Thread: IBM T60 - No Sound, only rare beeps.

  1. #21
    OK, I went to device manager. I see Legacy audio drivers, is that what I'm looking for, and if so, I uninstall it, bc I only see 1. and what about audio codecs? I clicked audio driver and it says it's working properly. just a little fyi.
    I don't believe those two are related to what we're working on. I remember them being there on mine and I never messed with them, so I'd say don't bother with them.

    That tells me more though -- That means there are no T60 audio drivers installed, which means your tech didn't download and install the right driver or didn't do it properly, but as I noted, with this particular laptop that's an easy mistake to make.

    Hi there potter~,

    If you haven't found a solution please have a look at this for me:

    When you boot up you will get some sort of IBM/Lenovo screen I expect? Then you should briefly see an option to go into "setup" or "BIOS" or something. F2, Esc, Delete or something?

    Try that and have a look at all the BIOS options.

    Hopefully there will be some setting that relates to sound. Enable "onboard sound" or whatever? Just make a note of them and what they are set at....if they are "off" then activate them.

    Now go into Windows............. in the Control Panel there should be something like "Sounds & Multimedia Properties" With a sub-option of "Audio" that displays "Preferred Devices". Make sure that those settings match what you actually have.

    Sorry I cannot be more precise right now, as I have been working Windows 2000 and Vista since Christmas.

    I will try to get an XP box online later today (Saturday)

    EDIT:

    XP box now up and running

    It is "Sounds & Audio Devices" and you need to look at "Audio", "Voice" and "Hardware"

    Sorry, with the T60 you need to hit the F1 key as soon as the Thinkpad Logo is displayed and that will take you into BIOS setup.

    In Windows XP "Sounds & Audio Devices" <Audio> what does it say the "Sound Playback Default Device" is?

    Something like Intel AD1981 (possibly 1984?) HD Audio 1.0?

    Also, whilst you are there, go into "Advanced Audio Properties" <Speaker Setup> and make sure that you have one of the laptop options selected.

    Finally, go into <Hardware>, select each item one by one and click on the "Properties" radio button. Look to see if any of them are reported as having problems.

    Hi there Keegan,

    1. What actually got the sound to work?
    2. Does the blue screen give you a message (you might have to go into BIOS and turn off the restart on error option).

    Can you get into "diagnostic" or "safe" mode and look at the event logs?........ if so, what messages are there?
