Could it be a driver issue with your sound hardware?

Assuming you run Windows, try a right-click on My Computer & select Properties for the system control panel, then select teh hardware tab and the Device manager button.

Look in the hardware list to see if you can find your sound hardware. If it is present but has a warning sign, then you probably need to re-install the driver (try the manufacturer's web site for the latest one). If it's not there, then the hardware is either disconnected (open the case & push the board home in its slot) or has died, in which case you need a new sound card.

Can't view a windows media file on tv from computer

Yep, hardware acceleration only applies to the primary output.

You can either use the video card's software to switch screen1 and 2 around (which puts your taskbar and everything on the external screen) OR

You could try going into media player's "advanced" preferences tab and look for video acceleration and hardware acceleration. Turn all of those off, and it might work by dragging the player to the external screen.

I usually put my laptop video card into "clone" mode, so both screens are identical... that works for me, and it's also easier for me to control or see what's going on because it's still infront of me.

Let us know!

Compaq 3400 amd athlon 64 processor has black screen with orange compaq logo on screen. It wont go further than this. What can be the problem?

Normaly if the computer stops responding after loading the OS, the issue most probably is related the software. If the computer stops responding before loading the OS, then most probably it would be the hardware that causes it.

Did you add any new hardware in the pc? If you did, remove the hardware and try again. If the problem solved that try reinstalling it again 1 at a time to determine which hardware actually cause the issue.

If you hear any beeping noise when you turn the pc on, observe the sound as it determines what hardware is faulty. There could be a lot of reason for this issue, RAM, Motherboard could be some of the causes.

Try these steps in sequence, until a solution is found.
Step 1: Begin troubleshooting by removing media and connected devices
  1. Turn on the computer and remove any CDs and DVDs from their drives using the CD/DVD eject button on the outside of the CD/DVD drive.
If you are unable to turn on the computer and/or eject the discs, continue using these steps. Remember to remove the discs when the computer has power and you are able to open the drive door.
  1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cable from the power outlet.
  2. With the computer turned off remove all other media and devices that are connected to the computer except for the mouse, monitor, and keyboard. Remove any floppies, printers, USB and FireWire devices, music players, cameras, and flash memory cards.
  3. With the media and devices removed, turn on the computer.
  4. If the computer has the same startup problem, leave the devices disconnected, turn off the computer and continue to Step 2. If the computer does not have the same problem, continue using these steps.
  5. If the computer is able to open Windows after the media and devices were removed, one of these items was preventing Windows from opening. Find which device or media item is causing the problem by reattaching or reinserting each to the computer one at a time. Restart the computer each time a device or media item is added until the startup problem reoccurs.
  6. Once the media or device that is causing the problem has been identified, do not continue to use it. You can troubleshoot the device or media further. Here are some helpful troubleshooting tips:
    • Now that you know which device is contributing to the startup problem, you can search the Internet or visit the manufacturer Support Web site to find more help and information.
    • CD, DVD, floppy, or camera cards that are damaged, dirty or scratched may interfere with the startup process. Do not start the computer with media in the drives.
    • The computer may try to start an operating system from an external storage device, such as a USB or FireWire drive. You can immediately work around this problem by attaching external storage devices only after Windows has opened.
    • Camera cards that are left in printers can cause startup problems. Do not leave camera cards in printers.
    • Some printers that have media card readers might contribute to startup problems when used with computers that have older BIOS versions. Updating the BIOS on the computer may resolve the problem. For further information about how to find and download BIOS updates for your HP or Compaq computer, please refer to Updating the BIOS.
  7. If the problem still exists, continue to the next step.
