Hi, you can try these steps:

Audio driver:
First download and install the UAA driver from the following link:
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32646.exe

After installing this, download and install the audio driver from the following link:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

This will create a swsetup folder in C drive ("C:\swsetup\sp34200")

Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click Update driver.
3. Select "Install from a list or specific location"
4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"
5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the list.
6. Click Next and then click Have Disk.
7. Click Browse C:\swsetup\sp34200 folder and select the .inf (wis30b2a) file and click open and Continue with the onscreen instructions.

*Please drop me a comment if there's anything i can do for you.

I have not received emails sent to me in the last three days what steps should i take?


Glad to HELP YOU!

I'd suggest you to do TWO things:
1. to check the BULK/SPAM folder too; maybe the messages got there. It happens sometimes even the senders are people you are communicating with many times;
2. verify if the last few days the server(s) where your e-mail account was created on were not DOWN. It happens too many times - even with well-known web sites. This case you even may write a message to the site administrator (usually the address is something like "admin@web-site.com/net/org/etc.") and ask him if the last few days the servers had had some technical problems.

GOOD LUCK!

My compaq presarios dvd drive is messed up, it freezes dvd movies ive recorded on it. is there a fix? it records cds fine but has problems only recording movies. also sometimes when i put a disc in, the...


Hi brianlcrensh

It sound like you DVD drive is gone :O(
First bee sure that the DVD´s recorded are working normal in another DVD ex at your work. IF yes, then I could bee 2 solutions :
1. you have to less RAM and the processor is a old one and maybe you need to upgrade your machine.

2. your DVD drive is not working. The DVD drive and CD drive are running separately and that means you could still use this drive as a CD drive.
IF the drive is NEW you have the possibility to return it to the store and get a new one without costs.

Normally strange sounds on DVD drives means that the drive is damaged !! Today normally you can get a DVD drive for around 40 $ so making to much Trouble shooting and that drive could make many hours go for only 40 $. My last DVD drive did also make strange sounds and I did chance and now it is working fine.

TO CHANCE THE DVD DRIVE JUST OPEN THE COMPUTER AND REPLACE THE NEW DVD DRIVE IN IT (MAKE SURE THAT THE DVD DRIVE ARE MASTER OR SLAVE, LIKE YOUR OTHER DRIVE) OPEN THE COMPUTER AND IF IT TELLS YOU YOU HAVE A NEW CONFIGURATION THEN PRESS ACCEPT/SAVE TO C-MOS. WAIT A FEW SECONDS WHEN THE COMPUTER IS IN WINDOWS (IT TELLS YOU THAT THE WINDOWS HAS FIND NEW HARDWARE AND AFTER FEW SECONDS IT TELLS YOU THAT THE HARDWARE IS INSTALLED) AND NOW YOU SHOULD HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO USE IT

here is a video to see how to do chance a dvd drive :
