Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

No sound! Just weeks ago, I had to re-install windows xp to my compaq presario sr1603wm computer. After doing this, I discovered not only the windows program I have now is an older version than what I originally had , but I have all of the appropriate players to play things on the internet however I have no sound! I guess my thing is when I try to troubleshoot the problem, Windows says i have no sound card or appropriate mixer device so therefore, the volume control option is not available. It reconizes the hardware I have or need but it just won't start.I've tried everything from unstalling to reinstalling the hardware to even trying to look for sound cards all together. Any possible suggestions on what to do about this? my pc stopped producing sound.i tried to reinstall the driver but it could not work.my sound device is Intel Intel(R) 82801BA/BAM AC '97 Audio Controller. the volume mixer menu went away.,when i try playing anyting it reports an error(no mixer devices found).my system summary is: operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_qfe.080423-1303) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Compaq System Model: EVO BIOS: 686Y2 v2.06 Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.00GHz Memory: 256MB RAM Page File: 189MB used, 429MB available Windows Dir: C:WINDOWS DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) DX Setup Parameters: Not found DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.5512 32bit Unicode ------------ DxDiag Notes ------------ DirectX Files Tab: No problems found.

Ok, is your sound card an onboard (included with *********** board) or not. If it is not onboard sound card, i suggest to remove it from the motherboard and then clean the contacts with pencil eraser (rubber) use the eraser to remove the carbon and dust that accumulated in the sound card contacts. reinstall it and reintall back the driver. it should work by then. Or if you have an onboard sound device try to go to the CMOS setup of the motherboard and make sure that the onboard sound device is enabled in CMOS.

I have a compaq sr1603wm and I was wondering what motherboard I can use to replace the stock one and if I would need to replace the power and or fan thanks..


You need and AMD motherboard that supports the Sempron processor -939 Socket. It's a little difficult to find them now, but they are still available. Since you have a brand computer. You make have to give up some perks like front usb port or the audio cable might be too short to mount on the new board. Be prepared for some compromise when installing a different board.

Your computer is infected with a virus. The only solution for that problem is that you should reformat your hard disk and install a new copy of Operating System to it again. If you do have important files on that drive, you can back-up them by plugging it to another computer and there you will the content of you drive. Hope this will you..Thanks..

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.

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.
