Question about Graphics Publishing, Design & Multimedia Software

No sound on my computer.

Hello, I bought my computer approximately may 2007 and since downgrading from Windows Vista to windows XP I have no sound or any sound drivers. I looked up my computer on the U.S. website and they didn't even list my computer. I also looked on the U.K. version of the site where it did actually list my computer. I have downloaded the sound driver that it has told me to download but still no sound.

My computer is an E-machines E4216. The original operating system was Windows Vista Home Basic but it is now Windows XP I think it is Home Pack 2 although I am not 100% sure.

Please help it is driving me crazy not having any sound!

Thanks No audio

A good idea is to check one of two things:
1) upon startup check the BIOS, it gives you an idea of what soundcard you are using.
2) open up the box and check the motherboard and do a google search.

Popular hardware with emachines are ATI and Realtek

How to turn off windows 8/ IE


Windows is hard to get used to.
It might take some time time but its a lot faster than windows 7.
Here are some thing you might try before downgrading to Windows 7
Create toolbars on homepage

Create the menu tab on your homepage open webpage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list Managed add ons
Toolbar extensions Search providers and Accelerators you haveif don't need any of them you can disable or remove them.

Right click in the bottom toolbar (Bottom of Screen) select the toolbars option then Desktop this will add >> arrows in the bottom toolbar select the arrows you will see a list with control panelwhich has another list of all control panel items.
Downgrading to windows 7

When Windows 8 was released, Microsoft touted its advanced features, including a fast bootup time and the capability to use the same operating system for desktops, laptops and tablets.

At the same time, many of the design choices in Windows 8 were controversial and, as with most new operating systems, hardware driver support was initially spotty.

To support customers that prefer Windows 7, Microsoft created a cost-free downgrade path for some versions of Windows 8. If you aren't eligible a free downgrade, though, you have other options. Windows 8 Pro Downgrades
If you have the business-oriented edition of Windows 8, Windows 8 Professional, you have the right to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional, but you will need to have your own Windows 7 CD and product key to do this.

Doing the downgrade consists of installing the older operating system on the computer and then calling Microsoft for permission to activate Windows 7 in the event that the product key had already been used.

There is no charge to do this, but completing the process can be time consuming.

Windows 8 Consumer Downgrades
Consumer versions of Windows 8 don't come with free downgrade rights.
To legally downgrade to Windows 7, you will need to have both a Windows 7 CD and a product license that will allow you to install the operating system.

In other words, you'll have to pay for both operating systems.
If you are looking to buy a new computer and don't want Windows 8, consider buying one that still ships with Windows 7 preinstalled.

Simulating Windows 7
If you don't want to deal with the hassle or potential expense of downgrading, you can re create much of the Windows 7 user interface on Windows 8.

One option is to add third-party software programs like Start8, Classic Shell or StartIsBack to access the Start menu.

You can also tweak your system's settings to automatically boot to your desktop instead of the Windows 8 Start screen while also replacing some of the built-in applications that interface with the Start screen with other ones that are desktop friendly.

Why Not Downgrade
If you need to use a piece of unsupported hardware, you might not have the option of using Windows 8 at all.

As Windows 8 matures, however, more hardware drivers are becoming available.
Given that Windows 8 offers a powerful search tool as well as fast bootup times, it has some real advantages over Windows 7.

If you can either learn how to use the interface or are willing to modify it to better suit your preferences, staying with Windows 8 may be a better option for you.

My wife bought me photo explosion several years ago and I used it on my Windows XP. I recently found it again and installed in on my Windows Vista. I can't get it to open up. Thanks , Joe H.


This is because your software version is not compatible with Vista.

Reinstall,
Try using "Windows Vista Compatibility Mode" for the older software, Link . No assurance it will work!

Hope it helps.

My favourite programme - Print Artist 4 which has worked with all my computers up to and including XP will not work with Windows 7 - what can I do?


It means that this application is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, all you have to do is run the app in XP mode, which is really running an XP virtual machine inside of Windows 7. Just look in Windows help for instructions on how to do it. If you have Home Premium or less, they do not have XP mode. Instead you can download Virtual PC 2007 SP1 from the Microsoft web site for free, install it, then create a virtual machine that uses XP. You will have to have a licensed copy of XP to install on the virtual machine. Then install PrintArtist on the virtual machine and you are ready to go. You can use the virtual machine and Windows 7 on the host system simultaneously and can even exchange data between the two.

If your wanting to downgrade to Windows XP pro, Your going to need to reformat the PC. Simply put the media in the drive restart the computer and boot off the CD-Rom and follow the simple instructions.
