Re: no sound

Go to your motherboard manufacturers website if it is a PC that you put together and download the audio driver for the model that you have. Or, if the PC that you bought is prebuilt by companies such as DELL, HP, etc... then there should be a sticker on your PC that says "service tag". You can then go to their website and their should be a download section where you can enter the service tag and it will give you the link to download the driver Or, you can run windows automatic update and it should find the audio driver for you.

I cant format my laptop . when i run xp cd after

Sorry, it sounds like your hard drive failed. It is either that, or your XP install CD has an error. If it is the hard drive, it is easy to replace. Take it to your local PC techie and he/she will put a new hard drive in for a lot less than a new PC. Check out eBay as the cheapest place to buy a replacement hard drive; there are two types of hard drives for laptops - SATA and IDE. Got to buy the "right" one.

It seems that the computer itself is killing the hard drive. You got at one point the system working for two days.

I can boot up when i put in my new hard drive

New hard drives have to be formatted and an operating system installed to be able to boot up.

The operating system depends on what you want to put on there

As you are posting in the XP HOME section I would suggest you set your bios to boot from CD
Place the XP HOME CD in the drive and boot up
It will say press any key to boot from CD DO SO !

Follow the on screen instructions until setup is complete and then start to install the drivers you need and activate XP

Aftermarket case trying to figure out the wiring not full plugs and don't know where on motherboard they fit anyone have my solution it's a hp board ms6577ver 4.1

if the motherboard is atx and the power supply is atx then the mb connectors should be marked on the mb and power supply. the mb side you will need a magnifier to read the small print. they will be in a line together somewhere near the lower corner of the board, in a straight line. usually rst is reset - hdd led is hard drive led and the square 20 pin conn, goes somewhere near the processor. if you have at board or powersupply it won't work they both have to be the same form factor. there are others and not knowing the case or ps i cant give you more info.

Wont start up

well from my experience the little colored wires are the power supply they go to box with all the other wires that look just like it will go to cdrom or dvdrom they only go on one way the wide multi wire goes to hard drive this looks just like the ones that go to your cdrom. they could be different thickness some have twice the wire's the big key is the multi ribbon has a color wire on one side that the side that faces the power line. first you need to boot in to bios by what ever your computer tell's you to do. once your in bios look and see if it lists your hard drive. if it lists it as your secondary drive on your primary socket you need to unplug the thick cable at the hard drive and plug it back into the other connector on the same ribbon. on really old computer's than run windows 95 you would have a real little 3 or 4 wire connection that goes from the HD to a spot on the mother board.

Windows XP Pro installed but computer boots to Home Edition

It sure is possible.
I would take it back to them and demand that WINXP Pro is put back in there and it boot correctly
They saved about 50 bucks putting in WINXP Home.

Sounds like a bunch of rookies trying to pull a fast one.
