It seems that everytime I install a new Windows/7 Pro x86 or x64 system on my ThinkPad T60P 8742-AL1, I get two devices that are unknown and then I spend an hour(s) or so looking for the solutions which are generally posted in SEPARATE forum topics. I just did a new install this weekend and ran into these unknown devices again.
The ACPI\IBM0071 device is the "Thinkpad Fast Infrared Port" driver available from the Microsoft Update Catalog in both x86 (32 KB size) and x64 (34 KB size) versions at level 6.0.6001.18000 dated 6/21/2006 from National Semiconductor. Search on "Thinkpad Fast Infrared Port" string on the Microsoft Update Catalog site. I could not find this driver on the T60P support web page. I expanded the CAB file (contained 4 files) from Microsoft and refered to the subdirectory containing the irnsc.inf file to successfully install the driver (nscirda.sys).
The ACPI\IBM0068 device is the Lenovo Power Management device ("Lenovo PM device" under System Devices in Device Manager list) and that is the n1mku14w.exe driver and ReadMe from the Lenovo Support site (search on T60p to the Drivers & Software list). Today it was listed FIRST in the driver list when I browsed to the support site for the T60p.
Note Well: I do NOT use the Thinkpad Fast Infrared Port myself.
Perhaps a year or so from now if I'm installing Win/7 Pro again, I'll find my own post here useful to me!
The "ATI Mobility FireGL V5250" driver for the T60P Wide Screen is also on the Microsoft Update Catalog site in x86 and x64 types at Version 8.561.0.0 level. Just search on the string in double quotes in the previous sentence.
Solved! Go to Solution.
