    Thanks for your response.
    I can see the desktop but there is no sound though the sound
    card is attached. In the hardware section of the device manager
    it states as other devices but there is no monitor seen. If I connect
    the same monitor to a pc having windows vista it works well ie
    audio is heard and also in the device manager it states as monitor 1707. Hope clarification will help solve my problem.

    or you are getting No video signal atall.

    Not sure what you mean by not detected - can you see the desktop?

IF you have a built in Video card and/or sound card, and are trying to use PNP cards for better performance. You may have to go into the cmos and disable the onboard devices.

Problem with dvd/cd ram does not detected cd


CD Recording software that comes with HP and Compaq computers is made to recognize only the original CD and DVD drives. If a new CD or DVD writable drive was added, use the software that came with the drive or purchase and use new CD writing software. If you are using Windows XP, you can use Windows XP itself to create CDs (not DVDs). CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows If the drive is missing in Windows, remove all connected USB, firewire, and parallel devices and perform the following steps to enable the drive in Windows: Step 1: Checking for CD/DVD drive in BIOS Make sure the drive appears in Setup. The drive has to be detected in the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) before Windows can see the drive. Check for detection as follows:
  1. Turn on the PC. When the first logo screen appears, press the F1 key repeatedly until the BIOS Setup screen appears (on some models this key press may be different, F2 or Del )
  2. Press the F5 key, and then press the Enter key to reset the BIOS to the defaults.
  3. Use the Left and Right Arrow keys to select Main .
  4. The hardware-identifying name should appear next to Secondary Master, Secondary Slave, or Primary Slave.
