T400-hardware not working- no wireless/sound

Hello all,

 

Sorry for disturb, but my T400 stopped working when I put that for an overnight download.

 

I am using KUbunt 9.10. After started an eMule download, and the next morning I found the computer is freezed. I rebooted the system. The wireless and sound system are not working anymore. I cannot find them in either lsusb or lspci output. I turned to Windows 7 and it also cannot recognize the hardware. Then I reinstalled Windows, and it still refuse to work with wireless or sound.

 

What would you suggest?

 

Thanks!

The model is 7417-CTO I guess. Also I do not have liquid in it. It is rather strange.

Re: T400-hardware not working- no wireless/sound

do you have the Rescue and Recovery partition that was installed on your system?

 

If you do press the blue thinkvantage button during the laptop initial startup, and choose hardware diagnostic, and run a report on your sound and wireless card.

 

if you don't then run this software:
