    hey its actually not that, but thanks! its the drivers for the sound card i think i need. looking on net for someting now. when i try and play music through windows media player this is what it says... Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly. ????

Try to check the small cable at the back of your monitor if it is connected at the back of your pc, basically the audio port at the back of your pc have 3 same holes mostly the middle hole is the audio port, if you have more than 3 holes try guessing while your playin music.make sure the jack fits, if the sound appear it means thats the right port for that.

    ok,, when you say your friend wiped your computer does it mean he format it or re-install the operating system?

    if you have a separate sound card you need to check the brand and the model of your sound card, if it is a build in sound card to you motherboard you need to get the exact model and brand of your mother board to search for your sound card driver.

    if you have all the info you can give me the brnad and model so i can help you look for one.

    to make sure you have the correct driver go to

    control panel->system->hardware tab->device manager->sound and video games controller

    check if you have audio device there

How do I fix my pc beep tone no monitor

You have a PC connected to a monitor.
Now the PC is beeping and there is no display at your monitor

PC beeping most likely can be of the RAM.

1) Switch OFF PC and Main Switch
2) Give the motherboard to discharge (5 minutes)
3) Use a anti-static wrist strip
4) Remove RAM
a) Do not touch the connections of the ram with bare hands
b) Use compress air spray in short blasts to clean the connections and RAM slots
c) Make sure this is done in a well lighted environment. You can trace the dust and remove it with an anti-static cloth.
5) Put RAM inside the slots
6) Switch ON

If above fails
1) Try replacing either your RAMs or PC with a friend's good working conditions.

Please note, since you are removing your RAMs, anything and everything can happen. So be careful and hope for the best.

Another way
Get your hard drive into your friends working PC as a secondary and transfer the data into an external hdd. This way your data is saved.

Hello, How are you?, Well, the problem with my keyboard is; when i press some keys like, the "R" and "Y" or "U", they don't work. and i have to use a external USB keyboard.

I fixed a friends laptop recently different brand than your but exactly the same keys she had to bash them to make them work. My first thought was needed new keyboard. Was running vista messed up a lot so i decided a format and put win7 on and is now working perfect. I know this isnt a great answer but strange its the keys on a totally different brand laptop? Hope you get it sorted could you get back to me when you do and let me know? Im so curious now ....Hey possibly just uninstall the keyboard drivers in device manager reboot and see what happens when the pc reinstalls them? Cheers from Scott

Cleaning my monitor's screen

Absolutly they make special cleaners for LCD's, you definatly don't want to use windex or any other household cleaner.

They come with a microfiber cleaning cloth that works great!
Go to your neareast electronics or office supply store. Just ask for an LCD screen cleaner. The above pic is one that is sold at best buy, radioshack, and other stores.

Hope this helps
