Hey, i recently had to install windows xp onto my computer due to the fake version the store supplied us with. Before this happened our speakers were working fine, but ever since we re-installed xp they are not even being recognised. So far we have tried
- Windows troubleshooter
- writing an email to windows but failed to get a reply
- unplugging and turning off the computer, then replugging the speakers back in and turning the computer back on
I feel that my computer is possibly not picking up a driver for my speakers? is that possible?

Re: Speakers are not being recognised
I would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck

Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.
There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.
For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.
This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.
If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.
Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.
This is the name of a common ScareWare virus.
Boot in safe mode with networking. By repeatedly pressing F8 as the pc is booting. (if you see the windows logo try again)
One in safe mode download and install spybot.
Run a scan and you should be good.
control panel sounds and audio,audio make necessary adjustments there or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers good luck
I am assuming you are using one of the newer version of windows, although you don't mention this. There is a free version of paperport you can download over the internet so you might like to try this. With windows you can install 32 bit versions of software onto 64 bit system and they will generally work fine. You should also try using "compatibility" mode which windows uses to help manage programs designed for older version of windows. I have some older software that wont work on anything other than windows XP so I have installed a virtual machine onto my 64 bit computer, then installed windows xp onto the virtual machine, and then installed the software I need to use. This is a bit tedious and time consuming but works perfectly and allows me to use my older software.
You cannot fully recover the data on your hard drive anymore, you can create a recovery disk again after your manual installation of your copy of windows, want help about your drivers? pm me i will assist you firstname.lastname@example.org
You need to purchase a Windows XP or Vista installation disk with its Product installation Code. You can purchase a upgrade version cheaper than the full product, but you need the original ME CD.
You may not be able to purchase Windows XP and Windows Vista may not work efficiently on your computer because of the age of your computer and Vista is very resource hungry.
You may consider purchasing a new computer with Windows 7 as a better option. Windows 7 is due to be released in Oct.
You may need to install the audio drivers for those systems. If the sound is built onto the mainboard, you'll need the motherboard model number to help locate the drivers online. You can look for them yourself through a search engine, or if you'd like, get back to me with the model numbers of the motherboards, and I will locate your drivers. The model number of the motherboard should be printed directly on the motherboard itself.
