Default Old Thinkpad Drivers

Anyone know where I can find (or if you have) any drivers for a thinkpad 755cd. This machine is really old but I would like to get it running as a project.

Thanks!

go to IBM.com and goto downloads and support. They should have all of the drivers you need. I wish I could give you the link to the drivers but www.ibm.com is down.

This laptop is so old, IBM took the drivers off of their site.

Call or email them and ask them for the drivers. If they took them off their site, they should still have a copy laying around in their database. If not, yer SOL. Time to upgrade.

Thanks guys! I'll check that stuff out. My last resort will be to email or call them because chances are they will tell me to send it to them and charge me 100 bux to tell me that I should buy a new one.
