It seems to me that the driver is not installed in your Japanese XP version. You should get the model number of the sound card if possible and go to the manufacturers website. Do a search for the driver, download it, and install it. This will fix your problem. To check you can right click on my computer, click properties, click system, click device manager, and you should find a questionmark in the list. If this is found, it confirms that you need to download the driver. Good Luck!

XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs


Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

THINGS TO DO FIRST ON YOUR BRAND NEW LAPTOP


Things to do first on your brand new PC August 27, 2007 - techtipster Bought a new computer? Before you do anything, perform these stepsfirst 1. Isolate your computer from the Internet Do not allow your computer to connect to the web until you have prepared itfor the onslaught of viruses. A study has shown there is a 50 percent chancethat a non-ready PC will be infected within 12 minutes of connecting to theInternet. So do not connect your Internet cable, and turn the wireless functionoff, either physically if there's a wireless switch on the PC, or by going to [StartMenu -> Control Panel -> Network Connections] and disabling itthere. 2. Check whether you got what you paid for Go to [Start Menu -> Run] and type 'dxdiag'. You will see a summary ofyour computer's specifications, such as the RAM (memory) and the processor.Check both of them, as well as the graphics card used inside. Does your PC havewhat the salesman said it does? 3. Decrapify your PC Most computers come bundled with advertisements in the form of "free"promotional software that clutter up your desktop and take up disk space. Justdeleting them from your desktop doesn't remove them from your PC. You have tomanually uninstall them by finding the uninstaller program for each of them andrun it. The PCDecrapifier makes it a hassle-free process by searching for theseirritating apps and taking them out for you. Best of all, it's really free!Download and step-by-step guide here. 4. Turn on your firewall Firewalls block any unauthorised intrusions to your computer. Windows XP comeswith its firewall turned off, so you have to manually turn it on by going to[Start Menu -> Run] and type in 'Firewall.cpl'. Then select the 'On' button.Windows Vista comes with the firewall turned on, while Mac and Linux usersdon't have to bother about viruses. 5. Install an antivirus program If you've bought antivirus software, such as Norton or McAfee,put in the CD and install them. If not, download a free antivirus program suchas Avast or AVGon your old computer, and transfer the files via thumb drive or CD-ROM to yournew computer and install them. Your computer is now ready to connect to the web! OPTIONAL 6. Partition your hard drive Partitioning means splitting up your hard drive - for example, if you nowhave a single C: drive, partitioning splits it up into C: and D: drives if youchoose to split it in two. Doing so enables better file management. Most people install the operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, etc) onthe first hard drive, and all the programs and documents on the second. Thatway, if you have to reinstall the OS, your files don't get lost. Why partitionnow? Partitioning a hard driveusually requires you to format the hard drive a.k.a wipe it clean of data. Sodo it now when your computer is still brand new and untouched. Step-by-step guide here (Windows XP) and here (Windows Vista). 7. Protect your startup Many programs that you are going to install in the coming days as you havefun on your new PC are likely to try adding themselves to the startup list. Thelonger the list, the slower your computer takes to get ready for use when youturn on the power. Use the free and bite-d Startup Guard program to prevent programs from adding tothe startup list without your exclusive permission. Tip: only allow programsyou want to be automatically running when you turn on the computer to addthemselves to startup.

Card installation


1) Turn the computer on. When Windows has loaded all the way, put the Installation (CD) disk in your optical drive. Load the software.

No disk? Go to the Sound Card manufacturers website, and download the software. Now INSTALL it.

If asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off.

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions, and computer unplugged from power, open the computer case, and physically install the Sound Card.

Close the computer case, do not forget to hook up the audio wires to your sound card.
Plug computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

2) Doesn't have a sound adapter card, and is just Integrated Audio?
Download AND install the audio drivers from Asus for that motherboard, AND Operating System you are using.
(Win XP and Win 7, are two examples of an O/S)

Need further guidance than this?
Post the Sound Card manufacturer and Model Number.
Also post the model number of the Asus motherboard.
Post in a Comment.

I don't think you are talking about a sound card. You may be talking about a driver. If you are talking about a driver then when dowloaded on your friends computer you could transfere it to yours via usb flash drive or even cd with the driver on it.

Install new sound card. Creative tech


Before you install the sound card, you install the drivers for it. Drivers are small 'pieces' of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with the device. If you did not, then No, Windows did not recognize your sound card.

(In essence. Read on) (Not to insult your intelligence. Windows XP, is an example of an Operating System. So is Vista)

In this instance, the device is a Sound Card. Those drivers are on a CD, that should have been provided with the sound card.

