Re: T40 is ignoring ALL drivers

Welcome to the forum!

 

Have you unpacked the drivers from the appropriate directories after downloading them? For instance, your Ethernet should be in C>Drivers>Win>Ethernet.

 

Good luck and let us know.

Cheers,

George

Re: T40 is ignoring ALL drivers

Nice to be a member of the forum!

 

Downloaded the drivers directly form the IBM support site was my first step, searched via Service Tag.

I ran the .exe, followed the instructions while isntalling.

 

I don't currently have the computer in front of me, so i'de have to check the location tomarrow morning.

 

I just did the defaults pressing next as a went. (probably should have read them!)

 

But, if that helps let me know.

I'll post back the directory location tomarrow (12am here, i'll post at around 10am tomarrow)

 

Thank's for the VERY fast response!

Re: T40 is ignoring ALL drivers

It is indeed installing to that directory. (C>Drivers>Win>Ethernet.)

I don't see why it's failing to register Smiley Sad

 

help!

Re: T40 is ignoring ALL drivers

It is not installing to that directory, it is extracting to that directory. There maybe a setup file which you need to run. What do the installation instructions say on the driver download site?

Followed those instructions and it works now!

 

 

The drivers dont install themselves, you have to manually do it Smiley Happy
