Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook
Windows media player cannot play because it says there is a problem with your sound device. it says there may not be a sound device installed on my computer.
Ok. Well then all you need is to update your drivers. There is software
available to do this for you, but you will have to pay. This makes life
easier, but its not necessary. If you choose this option, I recommend uni blue driver scanner.
You can also use the device manager to update your drivers. Follow the steps provided before to reach the device manger but this time, right click on the unidentified devices and select update drivers. A new window will open prompting you to either look for drivers online or in a chosen directory, search online. In my own experiance, I've noticed this methoded usually doesn't give the best results.
If you can find out exactly what the unidentified devices are then you can search for the drivers online at the manufacturers website.
If this is a company distributed laptop or desktop (e.g. HP, DELL, Sony), well, then your in luck, you won't have to know the names of the devices, as long as you didn't change any hardware in your computer.
For example, I am using a Compaq Presario F761US notebook pc.
I would go to www.hp.com > Support & Drivers > Download drivers and software (and firmware) > and search for my product. Compaq Presario F761US. Then select my operating system, Vista.
This is the result.
As you may have noticed, the drivers for all of the hardware that come with this pc appears on the page.
You can do the same for your laptop or desktop or if you provide the Manufacturer and the Model Number, I can provide links to the drivers you need for you.
A note on the recovery disk, that suggestion will work as well if you have not altered the hardware, but it will restore everything to the factory default, thus you will loose all of your data. Use this option if you don't mind loosing data and if your having performance trouble.
