I have recently installed Windows Vista Home Basic Edition(I had no problem when I had XP SP2). When I played sound, it played but only one speaker was working(the one without light and sound controller). Is it a hardware fault or some driver problem? My system is out of warranty.Please help me ASAP.
Additional System Information: Compaq Presario SR1235IL. purchased in 2004. 1 gb RAM. Speaker: JBL Platinum Series(2 speaker stereo). OS: Windows Vista Home Basic.

If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

Install Windows XP! But back-up your drivers first. Or take not of what they are called. - Windows XP Media Center Edition if you like High Quallity Graphic's. Windows XP professional if you want Speed and multi tasking. - Or Windows Vista Home Basic. - Make sure you do not obtain illegal copy's. They can lead to viruses on install. - Tom.

Right-click on the Bookshelf 2000 setup exe file, click Properties,
Compatibility, click Windows XP SP2, OK. Proceed as usual. I got that
from the Internet but I don't remember where. I'm using a Windows Vista
Home Basic (HP Compaq Presario, 32-bit) - I haven't tried it on our
Vista Ultimate (Core 2 Duo desktop 64-bit).
