can't load drivers to t42. Using an IBM pre-load xp pro sp3 hard drive

Hello all Smiley Very Happy

I am Charlie and new to the community and have  2379-rhu  T42


I can not load the last 3 drivers to this T42 with an IBM pre-load HDD with xp pro sp3.


i have done all the windows updates and been to Think Advantage tool box---it just flags me the drivers are not loaded.

I went to the Lenovo site and the Intel joy in mudville Smiley Sad


i went through a lot of the t42 driver issues in the forum posts, but not solved my issues (or covered them all).


here is what i can gather from device manager and the net:


thinkpad PM device :

device instance id : ROOT\unknown\000

hardware id : *len0068



device instance ID: ACPI\ATM1100\4&61F3B4B&0

Hardware Ids: ACPI\ATM1100


Network Controller

Device instanc Id : PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4224&SUBSYS_10108086&REV_05\4&39A85202&0&10F0


Hardware IdPCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4224&SUBSYS_10108086&REV_05s:






GOOGLE showed me this is an


Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection

THANK YOU, for any and all assistance.

Hi Charlie,


I believe these three drivers should be what you need. Did you try to download and install any of these? If not try these and let us know if that works out fine or not.


Intel wireless driver:


Atmel TPM (Trusted Platform Module) device driver:


ThinkPad Power Management driver for Windows:



You can also use Lenovo system update to install and update your drivers without the need to download and install each one manually.


Lenovo system update for Windows XP:
