T42 audio with Windows 98SE

#1 Post by matti157 » Thu Aug 30, 2018 5:36 pm

Hi, I installed windows 98SE using the official IBM drivers.

The only one that does not work is the audio driver for 98SE, it installs but the sound card remains in error.

I solved by installing the T30 one, which works fine instead https://thinkpads.com/support/Thinkpad- ... m/T30.html

The latest version, this: 5.12.01.5410 does not work

The other version 4.11.01.0627a that you see on the T42 page is for 98 and not 98SE

The version 5.12.01.5160 for the T30 works

Actually I checked my T41 Win 98 SE install and I have the earlier version 4.11.01.0627a installed which worked fine despite it being for Win 98. LOL
