Question about HP Pavilion 533w (P9859AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Sound device I recently formatted my PC with Windows XP SP2, but I've had a little problem on the sound card. I got all functioning (graphics, internet, ...) but the sound card doesn't seem to work properly. I went to HP's site (my model is a HP ) and downloaded all drivers, but when I installed Soundmax program (which previously did work on my computer) it said 'driver not found - reinstall and run program again' or something like that. So, I went to Device Manager and it had a yellow question mark on 'Multimedia Audio Controller'. I've tried various times installing the driver but the outcome is always the same.please help me

Do you still have the MB CD with all the drivers still with you, if so then run that CD once. Secondly soundmax has many versions running so look for the driver that was released during the time you bought your PC. Many a time you got to manually add the hardware and then its driver for it to function properly....................sodeep

Sound card problem.


Open the Device Manager, click on the icon, which is marked with question mark, hit delete button then a prompt will pop-up then hit Yes. After a while or after Windows restart, it will prompt you that you need to install driver for a new hardware, I assume you still have the Drivers CD, which comes with your PC, dictate the PC to search driver from the CD or DVD drive. This should do the trick. if you still have further inquiries or if still this doesn't work, please post another thread.

Do direct x 10 supports windows xp sp2 ? i'm asking this b'coz i have recently installed it but there is no improvement in games performance or in video >.i have windows xp sp2 installed


Hey,

Dx10 comes with vista, microsoft doesn't give dx10 to xp, xp has dx9.

you can try this alpha, unofficial dx10, not made by microsoft..
http://www.techmixer.com/download-directx-10-for-windows-xp/

it comes with no warranty of actually working, try at your own risk.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ek

SOUND CARD NOT FOUND BY WINDOWS


Go to the ThinkPad Website

Put in the information for your computer and search for an audio driver. It will be a free download. Follow all of the instructions that come with the driver.

I would provide a direct link to the driver, but you did not list the specific Type of Thinkpad R60 that you own. There are many types. Also it may matter if you have XP SP1 or SP2.
