My question is about my daughters IBM Thinkpad T41, i had Ubuntu 8 on the laptop and it works great but she wants iTunes on the laptop and it does not work, so i went back Win XP Pro service 3 and it does not fine the wireless network card or the sound drivers. I have downloaded every possible driver and update from IBM and Lenovo web pages with no success, does anyone have any ideas where i can find a way cause i rang IBM and they told me already what i had done.

According to the Lenovo website ...

And this is only a guess on my part ...

"Released Versions
Version Initial release
Version Support for X30
Version Support for R40 and Mic Noise Reduction
Version Support for T40, T40p and X31
Version Support for T41, R50
Version Support for X40, R50e, R51, T42, T42p
Version Support for Windows XP SP2
Version A problem fix"

The highlighted driver would appear to be your best bet. However, there is no mention of Service Pack 3 - whether this is of any importance is just a guess.

Is '1ga241ww.exe' the Driver Pack you downloaded before?

You'll find it here:

The final segment of the address should be
I'm not sure why the '<' is appearing !

*It's still not appearing properly! It should be 'document dot do...'

yes the driver 1ga241ww.exe was the one i downloaded and still did not work, i even downloaded a program Unknown Device Identifier to check the hardware and that said the same thing as you have and what i have already done, maybe it is the service pack 3 might have to go back to win xp s/pack 2 or stick to ubuntu, thank you for your help. regards frank

Well if you have every Driver on the IBM?Lenovo Site

You should identify the WiFi Device and check that you have the correct Driver. Unknown Device Identifier will help you here


After you know what the hardware is you can then start to work on finding/installing the correct driver.
