for the NIC via Device Manager?  If so, does it help?
 
If the above is what happened, it's going to be a challenge to get 10 to leave the working driver alone.  Are you running STD or Pro?

I just updated my ThinkPad S431 to Windows 10 but I can't find a wireless driver for it, including on the Lenovo website.  Does anyone know where I can find a driver?  Is Lenovo going to release one soon? My network adapter is the Broadcom '2x2 11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter'.

A:ThinkPad S431 Windows 10 Wireless Driver

Hi, welcome to the forum.
 
You are right, I searched the Thinkpad S431 site and I didn't find any Broadcom wireless driver (seems that there are some other models with the Intel driver).
 
Can you check on the Window Device Manager the Hardware ID  of your wireless adapter? Sometimes with the HardwareID it gets easier to find the driver on Google.
 
The other things that I use (that is not officially supported by Lenovo) is DriverEasy. It offers a free, decent enought, way to recognize drivers against its database and show you some update versions of your drivers. The free version also allow you to download the driver (in a slow way).
 
Check it out to see if it gives you some hints.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad E550 running Windows 10 having been updated automatically from Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (initial and anniversary).  I cannot get Skype to use the integrated webcam. That is not the issue. Discussions of that said to make sure the video drivers were up-to-date. There have been no non-automatic updates of Lenovo software since its purchase in early 2015. I used Lenovo's utility to identify the system as 20DFCTO1WW. Just about everything looks out of date, so much so I wonder if I am looking at the drivers for the right system though it agrees with the solution center's showing of model and serial number. I am familiar with computers, byut I am not familiar with how Lenovo does things. Multiple questions: 1) The current drivers for the integrated camera are RealTek 6.2.9200.10282 (7/11/2014), but the Lenovo site shows version 6.5.717 (6/19/2016 for Liteon) and Version 10.0.10240.11135 (Bison/Chicony). Is this the same device.2) Is there a suggested sequence for applying multiple updates?3) The Lenovo page has an option "Let Lenovo update your system". Is this safe? Thanks

The trackpad drivers will not install with the latest 10 build version. you can only move the cursor with the trackpad, gestures and buttons do not work. I am going to give up on windows 10 if I can not find a solution fast. Phone support has been all but worthless from lenovo. This machine is only out of warranty for 3 months, I find it kind of silly that you can get no phone help when you tell them its a driver issue and all your asking is will there be an update for the driver or should I just give up. Why not have a way for techs to get this information to the department that could fix this instead of dismissing me as a customer who is out of warranty. I find it ridicoulous that windows updates cause drivers to fail and how microsoft forces windows 10 and its customers to use windows 10. If lenovo is not going to support windows 10 on older machines they should have a bulletin about it so that users dont get frustrated about the expierence. I have attached a pic of the failed driver install?

Hi Forgany,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
What you can do is uninstall all the Bluetooth application and drivers which you have installed currently and then download and install ThinkVantage system update utility. After the installation restart the system and run the application, this will search for the entire required latest driver for your system.
 
Hope this helps.

I'm running VirtualBox that is running XP on windows 7. The reason to need to run windows XP is I am using a film scanner in which I can't find a proper software or driver for Windows 7. The problem is the scanner (a Nikon Super CoolScan 8000-ED) works on FireWire 1394. I have a PCIe FireWire card installed, but it is not detected on the virtual windows xp machine. Is there a way to detect the PCIe FireWire card in the virtual machine? I'm not sure this is even possible.

If not, is it possible to install an XP driver to work with Windows 7. I can run the scanning software in compatibility mode, but without the driver for the scanner, the software won't detect it.

Are there any other options other than just getting an old PC and installing XP to it?

A:Running PCIe on VirtualBox or installing an XP driver on windows 7

The thing about a virtual machine is that it uses virtual hardware. Most of your real hardware is unknown and unknowable to the client OS and applications. Modern virtual machines can access USB drives and know something about your real video system. But accessing a scanner using FireWire is another matter. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

Using an XP driver on Windows 7? That is within the realm of the possible but not very likely.

I have an old scanner purchased for Windows 98 and later found a driver that worked with Windows 2000. But I never found a driver that worked with XP and never even tried with Windows 7. I have an old computer running Windows 2000 when I need the scanner.

My IBM Lenovo ThinkPad T43 (model 1871), running XP Pro (sp3 build 2600), fails to successfully write a CD-R in my DVD/CD-RW drive (Toshiba SD-R9012). The disk still appears blank after the write attempt, but is apparently not even if the system thinks it is. A brand new blank CD-R will go through the whole routine of attempting to write an ISO file to disk using ImgBurn 2.5.4.0 but fails on the verify saying that layouts do not match. That disk will still register as empty to the system, but further attempts to write to it end up with an I/O error occuring at the 36% complete point. I did get a blank CD-RW to successfully write using the software provided by Numus Diskbuilder (www.user-guides.co.uk), but that uses their software to complete the operation. Also, the DVD/CD-RW drive passes all tests run by the ThinkPad testing software (which calls itself PC Doctor 2.0 but is especially configured to test ThinkPads) that I downloaded using Numun Diskbuilder from that website. I have also tried using RecordNow! version 7 (Sonic) to try to write an ISO file to disk, but it fails too, and that software as well as ImgBurn 2.5.4.0 seem to have problems running on my system. I know this is a great deal to digest all at once, but if someone could help me figure out why my system will not write CDs I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi

I just picked up a IBM Thinkpad T-40 on Ebay and it's in flawless condition and it came with XP (COA) and a list of many downloads. The problem is that it's running very slow.
At home l have DSL but l hooked it up to dial up on a different line to download Avast and it's been running for 3 hrs and only downloaded 34%. While watching the window telling me how much is downloading it seems that for every 6 minutes the clock in the window moves by 1 minute. My IBM Thinkpad 600x seems to be running on DSL compared to it.

