Hotkey Features Integration Driver for T40 with Windows 7

#1 Post by atul » Thu May 03, 2018 7:58 am

I need help locating hotkey features integration driver for Thinkpad T40 running Windows 7. I've found the driver for T41 on (e.g., https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds014985) but I can't seem to locate the drivers that support hotkey integration on T40 running Windows 7 32-bit. Could someone please point me to the right driver? Thanks

I just attempted to install the above hotkey features integration driver that officially supports T41 on but not T40. It detected that my laptop is a T40 and exited the installation process stating that my machine was not supported. I really need help finding a hotkey features integration driver that will work on a T40 running Windows 7.

Just attempted to install the older hotkey features integration driver from http://thinkpads.com/support/Thinkpad-D ... m/T40.html. This one supports T40 but only supports operating systems up to Windows XP. As I expected, the installer quit stating that the OS on this laptop is not supported.

So, I have driver that supports T40 but only works for Windows XP. And I have a driver that supports Windows 7 but only works on Thinkpad T41 onwards. Is there no hope to find a hotkey features integration driver that supports both T40 and Windows 7?

Try drivers from maybe the R40 or Ideapads from that period.
W7 was never intended for T40.
The earliest machine that W7 runs halfway decently on, is the T43.

I am not sure about the T40, but for my T42, I have to use Hotkey Features driver version 3.70.0003 or older for it to work properly with Win 7 32-bit.

Scroll down the following page to find the older versions of this driver.

I use version 6.03 for On Screen Display and it is working fine for my T22, T23, A30p, A31p, T42, T43/p on Windows 7 (and for T43/p the driver works just fine in Windows 8.1 and 10)
I can send you the setup file for the version I am using if you want.
