Re: sound device

You can locate drivers for just about ANY older system (ala "Packard Bell") and it's devices on Driver Guide (it's saved MY life a few times).

Just loaded windows xp on my HP tower and now the ethernet card is ? on the device manager of this system

You need to reinstall your Ethernet NIC drivers. If you have internet access through your wireless USB, then go to the HP Support site and find your model there. Download the drivers and run the install program.

If you do not have Internet access, use another computer to download the drivers and transfer them with a USB flash drive.

My packard bell imedia pc has lost the ability to play windows sounds and any sound from the internet. I can still get sound from media player 11 and realplayer. i'm using xp home and the sound card is...

Go into device manager, (control panel, system, hardware) double click your sound hardware, go to the drivers tab, and click roll back driver. Once this has completed, go to microsoft update, select the 'custom' option, and run the scan. This should produce a list which includes an update for your realtek; click the little "+" sign beside the update and select "Do not show this update again". This should prevent the update from being installed in the future, and your sound SHOULD be back to normal. I have the same issues with some of my older systems, some of Microsofts' updates turn out to be incompatible with the hardware, usually in the sound department.

Reinstalling windows on desktop

you will not be able to get the drivers for the packard bell computer, especially for windows XP. the computer was discontinued way before XP came out, as well as the company going out of business. There is a new packard bell company, but based in Europe only. In addition, when you use the HP cd, it will probably say not compatible with non-hp computers.
your best bet is to download you important information and store it on a new unit.

No audio and sound after refortmatting my pc

If your PC is a branded one, like Dell Acer , HP, Packard bell, IBM, etc, then we can find the drivers by looking at the PC model number.

If PC is not a famous brand, you will need to remove the PC side panel, look inside the PC and write down the ID numbers printed on the motherboard.

Then post a new question on Fixya giving details of the motherboard number, so that we can find the right driver.

Sound card driver for ibm desktop

If you restart the computer, it should detect and install them automatically. If not, try this. Click start, right-click my computer, then click properties. Click hardware, then device manager. Under Sound, find your sound card, right click it, then update driver. Follow the steps.
