Windows 7: Can't find video driver for 'IBM ThinkPad T42' anywhere

Can't find video driver for 'IBM ThinkPad T42' anywhere

Hello everyone.

I'm trying to play World of Warcraft on an old laptop I have. I've been told to update my video drivers but I've been searching for some hours but can't find them anywhere.

The laptop is an IBM ThinkPad T42 running Windows 7 32bit. If any more information is needed, please reply to the thread and I'll answer asap.

I'd appreciate if someone could link me to the driver I need.

That is an old Laptop. IBM doesn't even make them anymore, they sold their PC division to Lenovo many years ago.

The one reference I saw was to 2004 for this model. If the 2004 date is correct then probably there are no IBM or Lenovo hardware specific drivers for either Vista or Win 7 and just whatever generic driver that Windows installs is probably all that is available.

Look at the Toshiba site and maybe something is there. Many of IBM's laptops were actually made by Toshiba for IBM.

What could be a valid solution to be able to play games like WoW on this machine?

I can't find a Windows 7 driver, try this Windows Vista one. In the download section, enter image verification, then click windows vista.
