No audio with R60 Thinkpad

Hello everyone,

I'm having a problem with an R60 thinkpad.  I just got it the other day and I have no audio.  I've looked in the Device Manager and there are no question marks or exclamation points in there to indicate anything wrong.  Where else should I look?  It's not a big problem to be without audio, but it would be nice to have.

Re: No audio with R60 Thinkpad



Here's one solution.


1. Download the SoundMax audio driver for the ThinkPad R60 from the following IBM web page. Please note that the audio driver is not identified as a SoundMax driver on this web page. Look for the 77a224ww.exe file link.


2. Run the setup file for the audio driver: c:\drivers\win\audio\setup.exe


2a) The setup program may indicate that your system does not have a high-definition audio codec. If that happens, exit the installation, and download and install the Realtec audio codec.


Downloading and installing the Realtec high-definition audio codec


1. Visit:


2. On the High Definition Audio Codecs page, click the "I accept to the above" check box.


3. Click the Next button.


4. On the Software: Drivers & Utilities page, find the line item for your operating system, and click one of the Go buttons in the Download group of columns.


5. Follow the onscreen instructions. Note: the audio codec is over 20MB in size.


6. After installing the Realtek audio codec, install the SoundMax audio driver, as described above.
