Go to Compaq.com and donload the drivers look under support and pick your model number. then reinstall the drivers for your sound card You may also want to refresh installation of avg This will be easier than walking you through the settings and will disprove any other trial and errors before trying.

If you need more help downloading the drivers from compaq comment back and give us the model number we will try from there and post a link if possible.

Problems installing sound drivers on my compaq presario v2000


I have the same model,so you are in luck!! The drivers are really actually already there,you just have to tell the laptop(windows) to "look again",so to speak.Just go to Control panel/hardware/device manager,then righ click on any device listed and then scan for hardware changes.You will see "new harware found",then it will tell you it found multimedia device and continue to load the drivers for you.If it`s the same as mine,it will be ATI integrated digital audio,then you should have sound.Please let me know if it works for you:)

For acer aspire 5535 when i open my set there r massage said at broker.exe applecation error the application failed to install propley(0xc0000142)click ok to teminate the application. when iclick ok said...


I can see that this is a problem with DLL initialisation. This error will occur due to an improper installation and uninstallation of some programs or device. Try reinstalling the files that are required for Windows to run properly, and this must be copied to the DLL Cache. To do this, open cmd by clicking start menu, click run and type cmd in the box.

After the cmd window appear, type in sfc /scannow and press enter. By doing this, the windows file protection application will appear and it will prompts you to insert your Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 CD now, if you are using xp service pack 2. Insert it to your cd or dvd rom, and just keep pressing retry. Note! this wil take some time, so be patient. When it has finished, restart your pc. After you have done this, you need to have a good pc utilities (http://www.ultimatepcutilities.url-go.com) in order maintain the health of your computer.

Sound & USB


Usb ports can be difficult at times, as they get stuck in a cycle from last peripheral connected. The best thing to do is go to right click on My computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the harware list will be your usb controllers. right click on them individually and select uninstal, then restart your notebook and they will re install themselves, that should clear that. Next the sound, if you are unable to change anything, then the driver is more than likely corrupt. Again follow above proceedure and look down list for sound, video & game controllers, click tht'+' to Realtek drivers if thats your sound chip and right click and uninstall. Restart your notebook again and again the sound driver should re install itself. If you still have a driver problem go to acer site as the drivers may need updating. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_2350.html
