Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a compaq Presario that came with windows 98SE.Recently I Upgraded it to Windows XP Pro SP2.Since then My ESS Integrated Audio Card can't load.I keep getting the message ESS PCI audio controller can't be found. I then downgraded it back to Windows 98 SE thinking that would solve the problem but it did not.So this is my dilema right now.My computer can't locate the card.Any Idea what might have had caused that problem?

Hi your computer is not seing the driver of your sound card, you may need to download updated driver for it, you can search for the drivers of your sound card online, you can also find that on the computer manufacturers website.

to see the status of your devices go to device manager for more info.

right click on my computer icon>properties>hardware tab>device manager.

you can also uninstall, reinstall, and update device drivers here.

hope this helps.

WINDOWS XP SP2 DRIVERS FOR COMPAQ PRESARIO DESKTOP SG3510IL


I checked the Compaq website and since this system was built for Windows Vista they do not have any drivers available for Windows XP. If you know the individual componets of your computer you could try each component manufacturer to see if they have available drivers for XP. Sorry.

The drivers on the HP site are for Windows 98, Me. Try the drivers off the ESS site. Find the appropriate Allegro driver for Windows XP (or try each of them). Good Luck.

BIG BOOT PROBLEM!!!!


You should have erased the system root directory,( the Windows XP installed drive). the boot sector still has the winxp boot information, but does not finds any file on the drive, were they are supposed to be.

You have to Install a fresh copy of winxp, with the winxp boot cd.
