lenovo 3000 n100 bad xp install - keyboard not working, 9 device drivers missing

Q: lenovo 3000 n100 bad xp install - keyboard not working, 9 device drivers missing

Hi. I was just given a Lenovo 3000 n100 (prod. i.d.# - 97684JU) laptop that had crashed. If I can fix it, it's mine. Yay!

Problem: Keyboard does not work. It has a fresh install of XP with Service pack 2 - which I believe was taken off a disk labelled XP Pro Svc pk 2, w/sata drivers for gateway - key preloaded - which was in dvd drive.

In device manager under other devices there is a list of devices marked as uninstalled drivers -
3 base system devices,
fingerprint sensor,
foxconn bluetooth 2.0 plus EDR,
Network Controller
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

The registered to in properties of My Computer has all the symbols for two lines. I have figured by trial and error that the keyboard is not working. USB keyboard and mouse do work.

I have a XP Pro cd, version 2002, unopened that I can use to reinstall the operating system - however this one I believe is for a compaq/hp pc.

My question: should I download all Lenovo drivers to a flash drive, and do I need anything special during install?

will computer recognize usb keyboard and mouse if i am formatting and reinstalling opsys?

I am thinking that maybe with the disk they used that may be the reason why the keyboard does not work.

Or can I just install the drivers needed from the lenovo site, and then fix the "registered to" and "users" in the registry?

what would be my best bet here?

thanks for the help here.

Can someone help me solve these problems, especially the usb. I been using alot of flash cards and i can't connect them to transfer files.....

A:Nothing but problems with Lenovo n100 3000

You should go to the Lenovo Driver Matrix, to download and install all drivers listed, using the text explanations exactly.
When done properly, your Lenovo 0768-A49 will work just fine.
As a shortcut, you can install the Systems update 3.14 by your model:
. C200
Or you can connect to the Lenovo site and let their system tell you what you need and install it for you.
Basically, you need the Chipset most importantly, being sure your BIOS is up to date.
The Matrix will show you exactly what you need... it can be as many as 35 download installs, depending on your exact model.
Or you can buy the Lenovo WXP Professional disk set by telephone for less than $50 including shipping.

Hi.I've got some problems with my computer. 1. Due to some unexplainable reason, whenever I type something on the keyboard, all my USB ports stop working for the time I'm typing. When I stop typing it takes a few seconds to recognize the USB device currently attached and it starts working again.  2. Another problem is with my sound driver. It's kind of messed up. I can't hear any sounds from the speakers unless I've plugged in headphones. And while they're plugged in I can hear sound from both, the speakers and the headphones. At the moment I've disabled front panel jack detection and I can hear sound from the speakers without having to plug anything in, although when I do, I don't hear sound from the headphones, but still from the speakers. 3. I haven't been able to find any working drivers for my SD card reader. 4. The driver for the fingerprint reader does not work. The device manager shows that I have AuthenTec AES2501A installed but when going to Biometric devices in the control panel, it says that Windows didn't find any biometric devices. 5. I've been unable to get my bluetooth device to work. I've tried adding a new device and it can't find any, even when I have several working near the comupter. Also, trying to see all the devices I have connected to via Bluetooth, the window pops up and never stops loading.

Hi everyone,

I have recently acquired a Lenovo 3000 N100 768-BXG and like many people with the N100 have massive USB problems.

Now I have read up and discovered that this is a problem with the BIOS which seems to affect all the available BIOS except the 1.08 version for machines preloaded with Vista - well I have the 2.06 BIOS for machines preloaded for XP.

I have read that I can flash the BIOS to an earlier version designed for the C200 (specifically that contained in the 63af02us.exe update, DL20102A.WPH) which is I think the 1.02 BIOS - then I can reboot and it will then allow me to flash to the fixed (ie: USB working properly!) 1.08 BIOS.

Now for the meat of the question: I have installed Win7 on the laptop as it came with no HDD thus no recovery partition etc. Do I have to wipe this install and install WinXP Pro in order to perform the BIOS flash? Can it be done from Win7 safely or at all?