Reasoning that you install the drivers first, then the Sound card is this,

When you install a device, Windows 'recognizes' it, as soon as Windows starts up. Windows 'breaks it's neck' to hurry up, and find drivers to match the device. If there are no actual drivers, then Windows chooses from Thousands of Generic drivers it has, and matches one up.

This is No good. The device needs THE drivers for it.
Then the owner comes along, and installs the drivers later. (Or in your case, didn't)

This causes a driver conflict.

BUT, you didn't indicate you installed the CD, therefore didn't install the drivers, and Windows is using the generic drivers. Crappy quality results.

Suggest you do this. Computer off, and unplugged
from the surge protector. Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of Five seconds, then let go. (And I mean Five at least. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005)
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS error codes, and resetting your BIOS, back to the factory default setting.

Computer unplugged, computer case open, touch the metal frame of the computer case. (Work on a table) This will relieve your body of Static electricity. Your body always carries static electricity. Static will silently fry out, your delicate computer hardware components.

Now take the sound card out. Leave the case open, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on. When Windows has fully loaded, install the CD for the sound card, Follow the instructions.
At the end, if it asks you do you want to restart your computer, NO!
Close all windows, until you are back at your desktop screen. Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn off computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power. Forget this part, and you may be buying a different computer.
Install the sound card. Close the computer case. Plug the computer back in. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
Now how's your sound?

Audio CD sound Prob


Various conditions may cause this problem. To troubleshoot, check the following:Microsoft Volume Control or your mixer program mute options and volume sliders. 
Connect headphones to the stereo phone jack on your CD-ROM drive’s front panel; adjust the volume control settings on the drive. If there is sound from your headphones, check the CD audio cable connection from the CD-ROM drive to the audio card. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Joystick port is not working 
To troubleshoot, check the following:
The audio card joystick port conflicts with another joystick port in the system. Disable the audio card joystick port, and use the system’s joystick port. 
The joystick drivers, MSJSTICK.DRV and VJOYD.VXD, may not be installed. Uninstall the joystick, then reinstall to load the drivers. The drivers should come with the driver CD or floppy diskette with your sound card.
Computer hangs or restarts during installation
A hardware conflict may cause the computer to hang or restart during the installation procedure. Check the following to resolve the conflict:
A hardware conflict with another device in your system. 
Previously installed sound card hardware or software needs to be removed. 
The audio card is not seated in the slot properly. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices.
Resolving hardware conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more devices contend for the same resources. Conflicts between your audio card and another device may occur regarding the I/O address, IRQ line, or DMA channel:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. In the Device Manager, a plus sign(+) represents an expandable list of items. A minus sign (-) represents an expanded list. A circled exclamation mark denotes a conflict.

Double-click CD-ROM, and select your CD-ROM drive. 
Choose the Properties button. The CD-ROM drive properties dialog appears. 
Choose the Settings tab. 
Click the "Auto insert notification" option to enable. 
Select OK until all Properties dialogs are closed, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
No sound is heard from speakers
Verify the following:
Check the Microsoft Volume Control or the Audio Mixer Program mute options and volume sliders. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Check the volume control and power connection of the speakers, if they are amplified. (Refer to the speakers documentation for detailed information). 
Ensure a hardware conflict does not exist between your audio card and another device in your system. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices. If the device is a display card, upgrade the display card drivers, or set the card to the default Windows VGA mode.
If you are experiencing no sound only during audio CD playback, see "No sound is heard from audio (music) CDs" above.

Static sounds are heard in wave files
Check to see if the static sounds are heard in all wave files. If the difficulty occurs only with certain games, refer to the software manufacturer’s documentation. To troubleshoot static sounds heard in all wave files:
Try different resource settings for the audio card, or set the card to use low DMA. 
Move the audio card to another PCI slot. Feedback from the power supply or another device may be responsible.

How to remove sound card, and install new


Your PC has what is called onboard sound. It doesn't have a seperate sound card; it's integrated into the mainboard. In order for you to add a sound card, you will have to go into the bios and disable it. To do this:
  1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  2. When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.
Once you're in, arrow down to Integrated Devices and press
enter. This should take you to another menu. Arrow down to sound and press enter. You should get 2 options; on or off. Set it to off. Then save and exit the setup menu. Let the PC boot and then shut it down. Now you can install a sound card. There are 3
PCI slots that run horizontally to the bottom of your case. Insert your card in the top one, lining up the slots with the slots in the board. Press firmly straight in. When you power the PC back on, Windows should recognize the new hardware and prompt you for the disk. Pu the disk in the CD-ROm drive and let it install. You should be ready to go after that.
