I upgraded my drive on an M55 8811 to a 1tb HD and did a clean install of Win XP Pro. Everything seemed fine, and the drivers seemed to work so I installed my programs, then discovered I had a problem with an Intel chipset driver. I seem to be unable to use my USB functions.
I've tried reinstalling the chipset driver with the latest one on this site (it's a 2008 Intel driver) but I still couldn't get it to work.
So today I've sat down and read the fine print on the Intel Chipset doc. I'm not real clear on how I'm suppose to install the Intel Chipset driver before I install the OS because I had a tough enough time getting the CD to read, and anyway, its a moot point becauseI've got everything installed and the M55 is basically working -- minus the USB functions.
Can anyone tell me how I can, at this point, get the chipset drivers to install?

Model is 8811 YHC.
I had first installed Q1CHP09US13 downloaded from Lenovo, but hadn't installed drivers in recommended order of chipset first. As I said, basic functions seemed to work so I installed software programs. When I realized my USB functions didn't work, looked at Device Manager and saw Unknown Device highlighted. Reinstalled driver, but nothing happened.
Then I found Intel auto driver site
Which gave me another driver, the one i mentioned being dated 2008. Tried installing that. Nothing happened. Then I looked up problem on web and tried to solve USB problem by looking at individual devices. Well, my processor didn't have a driver. It wasn't hightlighted, but I removed it and tried and autoinstall. Ditto for USB v125w.
That made matters worse. Now I the following items without drivers:
Intel(R) ICH8/ICH8R Family LPC Interface Controller - 2810
on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System
an error occured during the installation of the device. The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
Location 0 (v125w)
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
