Question about Compaq Audio card Sound Card

2 Answers

Sound probs We bought this compaq presario sr1603wm 2 years ago and now we are having probs with the sound. I went and disable the realtec ac'97 audio and then enabled it and it would work that is until you restart the comp. That has worked for about 3 months. Now it dosen't work any more and the sound is very very soft to where u can barely hear it. I tried to update the driver for it but it said that i had the latest one already. Help please.

Oversized startup

Are you doing some maintenance of ur PC, like removing & clearing junk files,registry maintenance, de-fragmenting, etc? If not Install Advanced System Optimizer (ver. 2, 2.1, 2.2) which allows you to chose the start up menu such that only essential programs are used when starting , the other, when u need them! Alsp it has many tweaks whic are quite easy to figure and very helpful in optimizing the performance of the PC. This software is available for download by uTorrent & Limewire.......sodeep
