Latest Available Drivers on Lenovo Site for N100 not recognised by laptop

Hi,

 

I'm helping a friend who needed to restore their laptop to factory conditions; they remembered to create recovery CDs but the recovery partition has since been deleted, so the CDs can't help.

 

So, XP was reinstalled (the licence key is on the laptop) and we downloaded the latest drivers.

 

Our problem is that even though we downloaded all relevant drivers for this model (from here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-63572) and installed them, the latop behaves as though they had not been installed (ie 10 devices shown in Device Manager.

 

BIOS is set up correctly (offers very few options) and we've tried downloading one or two alternative drivers but it's made no difference.

 

Can someone please help us get thigs working please?

hi Jannoth,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

Can you try to unpack one of the drivers using 7zip, Winrar, or Universal Extractor and manually update the driver (see this guide)

 

Let me know your findings

 

 

Regards
