I attached the G-Max 2000 speakers that were on my XP Gateway to my Windows 7 Gateway. Though the device manager says they're working properly, no sound is coming out.

I cant get the touch pad and mouse to respond long enough to change settings and not sure where to go to do that.


If mouse stops working shortly after booting up, sounds like driver conflicts, reboot and enter Safe Mode (normally press F8 on startup, but key may vary between systems) Drivers can normally not conflict with eachother in Safe Mode, Next enter Device Manager through the control panel and find your tochpad or mouse drivers, typically they will be marked with a yellow warning triangle if they are improperly configured or conflicted, rightclick and select uninstall, scan for hardware changes and let it automatically reinstall the touchpad or mouse drivers.

If driver still not working, there may be old, hidden drivers, some systems may be able to show these by pressing view->show hidden drivers in the device manager, older systems typically windows XP will have to run cmd.exe and type in the following lines to show the 'ghost' drivers:
SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
DEVMGMT.MSC
this will start up device manager with added parameter, you must still enable 'show hidden devices'.

Note: it is pretty safe to uninstall drivers under the sections:
Keyboards
Mice and other pointing devices
Monitors
Network Adapters
Sound, Video and Game controllers
Storage Volumes
Universal Serial Bus controllers

However, understand the risks of uninstalling and editing system components, if you do not have a way to restore your system to factory settings, or reinstall your system completely, of if you have important information stored on the computer, you should thread extra carefull- hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Mass storage controller driver


Greetings,
IDE controller starts to install the driver automatically as soon as you restart. The best way to get it completely removed from your comp is that in case you are using Windows XP or higher version goto Safe mode by tapping the F8 key on the keyboard on restart. goto control panel to Add/ remove programmes and uninstall the software completely. I hope I helped you out.

Regards,
