Question about Sony Computers & Internet
Sony model pcv 7762 at a va thrift store can't put an anti virus in don't have the password
You didn't say what OS you are using.
1.To try and remove the password protection you can power off the PC.
remove the side panel and then remove the battery. Leave it for 10 minutes, refit the battery and then power up the PC. The password protection may have been removed.
2. Or at start up, enter the bios settings. You may be able to disable the password from within the settings.
3. If you're not bothered which OS you use, try a new install of XP or Windows 7.
If you don't have XP or Windows 7, ask a friend to download linux and burn it onto a dvd for you(or put it onto a usb flash drive). Put the linux dvd into your dvd drive and restart the computer. You will have the choice of completely erasing Windows, or installing Linux alongside Windows.
Linux is free. It will do everything Windows can do. Linux comes with its own version of 'Office'. The best free versions of Linux are Ubuntu or 'Mint'.
You can download Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
Webcams do NOT work in Linux. Apart from that, Linux will do everything Windows can do (but free!) and you won't ever get a virus.

- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password (there are several programs you can use there NTPWD, Offline NT Password Changer 2010-06-27, or Password Renew 1.1).

Could it be the motherboard?
Could it be that it is the wrong drivers?
Or the right drivers, and installation did not actually occur?
If it is the motherboard's integrated audio chipset is bad, simply obtain, and use a sound card in the appropriate expansion slot on the motherboard.
An open PCI slot. (White in color)
[NOTE* That is PCI-Express x1.
Not PCI-Express x16 slot. This slot is reserved for a graphics card.
According to Sony eSupport the PCV 7762 model is actually the PCV-RX850
1) Did you install this audio driver?
Yamaha YMF753 Audio Driver Utility?
(Has the audio driver in it)
2) You downloaded the file to your computer (My Documents, or Downloads, perhaps?), and then double-clicked on the file name - YA31520801JG.EXE, then followed the simple instructions of the Installation Wizard?
[Simply, Next, Next, and Finish]
3) You then restarted the computer?
4) Are you sure the audio is turned on, and not muted? (Speaker icon in system tray, or go to Control Panel)
5) Sound system is plugged in correctly to the back of the computer? (Motherboard)
6) Sound system has power to it if required?
7) Still using the Windows XP O/S that came with the computer?
One example of a PCI soundcard,
