No sound? IBM Thinkpad T60

I just recently reformatted my computer hoping that my sound would work, but still i cant hear nothing. Ive installed the drivers and installed a program called "SoundMAX" however i cant find the reason why it will not work.


Any ideas?

Re: No sound? IBM Thinkpad T60

Hi john_p,

It could be hardware issue, try booting from a Live CD of any linux distro, if you hear no sound in linux then probably the sound card on your system board is broken.

Hope it helps.

Thank for the tip...For others: Yes, go to Lenovo US and download T61 (1959) audio driver. it is a Sound Max device...Not sure why Lenovo hides this from T60...fishy...:-)
