Question about Packard Bell DR724 Motherboard
Hi , work gave me a packard bell utow co20 i thought thats nice of them but it doesnt play any sounds and i cant get the sound card recognised or driver anywhere :( can anyone help ? computer stays on aas long as I dont use it but as soon as I start useing it within 5 mins it shuts down
First things first: "work" in giving this away has dodged the "responsible disposal" bullet. Drivers for this unit are probably limited to windows 98 or earlier, as the last Packard-Bell was produced in that era. Drivers for sound in particular were Packard-Bell only, and since they aren't around any more unless you can get your hands on the original installation CD you're out of luck to make the existing soundcard work. You do howrever have the option to install a newer soundcard, that should fix that issue. As for the shutting down, make sure the heatsink has good thermal contact with the processor as it sounds like the processor may be overheating. If there's a fan make sure it is running.
You've got a challenge if you want to see it all work, have fun.
