ThinkPad T61 With Windows 2000

#1 Post by Dunkyyy » Sat Feb 02, 2019 1:42 pm

Hi,

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with Windows 2000, every single driver except the WLAN and Audio is working.
The WLAN Driver doesn't work and the connection icon says "Local Area Connection, Network Cable Unplugged."
The audio is showing a error saying it cant find the built in speakers.
Could someone help?

If you're sure the LAN cable is plugged in and is working (i.e. have a signal) then download and install the drivers.

Win2K drivers for the T61 I'm 99% sure don't exist and it's not even a good machine for it.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

@Thinkpad4by3:
maybe it's time to check the contents of our Drivers link at the top of this page?
Loadz of W2K drivers for T61 and others...

Is this Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4?

Did your T61 come with any of the Intel wireless adapters that was originally offered? If I can remember it right, none of them had any proper drivers to run under Windows 2000 without resorting to WEP encryption. The official Intel driver alone would resort to WEP encryption, but I have no idea if the PROset wireless utility does that too.

Regarding your speakers that seems to be undetectable, installing this hotfix (Q888111) may fix this issue. Remember to reinstall the audio driver, once you are done installing that hotfix.
