Hp pavillion m7680n win xp freezes


The problem seems to be with RAM. Remove your RAM after switching the PC off and clean the contacts array carefully with a dry cloth, rub a little if required with a slightly coarse cloth. Put it back, hopefully will solve your problem.

Computer keeps rebooting after i installed the audio drivers


It sounds like you may have installed the wrong drivers and what is actually happening is that you are getting an error message but the system is set to automatically restart.

I would recommend booting into safe mode and either uninstall or rolling back the sound driver. While in safe mode you will also want to disable automatic restart so you will see error messages when the system goes to reboot.

To do this right-click on My Computer and go to properties; click on the Advanced tab then choose the settings button under Startup and Recovery. Remove the check mark from the box next to Automatically restart.

You will then want to try installing this driver linked below if you are using Windows XP.

Mouse stops responding AOpen M-BJ69 suddenly stops responding sometimes for a few seconds sometimes i have to reboot to get it working again


I'm thinking there are some programs running in the background that shouldn't be running.
From Win XP, click on START>RUN and type msconfig
In Vista, just type msconfig in the space above the start button
Now go to the startup tab and uncheck the programs that are running at startup. Don't worry--you are not uninstalling them, just telling them not to run at startup. You can keep the ones that run your video and antivirus things like that. If you don't recognize them, don't worry. You can always go back into msconfig and check them to allow them to start up.
This will take some time, as it's a process of elimination.
This should fix it.

Windows xp installer problem


Jack,

Do you know what it's trying to install? The status bar at the top of the browser should be prompting you with the name of the package.

Are you sure it's the browser and not windows trying to install something? Run Windows update and be sure everything is current. You may have to run & reboot a few times before your machine is up to date.

Sound problem


If you're talking about Windows XP, the volume control is available from the Control Panel under Sounds and Audio Devices; place a check-mark by the Place Volume in Task bar.

If you don't have Win XP, you can try to reinstall your sound icon by going to Control Panel -> Add / Remove Programs, Windows Setup tab and then double click the Multimedia icon and place a checkmark on Volume Control. If it's already there, take the checkmark off, then click OK. Then go back in again and place the check mark on.
This will hopefully reset it.
