Drivers, T400 2768-AA6

2008-08-16, 12:26 PM

Hi,

 

Finally got my T400 and the first thing I did was wiping out the preinstalled OS and replacing it with anotherversion (Windows Vista Ultimate).

 

I browsed to Lenovo website for the drivers, but found out that my system model is not listed there. I chosed my system type and listed drivers for all models. Unfortunately only a few drivers are there... I am still missing drivers for the wireless card, ATI radeon card and possibly more.

 

So I did a system recovery. Back with the preinstalled system, but to my big surprise the video drivers for the graphic card were not installed! And I have not found them anywhere on the Lenovo site. Where can I find the ATI drivers?

 

I have browsed the recovery partition and the CDs that came with my computer. But don't find any drivers there.

 

Well this is my first Lenovo experience... and I am not really impressed. Hope someone can point me to the direction where I can find all drivers for my system.

 

/Mike

majkball, welcome to the forum,

 

if you have recovered to factory settings you can find drivers in the C:\SWTOOLS folder, it maybe that it hasn't installed the driver correctly. Please also look at this post from 2 days ago.

Hi,

 

I have browsed the mentioned directory but I don't seem to find any ATI drivers there.

 

So my question still remains, where do I find the drivers for my ATI Radeon 3400 HD series?

 

Is it safe to use the drivers provided by ATI website, or would that render my warranty coverage?

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Hi,

 

Could anyone suggest who I could contact on Lenovo to get a solution to my problem?

 

I have browsed the Lenovo website and have not found any traces of ATI Radeon 3400HD series drivers.

 

All my support questions to Lenovo are silently ignored.

 

My first time Lenovo experience is now... well you can only imagine, since I have to keep the language clean. :smileyhappy:

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

 

I would really appreciate if someone could help me out on this one.

??

 

So are there no drivers available to the public?

 

This computer have been nothing but trouble since the first day I received it. Who are the responsible persons at Lenovo i can contact to obtain drivers... otherwise I don't see any other solution than returning my system and claiming my money back, since my product obviously isn't working as it is supposed to work.

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

I am a little surprised that there wasn't a driver to be found in the C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS folder after you had recovered your T400. Normally it would be a folder called VIDEO. Is it possible for you to list the folders you found.

 

Thanks

Andy

Shouldn't the drivers be available online? Is it safe to use drives provided by ATI or will that render my warranty coverage?

omg... i should have read your post before doing the same thing to my T400, which lended me in the exact same situation as you, with a handicapped T400 sitting on my desk. Sorry i couldn't be of much help, but hopefully adding another complain might catch the lenovo guy's attention.

 

DON'T RELEASE A PRODUCT YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE SUPPORT FOR.

I have more and more issues with this machine for each day I use it.

 

I had to disable ThinkVantage mangement of the wireless network card cause it kept crashing the connection, with reboot as single mean of recovery from fault. Crap!

 

Now I am facing a new problem. Can't enable sleep mode. Wonder if this issue can be resolved. 

 

Well I am quite confident that I will sell of this piece of crap machine in a very near future... too bad. I was really looking forward working on a ThinkPad, but my Dell experience is much better. 

 

Not being able to supply drivers for the graphic card is a real shame... and not even bother to explain what I should do. I call that piece of crap support as well. Sorry for being so begative, but my overall experience is really BAD!

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Majkball,

 

Apologies that the drivers have not been available for download on the website for you.  We are looking into this and will get resolved as quickly as possible. 

 

While nothing would prevent you from using the ATI OEM drivers in theory, the Lenovo specific drivers are tested and are supported.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
