I have a thinkpad r51 model 2887w23 and when i bought it the audio worked fine but it was really slow so i put windows xp pro on it and i installed all the drivers from the lenovo website and everything in the device manager says it works fine yet when you click on the sound max propertys and click the propertys tab each one says that the driver is enabled but not functioning properly and then if you click settings it says that it cant find the itergrated audio driver and that the driver file may be missing try reinstalling the driver. Ive installed at least 10 different drivers ive found all over the internet and i cant get it to work. i need help!!!

Check speaker connection to back of system
Check volume control in windows by doing the following:
Go to Start and The Run
Type in sndvol32.exe and press Enter
Make sure Master Volume is not muted and turned up
Check Cd Player volume is not muted and turned up

It is possible that it is disabled in the bios.
Try rebooting and at the first post screen try tapping DEL, F1, F2 F12 or ESC
One of them will allow you into the bios.
Find the area for the onboard components and make sure the audio is enabled. Save and exit. Let me know if this works.

Ok let's try reinstalling the driver.
Please go HERE
Scroll down till you find the Audio section and then download the file named
v5.12.0135410 Dated 4 Oct 2005
This should be the original audio driver for the system.
