S205 - Sound installation problems under XP


I just bought an Ideapad s205 free DOS. Windows XP installation went perfectly. All drivers from the lenovo web page worked without any problems. There is just the sound, that does not work. When I try to use the online offered driver it says, that the hardware does not exist. At the moment, I have no clew which driver I could use.

Thanks for your help!

Hi and welcome,

try this Thread where you can found  Windows 7 & Windows XP Driver for your machine 

or go direct to Ideapad S205 XP Driver should be the Connexant Audio Driver

keep in mind that you have Servicepack 3 for Windows XP (German) installed , also  DotNet Framework 3.5

 and this could be helpful (in german) for driver installation ..

or this the way to go ...

control panel >rightclick system >devicemanager >update driver >install from choose  location computer hdd >browse to

where driver is found in extracted , (when you try to install) path is this way  :

 C:\Drivers\Conexant Audio Driver\XP32  > choose  the LT1CC25a.inf ... > ok . driver now should be installed ...
