Having problems with your Lenovo Thinkpad R61i Notebook PC ?

Need software download , bought a second hand unit with no disk

Answers :

Do you mean the device drivers for your model laptop?
\015\012When you download the Thinlpad device drivers, they need to be the XP or Vista versions of Windows installed on your model laptop.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The Thinkpad laptops may come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.
Buy a copy of the Operating System you wish to use and re-install the OS to your laptop. It'll be good as new and you will get all the support and updates for the OS.
