Lenovo's support says the audio driver for Vista is included in the OS. Since its not in Windows 7, and this thread is about win7/t42, that's a pretty crappy advice, don't you think ?

And to OP, when you have a problem that you've managed to solve, you should always include what you did/where you found you solution.

You can get the correct driver through Windows Update (Soundmax).

Windows 7

The ThinkVantage System Update (TVSU link above) tool (10M) did the trick for my T60. It presented with exactly the same symptoms: no audio even when windows finds the card and shows that it is producing sound. The on-screen signals for volume level and screen brightness are also working and the sound has sustained a couple of reboots till now. The mute button on the laptop doesn't work like it should but I'm not too bothered with it right now. Thank you guys so much for the info.
