Hi,
The first step is to scan for spyware. These nasties can alter system files. Download MS Antispyware and Ad Aware and scan or spyware.

Also run a system file checker command to update any missing files Go to Start>Run>type "sfc /scannow" without quotes.
Note: it is advised to keep the original windows CD handy while prforming SFC \scannow as it tries to update the missing/ corrupt files.
Regards,
Arpit

I have no sound. maybe my computer has been muted


Check that sound drivers are ok as follows
  • Open your start menu (right-click on the "Start" button and choose "Explore"), and find the "My Computer" icon. Right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the submenu. Click on the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button.
  • Expand the "Sounds, video, and game controllers" heading to find your sound card. The name will depend on what sound card is installed on your PC. It will most likely have a name containing "audio." It should look something similar to the example above. You'll know immediately if there is a major driver error because an exclamation point (!) will show over the card's icon.
  • Double-click on the name of the sound card to open a new window. In the new properties window click on the "Drivers" tab. If there is no "Drivers" tab then you chose the wrong sound device. Go back and try again. On the "Drivers" tab, click the "Driver Update" button. Follow the Wizard's onscreen instructions to update your driver. You can also contact the manufacturer of your PC for the most recent audio drivers. They can usually be found online.
if the drivers were OK, proceed as follows

If your computer have a, Synaptics Touchpad you can try these steps:

1. Access the properties of the Synaptics Pointing Device by right-clicking on the system tray icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. If you do not see the icon, open your Control Panel and select the "Performance and Maintenance" option. Click "System", then "Hardware", then "Device Manager" to view the devices on your computer. Open the "Mice and Other Pointing Devices" selection.

2. Click on the "Device Settings" tab of the "Mouse Properties" window. The "Device Settings" tab is at the top of the window and located farthest to the right

3. Highlight the Synaptics Touchpad from the list of available pointing devices. Click the "Disable" button underneath the list. Click "OK" on the pop-up menu to confirm your selection. Click "OK" on the Mouse Properties window to close the window. Your Synaptics Touchpad will now be disabled.

Make sure to connect a USB mouse to your laptop before disabling the touchpad so that you will still have control of your pointer.

Hope this help. Goodluck!
