Hi,

I reformatted my computer but now I'm missing some drivers, and it says I don't have a graphics card which I know I had one before. I'm looking for some specific drivers for windows xp on an ibm t43 thinkpad, but on the lenovo website the ones i need are not compatible with windows xp. Does anyone know trusted websites where I can download more drivers, or is there somewhere I can purchase a driver package on cd??? I don't know all that much about computers
As for the graphics card, I don't know why my computer isn't recognizing it? Thanks

Welcome to BleepingComputer :thumbsup:

Have you checked the following site :
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58597.html

It clearly says Windows XP.

Oh yes I downloaded every driver that was compatible with my system, but there are a few key drivers (eg the hibernation driver) that won't work on xp with a t43 ( I tried it anyway crashed my system). I was wondering if there is a reputable site where I can purchase a backup driver cd, or just download them. I don't trust just any site

You actually don't need the hibernation driver as windows xp has hibernation functionality built-in.

Which other drivers are you looking for specificly?
