Hello, first off all, check if the sound device is activated

Second of all, you have two ways to get your sound driver:

1) Put your IBM cd recover and find there the sound drivers. (Usuallly is a folder with a number)
2) If you don't have the cd, go to ibm webpage at
then go to Support >> "software and drivers" put your machine number and model and get the sound driver there.

After that, you have to download the driver to your laptop, then go to "My PC" >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Audio ----->> and update the driver with the new one. That's it.

Please don't forget to rate my help >> Thank you!

Disc space

Run a disc cleanup also run a program called ccleaner that will free up room. Also delete old files or move them to a backup device. Another option is to get a bigger hard drive clone it using Acronis and put the larger drive in.

My acer netbook "D" drive is nearly full


Go to your drive C:, right-click, scroll down to "properties".

An option will pop-out. Look towards the down part and select Compress...... Then click "this"< then "OK".

This will compress your hard-drive and give you more space.

I hope you understand this.

Good luck.

I cant restore my laptop due to incificient back up data what do I do?

Open My Computer or Computer, go to the C drive. Right click on all the folders, one at a time and select Properties. In the resulting window, check the compress to save space box, then hit Apply or OK. Do NOT do this with the Windows folder.

That should clear quite a bit of space for you.

If this dors not work you may need defrag your laptop. OR maybe you have to many progams on your laptop, so you may need to delete some that you dont use.

This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?

Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.
