    what make and model of computer are you running? You'll need to install sound card drivers before your sound will work. This is normal for 99% of Windows installs.

So, you should install your sound driver  follow the step below to reinstall it.
start/ right click my computer/ choose Properties in system properties, choose Hardware tab. Click Device Manager check if there's yellow question mark in it. If so, that's where the driver perform not normal. Delete it, and restart your windows to reinstall that driver.

For a scanner driver it should not matter whether you have XP Home or XP Pro. Most probably there's a simple problem with the disc.
You can ask the vendor for a replacement disc, or go to manufacturer's website and find downloadable drivers & software there. However, on the website there may not be the full software set available, as usually scanners come with some bundled extra 3rd party software that cannot be made available online by the manufacturer for everyone to download.
The essential thing is to install the drivers properly, the other bells & whistles are not needed, you can use applications either built into the system, or available free online for image scanning and manipulation.

Your sound card might be in use by another application.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with
your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may
encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may
be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem,
see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's
documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound
device, and then try to play the file again.

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

I have encountered a similar issue before. What works, is to try the update of your chipset's driver. This could be an error once present in your chipset's initial release, but has since then been fixed by your chipset's manufacturer. Also this could another among the millions of peculiarities in the windows operating system, i say this for it is very possible the the controller will function well if a game is started while the controller is already plugged in. Just see if it works, but an amendment to the chipset's instruction set would be optimal.
