Re: Think pad ...T40....IBM..upgrade

Hello,

 

I visited https://download.lenovo.com/eol/index.html and looked at the ThinkPad T40 drivers listed there, and saw ones for Windows 98, Me, NT 4.0 and XP, but no Windows 7 drivers.  It may work with Windows 7 using the device drivers on the Windows 7 installation DVD or from Windows Update, but given this is now a 15 year old laptop, it probably isn't going to run Windows 7 very well.

Thank you for your reply.........unfortunately the IBM Think pad ...had a " firm ware " password ...not your typical Windows password protection...........and was unable to unlock.......so I am unable to proceed ....
