How to find drivers for Thinkpad T500 ?

How to find drivers for Thinkpad T500 ?

I write T500 in the search field but it seems the youngest is now T520.

Where Lenovo put drivers for T500?

I did not see any ThinkPad T500 drivers in the Lenovo "EOL" area. Did I miss something?

Did you open the EOL site above?
In Device Drivers File Matrix section choose:
- Type -> Laptop and Tablets
- Series -> ThinkPad T Series
- Sub series -> ThinkPad T500

Re: How to find drivers for Thinkpad T500 ?

Thanks for the quick reply x220forme.

Yes, I did open the Lenovo EOL area... I had selected "500 series" not "T series". My error.

I have several Problem Devices and I see lots of things to look over in the EOL area. I wonder if a rescue/recovery disk could be assembled for my particular T500? Maybe based on s/n or other build code?

My HD failed and I have the T500 running Win 7 on SSD. I suspect most of my drivers are generic system32. Mostly working, but with less than full functionality.

If you haven't already, try ThinkVantage System Update. It should find most/all of the drivers appropriate for your T500:

Re: How to find drivers for Thinkpad T500 ?

Hi, Thanks for your post. The Site itself is still up, but the links to the drivers themselves are dead. I cannot download any driver. Is there any way to contact Lenovo about this that you know off?

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: How to find drivers for Thinkpad T500 ?

Are you referring to the EOL site?  I just tried the T500 drivers and there does seem to be something hinky with the links - left clicking on them doesn't do anything.  However, a right click and selecting "save link as..." seems to work.
