• Network adapter / drivers

    So it's next to impossible to install drivers for IBM Thinkpad in that, there were so many made, the serial numbers are quite vast and far fetched. I reinstalled windows and, of course, cannot log on to even register the OS. There must be a zip somewhere of numerous drivers I can download onto a thumbnail drive and get the little guy up and running again.

    I've done it by hand many times, but mostly, if I'm running Windows,
    I'll install Thinkvantage System Update, and it pulls all of the
    needed/updated drivers for you.

    I don't see the difficulty, you go to Lenovo's site and enter your
    model number, you'll get a list of drivers for your system. I've done
    it many times.
