Alright so i have an IBM Thinkpad A30 and Windows XP is not showing any hardware for the audio...i took the laptop apart and think the audio is directly tied into the laptop, but i'm not sure...just wondering if anybody out there knows anything about A30's that might be able to shed some light onto this subject for me, and any suggestions on what i might be able to do....


Thanks for your help!

Here is a link to the Audio Driver:

And here is a link to the Manual:

Do you have any question marks in your device manager? Right Click My Computer, Left Click Properties and then select Hardware, then Device Manager. Look for exclamation points or question marks.



is not showing any hardware for the audio...

What exactly does this mean? Not showing in Device Manager?

I don't know anything about laptops, but I wondering what you meant when you say you took the laptop apart.

Was that before or after your self-described problem?

What prompted you to tinker with the laptop first...then ask for help?

Any other known problems with this system?

Well i took the laptop apart to see if there was something i could just replace because i have another thinkpad that i can use for parts...there are no question marks in device manager, it doesn't show anything that might even possibly be it....


When i said that in device manager and audio manager it looks as though there isn't even an audio card on the laptop...

According to what I could see, there are 2 speakers in the case. Do you have those and are you getting anything out of them? Static or white noise?

In Device Manager, is there a section for Sound?
