3000 C100, re-install XP, no Rescue & Recovery option.


I have a Lenova 300 c100 which I installed a fresh copy of XP service pack two onto, the laptop works great but I dont seem to be able to get the audio or wi-fi to work. I have tried to download the audio and wireless drivers but they dont seem to be downloading correctly ( still the yellow explanation marks against them in device manager ) . I can connect the laptop to the internet via ethernet cable to the router. Im no expert on computer but would be grateful for any help at all. I only have the laptop and no recovery disks or anything like that . Cheers

Re: 3000 C100, re-install XP, no Rescue & Recovery option.

hi spectrum,


Welcome to the Forums.


Are these the drivers that you're trying to install?


Audio driver

30.45 MB


Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Windows XP Home/Pro SP2

73.51 MB


Intel Wireless LAN Driver

18.51 MB


If the above drivers doesn't install correctly, try to extract them using 7-zip or Winrar and follow this guide on how to manually update the drivers.



Hope this helps

Hi Spectrum....

I have only just 'seen' this note from you.

I am a retired senior European IBM technical specialist for the 3000 seriesand have built/modified/installed hundreds of C100s!!

Are you still struggling with this problem?

Somewhere I am sure I have all the answers to your problems including a full 'ready to download' build of a complete C100 system?

Drop  me a note here if you are still 'suffering' and we can then chat on a more informal level elsewhere when I can answer all your questions?
