Re: no audio

No, the audio is part of the motherboard on most every laptop I've ever seen. There are many different ways that audio can be muted or lost, and I would suggest that first you try removing your speakers' drver. On your desktop, if you right-click on My Computer, select Properties, then the Hardware tab, you'll see a Device Manager button (on Windows XP, I assume). Select that, and look for any exclamation points (highlighted in yellow). If there are any, right click on the device that is highlighted, and select Uninstall. Re-boot the computer, and it should re-install the device with the problem solved. If it has the same highlight, you may need to update the driver.

What do i do?

The sound card in the computer could be damaged.

The audio drivers might not be properly installed.
First, check for windows updates and install any that indicate they are for your sound card/audio driver. They may be listed under optional updates.

Next, open Device Manager (search it in the start menu) and expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers (see pic). Right click the audio driver (Realtek High Definition Audio in the pic for example) select Uninstall. When the device is gone from the list, select ACTION at the top, then select SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. Give ti a restart if that didn't work.

Good luck!

Sound is on mute before entering ops. how to unmute

A) The hotkey is not Fn. That is the Function key. Press Fn and F8 hotkey at same time to decrease volume. Press Fn and F7 at same time to Mute volume.

B) Is 'ops' your system tray volume, or Device Manager? I suspect Device Manager.

C) Don't count on Windblows to upgrade your driver; or roll over driver; or play dead. (!O_O!)
DO count on Windoze to lose the address to the driver, though.

Suggest going to Asus Support, and download the Audio driver.

In the small window that comes up on the right, (Opening Audio_XP_xxxxxx), make sure there is a Green dot, in the small circle to the left of Save File.

If there isn't; left-click in the small circle to the left of Save File.

Then when fully downloaded in the small download window to the left; DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

In the next small window go to the far left, and click on
Extract all files.
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows click on Next, Next, and Finish.

Restart your computer if not asked to do so.
(Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Is it safe to go back to factory settings on my laptop

Absolutely! This is the way the computer came from the factory.

HOWEVER, be aware that;

1) Any programs you have downloaded, or installed, will be GONE.

2) Any documents you have downloaded, or made, will be GONE.

3) Any photos you have on the computer will be GONE.

4) Any videos you have on the computer will be GONE.

The Computer will go back to a time period BEFORE anything was installed, made, or downloaded, by you.

In this case you should copy all of your personal info off to disks, or flash drives, or an external harddrive.

Programs will have to be reinstalled.
You may also loose drivers.

Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
(Operating System)

If you loose networking (Internet), or audio (Sound), or what have you, it will be because the Drivers are lost.

(They are still there, but Windows has lost the address to them)

If so, post back on here, or post as a new problem, and we''l help you find the drivers you need, and info on how to download, AND install.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Computer will not power on

i would guess that the motherboard has been damaged, perhaps with excessive current or AC power out ? perhaps the CPU heatsink fan failed and damaged the CPU ?

what was the circumstance while the computer worked well , the last time you used it ?

did you leave it on while plugged into the wall AC power outlet -- perhaps overnight or for a lengthy time period , leaving the laptop unattended ?

do you know if the battery was working well , last time you used the computer ? was the AC ADAPTER WORKING WELL ENOUGH TO FULLY CHARGE THE BATTERY ? PERHAPS THE BATTERY WAS NOT CHARGED up siufficiently to allow power to turn ON THE LAPTOP, THUS W/O POWER FROM THE BATTERY AS A RESULT OF A BAD AC adapter, now the computer has no source .

here is a link to some information you can review to assit you .

let me know how you make out with these questions. i'd like to help you resolve or come to a conclusion .

When i reinstall my window it seem that the sound went missing

You can try going to IBM's site and downloading multiple sound card drivers for other models within 2 years of yours. They miss and match devices alot like Dell and HP does. Extract the drivers in seperate folders on your desktop and point the browse to one folder at a time until you kind the correct driver. I believe IBM will take your call free for issues like these even out of warrenty period.

Need solution

This sounds like an overheating problem to me. Try powering down the laptop, and then blowing the fans out with canned air.
