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.

Just bought new computer with Windows 7 Professional, put in my Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card, disabled the Realtec card that came with the system, but the computer still doesn't acknowledge that new...

Disable the realtek from bios, then uninstall its drivers.
If Soundblaster is not auto detected go to Device Manager and click on menu "Search for new hardware". After your card is detected, install specific drivers
and that should do the trick.

Hello! Just weeks ago I had to re-install windows xp to my computer. However, after i reinstalled it, I discovered the version I have is an older version of windows than I had before. As a result, I now...

If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.
