Computer sound. Check if speakers are working at another computer.. If so check that speakers mini jack are connected in right socket.(a dot with 3 brackets at 2 sides.) , should be a green socket fitted in a green female socket.. Still no sound install drivers and software that comes with motherboard, usually work 99%. There?s specific files needed for functionality depending on sound software that windows doesn?t have. If still no sound go to control panel, system,, hardware, device manager, sound video game controllers and uninstall all sound drivers. Reboot and let windows pickup up onboard sound and install drivers auto. if still no sound reinstall windows, make sure you?re not selecting new or format your hard drive, Ask someone that has done it before. This solves usually all my problems. If still no sound buy a separate souncard, they are cheap and use the disk that?s supplied.

Do windows 7 drivers exist for Tekram DC390F?


The information that I can find indicates that Tekram stopped making drivers for this card with windows 2000. It is likely, that it was natively supported in vista with generic drivers. Due to the age of this card, it is unlikely that you will find drivers that will work reliably in windows 7.

RUNNING A SATA HDD ON AN IDE ONLY MOTHERBOARD


If I am not completely mistaken you have to reinstall the OS on the SATA drive on IDE. That is because the first installation was configured for connection on a SATA /PCI then now on the SATA/IDE port converter.

Check your hardware listing-it may have uninstalled itself. You may find in the future if you happen to reinstall your pc with windows that it fixes itself. It may need updated drivers-look up the hardware spec and update the drivers for the card reader

Can't read SM 128 card on Vista or XP


The solution was that the SmartMedia card I was using seems to have been corrupted. It works perfectly well in my device to record music, but cannot be read through either of my computers. However, another SmartMedia Card does work and I have been able to download files, so it must be the card. The manufacturer of the MRS-4 recording device, ZOOM, say that they know of no way to repair the corrupted card.
Best wishes,

How do I use a sandisk SD card to attach pictures to email?


if you are using windows and attach your memory card via a card reader or camera it will be given a drive letter, go to my computer (or computer in vista) and look for the extra drive letter if you are unsure what letter it is, open one of them until you find your pictures, open your email and compose one as normal then click attach or add files, there should be something like browse folders or files, click that and look for the drive letter where the photos are and add them at will, copies of the pictures will then be pulled from the card onto your email. good luck

How do i fix my external hard drive? it makes a clicking sound and there is a red blinking light that goes on it, it also sounds like a scratching sound.


HI, this is a sign of a dead hard drive. this cannot be fix unfortunately. The clicking is coming from the tracking assembly. there is a scanning arm that has a attached reader lens on it. the arm is connected to a tracking motor and gear assembly as well. this entire assembly has failed. the complete replacement of this unit is needed. there are no in house procedures for this type of hardware failuer.

Sudden Hard Drive stop


Your hard drive may be intermittenly faulty, any abnormal sounds from a hard drive is not good. I would connect your hard drive to an USB adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port and do a Disk cleanup and defrag, if possible run disk diagnostic program on the hard drive. If the hard drive proved OK then you may have a faulty IDE controller or faulty IDE cable, check the BIOS battery voltage, may need a new one.

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?


This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.
