Howdy,

Would appreciate some help. I have an "antique" IBM Thinkpad With Windows XP.

It has a 133Mhz Pentium III, 384mb RAM, a 20 Gig HDD and dates back probably as far as Thinkpads go. I need the video controller (VGA) compatibel driver (PCI\VEN_5333&DEV_8C2E&SUBSYS_01FC1014&REV_O5\4&45A7597&)

I also need a driveer for an unknown device. I suspect if I can find the Video driver, I can find the unknown device's driver at the same site.

 

The only other info I can give you is that it is TYPE 4367 and manufactured by IBM in Mexico. I am hoping to put a Linux distro on it because if certainly will not run any higher version of Windows.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

For 'unknown' and hard to find drivers I use a app called 'DriverIdentifier' http://www.driveridentifier.com/
You can also check out http://driverpacks.net/driverpacksfor your XP drivers as well. Good Luck.
