Re: sound

Verify the sound device is enabled If there is no sound from the speakers or headset, use the Device Manager to determine the state of the sound hardware.

  1. Click Start , type manager into the search field, and select Device Manager . Alternately, click Start , Control Panel , Hardware and Sound , and then Device Manager .
  2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers .
  3. Do the following, depending on what is seen:
    • If a sound device is listed with a down arrow , the device is disabled. Right-click the sound device name and select Enable to re-enable the device. Go to the next step if problems continue after enabling the device.
    • If a sound device is listed and enabled , right-click the device name and select Properties to view more helpful troubleshooting information in the Device Status window. If Device Status shows that the device is working properly, the problem is likely related to sound settings, the speakers, or the audio cables and connections.

Try this >>>>

Power down your Compaq Presario F500 notebook computer. Remove the unit's internal battery from its housing compartment.
Use a screwdriver to unscrew and remove all of the screws from the bottom panel of your Compaq Presario F500. Use your hands to lift off the bottom panel, revealing the inside of the notebook computer.
Look for the CMOS/BIOS chip: It will be located in the center of your computer's motherboard, which is itself located in the center of the case.
Remove the small battery from its housing compartment on the CMOS/BIOS chip. Then, press and hold the "Power" button on the laptop's case for a few seconds. This will completely discharge all electricity from the device.
Replace the CMOS/BIOS' battery. Place the bottom panel of the notebook computer back on and screw it back into place. Place the Compaq Presario F500's battery back into its housing compartment and press the "Power" button to turn it on. Your CMOS/BIOS will now be completely reset.
Good luck and please let me know how you get on!!!!

Wifi suddenly stopped working on Presario F500. Shows no card in device manager


I could not tell what OS, or complete model number you are running. 1.) Please click here and choose your model number. There are three choices for the F500 (CTO, EA, or XX at the top of the list). 2.) On the next screen choose your OS (such as XP). 3.) This will take you to a page to download your driver. Scroll down to Driver - Network and choose the option that has the word driver in it. 4.) Download and run that.

Please let me know if you need any assistance at that point.

If you have a hidden partition on your harddrive you may have to access it during a reboot through one of your F keys, it varies on different brands. Or you may have to wipe your hard drive clean and reload windows and all of your device drivers from the Compaq website.
