Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook ?
I have an old IBM thinkpad that needs reprogramming..
\015 My problem is that I have an old IBM thinkpad and it's a T22 series and I need a reprogramming disk for it, but I can't seem to find one... what should I do..\015
You can use any Operating System disk (such as Linux, Windows, etc) to reload your laptop. The trick is you have to go to the IBM website (lenovo.com) and download the drivers for your system after loading the Operating System. For your laptop, it appears the ibm website is having an issue listing the drivers, but they just updated it last week so it should be up soon. I am sure if you look around the web you can find the important drivers like video, audio, and network card drivers and then by running windows update you should be able to find a bunch more. If you have an idea what Operating System you would like to use I can offer more specific support.
