This seems to be a problem more with Realtec onboard sound than with a stand alone soundcard. You can try either updating the Realtec driver or using the generic windows driver and forget using the realtec functions. But with my computer the only true fix was to disable onboard sound and install a soundcard. Hope this helps.

    DVD player not working when trying to upgrade

    Check for the compatability of the Driver for the DVD player. Sometimes the Driver for HP Pavillion wouldnt work when operating system is changed or upgraded. Visit HP website to check if there is a DVD player Driver which you can download for Windows 7. Good Luck.

    Problem playing game tiger woods

    It sounds like you are having graphics problems. Let me explain, if a game requires resources that your graphics processor has then it will run slow. Sometimes a game wont run at all. This is what it sounds like. To troubleshoot this go in game and change the video settings. Set them as low as you can and see if the game smooths out. You may also try making sure that you video drivers are up to date. Outdated drivers can effect over all video performance. If worse comes to worse, do some research and find a video card that will best suit your budget and performance needs.

    HP Pavillion Programs freezing

    Suggest restoring the system to factory settings. You will lose all of your data so back it up first.

    Restore is either on disks or on recovery partition of hard drive. If you have recovery disks put first one in and reboot computer.

    When the computer starts you should see an option to hit F10 for System Restore/Recovery. Hit F10, click advanced settings and choose Destructive Restore. Follow the prompts.

    Will need to reload all programs after restore is done that did not come with computer such as Office.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi, I have exactly the same prob and I belive that it is in the amp module?! I am going to take mine in for repair as my other sony HT amp has just give up the ghost, (STR-DE435), it has a protector prob and is probably not worth repairing, although it is a great amp. If anyone knows the solution to this prob it would be great to hear it!!!
