Does it give you an error?
you might try downloading the drivers off the internet from here, under audio, and installing them:

it may be helpful to remove the sound driver from device manager before trying to reinstall also

Sound not coming in win xp sp3 even after updating correct sound driver?


Do you still have the unknown device in device manager? If so, you need to install a different driver. If not, go into device manager, expand Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. For each device under that heading, right-click the device, then click update driver software, choose "Search Automatically..." It will then go to the windows update site and see if there is a driver there that is listed as more recent, and it will install that driver, if such a driver is found. If that doesn't work, make sur ethat y ou manually find the correct sound driver installer, and then right-click whichever device obviously represents the sound hardware driver, and click Uninstall. Reboot afterward. Then reinstall the audio driver. If that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall windows.

How to do Fast and unattended setup of OS


Here I have an Idea for primary setup of a large lab quickly. Suppose you have to setup a lab where have more than twenty or thirty system but must setup it quickly. At that time if you don't have enough CD Rom drive or not enough OS installer CD then the task will take a long time. To save time at the same moment I like to prepare an unattendent operating system installation. Before this task I must check for presence of some requirement. Verify for unattended Installation: To perform an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, the following conditions must be met:The computer must support booting from a CD Rom The unattended answer file must be renamed to Winnt.sif and copied to a floppy disk so Setup can access it. So must need a floppy disk drive.The answer file must contain a valid [Data] section. This is explained later in this article. Before installation it has some conditions:

1> the installation is limited to a single partition.

2> you cannot specify third-party drivers during Setup Prepare For an Unattended Installation:

To prepare your computer for an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, I've followed these stepsFirst I've created a Folder in local drive & shared it. Then I create setup manager.I install Setup Manager by following these steps:I Open My Computer, and then open the SupportTools folder on the Windows XP CD-ROM.Double-click the DEPLOY.CAB file to open it On the Edit menu, click Select All.On the Edit menu, click Copy to Folder.Click Make New Folder. Type the name that you want for the Setup Manager folder, and then press ENTER. For example, type setup manager, and then press ENTER.Click Copy. Open the new folder that you created, and then double-click the setupmgr.exe file. The Windows

Setup Manager Wizard starts: alokerdas_2.jpg

Then I Use Setup Manager to Create an Answer File.
I open the setup manager & go to create a new answer file.
Then I go to the unattended installation & windows version option.
I have selected the fully automated option & create an answer file.


alokerdas_3.jpg

If you want Windows Setup to delete all partitions on the hard disk and to create a new partition, you must include the Repartition command in the Winnt.sif file. Under [Unattended], insert a new line, and then type "Repartition=Yes"
If you omit this line, you are prompted for the installation partition.

Add a [Data] section with the following entries to the unattended answer file:
Unattended Install=Yes - Value must be set to "yes"
MSDos Initiated=No - Value must be set to "no" or Setup stops during the graphical portion of Setup

Auto Partition=1 - If the value is set to 1, the installation partition is automatically selected. If the value is set to 0 (zero) you are prompted for the installation partition during the text portion of Setup.
Save the unattended answer file as Winnt.sif on a floppy disk.
Insert the Windows CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then insert the floppy disk into the floppy disk drive.
Change the boot order in the CMOS so that the CD-ROM is first in the list.
Restart your computer. When Setup is started from the CD-ROM, the Winnt.sif file located on the floppy disk will be used to complete the unattended installation.

I have lost Ezonics web cam IV driver CD and unable to find driver on the net unable to find them, kindly help to instal my web cam on my system using win - XP OS EZONICS USB CAMERA, M/N : CAM IV


I have found a link to the driver file for CAM IV. Click here for the download.

The download is a 16 MB zip file. Extract it contents on the desktop. There will be two files: CamIVxp.zip and driver updater. Delete driver updater and extract CamIVxp. Double click on Setup and wait for it to install the drivers. Connect your cam after the install completes.

If you are using Vista, and the setup does not run, try compatibility mode and remember that setup can only be run after the files are extracted and cannot be run from within the zip file.

No sound etower 533id win98 os


I would try the driver files that Emachine says is right for your computer first before any others. On windows 98, you will need to download a unzipper program such as winzip or RAR to unzip your files. Windows 98 did not ship with a unzip program attatched. once you install the unzip program, double click your zipped file. this will bring up your unzipping program. Choose "unzip all" and make sure you know where the files are unzipped to. Go to that location & look for a "setup.exe or install.bat " file. if there's not one of those, go to your device manager, pick your sound card & click "update driver" then browse to the location that you unzipped the files to, and click "OK"

I can't install drivers for my ATI 4850. I get a, "Driver Install: unable to find INF file" whenever I try to.


Solution:

i) if you are trying install drivers from CD try to make sure that CD is in working or good condtion(i mean    no scratches, no spots, dots,...no breaks.....)

ii) if this CD came withur computer  and if it is too old..... then there is possibility of  loss of data on the       CD.

iii) try another Driver CD if you have it or download it from internet, if it is working then surely there is           some problem with ur old CD 

iv) or if you have Setup directly on your computer and you are installing from ur system rather than CD then they may be some file corruption(due to virus.....) 


Thanking You,

DVD/Cd Burner won't run programs.


All you need to do is that put the CD in the CD/DVD drive that you have access and not properly closed. For example here is the situation. I put a cd installer with a file named in the cd setup.exe and it is located in drive D: i access the file setup.exe and I run it or install.. then I decided not to install the programs.. what I did is that is did not cancel the installation but rather I immediately open my cd/dvd drive and get the cd..

What are going to happen? the installation is in the process and I did not cancel the installation properly. In the installation logs of the windows it still have to install the programs but it cannot find the file setup.exe that is located in the Drive D:.

Try to put a cd in your cd/dvd drive with file named setupexe on the cd.. that will solve your problems. TY

Step 3 - extract the file to c:\drivers\printer\4300 but do install the software, just cancel
Step 4 - once you've extracted, copy the OCR and FAX folders from the original INSTALL CD to the same directory c:\drivers\printer\4300 along with all files from the ROOT directory (autorun.inf, cdicon.ico, hidclass.sys etc) on the CD EXCEPT "setup.exe"
Step 5 - open setup.exe and wait for install, it should notify you twice of installation so be patient.....and WOLA you're done
Hope this helps guys....

Sound card drivers


SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder. http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/audio/T1140_50_Audio.zip
