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.

No sound device, just multimedia device after adding a new hard drive and Windows XP reinstall.

Are you booting in from one of 2 hard drives at start-up .. ie. do you have a dual-boot system?

If your sound works fine when using the original hard drive but not when you boot from the slave, then it sounds like a driver problem -in the slave. You'll need to download the sound drivers for XP/Slave.

I can't think of any reason why your computer should beep after you have opened and closed the case. I don't think it is anything to do with the case. It's more likely that there's a bad connection or fault (maybe you have the slave and master on the wrong cable) - or badly fitted RAM.

Count the error beeps - there is a pattern of long and short beeps. You can find a list of their meanings here:

Though having said that, I would hazard a guess that you've got the master/slave configuration wrong. If you have both hard drives on one cable (ide) the MASTER drive should be at the end of the cable.

Remember there's a primary master (c) and a secondary master - your dvd drive. A 2nd hard drive would be set up to be the primary SLAVE. You cannot have 2 'master' drives on the same cable or bus. That would cause an error beep ...

It sounds as if you have a failed or failing hard drive. Replace the HDD and then go for a re-install.

How to fix a dead hard drive

Try a low level format. There is a strong possibility that your hard disk will no longer be able to perform normally even after a low level reformatting. Looks like a new hard disk is the answer.

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.

HP Tower (2000 Media Edition)

Sounds like your power supply unit is dead. Do you get any power or hard drive lights on the unit? If not, I'm afraid it's a repair shop problem.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

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.

do you still have your restore CD? try to fresh restore it and updates everything on that unit again. Often online gamers send you malicious script that crashes your system.
