After a long, drawn out disaster involoving Partition Magic, i have finally managed to get XP to reinstall on my laptop. It's an IBM ThinkPad model R31. Windows does not seem to like my video chipset at all, nor will it recognize my PCMCIA card. The problem is that the wireless card came with the computer with XP already installed, therefore no driver CD was provided. The company that supposedly makes it apparently does not exist (T-Link). Here's what i need to know:

-How can i find out what my chipset is for my video card?
-Where do drivers exist for that?
-How can i find drivers for my wireless? I'm not even sure of the chipset.

The wireless card is going to drive me insane. It's made by "T-Link" and its model number is 11pm01. Its 11mbps. P/n: 18-aa-81al-us S/n: akh1210000017. That's all i've got to go off of. Any ideas?

These should get you started.
