Question about Compaq (283983-001) Motherboard
E machine i have lost everything tried sys. restore still nothing
This unfortunately sounds like a hardware problem on the motherboard itself. This may be especially true if the sound, ethernet, etc. no longer even show up in the windows device manager. You might try rebooting the computer, entering the setup BIOS page, selecting the "setup defaults", typically F7, or F9, or other, there should be a "menu", save and exit. If that clears up the problem, great. If not, you might try a PCI ethernet card, sound card, and USB, to have those things back. Otherwise I am afraid you may be up for a replacement motherboard or another computer. If replacing the motherboard, try to find an exact replacement so windows doesn't have to be re-installed.
I also highly recommend backing up any files you want to keep before taking any of the steps previously mentioned.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
