I have no sound device installed after system clean up.
At first my laptop would not boot, it would just blink like it was and go to a page like it was in 28 seconds. so i had a friend who knows something about fixing that, and she did. now i have no sound or wireless card or any thing that is usually automatic on computers. when i try to troubleshoot it still says no sound device installed. please tell me how to get my sound back.

the Ubuntu ISO that you choose for you pc needs to be selected (x86 for normal 32 bit pc or x64 for 64bit devices ) download the ISO and burn to cd or DVD your choice. when you running XP insert the disk and it gives you a option to install aside xp or to partition the drive to add ubuntu separately or to do a clean install ( wiping everything ) or boot up with it and it will help partition the XP drive to install alongside xp to do a dual boot.. this can be easy or hard id get a tutorial on this. but the clean install is the easiest and best it wipes out the drive and I'm almost sure everything will work when it comes on look up the model laptop and ubuntu 11.04(newest ) all my devices work all the time and the software is awesome as well as free and virus free good luck google installing ubuntu for noobs
Sounds like you may have to change the boot up drive in your bios.
To enter you bios, you have hit Del or an F key as your computer begins to boot up (watch the screen, it should tell you).
Once you've entered your bios, you have to find where in the bios it allows you to set the order of boot devices. This is commonly under "Power Up" options or on the more recent BIOSes, it'll be under "Boot Devices." Once you're there, refer to the on screen instructions on how to change the order. The most common ways are using the page up/down keys, the +/- keys or the left and right arrows. Set your Seagate Barracuda to be the first place it boots from and you should be able to boot from it.
1.Disconnect all external devices (printers, USB hubs, USB drives, etc...) and then boot up.
If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue.Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.
2. Use the"Last known good configuration" from the Windows Advanced Options menu. If this option resolves the issue then look for any updates or software installs that may have caused the problem.
3. Boot to Safe Mode from the Windows Advanced Options menu. If you can get into safe mode then the issue could be driver or software related. From within Safe Mode run a System Restore. 4. Perform a Clean Boot.
sounds like your system is corrupted. Put you install disc in and boot up holding the c key down on your keyboard. Once it has booted up go to your hard drive and open up the system folder and then move the system file and the finder file into the trash. Go back to your install menu and click install make sure you do not do a clean install as you will wipe all your data. Preserve your users. Once it is installed it will put a new system and finder file on your machine. You may need to probably need to set up various items as they will have returned to default. Hope this helps.
Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change
the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive.
Check your system documentation for steps to access bios the and change the boot order. Also some PC let you select the boot device by hitting f12 when the system is booting up, if this is the case make sure your window cd is in then boot from your cd or dvd drive
Once you have made this change in your bios you will see press any key to install from your xp cd
press ender to start the Windows Setup.
Do not choose "To
repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, pressR", (you do not want to load Recovery Console).
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R
to start the repair.
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and
reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message
appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install,
but your applications and settings will remain intact.
You can't delete your system unless you are installing a new OS. If you are trying to do that, you need a disk with OS installation on it, insert it, restart your computer, go into BIOS and under BOOT SETTINGS choose your cd-dvd rom for the first boot device. Press F10, and then YES After rebooting, your computer will start a boot from the ****. Afterwords, just follow the instructions, and that's it.
seems your file system was corrupted. try to boot your laptop through cd..installation would show the partition details. here just check all partition are in gud file system. if it shows like "unknown" u need to format the partition. if u have any important data in that partition just connect that hdd as a secondary disk and try to copy the data's
