3000 C200 Need to load "base system driver"

2008-07-17, 14:29 PM
Can anyone direct me as to where the "base system drivers" are for the Lenovo 3000 C200?  I have to purchase a new hard drive (after the factory one failed) and I loaded all drivers fine except this one listed in the device manager.  Any help greatly appreciated!

I'm new to this forum, i got a used Lenovo 3000 C200 and have the exact same problem... three "base system device" apears as the much hated yellow question mark under "unknown devices". i readed that those are found usually in the Chipset drivers, but on the intel page they say that those are found on the Lan configuration drivers pack that intel distributes, so when i got back to the "lenovo drivers download" page i find out that lan drivers are under Realtek control.


Can anyone please tell us where to download the correct drivers to solve this problem? i really don't want to download any driver from the lenovo page, those are more than 2 years old... (btw,  Lenovo: you should update driverson that page frecuently...)


Sorry for my bad english.