I have never flashed any BIOS except my router although I am fairly confident that I have read and understood everything required. My problem is that I don't really understand the detail of BIOS and am only able to post this due to scouring other people's posts on this and other forums.

Can anyone out there confirm that I have the process correct, and answer my questions?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me


EDIT: The laptop has no battery at all - I know it is recommended to have a charged battery before BIOS flashing but is it essen... Read more

A:Help resolving USB problem with Lenovo 3000 N100?

If there is a downloadable Windows based bios flashing utility from Lenovo for your model laptop you should be able to use it to flash the bios without much trouble, regardless of the Windows version installed. Don't worry about having no battery installed. Bios flashing should never be done on battery power alone. If the laptop can boot from the CD/DVD you could flash the bios using a CD/DVD image. You will also have an option to back up the current bios to a file. If the bios flashing fails, the laptop may be rendered useless, so no recovery can be attempted

Greetings, This isa free laptop, Lenovo 3000 N100. I bought a power supply for it. It was running a Non-Genuine version of Windows 7 so I formatted and installed Puppy Linux. Problem: The fan runs for a couple of seconds during bootup, then no more. The laptop will shutdown randomly, I assume from overheating but I don't know that. The battery is dead so I pulled it out and am running straight off the power supply. I pulled the fan out and taped (3) 1.5V batteries together, hooked some leads to them and found that the fan runs fine and continuously. I cleaned out all dust found in the air vent. This has not fixed the problem. Something is telling the fan to shut off. Don't know if this is a motherboard problem or what? It is so far a free computer aside from the power supply. Any ideas? Thanks,Doug

A:Lenovo 3000 N100 Fan Runs 2 seconds

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
The fan problem maybe why the computer was free especially if you dumpster dived it.
With the fan wired to the batteries does the computer still shut down randomly?  You could also see if Linux has any apps or software for temperature monitoring to confirm overheating.  If overheating is an issue you should probably renew the thermal paste and see that the heat sink is securely mounted.  Either of those can lead to high temperatures.  If overheating is not an issue it just might be that the computer isn't getting hot enough for the fan to kick in for additional cooling.

Hello community. I am owner of this old laptop. As I am a student i've gained access to free Microsoft software - including Windows 10. I've always used Xp on this laptop before but now i wanted to try out this new OS. The problem is, that everything works fine besides that i have no sound. In audio device tab i only have S/PDIF audio device which generates no sound from speakers(obviously). I have already tried drivers installed from EOL in compatibility mode but with no luck. Any ideas how to fix that?

I have a IBM Lenovo N100 3000 laptop that keeps shutting down at random, it doesnt matter what you do it shuts off when it feels like, what i notice is if it is off for a while it will stay on longer before the first shutdown but once the first shutdown occurs it just keep on doing so as soon as around 5 minutes after bootup.
I thought it was having a heat issue so I opened the section where the fan and processor heatsink is and cooled it manually with an external fan, i actually had my hand on the processor heatsink one of the time when it shut down and it was extremely cool.
I reformatted my hard drive and installed a fresh copy of windows...same problem
I went into BIOS and left it there to see what happen...it shut right off just the same!!!
(I also noticed in the BIOS there is no power management nor temperature readings even though I have ruled out overheating previously I would have loved to see these settings)
so now i'm down to definitely a hardware issue!!
I replaced my memory to see if that was the culprit.....it shuts down just the same!

oops my battery is no good so I wondered if that was the influence so I removed the battery completely and booted it on just AC power...it shuts down just the same!
Could you experts please kindly advice me of what other possible hardware could be causing this problem?
I have tried my best, I really dont know what else to do.

A:IBM Lenovo N100 3000 laptop that keeps shutting down

Sounds like overheating. If the thermal paste has worn and/or is not making proper contact with the CPU heat sink and fan, your computer will overheat and shut down quickly, to prevent damage.

Also, the heatsink WILL appear cold in that case, because proper heat transfer isn't taking place, so the heat doesn't really transfer to the heat sink accordingly thus seeming "cold." If you can, re-apply the thermal paste or have a technician do it for you.

