It is possible that you are missing the audio drivers for WinXP.
Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Manage".
Go down to "Device Manager" and look for "Sound, video, and game controllers".
See if any of the items listed has a yellow exclamation mark or red "x" next to it.
That's your culprit.
(A red "x" means that the device is disabled. Double-click on it and at the bottom of that window you can enable the device.)
Go to Everex' support page (here), choose your model and download the necessary driver(s).

If your specific model is not in the list, try something similar and download that driver - they are often identical or at least interchangeable.

When I start the laptop (HP HDX 16) I get this messege: Boot device not found Error codes Hard Disk-(3F0) pleas install an operating system on your hard disk. F2 system diagnostic. but it does not install...


The Windows edition listed in BIOS (Vista) is referring to the operating system that came with the computer. BIOS's System Diagnostics will always say the OS is Vista, because that is the original OS that HP put on the system. BIOS itself, however, cannot detect an operating system on the new Hard Drive because there is no operating system. In order to get an operating system, you have a couple options:

Depending on the terms and length of your warranty, you may be able to get HP to reinstall the operating system back onto the new Hard Drive. The amount you would pay depends on the warranty. Many warranties, however, become void when you change physical components in the computer (especially with laptops). If this is the case, you will have to try the next option.
You can buy a retail copy of Windows either online or from an electronics store. The price will depend on what edition you purchase, but it will probably cost you at least $100 US.
You can install a Linux operating system on your Hard Drive. If you've never heard of Linux, it is an operating system based on much of the same code as Mac operating systems, but has a more "Windows-like" feel to it. Linux operating systems are NOT the same as windows, and some programs that work in Windows will not work in Linux; you would need to find the Linux counterpart for these programs. One of the best things about Linux operating systems are that they are absolutely free to download, install and use. A very popular and stable Linux operating system is Ubuntu, which can be found at: http://www.ubuntu.com/

How can i get a new main software disk for my Everex Stepnotenm3900w?


Everex filed for bankruptcy, and was acquired by NewMarket Technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everex

As far as I know the company does not deal with Restoration Disk/s for the Everex line of computers.

I have two suggestions, but may not be what you want. (Don't shoot the messenger, lol!)

One;
Buy a fresh, new genuine copy of Windows Home Edition. The same version that was on the computer, install it. When asked, YES, you want to keep the old files that are on there. (Assuming you wish to save personal information that is on the laptop. If not perform a Full Installation)

You may have to go into the BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.
This forces the computer to boot off of the disk in the optical drive.
(Windows doesn't like to write over a previous operating system, with the same version of operating system.
If it was an upgrade to Windows 7 per se, it would be alright)

Two;
Download Ubuntu, and install it for free.
A whole new world through a Linux operating system.

B) Ubuntu on an old laptop,

Shows the 3D desktop graphical features.
(I'm not too keen on the choice of music. OH, did I say that outloud? lol!)

C) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfdVxPqV8Fs

Just some suggestions.

New operating system


When starting the computer, you need to enter the boot menu or set the machine to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive in the bios or utilities set up. Once you've done this, be sure the disc is in the drive upon start up. Then follow the directions.Keep in mind that the XP disc may not have all of the drivers or your machine, so you will have to go to Everex's support site and download them. You can see which drivers you may need in the device manager. Also, when updating XP, only install service pack 2, do not install three, it has issues and is really not needed.

Everex gOS 2 operating system labtop with a C7-M processor


Its gOS Linux operating system based off Ubuntu 7.10. It takes some time to get used it, I believe the gOS resembles an Apple OS more then a Windows OS. So it will take some time getting used to. No one can explain how to use it through a single post. Your best bet would be to sign up and post over at ubuntuforums.org its a big community that will provide lots of help for your operating system.
