First......... have you installed your sound card drivers. second, look at the loudspeaker on the bottom right of the taskbar, if it has a red line through it, it means sound is turned off. double click on it and enable sound. third, if all the above are ok, then go to.... control panel, sounds and see if your system speakers are set to deault. I had problems when I installed bluetooth and it defaulted to bluetooth speakers, which I dont have. Hope this helps.

Windows vista home premium error blu screen 0.000000a0 (non si spegne si riavvia dopo spegnimento(

I hope I can help, but it might take a little while. The first thing I suggest is to boot up in safe mode, then run anti-virus/malware software. If the virus software finds something, then try to reboot and see if it works. If not, then boot up in safe mode again and try checking for updates on drivers. Usually, at this point, I would check the video drivers first and reinstall from the cd. Sometimes just disabling the driver might work.
open the cpu and remove the RAM clean it with dry cloth and re-insert again.
If you need more help, let me know.

Good Luck. It might take some time to do all the checking, but..without reformatting the drive and reinstalling, it's about as good as it gets.

How to reformat the computer?

To reformat the windows vista.There are two options to approach the reformat:
  • Option #1: Boot from the Windows Vista DVD. This is more complicated to do, but it destroys all data and partitions.
  • Option #2: Re-install Vista without leaving the desktop. This preserves the previous installation in a folder called Windows.old. Not all info is wiped, however, and you can't destroy your partitions.
First, restart your system. When the computer starts to boot, look for an option before you get to the Windows screen that reads: “Setup” “CMOS,” or “Bios”. This varies between manufacturers. For example, on the boot screen, it says:
“F2 =Setup”.
The option will flash by quickly so be ready for it and react quickly. You may need to reboot a few times to catch it.
Once in the BIOS, look for a setting that says "Boot" or "Boot Sequence". You might have to dig through the menus with your keyboard’s arrow keys to locate the setting. In the listed as Boot Sequence. And to navigate to Startup, then Boot, and then Boot Priority Setting.
When you find the setting, change your DVD drive so that it occupies the top of the list. The hard drive that contains Windows Vista should be listed as second in the boot list.
And put the Windows Vista installation disc in the designated drive. Now, select the Save Changes and Exit option in the BIOS. The computer will restart and will attempt to read the optical drive you just assigned as the first bootable drive.
The system will use the Windows Vista disc to boot and the reformat and reinstall process will start. But You will need to reinstall any programs that are not bundled with Windows Vista and reinstate your preferences and personal files after reformatting the computer and reinstalling Vista.

Corrupted files of vista home basic

How did you know you had a Trojan Virus that came from your cam ?
Reinstall your op using the disk that came with it ,Then always keep a backup .
I've been online for over 10 years without a virus ,I will tell you like I tell my brother
stop going to the porn sites (the best of virus makers) and you will be virus free .If you keep more then one copy of your op everything will be fine.
Sorry to tell you like this but a virus like in real life and on the web will always be there but unlike real life you can make a copy on your computer if you do it enough you lose little and not it all.