Another thing to do is make sure the fan and heatsink aren't full of lint/dust, etc. That can prevent heat dissipation and cause overheating.

If none of those work, you are looking at a different type of hardware problem, such as a faulty motherboard or CPU.

I have an Lenovo 3000 N100 Notebook, TYPE: 0768-04U which came loaded with Vista operating system. The battery that came with it was DOA so I ordered a new battery from Lenovo which is working fine.

The issue I'm experiencing is as follows:

After using the notebook where everything is working just fine. No devices with any issues, I go through a normal shutdown and leave the notebook off for a day or two with the new battery in (fully charged) and the power cable plugged in.

Upon trying to boot up, the Rescue & Recovery process kicks off automatically and Vista will not boot. However, if I take the battery out and unplug the power chord and leave it sitting for a day or so and then put the battery back in and plug the power chord in, it boots up with Vista with no problems.

Anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this or what to do to remedy this situation?

Despite being plugged into AC power, my Lenovo 3000 N100 shuts down after about one minute. It boots properly but suddenly shuts down. I have not used this laptop much since purchasing it in 2006 and have seldom used it on battery power alone. Any suggestions before I buy a new battery? Maybe I am mistaken, but shouldn't the computer work on AC despite a depleted battery?

My laptop was working fine last summer until the Windows Genuine Advantage kept popping up telling me it wanted to verify if my OS was valid. I tried to shut it down or disable it and windows started to behave strangely to the point that it would not load at all. I purchased the laptop in December 2008 from Micro Center in Houston brand new. I have the sticker on the laptop that tells me the OS is valid.

Lenovo did not ship with the rescue and recovery disks, instead it has a rescue partition. The rescue partition would not restore the laptop. So I tried the rescue and recovery DVD I created. Somehow it did not create the product recovery CDs. When I called Lenovo about this problem, they belittled me and then charged me $50 for the set of Product CDs. I thought my troubles were over, wrong!

After installing the CDs windows almost loaded and then it went to the blue screen of death. This happened a few times. I tried reinstalling the disks and everytime I would receive a different error message, it is missing drivers, it can't locate a file, etc.

Today it returned:
The application or DLL X:minint\system32\umpnpmgr.dll is not a valid Windows image, Please check this against your installation diskette.

Product Recovery could not find file Z:\UBREC.CMD

I called Lenovo and again, no help. I am at a loss. My laptop was fine until the Microsoft Genuine Advantage pop-up kept showing up. And Lenovo is not providing any support for the faulty CDs they sold me.

Hello, this is my first post. I am new member. I also am a very novice/amateur computer user and so I need some help from some pros or anyone that has experienced a similar problem and can help fix my laptop. I have a Lenovo 3000 N100 laptop model number 0768 6EU. About a week ago I updated/downloaded a bunch of software upgrades from Lenovo's website recommended for this computer. Prior to this download I was able to connect to my wireless home network. But after the download of various required/recommended software upgrades it no longer connects to the wireless home network. my other laptops connect so I know that it is not my wireless router. I have tried various things recommended by the ThinkVantage access connection on my computer but I get the following on that: signal strength: 0%, status: disconnected, IP address: not assigned. I also ran the diagnostic tools and it gave me the following: connection status: disconnected, cause: wireless stack initialization failed, error code: 118, recommended action please check the wireless driver installation. I even went to the Intel wireless 3945 abg hardware properties window and pressed the tab to revert back to the prior driver for the wireless card. I would appreciate any help. I know this message/post is long but it is the only way I can explain what is going on

I have this 3000 N100 laptop for over a year now with no problems (except the lousy battery which died in 6 months and I'm running on A/C since then). Last week I started laptop and this shutdown problem started appearing. System would start normally and then would suddenly power itself in 2/3 minutes (most of the times, but sometimes in runs for 2-4 hours before shutting itself down)I checked the fan and processor. Nothing is heating up.I changed processor. Even then it'd go down.I have made the fan DIRECT (always ON) but the system still shuts down.I tried hmonitor but it only reads HDD temprature which is 36-40C - I guess very normal. Now I wonder where the problem may lie. Is it motherboard? What part of board might be getting heat? Or is it actually heat? Or do I need to get certain parts (capacitor, I/C or something) on Motherboard replaced? Any help? Comments? Suggestions?

