ThinkPad X31 drivers for Windows 7

Postby shovenose » July 30th, 2011, 9:55 pm

So, I've fixed up my old IBM a little bit:
-New palmrest/upper casing
-Replaced missing key on keyboard
-New Heatsink/Fan
-New Heatsink vent cover
-New HDD Caddy/cover plate
-32GB SSD
-Cleaned up everything and made it all shiny.

Anyway, the point is that Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit is using "Standard VGA Adapter that won't let me do Aero and it won't let me use Sleep mode :-( and of course all the other shit that happens.
I've tried like 3 different 3rd-party drivers they did not help.
Please provide the right drivers.
Thanks!

I think the video card of the X31 is too old to support DirectX 9.0. That's why you can't enable aero on your x31.
Please feel free to point out any mistakes in my messages. That will be helpful for me to make less mistakes in the future. :-)
Any help will be appreciated.:thnx:

Progress: used the XP from the lenovo website, now at least I have a driver ;) still no Aero though.

Fuck IBM they should have used a better video card!

Does it have 16MB Radeon 7000 graphics? If so, I doubt it would support Aero.

I try to avoid buying a laptop that has dedicated graphics. They usually cook themselves after a few years (or sound like a jumbo jet)
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards! :D

It is working fine just no Aero. Yes it's the 16MB Radeon 7000...
My Lenovo has Intel HD 3000 and while running cool it has great gaming performance!
