X61s wireless and OSD problems( need urgent help please)

2009-04-08, 5:05 AM

I just got my x61s from ebay and there are massive problems with it.

 

it;s a 7666-AH5, with just Vista Biz.

 

 

first of all, it came with no thinkvantage apps at all.

 

after installing as per thinkpad superguide,  the OSD doesnt work, access connections cant control the wireless networks if the wireless is working.

 

I keep getting PCI simple communications controller not working etc. and other devices that are not properly installed and need installation of proper drivers.

Solved! See the solution

Is the Recovery partition still intact?

 

When boot up, press the blue thinkvantage button, if the recovery partition is present, then it should take you into the Rescue and Recovery, from which you can do a factory restore. 

 

Also what the OS stickers say on the bottom of your laptop? Is it XP pro or Vista Bus?

Hello murcielago,

 

please take a look at this thread.

 

BSNFs message will show you the installation order, to get hotkeys,wireless and AC working together.

It´s for XP but will work in Vista also.

I would suggest to use AC 5.12 or 5.20 instead of 5.21.

Hello murcielago,

 

I would then suggest to reinstall Hotkey Driver.

But check you´ll need the version, which is mentioned in the AC 5.02 install instructions.