A:Lenovo G500s Bluetooth Peripheral Device Drivers missing

hi Jens,
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Regarding your concerns:
1. From this link  that hardware ID is pointing to a Bluetooth Hands-free Audio Gateway by Broadcom.
Since you already installed the Bluetooth driver, can you try one of the following:
a. Navigate to the C:\Drivers\Bluetooth\Broadcom and run the setup.exe file to re-install the Broadcom Bluetooth Driver
b. Follow this guide on how to manually install the BTHENUM device driver (point the driver to the  C:\Drivers\Bluetooth\Broadcom folder).
c. Install the WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software
2. If you have a bluetooth headset / speaker that was previously connected before, it's possible that these devices are automatically pairing themselves to the machine everytime you restart. Try to check if installing the Bluetooth driver in problem #1 resolves the issue.

Hi everyone,

I just bought a used Lenovo 3000 N200 (model 0769). When I met the seller he told me that he had lost the installation CD that normally comes with the computer, and that anyway, it was not usefull since he had downgraded from Vista to XP.

I didnt think it could be a problem, but now I'm overwhelmed with problems! I reformated the computer and installed my own personal version of Windows XP (SP2) and found out I couldnt have access to Internet!

I went to the "Device Manager" and found multiple devices marked with a yellow "?". Network controller was part of these missing drivers. So I went on Lenovo website and found a driver page http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67855.html

That did solve my problem with Internet, now it works fine. But I have no audio device and about ten other yellow "?" that will probably soon become very problematic! Things like "Base system device" that I just cant find because there's no details about it!

I dont want any yellow question mark anymore! I want my computer to be 100% focntional!

Anyone can help, give suggestion, put me on a trail or tell me where to look?

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read th isnovel!!



A:Solved: Device manager drivers missing and no install CD

A:3000 N100 PXE Error, won't boot to BIOS

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
I'm not an owner of your model, but in reviewing the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the N100 it notes that you must press the Lenovo Care Button when the computer is powered up.  You will then be presented with a menu from which you can access the BIOS Setup.  Page #104 of the manual will show you the location of the Care Button.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference......
As for clearing the CMOS, it is probably not needed.  If the time and date were cleared and you received a CMOS checksum error then all the information stored in the CMOS was likely cleared  when the battery lost power from sitting unused.
Once you are able to get into the BIOS you should be able to correct the boot order so that you can use the XP boot disc.

I'm having a problem while trying to do a clean install of windows vista home premium. Every time I click install now when it comes up, I can this message "A required cd/ dvd drive device driver is missing, Plug in the cd, dvd... ect with the needed drivers now."

I have a clean never used western Digital Caviar black 1 tb SATA HDD, a gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L Mobo, and a LG multi DVD rewriter, Model GSA H54L.

From my understanding its not the cd/dvd driver it reads the install cd just fine up until then, but the the SATA, Raid drivers or something else that aren't being detected. I've tried messing around with turning the AHCI on and off and switching from legacy to Native Ide ports. But nothing worked. The same thing was happening even when I had the HDD hooked up to a IDE/SATA converter and plugged into an IDE port.

and as far as I know the aren't any SATA Drivers offered for my motherboard at the gigabyte site. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just wanna get this thing working

To enable hot plug capability for the SATA connectors controlled by the ICH9 South Bridge, you must install Windows Vista (on ICH9, hot plug is supported in Windows Vista only) and configure the SATA connectors for AHCI mode. (Refer to manual Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," "Integrated Peripherals," for details on enabling AHCI.)

