Question about HP Media Center PC 873n (P9875A#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

My sound will not work

I am using an original HP Media Center PC 873N from before 2004. For some reason the sound does not work. It tells me I am using SB Audigy Audio [C000]and I am unable to change any sound setting as well as hear any sound whether I use head phones, speakers, Moniter with speakers, or have it plugged into a television that is capable of plugging up to a computer. Please help me.

    I did what you said, and it told me I was missing an audio device, and after that the SB Audigy Audio disappeared, It was apparently deleted before we obtained the computer yet the name was still showing up. This has happened sometimes with other deleted programs, where some things will still show up, so at the moment I am looking into trying to obtain a download for a new device software.

For hp multi media center. i'm trying to recover original system using discs. What is procedure for this and do discs go in, in a certain order other than 1 to 7


They should be self installing. Just put the first disc in and it will tell you what disc to put in next. They usually go in order.

Changing hard drive


For some strange reason the HP website does not allude to which drive came with your machine. I would assume that information is in your original shipping manifest, but the site does offer a video or instructions on how to change your hard drive, just remember you will have to "clone" your old drive to the new one so all your features will be enabled in your system.

Take a look at this:
