    What is the exact model of the IBM computer? There should be a Type-Model Number on it like 1234-ABC on it. The missing driver is for the Intel chipset, it should be available to download on the IBM/Lenovo site using the computer Type-Model number.

    As for the CD drive, try this solution: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/270008/
    If you never had Roxio, there are several other applications that can also cause the same error and the solution is the same.