I had to open the laptop casing and used this to wipe the usually hidden edges of the sensitive surface of the touchpad with a damp cloth. After reassembling and starting, the touchpad seemed working as the pointer responded to the touch. I had to re-attach the keyboard. After that the touchpad was not recognized. The connection to the mainboard seems fine but I re-plugged it. If relevant or not (assuming the touchpad is responsible only for moving and clicking), if the pointer happens over a link, the URL is shown, that is the pointer is active. 1) The connection to the touchpad seems to have no plug, i.e. is soldered, and I didn't check it. Should I, even after a short intervention that I did? 2) There is a dark glossy bulging surface ca. 1x.5" on the bottom (back) of the touchpad. Just in case, should this be open or covered? 3) Should I need a replacement, how do I find compatible ones?

Sorry to hear of your problem in locating the necessary drivers.  Due to the age of your laptop Lenovo has since moved the C200 downloads over to their legacy download library which can be found by using the link below.....

bought an old Dell Optiplex GX280, booted up, usb mouse and keyboard are seen and im asked to click continue [or similar] to install drivers for them. but of coarse i cant as they dont work in the first place. same problem with a serial mouse,,,any ideas anyone

what is topic description/title for

A:Optiplex GX280 keyboard & mouse not working becuase i cant install drivers

Hi, I'm guessing that this is not a new install of Windows XP?

Do some test. Turn on the Power and when the Dell logo appears Press the F2 key for the Bios Setup and see if that works, Same with F12. F12 is the boot device menu. If so then that is good. If not then report back. That will determine if the Keyboard is working at all.

Is your GX280 one of the ones that has a PS2 port for the Keyboard and Mouse? If So borrow them if You can and use them to click to install the USB ones. This is an example. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-OEM-Dell-OptiPlex-GX280-IO-Serial-PS2-Panel-board-with-cable-T4444-0T4444-/350632562578
I do not vouch for this vendor, I only use them as an example.

The reason I asked about the PS2 ports is there are several versions of the GX280 as I remember the model. Some have PS2 ports in the card slots area. Those hook up to the motherboard with a cable.

Quite often if you let it sit at the login screen and then tap, Not Hold, the power button so it shuts off, The keyboard and mouse will work on the reboot.
Good Luck

Just sharing...My keyboard stopped working one day. It sometimes worked when I started the computer but stopped working after that. I followed instructions, and updated the drivers to no avail.On youtube I saw a few video regarding problems with windows 10 and the keyboard not working. I had installed windows 10 about a month before my keyboard stopped working. The video states you must go to the settings, ease of access, and keyboard.  Within keyboard you just change the various switches as instructed. I restarted my computer and to my amazement it worked. I'm just putting it out there should anyone be facing the same problem.

I'm going from Vista to 7. I installed 7 and it worked without flaw, through new program installs and updates and other tasks you need to do when installing a OS. I shut it off for the night and when i tried to reboot it wouldn't recognize the Hard drive. I have to access whatsoever to the Hard drive. I tried a reinstall but that only goes so far because i have to remove the Hard drive.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Check the cabling and jumpers to make sure the connection is good. Set it as single hard drive on cable, jumpered Master. See if it shows up in BIOS under HD's.

Download and burn to CD GWScan which is best version of WD Digital Lifeguard: GWSCAN 5.12 Unzips to C:Cabs where you can find ISO to burn.

Run the full HD CD scan, then boot into Win7 DVD or Repair CD, press Shift F10 to open a Command Line, type chkdsk /f then sfc /scannow. System Repair Disc - Create

If Win7 still won't start, boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept offered repair. If fails, boot back in click through to Startup Repair to run up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts. If not, report back with exact error messages.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000
OS: Windows 8.1 and X (Mac)

My keyboard stopped typing numbers after 7 on the top, numbers after 3 on the number pad and all characters to the right of  including the letter P. 

This setup has worked for me just fine for about six months.
Here are the steps I've taken:
1.  Replaced batteries on the keyboard and mouse
2.  Unplugged and plugged in the USB Receiver for the mouse/keyboard (it is plugged into the front USB 2.0 port)
3.  Unplugged and plugged in the KVM Switch
Any suggestions here?

Also, I see keyboard and mouse ports can I use them for other devices?
