RF stands for refurbished unit, which could mean anything, but luckily there is not much difference in the X61 units so just browse the following list and download the driver you need.

You might also want to install System Update and it will take care of the rest.

Your machine is RF3 which is a refurb code, and won't be on the site...

 

To find out what your machine originally was, go into "warranty" part, type in your model and serial, and original info might come up (like 6465-AU1). If this fails, go into "parts originally shipped with this machine" and you'll get all the hardware info that you need for updating the drivers. 

 

Hope this helps. 

Cheers,

George
