Question about PC Laptops

Sound card A local person advertising to fix laptops fixed mine by reinstalling the operating system with XP professional and i usually had xp home. When i got it back i had no sound and on further inspection it said that the sound card was not installed or the driver wasnt installed or something similar. I was wondering is there any solution to this problem or a way to get the sound card working again.

    Thanks for your reply

    I do have a licensed copy of windows xp home however the laptop didnt provide a reboot cd and they wanted me to buy one off them and the person advertisong to fix laptops was cheaper than buying the cd so i decided to let him fix it which i now know was a mistake.

    I dont know if the drivers will be on the net as i live in ireland and its an irish laptop. The make and model number are:

    Iqon
    Model number: 332
    Marketing name: QOM 5025

    Thanks for your help

That was a dodgy job,
the licence for windows XP installed by this guy is not genuine and can get you in troubles with Windows updates.
If you have a valid Windows XP licence (check the sticker at the base of your laptop), you should reinstall XP home using the licence number on the sticker.
If you do not have a licence, well I cannot talk here...

Regarding the sound, that is not a big problem, you just need to download and reinstall the drivers for your laptop.

Post a new question on Fixya, giving details on your laptop make and model, you will get the link to download for drivers.

I will be offline for the following few hours.

Don't forget to rate the solution appropriately.

Thanks

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

THE VISTA ON MY ACER ASPIRE 3680-2680 HAD PROBLEMS


Hi,

If you have no support discs & did not make a recoverty disc then you will have to contact the retailer you purchased the laptop from or Acer themselves. You should have documentation that will detail your product key though without this you may have issues getting the genuine copy of vista reinstalled. An alternative would be to buy a copy of windows 7 (if your laptop can take it) as it is far more stable & streamlined than Vista. or get a genuine copy of XP for cheaper.

Its probably also a good idea to take it back to the local computer guy & demand he reinstalls vista or gives you a genuine copy of XP. You can report him to the police for distributing illegal software too.

The only fix (that I know of) is to do a repair install using an XP Pro CD. You could try to borrow one from a friend of coworker, or ask an IT person at work (if you have one), as they are certain to have one. Put it in your drive, make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD, and when the menu comes up, press ENTER to select "Install Windows XP Professional", and then select "R" for a repair install. From there, it will look like you are reinstalling XP, but it is in fact just repairing the one on your hard drive (make sure you have an XP key [usually located on the bottom of the laptop] before you do this, as you will need one).

Sorry that that doesn't really help if you don't have an XP CD, but without one, there isn't too much you can do without a lot of technical/command line expertise.
