Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
I'm having sound and video issues. i have discovered that i have two identical devices under my display adapter. they are only different in their resource information. the help and support says to check my "hardware documentation" to find the recommended setting so that i know which one to uninstall. i have NO idea how to figure that out. how do i know which one is the right one? i need to uninstall one i'm pretty sure. at the moment they are both enabled. i've tried disabling one and nothing happened. i disabled the other and then the size of the icons got larger and it was less defined so enabled them both back again. anyone??
Hi there. The reason you have 2 identical devices under your display adapter, is because you have an external monitor port (VGA) on the side. The more monitor/tv ports you have, the more devices you have under the display adapter.
I have an Acer Aspire laptop, which has an external VGA port, and a DVI port. So therefore, I have 3 devices under my display adapter.
Have you also tried updating to the latest service pack for your operating system?

There is nothing wrong in having two display adapter in device manager. This laptop has a LCD display on the laptop and also supports external monitor. So that you can configure dual monitors. To find what is wrong with sound, use a headphone and connect to the headphone jack of the laptop. If the sound is clear on the headphone, then the internal speakers of the laptop has gone bad. Since you said that windows start up sound it self is distorted, the possibility is like you may have lot of programs loading on startup. Click start->run and type 'msconfig' and press enter. In system configuration utility under general tab select 'selective startup' and uncheck 'load startup items'. click apply and close. It will ask you to restart the computer. Click restart. After reboot check for any sound distortion.
Revert back for clarifications...
