Hi Steve

there is an icon on the status bar on the bottom right of the computer for the sound volume can you just make sure the volume hasn't been turned off. it a small speaker. If its ok you can try the following. Just one question.

Do you have any of the disks that came with the PC or did you but it second hand. If you have the disk you have to first uninstall the sound driver if they are not working properly before you can reinstall it.

Can you first check whats the story with the drivers in hardware manager. I'll tell you how to get to it. BE very careful in here you could cause major problems if you go changing settings in here so try and follow along and dont change anything just tell me what is happen in the settings.

Go to Start > you will see my computer icon. Right Click and go to properties. there are seven tabs at the top click hardwre > device manager > you need to scrool down to Sound, Video and game controller. Click to highlight it or double click to open it or click the small + sign to the left once highlighted it opens the menu. Can you come back and tell me what it looks like. don't go at anything else in here.

Could you make sure you speaker wire is plugged in properly. Im just going through the obvious. but it can get removed if you move the computer.

Samsung r40 reset to factory settings


hello there Start by pressing F4 when the BIOS "Samsung" screen is showing. This will allow you to restore the original operating system from the recovery partition, if is there. (Also try the other Fn keys - F6 and F8 may do something).

Otherwise you will need to beg, borrow or buy an XP Home installation CD and use that for a new installation. You can use the Samsung key on the bottom to activate it. You can get the R40 drivers from SamsungPC.

My friend got a Samsung R40 laptop as a gift, but it had a Korean O/S. I was able to load XP Professional on it, but now there's no audio. It says "no audio device installed." Got any...


when your friend give it to you did she/he also gives some cd installers? it says no audio device installed doesn't mean there's no audio card on it, it's just that windows xp doesn't support the audio card in the r40 laptop that you have. if you can do upgrade it to windows 7 it would be better because win 7 supports a lot of hardware. if you don't want just try to download the audio driver for you laptop. do you happened to know the audio card model of the laptop. you can see it as you turn on the your laptop you will see new hardware detected try to get the serial number of the device and ping me here so i can guide you were to download the sound card driver for you.thanks..

Sound wont work on my new dell a546s


Hi ,
Can you be more specific ?
Are you performing clean install ? In this case I believe it is hotfix issue, but on other hand if you do not have this hotfix windows will not install driver for audio. anyways this is not a bad thing to have, so install it and then try to install driver again.

Lost wireless - Ibm thinkpad r40


haha worrying isnt it...
after reinstallation of windows no drivers for blutooth , wireless quite often modem and same vga,
windows by default does not install because need specific software ...(drivers)
what you need to do is first of all find out what wifi it is ; like wlan400 e.g.
you then need to download and install the driver for it .as soon as the driver is present windows will detect and install device,
look in device manager for devices with no drivers intalled.
same precedure for each device.

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

Verbatim external 640gb harddrive is unreconised.CONSTANTLY.


ok.. here's a few ideas...

Before Connecting the external drive:

first close ALL RUNNING PROGRAMS
REINSTALL DRIVERS..REBOOT
make sure no programs are running once again...
make sure your usb cable is WORKING...

NOW...
Connect.....Wait for it (a minute or two MAX)....

If this doesn't work, then I suggest using a few google searches..
Try the following/similar: Searchwords

External Hard Disc Recovery Tool (or toolkit)

*Also, Never NEVER erase any default/hidded files that came preinstalled/included on that drive....(eg...system files)...

let me know if this helped...c-tekk@hotmail.com
