My computer was reformated, but I cant use my Multi media becuse there is no audio device which the program asking for, what shall i do


Not sure if you are saying you dont have a sound card installed or if when you try to play a movie it says it cant play the audio. if it is the later then i advise you intall a few codec packs. starting with divx, then community codec pak, and ac3 filter. these are the most common codecs required for most of the audio in media files. if it asking for an actual hardware sound insure that you have direct x installed as the media center in windows vista uses direct audio to paly the audio tracks in media files.

VISTA is instal in diff disk n it shows diff disk (when its open)


Unlike games which often require the disk to be inserted in order to be able to play them, Vista is your operating system which is, in fact, installed on your C: drive and once it is installed you no longer need the disk in your CD drive.

You can safely remove it, put it in its packaging, and save it for when you have problems that require you to re-install it.

fyi. An operating system is a collection of software that is used to control your computer hardware on one side, and allow you an interface to use it on the other side. The programs you install use the operating system in order to indirectly use the hardware to do what they do. The more popular operating systems in use today are the various flavors of Windows, and also the Mac o/s, Linux, Unix, QNX, Netware and others. They all have strengths that make them the best choice in a given situation.
