What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Sound is not comming when i change window XP from window vista


Your PC requires a more recent soundcard device driver that is compatible with Windows Vista.

You can download the required driver here-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html#driver


Please be aware that there is a different driver for Microsoft vista sp1 and above as opposed to Microsoft Vista. SP means service Pack which is a combination of updates supplied by Microsoft to make your operating system more reliable, secure etc.

If you do not know whether you have SP 1 installed, click on the start menu, right click on the computer and click on properties. Your Windows operating system is now described in the top of the window. It will say something like Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Vista SP1.

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.


Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

Plugging in Mic ceases sound playback


The drivers are working, but you apparently have a non asynchronous driver, meaning it either records, or plays, but has trouble doing both.

Gamers usually like their sound a bit beefier than the standard AC97 chip common with mainboards can produce, I would suggest first making absolutely sure your machine is clear of virii, etc,, turn off the windows sounds, because most earlier built-in sound chips cannot multi-client, and if you still have the problem, go for a USB sound box like the M-audio Transit, for around $100, it will give you high definition sound, both in and out, and you won't have to open your PC to install it.

Mind, I am not a shill for M-Audio, but for gamers, you really need the 24bit/96KHz out, to match your game's audio.

You will also find your games may run more smoothly, as the audio role is now in the little box, rather than your CPU.

The digital out can go to your home theater system, the 5.1 really makes it more fun.

Choppy audio windows vista


If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

Sound drivers or sound card not working


in control panel go to sound and audio devices. in this you can test all the audio hardware and mic also.
under voice tab there is also an option for test hardware.

you said that you cannot use the mic in skype or google talk. i think that you didn't configure the mic properties in those software.
just go to start->all programs->accessories->entertainment->sound recording. just record ur voice using mic. if it works then the problem is with the configuration of the software skype and gtalk
hope this helps.
