I've somehow managed to delete my sound device on my windows vista pc. Where can i download a new one for free and whats the best one to get?


You didn't delete the sound device itself... You deleted the software telling your computer how to run the physical sound device on your motherboard. If you know what the name of the one you have is.. you can go out to the manufacturers website and download it's drivers. If your using a Major brand computer chances are the drivers exist at the computer manufactures website under their support section for the model of computer you have.

Computer wont reconize it


since you have not stated what your computer fails to recognize here is a guide
control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager any yellow? ! question marks or red x will tell you that you need to reinstall the driver/s
to do this right click on the ? x ! select reinstall driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd-rom then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Dvd driver shows yellow excclamation mark error code 41computer novice any simple suggestions would be appreciated


"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

Because of this error, the drive did not show up in My Computer and the customer was unable to burn CDs or read any CDs.

I uninstalled the drive from Device Manager, rebooted the computer, and the problem remained, so obviously it appeared to be a registry issue that I would have to solve. If you are receiving this Code 39 error and your CD or DVD drive is missing and has a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager, I hope this information is useful.

To solve this Code 39 error, follow these instructions:

NOTE: After removing these registry keys and rebooting, it may be necessary to reinstall any CD or DVD recording applications.

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor

7) Reboot
your computer

8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

I have installed a new floppy hard drive but my pc does not recognise it. how do i activate it? and why is the green light always on even without a floppy inside it?


Get into your bios and enable the "A" drive in the bios if you haven't already. It has to show up in the bios for it to show up in the device manager in windows. Start at the bios and work up to the device manager and reinstall floppy drivers if needed.

My DVD R-WR is not reading the DVDs inserted in it.


First check the device manager to see if the drive is listed or has a yellow !. See if any error code is listed, ie. error code 39. If it does then it is a driver problem. Try reinstalling the driver/software package that came with your dvd drive. If none of these are present then try using a good quality dvd cleaner in the drive. After cleaning use a known good dvd to see if the drive is working. If all these fail then try uninstalling the drive using the remove hardware function from the control panel. After it is uninstalled reboot the computer & see if the drive automatically reinstalls. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Cd/dvd


Try deleting it from the Device Manager and rebooting. If Windows has eaten the driver, it will try to reinstall it during the reboot.
Follow this sequence:

- Start
- Control Panel
- System
- Hardware
- Device Manager

Locate the entry for DVD/CD-ROM Drives and expand the listing.
Highlight the drive(s) and delete them.

If the Plug & 'Pray' is working, Windows will 'find' a new device and install the basic drivers for it.