Any ideas, it also takes 4/5 minutes after l turn on the T-40 for the XP page to load.

The other day I turned on my computer (after it had been off for about a week) and it would not boot up--I received a "critical low battery" error. The thing is, caccu.nl ,there was no battery in the machine. I popped in a long-expired battery to see what would happen and the computer would not even turn on.I have ruled out the A/C adapter--I have another laptop of the same model which boots up just fine with either adapter, but this one will not boot with either.I finally got the machine to boot up by popping in the battery at a strategic moment just before the error appears. It works fine as long as I leave it running, but Windows thinks that it is running from the battery ("Current Power Source: Batteries - Total Battery Power Remaining: Unknown") and the computer dies instantly if I remove the battery.I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the battery in Device Manager to no avail. Is there anything else I can do, or do I need to make the backup laptop my primary?

A:Thinkpad A30 thinks it's running on battery

Welcome to the forum!
 
Sounds to me like your A30 has developed a motherboard problem.
 
Try the old trick:
 
Remove the battery, unplug the power adapter, hard and media drives.
 
Press the "power" button ten times in a row holding it down for ten seconds each time and thirty seconds the last time around.
 
Plug the adapter - but nothing else - back in and try to power on.
 
Let us know how it goes.

Hello,

I've just upgraded my Toshiba Satellite A70 laptop computer to Microsoft Windows Vista and the display driver I had previously is no longer supported. Is anyone able to help me find an updated replacement for the device driver? I'm not 100% sure on what the video card is (as far as I am aware, it is the standard device that is packaged with this model laptop).

If anyone can help me here, I would greatly appreciate it!

Just bought an Inspiron 5759 from Dell Canada.
 Touchpad is very squirrelly - move around and it randomly perceives a click hence starts moving or invoking stuff.  Try to click left or right button (bottom left or right of touchpad) and the cursor moves so I can click on wrong thing easily.  Looked for Touchpad settings under Control Panel Mouse.  Nothing there specific to touchpad - just generic mouse settings.  Looked in Device Manager - Mouse and Pointing Devices - see HIID compliant mouse and PS2 compatible mouse.   Driver for either is from Microsoft dated 2006.  
Ok - load newest driver from dell.com.  Claims it installs ok - wrong.  The Dev Mgr shows same Microsoft drivers.  Manually force driver to Synaptics - Dell TouchPad.  Looks like it succeeds.  Now, Dev Mgr shows two mouse devices: Dell Touchpad and PS2 Compatible mouse.  Try control panel - Mouse.  Now I see a Dell Touchpad tab but the only field - Change Dell Touchpad settings - does nothing.
Spent 6 hours trying to get help from Dell Support - worst experience with any support organisation (other than HP who managed to toast a notebook via remote control while trying to install a printer driver - never did work.)  Absolutely no improvement in situation.  Four times put on hold and line drops.  Considering strongly returning the notebook.
Went to BestBuy and looked at 8 Inspiron  and XPS computers on demo.  Not a sin... Read more

A:Inspiron and XPS laptops running Windows 10 cannot install Dell/Synaptics Touchpad driver

With Win 10, touchpad drivers are found in the Win 10 Settings, selected in the Start Menu. In addition, many newer laptops are using a Precision touchpad, a Microsoft inspired pad. The driver is incorporated in Windows itself, and a regular driver will not work. This is why you don't see anything in the "old" Windows Control Panel app or in the Device Manager.

I just updated one of my users Lenovo Yoga 460, by running all the updates available. After the bios update completed, it went on to windows 10. After doing an additional reboot without running any further updates, it no longer boots at all. screen remains black, but the i in Thinkpad lights up. It never moves on from there. I have had 5 or 6 occurences of 460 laptops in the company being unable to boot in the last 2 weeks, and getting the same issue with the logo lighting up, but no further response. So far i have reported them all in as motherboard failure, but this starts me wondering: do any of you notice this same issue within the last few weeks? Running updates from Lenovo system update, and then it stops like that?If there is a fault with the bios or similar updates, it could be a potential crisis.Combined with a severe lack of motherboards for that model (for the second time since it was released) in Norway, it is a bad time to get these issues. On eof the reported laptops was able to boot again after using the reset button, but these others have not.

My laptop has no sound. I need to know where I can get the sound driver for an IBM Thinkpad T42.
Thanks!
 

A:Sound Driver for IBM Thinkpad T42

ibm / lenova has a very easy site to find info on, and, in that YOU have the info needed,
start with this:

Finding my product number (machine type / model or part number) and serial number

User's guides and manuals

Support & downloads

download them then 'burn' them to a cd for backup, 'cause if you needed them once, you will need them again
