Hope u mean u have reinstalled xp on your computer. After re installation you need to install the motherboard drivers and the driver for your audio. You will find these in the disc you received along with the motherboard. Lemme know whether this works for you. Thanx n regards

    well, to be frank that's the standar procedure for a correct OS instal. Do it once correctly then you won't have to bother till your next re installation.

Have you tried some external powered speakers or even some headphones?
The problem may just be a dead speaker in your case or even a loose or misplaced jumper wire from the speaker to the motherboard.
Good luck, hope this helps. Post back if you're still stuck.

Windows won't start


Hi,

When you put in the XP CD and it boots off the cd, the XP setup files copy across, and at the 1st screen, you should be able to choose Repair. Press r, and this will start the Recovery Console.

When you are in the recovery console, choose your Windows installation (You will see what I mean when you follow the instructions.)

When you are sitting at the command line(C:\>Windows), access your CDROM drive by typing the letter followed by a colon, eg "D:". It may also be E:, F:, or G:.

When you have changed to the CDROM drive, type the following:

cd\ <enter>
cd\i386 <enter>
expand pci.sy_ C:\pci.sys <enter>
C: <enter>
cd\ <enter>
copy pci.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers <enter>
If it asks to replace, confirm.

Then restart the computer.

Regards
Riztech

Acer Desktop Veritron M460 will not load Windows XP or Vista!


This problem may occur if the Ntfs.sys file is missing or becomes corrupted when you convert your hard disk to NTFS To resolve this problem, replace the missing or corrupted Ntfs.sys file:
  1. Use the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted, and then press ENTER. If no administrator password exists, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command): cd \windows\system32\drivers

    ren ntfs.sys ntfs.oldNote This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: copy cd:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\driversWhere cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD, anddrive is the drive where you installed Windows XP.
  7. Remove the Windows XP CD from your CD-ROM drive, type quit at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
  8. Restart the computer.I hope this helps.The other thing I can think of is maybe your harddrive needs a raid driver.If this is a sata drive and an old version of you os,the sata driver may not be already on the disk and you will have to insert one.Let me know if the first solution works,if not we can try the raid driver.

Altec Lansing Sound On Sony Vaio Not Working


Are you running Windows XP?

I recently had a customer with a similar problem on an XP desktop; I tried all sorts of fixes before finding the answer in an online forum - it was a problem with the 'Software Enumerator' see the link below and look for a post by 'Jurekos'

http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-34101-The-driver-has-been-enabled-but-has-not-been-started.html

Or follow the summarised steps below:

- FIRSTLY CREATE A RECOVERY POINT IN CASE IT DOESN'T WORK AND YOU NEED TO UNDO CHANGES -

1. Check if PnP SW Enumerator is installed on your machine (Device Manager / System devices) - it should be listed there!

2. If it is not there then we will probably solve it!

3. Locate "machine.inf" on your OS, copy it somewhere and modify it as follows:
(find "ExcludeFromSelect=*" and remove the line or simply exclude it from processing by adding a ";" at the beginning)

4. Check the "machine.inf" file for location where SWENUM should be located (mine was reading: SWENUM.CoInstallers.CopyFiles = 11 ; %windir%\System32)

5. Find "swenum.sys" file on your XP installation CD (mine was in DRIVER.CAB) and copy it to the proper location (I am not sure if it is necessary but worked for me) You could also copy this file from someone else's Working copy of Windows XP if you don't have your installation CD

6. Go to Control Panel /Add Hardware and follow the wizard towards manual selection of device to be added

7. Select Add System device

8. Select Have disk

9. Navigate to changed machine.inf

10. from the list select standard devices (in the left list) and "Plug and Play Software Enumerator" in the right list

11. Finish the installation

If it still does not work reinstall the audio adapters' drivers

Post a reply if you don't understand any of the steps listed and I'll try to explain in more detail
Good Luck - John

Windows xp installer problem


Jack,

Do you know what it's trying to install? The status bar at the top of the browser should be prompting you with the name of the package.

Are you sure it's the browser and not windows trying to install something? Run Windows update and be sure everything is current. You may have to run & reboot a few times before your machine is up to date.

Boot into the recovery console and run; chkdsk /r Note the space between dsk and /r. If you are unsure of how to get into the recovery console, and have access to a Windows CD; 1. Boot the computer with the Windows CD 2. Select the option to enter the recovery console 3. At the prompt, type CHKDSK /R and press enter (this may take a while). If you do not have access to a Windows CD, but DO have access to a working system with a CD-R or CD/RW, download the XP Recovery Console CD ISO* and burn it to CD using DeepBurner (or whichever application you have that supports such (DeepBurner, Nero, MagicISO etc)). http://archives.mysteryfcm.co.uk/?f=System/Diagnostics/XP_Recovery_Console_CD_ISO * This CD ISO will load pretty much the same as the XP installation program but will NOT provide installation options, ONLY the recovery console. This can be used regardless of whether you are using 2000, XP, 2003 or Vista. Once you have the ISO burnt, boot the computer using the CD and go to the recovery console. Once at the recovery console, type the following and press enter; CHKDSK /R
