You need to find out what motherboard is installed in your computer.
upon booting up your pc, it should display a string of number on the bottom of the screen. hit pause on your keyboard (normally top right hand of keyboard - near insert and PrtSc keys).
write down the numbers displayed on the bottom of the screen. press any key to continue the boot process.
go to www.google.com and enter the numbers there. this way you can determine your motherboard type.
now go to you motherboard manufacturer website and search for the audio driver on that site.
hope this helps?
Good luck.

Error Loading Operating System


the two operating systems are not compatible. I assume that you are trying to rollback to XP on the computer. The problem is to remove the Vista o/s and install XP.

I couldn't install windows xp in Compaq cq45 112au


Try using an win 98 startup disk on floppy and start your computer with disk in.Let it finish loading the drivers and then type in fdisk erase your partition and then make a new one. then restart the computer with floppy still in then this time type in format c:/ and format the drive after it is done then you can install win xp.But you need to repartition your hard drive and then format after that to get xp to install Oh yeah when you go to fdisk allow large drive usage

Sounds like both of you have what is called 'Microsoft Blue Screen Of Death' and is irreversible, but is fixable at the same time. If you need files on your computer then follow these instructions

  1. Turn on computer and Insert Windows XP Installation Disc that came with your computer
  2. Wait until it says 'Press any key to boot from CD....' and press any key
  3. Wait until it comes up with prompts and choose 'Install Windows XP
  4. Choose to install XP without formatting the hard drive and choose a made partition (C Drive) to install NTFS
  5. Install and now your system will be working again. You will be prompted from now on though which Operating System you would like to use. Always select the first one
  6. Enjoy
For if you want to erase the hard drive
  1. Follow steps 1 - 3 in above instructions
  2. Choose 'Format Hard Drive'
  3. Select create partition in Hard Drive and set it to the maximum space and call (C)
  4. Select NTFS and go through instructions
  5. You won't be asked to choose a OS as there is only one to choose from
  6. Enjoy
Hope This Helps
