Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Windows vista installed twice

Somehow, the sound went out on my computer, just randomly. i've tried installing sound drivers numerous times and nothing works. that's the first thing i need fixed. i then tried to just install windows vista again to try and solve the problem, but now i have windows installed twice on the same platform with no clue how to fix either of the situations.
my laptop is an acer aspire 5100. any help is appreciated.

Um, this may sound silly, but you wouldn't believe how many people simply have the volume turned off in the volume properties. I would then check speaker connections, check that they are still recognized in the device manager, and if all appears well, it may be just a sound card that just up and bit the dust.

Samsung Q35 notebook with Windows 7 , no sound and sony card read


Find the manufacturer of those devices and go to the manufacturer website and download the windows 7 drivers. There probabbly aren't any.
Windows 7 will use vista driver if upgrading, but not with fresh installs.
or
purchase driver magician and run the update feature.

I formatted my lg 50express laptop and install windows vista so i lost my audio driver. the driver i have is for windows vista and it is not compatible with vista


just try to install the drivers then the computer would tell you that its not compatible with the vista and exits the installation. after some times a window will appear that will tell you either to re-install the driver or the driver is installed successfully, click on reinstall software and vista will accept the drivers this time. try with all drivers.
