Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad R51 ?
The sound on both my old IBM laptops (T40 & X31) no longer work.
\015 It seems that I lost the sound on both laptops at approximately the same time. I have checked drivers, they seem to be the right ones. I have disabled and reinabled the sound on both and still no sound. Please help me I am at my witts end.\015
Try pressing the sound up button on the top of the keyborad. There are 3 buttons sound up, sound down and mute. It appears that the sound control on windows is independant of the buttons.
A lot of older laptops will have issues with the sound because of speaker failure. You can check your laptop by plugging an earphone into the earphone jack, and checking for sound. If you hear the sound through the earphone, your laptop speakers are bad.
