Question about Compaq Audio card Sound Card

2 Answers

Hello! Just weeks ago I had to re-install windows xp to my computer. However, after i reinstalled it, I discovered the version I have is an older version of windows than I had before. As a result, I now have no sound that comes out when i try to play music or a video. After trying to troubleshoot the problem i discovered I now do not have an appropriate sound card or mixer device to play anything. It is available but it simply won't start. I've tried everything from updating the hardware to even looking for a new sound card for my computer. Nothing seems to work. I have a compaq presario sr1603wm and I bought it about three years ago. Even though my computer is newer than the windows program i have, I feel I should'nt have this problem. I love listening to music and now I feel deprived. help!

If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.

I have a US 122 USB audio midi interface wich worked fine with windows 2000 now I have windows 7 and how can I make it work


Try the driver for Vista (including x64) from http://tascam.com/product/us-122//downloads/ . It's version 3.40. You may need to use the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer after you extract the contents of the .zip file. Then choose Properties and select the Compatibility tab. Check the box for Run this program in the compatibility mode and select an older OS version. Then click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator.

The other options is to use the Tascam US-122 with a computer with an older OS or upgrade to a Win7 compatible model. If you try an older version of Windows, you can use a second computer, a dual boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

You might find it difficult to get hold of windows XP keys since Microsoft stopped selling it.
If you get on google and search for something called TinyXP (rev09). I think that this willl solve your problem.
