Hello,

I recently decided to format my laptop (IBM Thinkpad T60). After that, my laptop has issues detecting my sound card. Moreover, I don't even see the audio icon on my system tray (all I heard was loud beeps whenever an error appears in Windows). The problem is, I lose my motherboard installation CD. I tried to get the right sound driver from the IBM site but it won't let me successfully install it in my laptop.

My laptop is unable to detect my sound card any longer. Is there a way around this problem? Help is highly appreciated.



Thank you.

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

What error to you have when installing the drivers? Try again but close out all your programs first, especially your anti-virus. Since this is after a reformat the drivers is most likely the issue.

I receive this error message "The HDA audio driver is required and not found" from SoundMax.

Moreover, not a single sound card is listed under Device Manager.

I think Windows have issues detecting my card......
