Question about Computers & Internet
I have recently installed new hard disk and now i am now getting a p message that sound device not installed. i do not have any other disk except operating system (XP) disk. pls help me to solve this problem?
First what you need to know what brand of sound card is ..,
This you will be able to know from Control panel -> sounds and Audio devices option
once u know the Type, U can down load it from net or
the very easiest is to take any Mother Board CD from some of ur collegues and run the
setup.exe from [sound] Folder in the CD
I think the soundcard present on ur mother board is not Avance AC'97, Xp comes with default drivers of Avance AC'97 Drivers.
this will solve ur problem...,

This error message
- "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" means -
The PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard
disk or floppy drive.
Check the floppy drive and remove and floppy disk.
If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it is a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect the hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.
