    Hello, and good day,

    I use an old but usefull T400 laptop ( 6475-PP9 ).
    It runs on Win XP pro SP3. I wanted to update the BIOS... Bad idea.
    Now i had an error.
    I have a DSERR_NODRIVER message when starting app.
    I did not success in installing drivers.
    Does anyone have an idea ?
    It works fine on an other HDD with Win 7. But i need Win XP.

    Best regards,

    Pascal ( French user of this nice laptop )

    Do yourself a big favor and dump Windows XP. If you absolutely must run this insecure legacy OS, install it in a virtual machine under Windows 7.

    Hello,

    I Need Windows XP as an installed OS, with a particular version of JAVA ( 6 ), and no internet access.
    It can not work on virtual machine. It is for professionnal use, and it must run on an old laptop with firewire and audio.
    That's why i use this like that.
    No other solution.
    But actualy, it's after a bios update, that my hardware audio did not works.
    Please, if you have any idea, i will take ! ;)

    Thanks for help.

    Pascal

    If the system was working fine before the BIOS update you can downgrade to the previous BIOS. I highly recommend doing this using the Bootable CD method, visit the driver page here and scroll near the bottom where you can download the older ISO's.

    Burn it to a blank CD and run it on startup (press F12 when the ThinkPad logo appears for boot options). Make sure the system has a working battery and is plugged in to the mains before proceeding.
