Hi rosemarie, as I said, you need to tell us the model number, so that we can address you to the right download.

What driver can i use to work with my windows XP


You can download the sound card driver for your model sound card for Windows XP from the sound card manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to this WEB site because you did not provide details of the make and model of your sound card.

Forgot my password


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Internal laptop speakers do not make sounds....i have opened the control panel looked at the sound set up..tested everything and it showed the speakers are working but still no sounds..please help...


If you're running Windows 7 or Windows Vista, click the Start button, clickControl Panel, click System and Security, and then, under System, click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
If you're running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, in the left pan click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed.
If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card in Device Manager, there might be a problem.
Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
If there is a problem with the sound device, it will be stated, and you might need to update your driver for the sound card.
You can double left click on the device marked and click the "Drivers" tab and select "Update Driver Button" to see if this will update the driver.
If this was successful, then restart your computer.

Sound can not be played on my system and asked about audio out put device


this is happening when the sound card has no driver ...probably you downgraded to xp from vista or windows 7 and now you do not have the suitable driver for xp...
If this is a brand computer ...than you can look on the manufacturer's site for the sound driver ....(for xp) if it is not...and it is a desktop....open it and take a look at the sound card if it is a pci card...and let me know the name ..and model...if it is an on board card ..than I need the motherboard name ...
If the computer came with a driver disk ..and always used Xp ..but now you just reinstalled it ...look for the sound driver on the mother board disk ..or separate disk if it has a PCI card ..
(the pci card for sound is just a separate card ..that is inserted in a pci slot ..that is why its called that way ...and its different from a on board ..one just by that...The on board cards..always have the drivers on the disk that came with the motherboard..)
Im waiting for an answer and will see whats to do further..

Hello! Just weeks ago I had to re-install windows xp to my computer. However, after i reinstalled it, I discovered the version I have is an older version of windows than I had before. As a result, I now...


If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.
