Sound driver not working properly

Sometimes a modem or network card will use the same interrupt as the sound card. Look at any control panels for the two devices for an option to change the interrupt for one of the devices. Also look in the Device Manager under Network adapter, and Sound, for the devices' Properties, see if there's an option to change interrupts there.

Blue button flashing

The reason why the button is flashing is cause the power supply is not putting out the right voltages and the motherboard can't power on.

Best thing to do is to see if you can try a different known good power supply and hook up the connectors to the motherboard only and see if it turns.

This usually takes care of the problem. I have also seen it where the motheboard is bad on rare occasion. To verify the motherboard after trying a different power supply is to make sure there is no cards in the pci slot and makes sure none of the drives are connected and the only cables that should be connected to the motherboard is the power supply.

Hope this helps and let me know if you need extra help.

HP Pavilion 760 pci device

hi, when you see the yellow of PCI devices this means you have to check all the cards that connect to your board as PCI, so this could be sound card, vedio card, modem or any pci card, just double check with your pci cards, so if you have pci sound or vedio see if the driver there if not will be one of them, But many times people doesnot recognize that they have extra pci card which could be for usb use, or output devices, etc...
