Audio Problems I had to completely reinstall my os and now I have no sound. My sound driver calls for the realtek ac97 audio driver. I have downloaded multiple drivers that are suppose to work but I get the same message when it is installed. After restart it say invalid date as to the driver that just was installed. This has happened to every driver I have downloaded. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Maybe a silly question, but is your time and date correct on your computer?

Dear loandtee,
u said u reinstalledyour os. but u din't tell wat's your os.
If it is xp then you have to instal audio driver of that particular motherboard.
If it is vista then no need of audio driver.
U also din't specify your motherboard make and also chipset.
For example i'm havin asus motherboard for intel945gc chipset.
So i can only tel general suggestion
If u have motherboard cd then no problem. it wil have appropriate audio driver.
If you have to download from net then u should find those two details.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Bluetooth & sound


    Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

    Don't start up


    check that all removable media is removed from computer, flash drives etc,if this message still appears the reinstall your os, there are several reasons for this error.

    How to install Anti virus on my desktop


    Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

    Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

    Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

    Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.
