Question about HP Pavilion m7480n (882780389410) PC Desktop

Sound driver Recently our desktop went down because of a power surge. We lost most of the information unfortunately. We have been able to restore a lot of the programs except the sound drivers. We cannot seem to locate the recovery cd. Any advice how to get the sound going again? When I try to access the device manager through safe mode, it will not bring up the safe mode screen at all. I have tried many times. Thank you

    Hi, thank you for your help. I tried what you stated, I downloaded the driver for the media center but it didn't install. It gave me a message of not being able to continue. I made sure I had the right OS and all. There was one driver for BIOS, should I try that? I am just learning these things, thank you.

    I don't recommend updating the bios unless you are comfortable doing so.



    Can you check that your sound card is being recognised by windows. Go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and check to see if you sound card is there, if it is and has a yellow exclamation mark next to it then it is being recognised but has problems.



    Right click it and go to properties, make sure that it is enabled, if it is then go to update driver, and see if this helps

Control button locked. when I turn ooff PC the sleep light will not turn off.


Typically, the computer is defaulted to stay turned off after an electrical outage. To start the computer from scratch again, hold the power button in for several seconds. If it powers off, wait a minute, then hold the button in again to start it. When the screen comes up that says it didn't shut down properly, choose Safe Mode without networking. It will look like it is hanging on several files, normal, let it go. The screen & icons will be large because it is in default VGA mode. Once it stops loading, go to the Start Button & choose Restart. Things will return to your chosen default settings and most things will work again providing you have an EMI/RFI Surge Protector power strip that everything was plugged into. I have had several fail after a power surge, they are supposed to. Some have insurance should you have electrical damage after a power surge that got beyond the strip. Ultimately, $15-$50 is cheaper than your PC &/or monitors damaged by not having one, they are designed to be the Sacrificial Lamb & be the cheap breaking point.

As an added note, people confuse Sleep Mode with Hibernate Mode. Sleep mode means anything you are working on gets suspended into your available memory while it goes into Power Saving mode. On a power loss, all will be lost, save regularly if you use this mode.

Hibernate uses a space on your hard drive to write the information. Power loss, nothing is lost and on waking up or powering back on, your data will still be where you left off, usually intact. To restore from either mode without electrical loss, hit the ESC key. Exceptions will occur if you use Hibernate mode but only have a power strip for your multiple plugs. A power surge can still damage your computer because it wasn't blocked by the EMI/RFI power strip.

How do you know which one you have ? If you only have an On/Off power switch, you have an unprotected power strip. If you have a button on the side of that switch, known as a Reset Switch, you have a protecting one. Even if the Reset Button doesn't restore the power strip, it gave it's blife to protect your computer equipment. Cheap insurance.

Good luck.

I recently went from Windows Vista to Windows XP, and I somehow lost all traces of my sound device.


Vista I admit is not as user friendly as XP.
Download the apropriate drivers from HP. If your 2150 came with Vista you may find that there is no XP driver support!
Hope this helps.

Hp desktop won't turn on


It sounds like you may have lost your power supply due to a surge in the line when the power came back on.
Here's link to some power supplies, I would also invest in a surge protector power strip, to prevent this from happening in the future.

Make sure you get a power supply with the same or higher wattage then the one in your PC, they are fairly easy to replace four screws on the back of the PC and unplug the connections to the PC components inside.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,

Eric.

Information and help


It sounds like you have just recently installed a fresh copy of windows, I would suggest reinstalling again. If not, you can try re-downloading your driver from another location. (My link)

http://www.soundcard-drivers.com/drivers/192/192171.htm

This is a software error message that can be interpreted as such or it can show potential hardware problems. Were you getting a lot of strange errors prior to reinstalling windows? It could be a problem with your math co-processor, memory, hard drive or even low voltages on your power supply. This one may take a bit of work. Good luck
