The IBM Thinkpad 701 represents one of the breakthrough innovations in the area of mobile computing systems. It is considered by many computer experts as the first mobile machine to feature a full sized keyboard panel which automatically expands once the display is opened and folds when the display screen is closed. Because of this action it was codenamed Butterfly because the action of the keyboard simulated that of the butterfly's wings. Like most mobile computing systems at the time it was equipped with a built-in communication hardware component which allowed it to send and receive information as well as log into remote computer networks like the Internet. It features a modem device with 14.4 kilobits per second maximum transmission capability that supported the transmission of data, fax and voice packets across computer networks. These functionalities are only activated by the corresponding device driver designed by the manufacturer.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The IBM Thinkpad 701 Internal Modem Voice driver allows the mobile computing system to take advantage of communication technologies. With the presence of the correct device driver it can be used for telephony functions allowing it to be used as a speakerphone or answering machine among others. This allows the computer user to receive calls using the built-in microphone and speaker systems of the host computer system. Essentially this turns the host machine into a type of mobile telephone device. The implementation of the correct device driver allows the built-in modem communication device allows the IBM Thinkpad 701 to make use of conventional telephone systems to implement its communication infrastructure. The device driver for the supported communication hardware component allows the other telephony and terminal emulation applications installed in the host machine to take advantage of the functionality of talking with other computer systems. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and IBM Thinkpad 701 Internal Modem Voice errors before installing any driver updates.
